We tracked it when we first bought ours. The lamps go anywhere from 800 to 1200 hours. First, I don't think the manufacturing process is very consistent so they very a lot. Also, it seems the more you turn them on/off the shorter the life. If you use for longer periods, then they last more hours.

You might be able to get 2000 hours out of one if you just leave it on without turning it off but that is a waste too.

Turns on and calls for replace lamp, I already did it and still calling for replace lamp. Fan turns on and that's it power and lamp lights are on thanks


Projectors keep a lamp life clock to track the age of a bulb. The clock needs to be reset with each bulb that is inserted. Here are the steps with your particular projector:

1)Power on projector
2) Go to "menu"
3) Choose "Options"
4) Choose "Lamp Settings"
5) Choose "Lamp Reset"
6) Select Yes

Certain models require you to hold "Lamp Reset" for a particular amount of time. It could be instantly, 3 seconds, 5 seconds, 10 seconds... Just have to play until it responds.

Once that is reset you should be good.

The image is very dim, even on maximum brightness. We are considering replacing the bulb, but bulbs for this projector are very expensive and we suspect that since there is some image, the bulb is not the...


Yes, as bulbs age they will begin losing brightness. Most projectors have a bulb life hour clock, that measures the number of hours a bulb has been used. Usually you can pull that up within the menu of the projector. Also that particular model has what is called "Eco-Mode" and when engaged dims the bulb by 25% to cut down on power consumption.

Typical life for a lamp in that projector is:

3000 hours on Normal mode
6000 hours on Eco mode

You can expect a brightness loss of 50% when you are approaching end of a lamps life.

Lamp comes on briefly and then goes out


Check poewer connection
Check if fan filder is dirty ( if it is just hoover it out)
If "lamp" light on top of the projector blinks or stays lit - lamp probably faulty
How old is the Projector/lamp (average lamp life is around 2000-3000 hours)

Our projector indicates that the light bulb needs to be replaced after replacing the light bulb once it still indicates that it needs to be replaced.


This is the excerpt from the manual on how to reset the lamp life timer.

Turn on the projector and use "Lamp Reset" after the lamp module is replaced.
Lamp Reset: (i) Press "Menu" ?§ (ii) Select "Options" ?§ (iii) Select "Lamp settings" ?§ (iv) Select "Lamp Reset ?§ (v) Select "Yes".

HD20 switches on by itself


Hello,

the projector will shut off when the lamp hour count reaches expected lamp life. It will restart only long enough to read the hour meter again then shut it's self off again. You can manually reset the hour meter to continue using the same lamp. Good luck.......

How do I find the remaining bulb life for the Sanyo PLC SE-20


There is not a set time for bulb life. The projector will have a timer built in to tell you how many hours it's been running. I've had projectors that I've reset the warning twice before I've noticed any performance issues with the bulb. That particular bulb has a life of approx 2000 hrs, so go through the menu on your projector and find the "lamp timer" or something similar to that and do some simple math. :)

reset the lamp timer. if you don't hear a high-pitched whir when you turn it on, the colorwheel is bad. could also be the ballast. worst case, the main board. if it is under warranty, send it in.

OK, found the solution on the net, you have to use the buttons on the projector instead of the remote to access the menu item.
