Question about Multimedia Projectors

XR1X sharp projector

The church We are associated with inherited this projector when we bought the church, The people showed the projector working and about a month later when it was tried to be used, there was no video. The lamp seemed okay, the flashing lamp indicator indicated that the lamp needed to be replaced. The inside of the unit was extremely dirty and dusty. Cleaned that out, I checked the continuity of the old lamp and it showed open so then ordered a new lamp and still the unit will not work.
I am a former tv technician from years back and did not get much of a chance to work on these. I see something about a ballast? Where and what are the part numbers of these ballasts, where to order and how much do they cost? How do I check to keep the costs from going up higher much further...
Many thanks

Reset the lamp timer (hold down menu, down arrow, and enter buttons, then power on).

My church screen projector shows little bubbles on the screen and every time I put up worship songs or photos on the screen in church, you see bubbles, and It does not look good

If it's an LCD base projector, then you'll need to clean out the dust particles that have accumulated on the LCDs that will require you to open up the projector, which I wouldn't recommend if you're not too familiar as there are many components inside.

Multi Media Projector Problem

Open power point first, open full screen and proceed. Do not double click on the file.

In the explorer window, you can change the .ppt association away from the easy worship tool and restor it to power point. This will open .ppt files with power point.

Good luck

Yellow oval

It is possible that the lenses are dirty.(Someone might have touched the lenses with wet hand)
Also check if the illuminating bulb is working fine. Like how old is it and does it need a replacement.
This should just work fine

Sharp XR10X Screen size

depending on the age of your computer, some of the older video cards in XP only will allow you to show video in 600x800 resolution. When you want to show video go ahead and change both of your display properties (both the primary and the secondary) to 600x800. See if that works.

If that is not what you are refering to go right click on your desktop and look for the properties or settings of your graphics card. it may say graphics properties . In that area there will be tons of options like (when showing video only show it on the secondary monitor) play around with the different settings on your graphics card.
Good luck

Input 1

We have a similar problem with our sharp projector at church where the remote is on a long cable up to the projector as it is too far for the infrared. Sometimes it quits listening to the remote and we've found that unpluging the remote cable and plugging it back in restores the operation. Apparently, the long cable introduces noise into the remote input and gives it illegal codes sometimes.
Does yours only do this with that one button?
Hope Ya Fix it! Grace and Peace to you....
