Sanyo XU50 not coming on after lamp replacement

I replaced the bulb in my Sanyo XU50 projector and cleaned the filters. Now when I switch it on using the mains power, the power light goes red, when I press the power button the light goes to green and the fan starts up, then the amber lamp replacement light comes on and the power light then flashes red. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be gratefully appreciated.

Sanyo PLC XU50 Projector turns on and works for a few seconds then the fan comes on at a higher speed and the projector goes to stand by. Any ideas?


The cooling channel is likely clogged by lint and dust. We usually suggest annual cleaning and maintenance to avoid these kinds of issues. It is also possible that the fans have failed.

I have a Sanyo PLC-EX20 projector which shuts down after five minutes, what could cause this?


There are 2 possible causes.

The first may be due to overheating. Most projectors have a "air filter" that can be removed and cleaned. If it gets clogged with dust over time, the projector can't breathe and shuts down.

The second cause may be your lamps life hour clock. Most projectors keep track of the amount of time that their bulbs have been active. Once a preset # of hours has passed the projector will limit functionality until a new bulb has been installed AND the lamp life clock reset. Most projectors do not automatically reset the lamp life clock after a new bulb is inserted.

There should be instructions on how to reset the lamp clock in your users manual, and info on cleaning the air filter. Unfortunately I went to the Sanyo website and was unsuccessful in locating a PDF of the user manual for you.

Sanyo PLC - Z5 Lamp Replacement Light


Just had the same problem. Based on other suggestions on here I tried resetting the overheat switch, and IT WORKED!

So, you have to pull the 6 screws (one of them is shorter than the rest, remember where it goes) that hold the top on the projector. 3 are on the back, 3 on the bottom - look for the arrows next to the screws.

Put the projector on it's feet, and pull off the top. The button wires will still be connected, so just hold onto the top and find the black circle/shaft above where the lamp is. The shaft has white paint on the top/tip of it. Push it down with a light amount of force. You should hear/feel it click.

Put top back on, put screws in, and you should be good to go.

Don't forget to reset the lamp replacement counter in the menus.

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

Hi there

If you have the know how open up the machine and replace the fuse on the Powersupply board ( where the AC socket sits in )

If this still occurs , I'm afraid you will have to replace the Powersupply board.

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

Warning lamp glow


Hi

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.
