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.
