    I think I have the same problem:

    when I power up my projector, the lens cover opens but the bulb does not light on and after 10 seconds the cover shuts automatically. "Power" and "lamp replace" lights are flashing for 15 seconds and then nothing more....

    I have seen it could be fix by a kind of hard reset with an internal button but I do not know where this button is....

    I watched about three movies on my new Z5 and then the same thing happened! it shut down and the 'replace lamp' light started flashing. I bought a new lamp and it still will not work... a Sanyo technician told me that it is likely the ballast the powers the lamp that is the problem... not that this possibility helps me any I am in the middle of Africa with no hope of finding Sanyo Z5 ballast...perhaps my projector will make a good coffee stand :-)

what about the Projector Condition leds: POWER, WARNING and LAMP REPLACE? How are they lit? For good measure you should also clean the air filter (the projector might not be getting enough air to cool the lamp)

PLV-Z5 Projector, The change lamp light was flashing and closing the machine down straight after opening the slide, I changed the globe and it still does the same, I can not set/reset globe replacement...

It will continue to do this until you reset the counter. I'm not familiar with Sanyo projectors, so I'm not sure of the steps to do this. Some projectors have a sequence of buttons you push to reset it, others stay on long enought for you to go through the menu and reset it. Sometimes the new lamp comes with those instructions. If you don't still have those papers, or the owner's manual, you can go on-line to contact the manufacturer and they can tell you how to do it.

PLV-Z1 no longer powering up - Ready light is green and the Lamp light is red

I have a Sanyo XU35. Mine was starting up and showed a picture for about 15 - 30 seconds then shutting down. My lamp warning light was not coming on. When I put it in for repairs it turned out to be the lamp that needed replacing. The technician said it is not uncomman for the lamp to be gone and the lamp warning light not to come on. I got my lamp on e-bay from ping_ngo for a great price.
