Question about Sharp XR-10X Multimedia Projector

3 Answers

My Sharp XR-10X unit just suddenly stopped working in the middle of a presentation. No lights, no sound, nothing. Any ideas? I've tried to open up the cover, but with no luck. How can I open up the back cover without breaking it? If I find a big black spot where a control panel should be, I know to "recycle it"! :-)

    Too late ... opened it up ... found a rest button on the inside on the control panel ... located and tested the fuse ... other than that ... nothing ...
    Any idea as to the cost of repairs on something like this?

  • valpopreache Feb 12, 2010

    I found a small button on the top of the control panel marked "Service" ... that may or may not be the "termo cut off" to which you were referring. Is this cut off located on this top control panel, or is in underneath, nearer to where the fuse is located?
    I can get an exact replacement for about $350 ... Sharp wants $155 for labor and shipping before parts. I'm willing to pay the $155 labor and shipping if all a knowledgeable person has to do is push a reset button ... in other words, no cost for parts.

Most likely cause of the problem is termo protection, it has to be reset. I would not recommend you to open the projector by yourself. You simply wouldn’t know what to do with it.

The solution by satavlad was spot-on! Just unscrew the top case off, and you'll see the red button to the left of the lens. Click on it, and voila! Now I just need to figure out why it happened in the first place and to avoid it happening again.

Satavlad. . .you rock! I loosened the screws on the bottom and then took the top off. Had a little trouble with one side letting loose but after working with it, it snapped out. I wasn't applying enough pressure. . .I was scared. Pushed the red button at the front of the projector and now everything is back to normal.

Problem with Sharp XR-10X The power light blinks red

According to the manual, a red blinking light indicates that the lamp cover is open. Try reseating the lamp and making sure everything closes up right. If the light is still blinking, it is most likely a problem with the projector itself and you may need to find out about getting it serviced.

New bulb in now wont work - no power - wont turn on to reset lamp

first, make sure you have the correct lamp. the lamp for the xr-10x-l looks like the xr-10x, but the plugs are different (common mistake). make sure you have the AN-XR10L2/1, not the AN-XR10LP/1. to reset the lamp timer (with the projector plugged in but off), hold down the enter, down arrow, and menu buttons and press the power.

Cannot remove lamp assembly from Sharp XR-10X projector

flathead screwdriver under the lamp handle from the front and a sharp push down on the screwdriver handle (but don't break it) will dislodge it. it wedges in there pretty good.

Sharp XR-10X Bulb works once then nothing

this is something which sharp didnt foresee!!!!!!!!!!
sharp has two identical models
sharp xr10x & the newer model xr10xl.both the lamps look alike , however both have a different rating & reverse connector!!
i.e both cannot be interchanged!however if u have the old xr10x & if u try to fit the new bulb which is lower in wattage, it will explode in 20 mins
if you have bought a used projector , then u wont know if someone has interchanged the ballast!!
as this model was discontinued 2 years back!!!!
so confirm the model , it is mentioned under sharp name or at the bottom
good luck

Sharp XR 10X lamp replacement issues

I sent mine in. They changed the bulb and cleaned the unit. The one thing they did suggest that seemed helpful was to upgrade the firmware. They did this as part of the service. That may be your problem, but I don't know that the firmware is upgradable. Yes indeed, they do charge an outrageous price!! I went through Sharp because they would guarantee the work, and I didn't want to buy two bulbs.

You will need to open it up and flip this little breaker switch. It has gotten to hot and tripped itself. Dust it out while you are in there.
