Just sent in the flash unit to be repaired, and I got it back and it is still malfunctioning, just not as bad. When I go into custom settings to put the flash on REMOTE (to shoot in commander mode on my D300), It always locks up once I put it on remote. I can put in on Master and Master RPT just fine, but it always freezes when I put it on Remote. Also, when I put it on SU-4, it just starts firing away, and I can't get it to stop without removing the batteries.
I'm bummed, I really needed this for a shoot today. Should I just call the company that repaired it?

I get many calls every day from customers that the lamp light is flashing and they want to charge the bulb alone. I also get many calls everyday from customers that have bought that new lamp from a web site and installed it themselves and the unit still does not work why? A word of warning any malfunction with the color wheel or the ballast will cause the lamp light to flash, and what is even worst allot of the units you can not change the color wheel by itself it is inside the light engine a costly repair
I have found since the dlptelevisions have come out customers want to change their own lamps. This saves them money and techs time to work on other problems, many customers make the mistake of not putting the door that houses the lamp back on before trying the unit. the latch mechanism must be in tact or unit will still flash lamp light bad.
Hello; Your model # shows that is a 30 in. set. First try unplugging both pieces and plug both back in a minute or longer (doesn't matter). If still bad, your monitor has bad inverter boards or main unit. The set has 2 or 4 of them. You must replace all. About $700.00. Sharp told me to replace all 4 , but I was able to force them to stay on, which proved they were OK. Later I took in the same model for repair. I swapped the main units ( the big board in a metal box ) and my first set started working! The Main unit is not available, but it can be sent to Sharp for repair ( about $250 - $300 ). The swap that I did proves the problem can be inverters OR the main unit. A lot to gamble with here! You may find these boards cheap on the net ( EBAY, Shop Jimmys dot com & many others. To get your part #'s go to Encompass Parts dot com and key in your model # . John
Oops. It's possible that the incorrectly inserted plate caused the machine to malfunction. It may need to be sent to the factory so the computerized controls can be recalibrated. Call Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) Customer Service 800-989-2299.
You have what is commonly known as the "Red Ring of Death" There are a few different types of rings (denoted by which actual quadrants of the ring are lit), the most common one can TRULY only be fixed by an experienced tech. You should eject any discs, turn it off, eject the hard drive, take out any other storage devices, unplug all cables from the unit, and mail it to Microsoft for repair. Hopefully it is still under warranty. I got a refurbished unit sent back to me just a week after I sent my own off to them when this happened to me a couple years ago, I had a custom face plate on mine so I had to remove that as well when I sent it in because I was not guaranteed to get my actual unit back.

It could be a simple connection that is loose and just need to be put back into position, or it could be a controller circuit that is bad and needs to be replaced. This is not a user repairable problem. It should be sent in for repair.
I sent my camera into Canon for repair. They said the flash was malfunctioning, and there was something wrong with the flash exposure control. The repair cost about $87. It took approximately 10 days from the time I sent the camera in until the time I got it back.
