Question about Sanyo PLC XF45 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Lumens decreased in my Sanyo PLC-XF45

I am experiencing a noticeable decrease in lumens in my projector. Took off outer shell and noticed some dust build-up on the internal lenses and mirrors. Are there any other common causes for this, and is there a step-by-step for taking them out and cleaning them?

You can open up the mirrors one by one and clear the dust. If this is difficult then just tkae a hand air blow pump and clear them manually.

My friend, i'm sorry and i hope your sitting down. The person who made the decision to change out the products was not educated about projection enough to make this decision. Let me explain. Your previous projector was 3000 lumens, and had better contrast, but had a lower resolution. The replacement projector was 1500 lumens and poor contrast, but higher resolution. You have basically halfed, your output brightness. The decision maker went the wrong way for this product selection. Brighter is better in the education enviorment.

The good news is lcd projectors only last about 4000 operational hours so you can replace them with a dlp product that will last 8-10 years. good luck

Good luck
