    Hey guys any help here would be great. Yesterday I was given a Sharp XG-E690U. I was told it "didnt work", it powers up fine (power light turns red, no other lights). The history of the projector is unknown. I wondering if it could just be the bulb that has burnt out. If you cant tell from the pic the bubble on the bulb is cloudy, and on the one side of the bubble there is thicker white area (looks burnt to me but I have no projector bulb experience).
    Thanks in advance for the help

    Sounds and looks like a bulb burn out to me. I'd bet if you took it (the bulb) to a sharp dealer or repair shop, they could get you a replacement and/or tell you if it truly is bad.

    Just take an Ohm Meter or any continuity tester to the Bulbs Socket connections. If it's good you will get a reading. If it's bad you will get an infinity reading or no continuity.
