If I recall, there is a "factory reset" of some sort. Have you tried it?
It sounds as if your problem is at least slightly different, especially if it happens all the time. Mine was intermittent...
From the various responses, it's clear that there is/was some issue with the remote/on/off circuitry. I will be interested to hear what Sharp Tech Support has to say at this point. Mine was new when I talked to them and there may be more data points now.
Please post back here with your experience.
Best of luck
The projector can not take more than three minutes in standby mode. The standby light turns off and the projector does not respond to remote control or the manual buttons.
At this point if I unplug / plug the projector returns in standby mode again, and before the problem happens I turn on the projector (I turn it on quickly when I see the standby light is turned on), then the projector turns on properly and I can visualize an entire movie without problems. I can also turn it off properly, but when I turn off the projector and it returns to standby mode after a while the problem happens again ( The standby light turns off ).

It seems that the Standby circuit not working properly. I do not know if this circuit is independent of the electric circuit or is a part of any motherboard projector.
The remote control not working because the stanby circuit is off and this circuit has to keep on the projector IR receiver.

I understand it's not a software problem, so I don't see that "factory reset" will solve anything.

Best Regards.

Good description. I wish I could help. If I'm understanding things, then it is a continuous problem, not intermittent.
A couple of things:
I would try a factory reset, what can it hurt?
Perhaps someone else has a similar issue and can suggest something.
Also, the RF AC switch that I use would seem to be a pragmatic solution...In a perfect world, Sharp would step up and solve it. Let us know how it goes.

I use those RF AC switches in several applications around the house, I think for the low cost it's definitely worth a shot before trying to send it into Sharp.

+1.
With Sharp out of the front projector market, I wonder what kind of tech/warranty support they can offer?
I'm with Zombie, better the devil you know...
Another thought is that from what I can ascertain, the PJ works well, it's just annoying to turn on/off.
It seems there is a significant pent up demand for the Z30K.
Ordinarily, your particular problem would probably affect your ability to sell it. However, at the moment, that may not be true.
If it bothers you too much, sell it.

I have contacted with Sharp Technical Support and they told me that it may be a problem with the power supply of the projector, but they would have to check it to make sure.

Could be the power supply if the projector works properly when is power on?

I bought the projector in Australia and in Spain I have only 1 year warranty that expires in late February 2015.

What I can do? I send the projector to check?

I'm afraid as this model is not distributed in Spain and they have no experience in repairs this model.

Thanks.

I guess it can be a faulty capacitor in the power supply board. Not sure how easy it is to get at to swap it out if you can get one from Aliexpress or the like.

Perhaps Zombie will chime in. He is our resident technical wizz.
What did Sharp support suggest to do? If it's still under warranty, then I can not see a huge down side to having them take a crack at it.
Please keep us posted...

if it works ok otherwise, it sounds like it could be a bad cap in the standby circuit. If it energizes for a few minutes once power is applied and is ok once it's powered on, I would try the inexpensive RF AC device first before sending it in.

I have it connected to a UPS and I can cut power to the projector with a button on the UPS. The UPS is accessible and I can do this without any effort.

The question is:
This bad cap in the standby circuit, Could it cause any major breakdown in the projector?

Thanks

how long has it been happening? Does it always recover when you cycle the power?

The problem started in late November and initially passed randomly every two weeks.

It always recover when I cycle the power but occasionally I've needed two cycles.

even with the firmware update, the VW600 cannot match the x-talk performance of the 30K. You may also notice some flicker that you wouldn't have seen with the 30K. I've calibrated a number of VW600's and own the VW1100.

most will find the Sony 3D very good, it's just not as flawless in these 2 areas (x-talk and flicker)

That is what I am just a little bit concerned about. I agree - Nothing switches as fast and clean between L/R as a DLP projector.
I will try both - the Sony TDG-BT500A glasses and my existing Xpand X104 glasses with the RF dongle. Does anyone know if the X104/Dongle glasses are compatible with the Sony VW projectors ?

I have been wondering if Zombie or anyone else has gotten the Dimensional Optics Value 3D glasses to compare to the Sharp 20's. I have been comparing the one pair that I have and so far I like them especially since they are so light and are good for those who wear glasses. Love to know what others think.

I just ordered a pair from amazon, they should be here Tuesday.

it should be easy to use the Xpand RF adapter with the Sharp, I just have to figure out the pin-out's on the 1/8 jack -> 3 pin VESA.

@ melgon - i don't think the Xpand 104 RF's are going to work with the Sony. These will definitely work and are cheap:

I thought you had the 105's that work with the JVC. I was referring to these sold by Dimensional Optics. I would also love to see if you can find out how to use the Xpand RF adapter with the Sharp. I have a number of emitters if you need one to try.

Dimensional Optics IR glasses that seem to work very well. Love to see you compare them to the Sharp 20's

http://www.ebay.com/itm/251689605801...AIT&rmvSB=true

If you like P.M me and I will send you a pair to test.

sorry if that post wasn't clear, I ordered the Dimensional Optics IR glasses from Amazon, they will be here this week to check out.

I was just thinking about wiring in the Xpand RF adapter to the 30K so we can see how some of the RF glasses look, I have several different pair here including the Sony and Epson RF.

Hope you ordered the Value View glasses the other IR glasses that Dimension sells are too heavy and not as good.



If you need any extra Xpand emitters let me know. I have a bunch from that I got included with the Mitsubishi closeout

As the power cycle through the UPS affect other units, I bought the RF AC device and I will not send the projector to repair while it works correctly.
I hope it works well for a long time.

The 30K auction is getting a good bit of attention, I bet it goes past 2K with another day left.

wow...almost makes me want to put mine up but what to replace it with that will be as good is the problem. I just love this projector and I hardly do 3D. The fact that I can sit right under it and not hear a peap is another reason to keep it and the bulbs are apparently cheap.

This unit has a very efficient cooling system compared to some other models I have here and it's also nice and quiet as well. I have it 2 feet behind my head and run high lamp for 3D, I can barely hear it. My .95 Planar and JVC RS46/X35 are noticeably louder in high lamp.

the fast shutdown time is hard to believe + very fast HDMI switching.

from all the bids so far, it's clear someone wants this projector.

last second bid snipe with seconds left to the auction!

I'll check out the glasses this weekend. 1 thing I noticed when trying them on, I feel like I might be missing the sides that block the light. they are nice and light though + good build quality for the price.
