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.

Indicator showing LAMP. Does this indicate the lamp needs replacing?

Yes. The lamp is timed and the replacement indicator signals when the lamp is near end of life. If the lamp fails catastrophically it makes a mess... best to replace before that happens.

Projector shuts off within 30 seconds of power on

is the led lit on the top of the projector? what colors?

green is ok.

red flashing in sequence:
2 times- lamp hours exceed 200 hrs. replace lamp.
3 times- lamp failure. replace lamp.
4 times- fans not working. remove obstruction or replace fan.
5 times- temp too high. clean thoroughly.
solid red- undiagnosed error by projector. possible power supply or ballast.

also make sure the lamp door switch is working.

Projectors keeps shutting down after 20 - 30 seconds

reason for fan spinning at high speed after shutdown is to cool down the projector after it has been on
you will feel hot air from exhaust as this is taking the heat away from the lamp, where all the heat is generated
if it shuts down after 20 mins either the projector is blocked, maybe, a fan is not running, filter blocked, or the motherboard is now u/s

Replace lamp warning light goes on after raplacing it with the new lamp

I had the same problem. There is an internal reset button just above the lamp that needs to be reset. You have to take the cover off, which would void your warrantee, but it's quite easy. My lamp only had 660 hrs, and I bought a new one too. So now I have an extra. My guess is that my filter was getting clogged causing an overheating situation and tripping this reset button which I'm guessing is a heat sensor.

How old is it ? Approx how many hrs have you used it? Was it set at Lo speed / low power or hi speed / max power on bulb and fan? Do you smoke in the same room? Is the unit ceiling mounted ( more concentrated hot air ). Have you had a power failure while the unit was on? The bulbs used in many projectors , although claiming 3000 or more Hrs ,are subject to early failure. If the unit or bulb is new ( less than 1 yr. old, contact the service manager at that co. and complain about short life; IThat works !

EP 757 Intermittent powering down

Pls check if the lamp is not so old that is giving the same problem. If lamp is almost new, then you can have a check with the Ballast unit card and then the loose connection in the Power supply or may be overheating and tripping.
