I had this happen too. Occasionally, you will press the power button, but it won't shut down, everything else seems to work. I was forced to unplug it a few times which is a bad deal. I finally traced it to some kind of strange power loop from my DVD player. If you have multiple sources, I'd try it for a while without them (one at a time) and see if you can isolate it, or better yet, if you have a way to swap them all out temporarily and add them back 1 at a time, you may be able to isolate it. It didn't seem to help to unplug or disconnect the DVD player before powering off the projector. It had to have never been connected. Took me quite a while to figure it out. It's pretty obscure, hope it helps.

What is the lamp life on a sanyo plv-z2 bulb and how to read the bulb life there are 3 numbers that come up when i check it

If I remember correctly, you hold down either the power or the menu button for 30 seconds... I believe it is the power button, and it will briefly display it on the screen, but this assumes it was reset at the time the lamp was installed. The counter counts up on this model, and the lamp replace light will come on at 3000 hours. I have 2 of these units, and I have gotten at least 5000 hours out of each lamp. Toward the end of the lamp life, it may start getting dim and/or have difficulty starting, but I probably wouldn't replace it until you either notice the dimming or the lamp fails, although I've heard some say they can damage the projector when they fail, I have not had any problems.

PLV-Z2 Won't come on.

Hi There,
Yup you definatly have a temp sensor issue. But dont worry, Its not a major issue. Ive had a plv-z3, and a plc-sw35,And both projectors gave me a temp sensor issue at one time or another. Its just a sanyo thing...
Heres what happend.. The ambient temp inside the projector shouldnt reach more than 100 degrees celcius, when it does the temp sensor (which looks like a small black pot, with a shaft, and a ceramic white tip) Opens up, and cuts off the high voltage supply to the projector, A fail safe to prevent any major damage. What essentially should happen is, that once the projector has cooled, the temp sensor should return to normal possition, and allow normal operation... BUT... sometimes it doesnt. And until you manually push the shft back down, You projector wont work again.
What you need to do, Is take off the top cover, Locate the sensor (its normally mounted next to, or on the lamp housing) And push on the white tip with a pen or small screwdriver to close the circut again.
Here it a full service manual for a plv-z3, which is almost identical to your unit.

Hope Ive helped in some way. :)
good luck

Starts up but turns onto standby straight away

There could be a problem with the flip down iris protector. If the Sanyo is on and you flip the protector down manually then the projector will go into standby mode. This is obviously to protect the system incase it ever gets flipped down accidently and the system is on. There could be a faulty switcher inside the protector mechanism which is not working properly and the machine thinks that the screen is down when in fact it is open!

Switch off the entire projector at the mains and open and close the screen a few time manually. If you feel comfortable doing so try and force the screen up a little bit past its stopping point when it is supposed to be fully open. Be careful and don't break it. Now keeping it open plug it back in a see if that works and don't touch the protector ever again! If it doesn't try opening and closing a few more times to try and release the triggering button that is inside the projector screen.

I had the same problem and that worked for me.
