It turns out that i fixed this issue, I opened up my projector and took a look at the board to make sure that there is nothing wrong. It turns out that the projector needed a good cleaning. Just use caned air to clean out the projector make sure that all the vents are clear and not blocked. (note: do not spray the caned air while the bulb is hot, if you do this the bulb can cause the pressurized air to temporary flame up, Please make sure the projector has had at least 30 minutes to cool off) While the board is off press the power button and the projector should power up. Replace the covering, and this projector will work.

My Sharp Projector xr10x will not come on, two LED solid red lights are displaying, bulb was recently replaced, was working fiine until we turned it off and turned it back on Please help!

The fault seems related to the lamp but it will be good to revisit the replacement of the lamp, check the lens cover section , the lamp cover as there are safety micro switches that need to be active to start the lamp. Also the filter must be cleaned. Check the power supply , check the connectors and fuse. If none of these rectify then the fault can be within the power supply or processor board.

I got a free sharp notevision PG-m20x. I plug it

if you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do hear it, the lamp may need replacing. if the lamp is new, there is a power supply problem.

Yamaha LPX 500 home cinema projector isn't lighting up

The reason for a red light is replacement of lamp or it is running too hot. Have you checked for proper venting, and cleaned them recently. The bulb usually lasts 2000 hours, so you may need another.
