Question about Sanyo PLC-XP57 LCD Projector

1 Answer

The projector is approximately 4 years old & on average runs for about 60 hours per week, 40 weeks of the year. After fitting a new lamp last October & resetting the projector, the image is still poor. The image top & bottom is OK but deteriorates towards the centre. Is the unit reppairable or should I purchase a new model

Additional information is required for us to assist. Can you better describe what you mean by "poor image"? Are the colors separated? Is the picture out of focus? Are the colors wrong?

Please describe the picture or post a picture of the screen if you can.

Thanks,
Dan

It is just very dim. The bulb has 500 hours - is it just a bulb?


Hi,
This projector had a lamp rated at 2000 hours (normal) / 3000 hours (eco mode). It last shipped in August 2008. It is a 3000 lumen projector. It's a reasonable business class projector.
As a first step, it's certainly worth checking your warranty status. Your projector will certainly be approaching the end of its warranty now, however this model was shipped with a 3 year warranty so it may still be covered if the fault is not the lamp. Check now, and log the (possible) fault with your local Hitachi service dept. eg http://hitachiserviceeu.com/support/contacts/contacts.htm
Essentially it is hard to say. You might find that replacing the lamp makes the projector considerably brighter. A new lamp in an old projector does not return the image to a showroom state though due to degradation in the LCD panels, and dirt etc.

If the projector is not displaying any sign of other fault (ie. it will run happily for a decent length of time, and there are no warning LEDs) it might be worth considering replacing the lamp. A new lamp will cost cost around £250 or $250. If you are going to replace the lamp before sending it for "repair" make sure you fit a genuine Hitachi lamp as non genuine lamps can lead to warranty problems.

I've got the same problem. Just replaced the bulb but the image is no brighter. Our unit is two years old and operates about 6 hours a day. It is dimmer and more out of focus when run from a Windows computer.

5 years old, lamps are good for about 50 000 to 60 000 hours of life you would have to do the math based on average number of hours per week/month and see where your are, several things to check initially are inside look for blown capacitors, you can find images all over the net Google "blown capacitor image" and you will see what to look for.
Next could be inverter failure as they get old and work pretty hard. Last the ccfl lamps may be dieing of old age like the florescent lamps in buildings, they get burnt at each of the ends and have a hard time lighting up.
let me know what you find.

Optoma HD65 bulb only 108 hrs old having difficulty starting up


Use the warranty! since you anly had it for 8 weeks, and the waaranty last for one year, go back with it and get it repaired or get a new bulb. A buld last at least 2500 hours, in eco mode it last for over 3000 hours.

Good luck to you

Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.

Life of a bulb


Hello,

I too have an early P1 series Livingstation with a bulb that MAY be going out. I've been searching online and found several suppliers with prices ranging from $249 to $367. the Epson store seems to be the cheapest and probably most reliable supplier at $249 including shipping! http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/ProductQuickSpec.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=40809413&category=

The stated life of the bulb is 10,000 hours ... and I've had my LSP1 for perhaps 4 years. We use it kind of heavily - and I'd say we've used it roughly 30-40 hours a week... and over 4 years I'd say that equates to 200 weeks at 30-40 hours = 6000-8000 hours of use already. So, once I replace the current lamp - if the replacement works well... then I'll immediately buy a spare bulb. That will enable effective use for another 20,000 hours with the new replacement and spare. That hould last me about 9-11 more years for only $500 or so.... assuming I get 4.5-5.5 years of use per bulb.
