Question about Sanyo PLV-Z3 Multimedia Projector

Sanyo Z3 "Predator effect" problem

When hdmi upconverting to 720p (with Oppo 981 player) approx 1 hour or so into a movie, the picture will suddenly change to a distorted multi-colored image much like the alien's p.o.v. vision in the movie Predator. The projector is locked up, remote will not function, and must be shut down manually with the power switch on the unit. This does not occur at 480p. After powering back up the image is fine...until it happens again. It is possible that this occurs at the discs layer change, however I can't verify this. Web searches show this to be quite common among Sanyo Z3 owners.

    How do I hook up digital cable to my projector? Do I need a VCR of DVD player? I tried to hook up cable to a dvd and didn't get a connection. Signed clueless

    My Z3 does the same thing - not every time but regularly enough to be annoying. I have found any other solution than what you mention. My latest problem is a blue stain that has appeared on the right side of the image - I'm guessing the lcd panel is going. While I have enjoyed going to a projector not so sure I will buy another Sanyo.

I just hooked up my Memorex MVBD2535 Blu-ray player to my Sanyo DP50740 plasma bia an HDMI cable. The picture flashes on and off, and sometimes the screen says "no signal". I know the Sanyo...


I had this exact same problem after setting this model DVD player up. I put in a disc thinking I would listen to the movie while working on some other projects and would call tech support in the AM.

Putting in the disc fixed the problem. If there is a disc in the system, I do not have this issue. If thee is not, it does the same thing while it is on.

DVI-HDMI not working with Sanyo Z2


HD comes as 720p and 1080p - the Sanyo will cope with 720 but not 1080 full HD - check the specs in the manual. You should have a DVD output setting for screen mode.

Mitsubishi 55 in. 1080 series


If I remember correctly, this TV has a couple of constraints that will cramp your style:

1. It supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. NO 720P
2. It has component video inputs, but NO HDMI. (as you stated)

There is no easy solution here, because I've never found an upconverting DVD player that would upconvert anything past 480p using the analog component outputs...

So..

Perhaps you can find an Upconverting BLU-RAY disk player that may allow older DVDs to be upconverted to 1080i via the component outputs.

MOST Blu-Ray players allow 1080i output via the analog connections on Blu-Ray discs, so perhaps there is your solution.

No 5.1 surround when adding a Philips upconvert player to the San


Sounds like you are getting analog signals from your componet cables and a true digital input from your HDMI into your tv.

However that unit is Analog audio input x 1 only.
So i dont think your going to get true digital surround sound.
The problem being

Sanyo =

Inputs: Analog Audio x 1 Outputs: Composite x 1 · S-Video x 1 · Component x 1 · Digital Audio Coaxial x

I have a 720p HDTV. If I buy a BluRay DVD player with is see a significient difference in my movie picture quality. Im using an Upconvert player now.


I've never seen an upconverting DVD player that could match the image quality of a high-definition disc player, particularly when you're outputting to a larger TV. The basic issue is that the maximum resolution of DVD is 720x480 while Blu-ray is 1,920x1,080. The Blu-ray image is much larger and made up of more information than the DVD image.

You didn't mention the size of your TV, but anything over 32" and high-quality picture is important to you....go BluRay. Not to mention that BluRay are relatively inexpensive now.

Component Cable


Are you just using the yellow cable at this point, because the quality would in fact be awful? Using the green, red & blue cables (component cables) would not improve quality much, seeing as the yellow video cable has a resolution of 480i and component cables are set at 480p. Your TV (if it is in fact high definition) would either run at 720p or 1080p depending on what the manual says and what the native resolution is. I would say try and buy and upconvert DVD player and make sure to get an HDMI cable to go from the DVD player to the HDTV (some DVD players come with this cable, but you'll have to look around for them, otherwise look on buy.com or something for some cheap ones). HDMI connection and the upconvert DVD player will improve picture quality significantly.

DVD Upconverters???


Greetings jhays82,

Some DVD players can upconvert DVD signals to resolutions that match those of HDTVs, and send them to a compatible TV via a digital video connection. HDMI (High-Definition Media Interface) and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) both offer high-quality digital transmission of standard- and high-definition video signals. HDMI can also carry multichannel audio, and is backwards compatible with DVI (video only). So in other words, to receive the full benefit from an upconvert, you would want to hook it up with HDMI or DVI.

Thank You,

Agent Dort,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.

Maximizing screen resolution/settings for movies? I have had this since new


Hi there

There is no way you could push it any further than 480p

If you would however like a better picture you can add a scaler like the DVDO Iscan VP30 to the mix and be blown out of your shoes with colour and smoothness of image.
