I suggest you go to eserviceinfo and search for the manual on this unit, sometimes this indicates a filter door open or bulb carrier door not closed. But to be honest without seeing the manual ?, however you didn't say if the unit was working despite the lights or not. Check the doors to all compartments and see if they are closed properly, other than this advice I suggest you seek an engineer to check it out
You don't need the remote. I lost the remote years ago, so it forced me to read the manual. When powering up the unit (after it says "wait...", press and hold the "On" button. It will tell you the keys are unlocked.
Great product, I've had mine now for 7-8 years with 0 problems.
Apparently, the above posted steps do work, but they are finicky. The manual suggests that you do the aforementioned steps with the remote - I had tried with the remote and when that did not work I tried directly on the controls on the unit itself. Neither had worked - after multiple attempts, hence the posting above. The solution was that the various steps need to be done speedily - when I previously did it I apparently did not press the sequence rapidly enough. Nothing in the manual suggests that this is the case (and in fact I thought I had previously followed the steps in rapid succession on at least one of the many times I had tried, but apparently not quickly enough). I never could get this rapid succession of steps to work with the remote (as the manual said I needed to), but I did ultimately get the rapid succession of steps to work when done directly to the unit itself. The first three steps need to be completed within approximately 1-1.5 seconds, the final push of the volume+ button did require 2 or more seconds before the process was recognized (and complete). Never did have a single FixYa party try to address my issue - perhaps you only really get responses from them when you pay for their monthly service.
If your bulb finally reaches it's end before you have the chance to replace it you unit will shut itself down and go into a permanent standby mode. Changing the bulb alone will not remedy the issue. The solution is quite simple but not posted in the manual or anywhere else that I could find for that matter! All that is required is to hold down the HELP button on your remote for 10 seconds while aiming at the infrared sensor on the unit. This will reset the units bulb timer and remove it from the standby mode.
Using the remote control for your projector, turn the unit on, then select 'menu' on the remote. On the menu that pops up in the screen, select 'SERVICE', then 'DISPLAY DEVICE', then 'INSTALLATION'... once you select that, scroll over to the "RESET" under the lamp hours... this should reset it.
Here is a link to the owners manual for your unit.
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....
The owners manual says that if the red light is flashing, it is an indicator that it is ready to be turned on (use remote or onboard on button); flashing red & green - too high temperature inside, the unit is overheated. Check and clean the air filters; If the red light is steady, abnormal condition and you have to call for service.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. good luck and kind regards.
