Sanyo PLC-XF46N projector shuts down before powering up completely

My Sanyo PLC-XF46N won't turn on completely before shutting down & flashing "warning temp" light; it can't be too hot - the lamps aren't getting bright enough to even see the "Sanyo" & signal countdown display. I'd try to cut back the lamps on power up, but can't even get to see the menu. Help!

The Fix Ya rep suggested that I try the "Reset" button located next to the Audio out on the side of the projector; this solution proved to be the fix I needed. I was able to get the lamps to warm up and get into the menu to cut back the bulbs/power consumption on start-up, allowing the projector to function for a problem-free 4 hour period Unfortunately, I had the same issue this morning, but the same fix worked again.

Sanyo plc xp100 - all indicator lights are flashing when turned on

I have only experienced all the indicators flashing after 3mins of powering up and then suddenly shutting down. I have not yet experienced the indicators flashing straight after turning on.

I think the problem for me was that the filter wasn't seated firmly enough in the filter compartment. I was able to stop the indicators flashing by turning off the power at the power point, removing and reinstalling the filter, making sure that it fit firmly and tightly in the compartment. Then I turn the power back on. I believe that sometimes if the filter isn't set in the compartment tightly enough the projector will think that no filter has been installed and will automatically shut down after 3 mins.

You also need to make sure that the filter has not run out of scroll. to test this, push down the small, white spool on the left whilst pushing down and turning the large geared spool on the right anticlockwise. If the filter continues to scroll you can still use it. If not, the filter has reached the end of the spool needs to be replaced.

Sanyo plc-sw30 i have a problem when i power on the projector , there is no power lamp on a very slow light is visible and the projector shut down and the fan are in very high power

The uProcessor thinks that it has overheated and is frantically trying to cool down what it thinks is a hot lamp.
This condition has many causes from an exhausted lamp to lamp ballast fault or even a power supply fault or a heat sensor/fan fault.

Sanyo plc-xt16 Projector After the projector is turned on and the countdown finishes on initial start up the projector shuts itself off within 5 seconds. The fan runs for 1 minute and then the projector...

It sounds like the lamp is going.
Do you know how many hours of use are reported on the lamp?

Many times these projectors have circuitry to shutdown when they suspect the lamp is near the end of life. Lamp hours vary and usually will go up to and even beyond expectancy, but there is occasions you can receive a bad lamp and have it blow in a matter of hours...not common but it does occur.

I hope this helps,

I have a model PLC-XT11 and when I turn the power on the temp light and green ready light begin to flash. The red lamp light is on steady. I replace the lamp but no luck.

one or more of the fans may not be working right. also, the temp sensor may be shot. if the last time you used it it wasn't shut down properly, it may still be in cool-down mode.
