Re: sanyo plv z4 shuts down

Call sanyo tech department and they will help you increase the fan speed to cool the unit. This is done with the remote so it was pretty easy. Make sure your filters are very clean first (use compressed air or a co2 canister. Have not had a problem since, my units run on average 8 hours a night and have not shut down.

My Sanyo PLV-Z4 has had a replacement bulb (twice in case it was a bulb malfunction) but still flashes amber to replace the bulb and closes down immediately. How can I reset the bulb timer if it won't even...

Remove the screws that have the -> symbol, carefully remove the top cover, then at the bottom right side, if your lense is pointing away from you, is a little switch, that you push down, its circular.
Push that down, and then put everything back, and it should power up

Sanyo plv z4

look in the projector menu ( should not be backwards) and switch the view to front projection. It might be set in rear projection. That is what my viewsonic PJ-558 projector can do sometimes
