Question about Televison & Video

5 Answers

When I try to turn on my Sanyo PLCXF12NL Projector it cycles on for a second and then shuts down. Both the green power and red "lamp" light are on and there appears to be a "flash" of light before it powers off. It this a burnt out lamp or some other problem? What should I do?

    This is a projector not a projection TV.

Re-seat the lamp first
check ventilation (where the exhaust fan blows)

if issue is the same, a lamp replacement is needed (maybe burnt out or faulty)

I think this is a faulty lamp in need of replacement.

The lamp should be tested for continuity, and eventually replaced.

    The symptoms are the same as a broken lamp,
    try first the projector on a different ac outlet, just in case.

    To know if a lamp has blown, or is defective, you start inspecting the lamp visually, if it looks burned , than it needs probably to be replaced.

    To know if a lamp has blown you can use a multimeter and test the lamp for continuity.

    Post me back your feedback if you want, I will go offline soon, but I will answer you within 24.

    Thanks

Lamp LED should be lit when the projector is in Standby. However, the problem you are describing sounds like one of two issues. Either the lamp is bad and needs replaced, or there is a power supply fault. If you have tried replacing the lamp already, make sure you reset the lamp counter or the projector may still not function properly.

does the temp warning light come on when the projector shuts off? if so you may also try cleaning the air vent filters and ensure there is proper air flow around the projector. if that checks out then have the projector serviced as the power supply is likely suspect.

Starts to power on,then shuts down


Have you checked the filters? I have a Sanyo PLV-75 and had a similar problem.  The normal fan would come on when the unit was first started, then after a few seconds the secondary fan came on and then the unit would shut down.  Called tech support and they asked if I had cleaned the filters. I did it, and it worked great.  Check the manual for where the filters are and hit them first before getting a new bulb.  Hope it helps!

My projector doesn't stay on. what's wrong?


either the lamp cannot strike (meaning a ballast or lamp issue) or there the fans are not up to speed to sufficientl;y cool down the lamp and therefore shut down to avoid damage.

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.
