    Hi everyone
    Im hoping someone can help me with an old Sharp XG-1100U projector. I bought it on ebay and it worked fine for months but the image was pretty dim.I got a new lamp for it and then for 5 minutes it had a really bright image but then powered off the lamp.The fan however still was on.I thought the new lamp might have died so i put the old lamp back in and the same thing happened.The lamp came on for about 5 minutes and then tuned off again.If I try to power it off and on again it doesnt work.However if I leave the projector off overnight and try the next day it will start up, lamp is on and after 5 min off again. The lamps I beleive are ok but is it possible that some other component died beacause of the brightness of the new lamp.
    I appreaciate any advice
