It's in the menu somewhere but it's a pain to find when you have image inverted! It's one of the last menus and I seem to remember but as mine is knackered at the moment I can't turn it on and tell you exactly where sorry. I seem to remember it being in the menu relating to whether the projector is ceiling mounted or not if that helps

We have a Sanyo PLV-55whd1.

You have to pull the chassis out and it sits on top. Also there are 2 squirrel cage fans that cool the bulb, be sure to blow these out, especially the supply fan, its gets caked up really bad and then there no air to the bulb which makes the thermal switch trip. Theres also two other computer type fans a larger on which is out in the open on the right side and a smaller on on the left as viewed from the rear of the TV. The small one is burried, you will need to pull the tuner to get a good crack at it.

I cannot get my remote to work with my Sanyo

I would first try changing the batteries in the remote and verifying that batteries are in the right direction (+ and - terminals line up).

Once that is done, try pointing the remote right at the infrared sensor at the front of the projector...the black plastic circle on the front of the projector.

My projector only plays black and white when

Depending on the connection type it's either the cable isn't properly inserted at one end or the other or it's expecting rgb and it's geting a composite feed.

Replaced bulb, shuts off after about 15 to 30

from experience that when a projector shuts down that quick, a fan was the culprit. If you had a lamp exploded recently, there is a chance a piece of glass get stuck in a fan.

When u switch it on a timer comes on for 30 seconds then the projector turns off

Had the exact same problem, after my projector was powered off upruptly.
Turnedout all I had to do was push down slightly on the tempreturesensor/fuse (is opens the power circut if the projector gets too hot,and thus doesnt allow any current)
Here is the full repair/service schematic for the projector. It should help you locate the sensor.
Good luck

How do I change the light bulb in the Sanyo pro

This is called "keystone adjustment". If you still have the owner's manual, it will describe how to do it. If you don't have the book, look on the button console on the projector, or on the remote for an icon that looks like a rectangle that is either narrow at the top or narrow at the bottom and press it. That will get you in the control. If there's no button, you will probably find it on the set up menu. It's pretty easy to do the adjustment, one way makes the image narrower at the top, the other makes it narrower at the bottom. Some older projectors just have a **** on the unit that changes the angle of one of the mirrors inside to accomplish the same thing. The reason for this adjustment is to compensate for the distortion of the image caused by a projector mounted near the ceiling and pointing down at the screen, or sitting near the floor and point up at the screen.

Adapt projectors can do that, they are little nice jewels that can play multimedia files from USB stick or cameras with good professional quality.

You can find it at retail price of about $300.

Here the projector: Aiptek PJV11X PocketCinema V10 Portable

HI there

Check that your power cable is ok. Best way is by trying a differnt cable. If the problem still shows , you might have to open it up check if the fuse on the powersupply board is ok and then worst case cenario have the powersupply replaced.

Hope this is of help !
