This is normally a clear indication that the lamp is in need of replacement.

Take out the lamp and check for any damage like discolouration or bubbles just to make sure before you invest in a new lamp.

PLV-Z2 Won't come on.

Hi There,
Yup you definatly have a temp sensor issue. But dont worry, Its not a major issue. Ive had a plv-z3, and a plc-sw35,And both projectors gave me a temp sensor issue at one time or another. Its just a sanyo thing...
Heres what happend.. The ambient temp inside the projector shouldnt reach more than 100 degrees celcius, when it does the temp sensor (which looks like a small black pot, with a shaft, and a ceramic white tip) Opens up, and cuts off the high voltage supply to the projector, A fail safe to prevent any major damage. What essentially should happen is, that once the projector has cooled, the temp sensor should return to normal possition, and allow normal operation... BUT... sometimes it doesnt. And until you manually push the shft back down, You projector wont work again.
What you need to do, Is take off the top cover, Locate the sensor (its normally mounted next to, or on the lamp housing) And push on the white tip with a pen or small screwdriver to close the circut again.
Here it a full service manual for a plv-z3, which is almost identical to your unit.

Hope Ive helped in some way. :)
good luck

SANYO PLV-70 - powers up for approx 5 secounds and then turns of

we had this problem and it ended up being that one of the fans under the lens assembly was not working, causing the system to shut down when it tested it at startup

PLV-Z1 no longer powering up - Ready light is green and the Lamp light is red

I have a Sanyo XU35. Mine was starting up and showed a picture for about 15 - 30 seconds then shutting down. My lamp warning light was not coming on. When I put it in for repairs it turned out to be the lamp that needed replacing. The technician said it is not uncomman for the lamp to be gone and the lamp warning light not to come on. I got my lamp on e-bay from ping_ngo for a great price.
