SOURCE: is this blue tinge on the left side of the screen

Your problem is the optical block failing. This is very common with the AE700s. It actually happened to me once before and I had it fixed. After having it replaced, it was recommended I run my fan on high mode, run the lamp on low mode and change the back lit color to black from blue to help thwart the issue. The optical block fails due to heat stress from the projector. Doing the things above lower the heat and extend the life of the block. I have a perfeclty good optical block if you would be interested as buying them new are extrememly expensive.

SOURCE: red lamp or heat light is flashing while projector

Here is some information on this model which I hope will help...
The lamp indicator lights when the lamp is due to be replaced. It will flash if a circuit abnormality is found.
The temp indicator lights if an abnormal temperature is detected. If it goes too high it will shut down flash.
The lamp indicator is furthest away from the power switch if that helps.
If the lamp timer was approaching the end of the lamp life you would see a REPLACE LAMP nag screen when the projector is turned on. The fact that you have not mentioned this suggests that this is unlikely to be the problem.
The filters on the model are on the underside. There is a removable panel directly under the lens. You should not use canned air as you are blowing dust into the projector. It is recommended that you use a vacuum cleaner. Filters should be cleaned every 100 hours and replaced when the projector is relamped. You can wash the filter by hand with water only, ensuring it is dry before replacing it. Do not run the projector without the filter in place.

I have a Sanyo PLC-EX20 projector which shuts down after five minutes, what could cause this?

There are 2 possible causes.

The first may be due to overheating. Most projectors have a "air filter" that can be removed and cleaned. If it gets clogged with dust over time, the projector can't breathe and shuts down.

The second cause may be your lamps life hour clock. Most projectors keep track of the amount of time that their bulbs have been active. Once a preset # of hours has passed the projector will limit functionality until a new bulb has been installed AND the lamp life clock reset. Most projectors do not automatically reset the lamp life clock after a new bulb is inserted.

There should be instructions on how to reset the lamp clock in your users manual, and info on cleaning the air filter. Unfortunately I went to the Sanyo website and was unsuccessful in locating a PDF of the user manual for you.

Panasonic PT-60LCX64. What would happen if you

you won't get another warning for 2000 more hours on a lamp that is good for only 2000 hours (give or take). so, if you don't replace it, you run the risk of the lamp exploding at the end of it's life, sending shards of glass and mercury dust throughout the projector.
