Hello
Welcome

Thanks for using JustAnswer

 

Sharp projectors sometimes wont start up unless you reset the lamp hours

 

You do this by holding down on the projector itself whilst in standby menu/help.....enter.........and arrow down then press standby on the lamp hours will be reset and appear on screen

 

 

Let me know if you need more information please

ok turn the projector on power light comes on green lamp light comes on green starts solid then starts blinking no light from bulb stays solid green for a little then starts blinking again still no light from bulb it does this sequence a few times then the lamp and power light go solid red

Hello

 

Please initially check the lamp door switch is being activated as the lamp door goes on it closes a switch

 

If not this then the lamp is not being fired by the ballast

 

Let me know how this goes please

how do i do this check?

The lamp door makes contact with a tiny switch usually on the front but could be on the back, if this switch isnt closed the machine wont start up....

 

I'm pretty sure its just on that ledge were the lamp cover goes on near the front

the top goes down and as far as I can tell turns the switch on. any way to check?

 

HMM if it presses and switches ok you can feel it do this it may be worth discounting this as being faulty

 

After this it gets a lot harder i'm afraid as it may be the ballast not firing the lamp in which case I dont think you can do anymore, the original lamp may have damaged the ballast if it failed violently?

do you have a suggestion where i could send for repair

Hello

 

You could really do with a Sharp service agent to do this I would suggest you ring them or use the service locater part of the website www.sharp.com
