I have 3 Cinego projectors and none of them work now only after about 5 months use. You will never find a solution for this issue. Cinego is a terrible product and should be blown up!!! I'm very pissed off that no one can resolve this issue that everyone seems to have.

I have a similar problem. JVC Project (DLA-RS1) shuts off after about 30 min to 1 hour of use. Everything turns off - bulb, fan, even the little light on the projector near the buttons. After 10-15 min the red light comes back on and you can start the projector.
I have seen this happen when I had installed a knock-off bulb. I believe the bulb runs a little hotter and the projector over heats. Now I am seeing it happen even with a JVC bulb.
I am in the process of taking the cover off the projector to see if anything is blocking the air flow (like a piece of broken bulb, which did break a while back). If a problem doesn't show up there I am going to check the fan to see if it is turning at full speed (maybe replace with a beefier fan?).
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.
I have exact same problem. According to the manual its time to replace the bulb. But when I check the runtime on the bulb it shows 326 H. I am not certain if this is the remaing hours on the bulb or the usage to date hours.
I would appreciate anyone commenting and recommending a solution.
Go to the OSD menu and select the configuration menu scroll down and select the auto power off selection( in most cases it is preset to power off after ten minutes of inactivity) turn the auto power selection off and there you go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a projector at our church that was hooked up to a light switch to turn it on or off and it kept burning the bulbs out. We had an expert come in and look over our situation and he said When you are finished with the projector let the fan keep blowing until the unit cools down. Ours had a switch for the bulb as well as one for the fan. We turned out the bulb and left the fan on for an extra ten to fifteen minutes. That let the bulb cool down gradually If you just cut the power the bulb over heats and will burn out. Yes turning on for a few minutes will burn it our quicker as well. Hope this helps.
