Once the filter is replaced, plug the projector back in and make sure the projector is in standby mode.  Point the remote control at the projector and press the following buttons in order in less than 3 seconds: reset, ←, →, enter.  This worked for me.  Good luck.

I have a sanyo PLC-XE40 model projector. the problem is when i power it on everything works fine ,but after like 30 mins it shuts down automatically as if i have powered it off by my self. it shuts down...


There is a lens/lamp filter which must be taken out and cleaned, use good air jet to blow and brush out dirt. If the filter is clogged then the lamp might heat up and so shut down..
if the fault does not clean try and force cool the unit, if not there is fault in the power supply, possible lamp problem or circuit error on load or heat.
You will need to open and use a test bench to check out the sections, one by one, use of multimeter and good equipments may be needed . If not take help with consensus.

When i first turn it on the message (projector over heated will automatically shut off lamp) comes up and then shuts off after 2 mins


You have an overheating problem.To solve it

1) Ensure that there are clear air pathways around the projector

2) Clean the air filters.

3) Ensure that the fans are running. If the fans don't run the projector won't fire it.

It is likely that cleaning the filters will solve your porblem.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).

Light hours getting close to 3000, but picture still looks good,will resetting lamp hour hurt and keep using same lamp be ok. thanks david


No do not reset the lamp hrs. because the lamp might reach the ed of life and could blow resulting in mercury poisoning. If you notice there is a warning sign that pops up in red or something saying to change the lamp, it will shut down eventually during that warning time. You have gotten a lot of hours with that lamp and consider being fortunate to have such reliability. Buy a new lamp when needed as it will improve your experience.
