20 Most Recent Sanyo PLC-SW30 Multimedia Projector Questions & Answers

You need to turn off the ceiling mode to get the picture to project correctly. This is in the Settings Menu. See page 37 of the manual which is currently available here: http://cncms.com.au/SANYO-IMs/Commercial-Industrial/plcsw30_im.pdf . Press Menu. Then use the left/right arrows to move to the icon with the projector and screen shown. (Note: right now this row will be on the bottom of your screen and the icon will be to the left side of the row.) Press the down arrow and move to the Ceiling icon with the R. It should be the seventh icon from the upside down "Up" arrow; it's next to the Capture icon with a camera. (Normally, ceiling icon shows as an upside down R when your image is projected right-side up. There is also a rear-projector icon with a mirror image R when the image is right-side up.) Press Select and then use the arrow keys to choose the On/Off options. You may need to press Select again to save the setting. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

The filters are starting to show their age. This is a normal occurance for projectors and is the result of heat. The filters and/or the mirrors might need to be changed.

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.

You have a classic temp sensor problem. Its a fail safe on theprojector, basically a fuse that bridges the main power cables. Lookslike a little pot, With a white ceramic head.
Now what it does, Is the white ceramic head rises as the unit getshotter, and thus breaks the power circut. All you need to do is, openup the unit, locate the sensor (its mounted next to the lamp on yourprojector) And push the little white head back down, thus closing thecircut, and restoring power supply.
Here is the full repair schematic to guide you. :)

If the lamp doesn't strike then change the 680uF capacitor on the bottom corner of the power supply board.

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.

The first check is to make sure that it does accept other VGA signals into the 15pin D connector use 800X600 resolution, if signals are present then it is because you need to configure the output reference on your laptop.This is by using the F keys etc this switches the VGA XGA signals from your laptop screen and reference's it out to the connector.Kind regards J Williams www.jvsvisual.com
