Re: Sanyo Projector PLC-XU50 Lamp Hours

Turn projector on and before doing anything else, press and hold the UP arrow on the machine for 30-40 seconds WHILE watching the display screen on the wall - the remaining hours will display only momentarily - if you look away you could miss it. Cheers

Sanyo plc-xt16 Projector After the projector is turned on and the countdown finishes on initial start up the projector shuts itself off within 5 seconds. The fan runs for 1 minute and then the projector...

It sounds like the lamp is going.
Do you know how many hours of use are reported on the lamp?

Many times these projectors have circuitry to shutdown when they suspect the lamp is near the end of life. Lamp hours vary and usually will go up to and even beyond expectancy, but there is occasions you can receive a bad lamp and have it blow in a matter of hours...not common but it does occur.

I hope this helps,

Is there any way to check the bulb life on a Sanyo PLC-XU30 projector? I know some projectors have an option on the menu screen which lets you know how long the bulb has left. Its just that i bought it off...

on my XU 55 the trick to read the lamp hours is to press and hold down the power button in about 20 seconds when the projector is turned on. there will come a window in the upper left corner that tells about total hours and lamp hours. the window will disappear quite fast, so one might need to do it twice.

It may be that the lamp actually does need replacing so that may be why it's not coming on?

How to check lamp hours on xf-45 or xf-35?

On the XF-45, you push the "UP" button and then the "Menu" button and hold both of them for approximately 20 seconds. After that you will see a bunch of numbers in the top left hand corner of the screen. Using the Left and Right arrow keys, move the "Group" number until it reads 111. Then using the Up and Down arrow keys to scroll through each lamp (0-3).

If you move the "Group" number to 110, you can see total number of hours that socket has run.

Warning lamp glow


Does your projector still work?

The warning lamp is there to let you know there is a problem, usually overheating! Make sure it is well ventilated and that the filters have been cleaned.

Try disconnecting the AC power cord and then reconnect it to check if it is still happening.
