Just picked up a used Sharp XV-Z17000 on ebay. It has a faulty DMD. A few mirrors are stuck. The simple fix is to just swap it out with a new DMD. But I had to get the model number off of the DMD inside the projector first to make sure I order the correct one. The tear down was pretty simple with the use of the Service Manual I paid $5 for. Here is the light engine design as shown in the service manual:
Physically the light engine is very compact. I'm surprised they found a way to pack two irises (one manual and one dynamic) into such a small amount of space.
I also found a couple markings showing the light engine is OEM'ed from Delta:
Dynamic Iris Mechanism
And the IR blaster for the 3D glasses is HUGE
Should take all of 20 minutes to get this XV-Z17000 back to life once the DMD arrives. The DMD is model number 1910-6137 for anyone interested.
