Question about Sanyo PLV 70 Multimedia Projector

Sanyo Projector We just replaced our light bulb. The filters are clean yet without warning the cooling fan will get pretty loud and run hard for a couple of minutes then stop, then randomly it does it again. Any suggestions, we love our projector!

    What is easy to spot? I can see the fan through the back vent, is there more than one fan I need to investigate by removing the case? Are you suggesting I might need to replace the fan? Sorry your post was a bit confusing.

Hi there

First make sure that your lamp timer & filter timer ( if available ) is reset.

If the problem still occurs , take a flashlight and check if your fans is running a normal rate when the unit is switched on.

It's easy to spot. If you can't spot it with the eye - take a thin piece of paper and touch the fans slighly - you'll hear the difference immediately - in wich case it woul need replacement

    Hi there

    Sorry for the confusion. What meant is that it is quite easy to spot the fans and whether they are running or not.

    Yes there is about 3 fans in the Projector and will have to take of the top cover to see them all.

    I hope this will help you.

PLV-Z2000 Projector Your question about PLV-Z2000

what about the Projector Condition leds: POWER, WARNING and LAMP REPLACE? How are they lit? For good measure you should also clean the air filter (the projector might not be getting enough air to cool the lamp)

When I turn on the power light comes on , then the warning light comes on and the projector fails to start

I would start off by making sure that the fans and filters are cleaned. The easiest way to do this is with a can of compressed air that you can buy at any office supply store. If that does not solve your issue, than it would sound as if your bulb is burnt out.

Power indicator /red/ and warning led/red/ are lighting after ea 15 sec. a lamp never start and fans goes in OFF mode. I checked power supply lines S5V,S-5V,S16V on the Main Board . I checked unit lamp...

If power indicator light red and warning indicator red flashing than according to user manual :-
The projector has been cooled down enough and the temperature returns to normal. When turning ON the projector the WARNING indicator stops flashing. CHECK AND CLEAN THE AIR FILTER.
Experience:- 1. if the temperature is very low than temperature sensor maybe misbehave.
2. If anyone fan not working
so please you check fans.
(If lamp or lamp ballast unit faulty than after a time period the lamp indicator light ON not a warning indicator. I experience many times if any fan in projector are broken or jamed the temperature light if present otherwise warning light ON or flashing)

Everything seems normal but the lamp will not

check lamp door and filters (if you have them). if they are not closed or in all the way, the lamp will not go on. otherwise, the ballast may be bad and needs replacing.

The projector keeps shutting off during use. What may be the problem?

I make sure the air filter stay cleaned and no vents are blocked I have had my projector 2 years. I had to send it in last year. And, it went out again today. I hate this projector and would never buy another one. My other projectors lasted 4 years before I had to even change the bulb. I use it everyday all day. They didn't tell me if it was the bulb or the fan. But again today it just quit while I was using it.

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.
