Re: Installing new Lens
Remove the lens cover (screw on bottom front of lens, and twist the cover off). if you don't see it from there, remove the 4 side screws and take off the top cover of the projector. you will definitely see it from there.

these are not a current model. So you can not get them new. You can definately find one in good shape that is used. I have three of them and love them! They are extremely bright, and look very good. Loaded with features and are very rugged. But they are a little large in size and a bit heavy, but if you are using in perminant install should not matter. Bulbs are readly available and range from $160 to $200 for 1400 hours. Should have no problem finding service center, any good tech should be able to get parts and service, but you probally won't need one.Bargon in this brightness level. One thing I would ask you though is what will your source material be? These can do Hd but they are not 1080 p native. So if you want to do wide screen say from a blue ray player you might want to consider a newer model. Hope this helps.
Custom Install and Production
This would seem to be heat-related as these lamps get hot rather quickly. The first quick and dirty solution - try cleaning the filter which is under a panel on the bottom of the projector. Another fix - be sure the projector is plugged into an image source; i.e. computer or DVD player. Sometimes these units will go into standby mode without a signal. More difficult fix - be sure the fan is runningn. When it shuts down, the fan should keep running until the lamp cools, then it will shut down. If the fan isn't working the temperature build-up with shut the projector off. Replacing the fan may be a job for a tech.
either the lamp hours are close to or exceeding 1400 hrs and the lamp needs replacing, or the ballast is starting to fail. with the projector on, check the lamphours in the menu. after you replace the lamp (if it needs it), reset the lamp timer by holding down the down arrow, right arrow, and enter buttons, then press power.
This is one of two things. Most likely there is a piece of dust or other obstruction right on top of the blue panel. I'm guessing that your smudge is in the lower center of the screen - that is where these usually occur. The other possibility is that the blue LCD panel is starting to deteriorate and the components separating. This is extremely expensive to repair and Sharp will end up giving you an estimate that approaches the replacement cost for a comparable new projector.
Use this sequence initially.Try turning the projector and source machine off.
Turn source machine on.
Turn projector on.
I can not recall without checking the manual but look for the menu where you can set the source resolution. Some projectors allow quite comprehensive selection and others very limited to zero choice.
This is not a lamp issue, but the digital signal processing.
Typically the Pixel Map processor is not processing the pixel coming in to be mapped to the correct pixel on the display block.
If a digital problem in could either be a circuit malfunction or software (IC rom issue) which really you will need to take to a local authorised service shop.
