I just bought this projector and I have a Mac Book Pro and had no problems hooking the two together, other than making sure I had the DVI-VGA adapter.  
You will have to press your function key and the F7 key - at least on the Mac Book, to get the computer to recognize the projector.  
Hope this helps.

the power supply is bad and need to be replaced. you can get the part and do it yourself, or send it to a sharp service center. either way, try av solutions in ny. they're really good.

HI there

This could be a costly exercice as this is a common Projector Mainboard failure.

You can either replace the board or have it repaired.

SHARP XR-1S won't turn on

OK - I've fixed mine (so it looks) - loads of dust inside unit seemed to caused the problem - vacuuming vents (as the manual prescribes) just shifts all the dust inside around and obviously causes some disruption.. solution - remove 4 screws underneath and lift off top (carefully) remove side panel screws (where Av inputs are) again carefully. Now go around each vent at the front, side and underneath and give areal good blow in each a few times. Plumes of dust and rubbish fly out - keep going until it's all clear. Reassemble and fingers crossed. Mine then started up and didn't turn off - there's a horrible burning smell (dust settling near lamp I presume) which is now fading. Been working 30 mins now with no trouble!
Hope it works for you - will post another update if I have any further problems - no news is good news!
