The Fix Ya rep suggested that I try the "Reset" button located next to the Audio out on the side of the projector; this solution proved to be the fix I needed. I was able to get the lamps to warm up and get into the menu to cut back the bulbs/power consumption on start-up, allowing the projector to function for a problem-free 4 hour period Unfortunately, I had the same issue this morning, but the same fix worked again.

did you get the bulb from sanyo, or from another company that sells aftermarket bulbs? some of those are cheaply made and malfunction shortly after if they work at all. find your reciept, take it back and get a new one.

Check if you can see any dust clogging the outlets- use a brush and vacumm cleaner to clean every air vent around the case. there should be a few. There is usually a user replaceable air filter on one of the vents- un clip it and vaccum both sides of it. If it is too dirty clean it with soap and water squeeze it out and leave it to dry before re-installing. Projectors generate a lot of heat and conversely they are very sensetive to blocked air vents.
Hope this helps

A common problem for these projectors, the light gets bent around 3 different color filters inside there, for some reason the blue one gets burned out the fastest. It always makes a halo, we found it cheaper to replace the unit than fix it, They wanted $1,000 to fix it, all it is is a filter, but they don't tell you that. You can find your exact machine on ebay for parts, but chances are it will have the same problem. I have the same machine here, I fixed it myself, It isn't perfect, but it is a lot better than it was. I took a glass panel from a cell phone, it fits perfect, and it stopped the halo, the glass is bullet proof and high heat proof, the way I discovered this, I shred old cell phones for parts and and computers for parts, I was in the process of shredding the projector, I found a cell phone screen in the ashes of our burn pile, untouched, not a scratch, so,, I put it to use, you can try it. It is cheaper than a $1,000 repair job. If you need more info on this, write a reply, I'll be happy to try and help.
