Question about Sanyo PLV-Z4 Multimedia Projectors

1 Answer

Loss of picture

I've had my Sanyo PLV Z4 projector for about 2 years and in the last few months when I turn the projector on it is common that I lose the picture on my projector screen. No loss of sound. I have to turn off the projector and turn it back on. Sometimes I cannot turn off the projector and I have to unplug it. This may happen within the first few minutes of the projector being turned on or it may happen after 10 minutes of use. I have Directv for my TV source. It also happens when I play back a show recorded on my DVR sometimes.

any ideas? Is it definitely the projector?

thanks

    I have the same problem. The picture goes away after about 10 mins, sometimes at comes back after a few seconds other times longer. No idea what to do, I have had the projector for about 2 years.

    This did not work. The signal through the HDMI cable does not show after about 10 mins but component cables still work. Thanks for providing help.

Yes, it is the projector.
Take the filter out and vaccum it, take the lamp out and use compressed air to clean the dust away.
Be carefull witt the air thoug! keep it a bit away from the projector when u cleand the dust away, to close and you can make big mamages inside it.
And, remeber to keep the filter as cleas as possible, i clean min every 2,5-3 monthes.

Good luck

No captions sanyo projection tv


By captions you mean subtitles - this constraint is a feature of your TV and not the projector, If however you mean the menu text for the projector then you sometimes have to select s-vid or composite as the menu text (and the volume level) doesn't appear when you are using Component.

OVAL SPOT IN PICTURE


LCD 101, your blue device is dying in the projector. Very common problem. The blue device cant handle the heat and allowing the other colors to come thru. I suggest replacing with a dlp brand product.

Sanyo plv z4 shuts down


call sanyo tech department and they will help you increase the fan speed to cool the unit. This is done with the remote so it was pretty easy. Make sure your filters are very clean first (use compressed air or a co2 canister. Have not had a problem since, my units run on average 8 hours a night and have not shut down.
