Question about Sharp Notevision PG-M10X Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Video turns on and off

I bought a used pg-m10x, so even though it claims to only have 70 hours of use, I don't know the actual number. I have two problems:

One, I can't get the projector to work with a laptop. I haven't tried a desktop yet, because I don't own one. Occasionally I can get it to make a picture, but its wavy, often in triplicate, and the colors are way off.

The second, and more important problem, is that the video cuts off momentarily, usually for about 5 seconds at a time at random intervals. The projector will also make a little beeping noise when this happens. The bulb does not seem to turn off when this happens, it is just the video that cuts out. Also, seemingly related to this, is that some of the times it starts up it won't turn on and the red light next to the "on" light turns on.

Can you help me with these problems?

PS3 Power Surge.

Get a surge protector for your most loved systems, that way the worst case scenario is you will need a cord replacement. Unplugging it when it's not in use may also cool it down.

Loud buzz/whirring noise, need help diag and fix

If Samsung the color wheel (part number BP96-01579A) is suspect number 1.

Wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and commonly fails= High pitched sound or fan like sound---and when it fails (shatters) you will have a grinding sound and set should shut down.

There is an easy way to know---with owner manual remove the lamp unit (its a cartridge) and look where the lamp faces--if pieces of the wheel are missing etc the wheel is gone.

Most of the wheels are customer replaceable if you are handy. You Tube even has video instructions for most models for this repair--most sources that sell the part also provide instructions--for a first time person doing this it takes around a hour.

see attached photo of typical color wheel.

I have a General Lee radio. Bought it used from a pawn shop for a really good price ($70, don't think they know what it is). I turned it on worked great, for maybe 12 hours off and on. The next day it...

depending on how old it is, it could have bad caps. Could be the switching transistor, mic... Any number of things. It is the kind of thing where you have to start checking things down the line looking for the issue. Start with the simple things like the mic, cold solder joints. Look for obviously burnt parts. After that it gets a bit more technical checking parts in the TX section.

Hopefully its just a bad mic wire which would cause the radio to have no RX. Try a new mic. Good luck!

Turning on and off all by itself

Owners Manual, Pg 18, TV Auto Function.
"If a video feed is connected to the TV VIDEO IN jack during the installation, that signal is used to trigger system turn on. Even when the receiver is turned off, the presence of a signal at the TV VIDEO jack will automatically cause the receiver to turn on. As long as the signal is present, the receiver will remain on. When the TV or other source is turned off, the receiver will automatically retrun to a standby mode within five minutes."

Try using a another video input.

I can't fill up the 2MB limit to the maximum. It stops loading at approximately 70%.

Even though your player gas a capacity .is 2mb.The actual memory which you can use is around 70 to 80% .Because rest of the space is used to store protected system and boot data.The same happen in every memory device, be it a thumbdrive , memory card etc

Poor gas mileage on 2008 Ford taurus

Are you using the correct grade of fuel.
Manufacturers claim that a car will do 28 to the gallon.
This is done under ideal conditions at a constant speed on a rolling road.
Wind, hills, overtaking and tire pressures will decrease fuel mileage.
Your car is ok. Don`t expect much more unless you want to drive at 56mph
good luck

Sharp PG-M10X projector

Tel 703 377 7121 Hi Allan
It might be a digital or optical problem. This symptom was often part of the CRT type projector setup but i have not seen in the digital single lens type.
Is the lamp sitting 100% proper. Have you displayed the content machine and source on another display device? Was the machine dropped or knocked? It is an unusual symptom to have just be replacing the something else has occurred.
If a digital problem in could either be a circuit malfunction or software (IC rom issue)
