Topic:   Help! Projector keeps shutting off

Replaced the bulb of my projector a couple of months ago and now the projector is shutting off with no warning. The replace bulb light on the bottom of the projector is not on, suggesting that I need to replace the bulb. When the projector is working, the image looks great with vivid colors. The projector is 8 years old. Is it time to purchase a new projector or is something wrong with either my projector or bulb? Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Stinky

Topic:   Sanyo PLZ-Z4 help

We have had a Sanyo PLV-Z4 in out movie room for over 5 years now. About a year ago, I turned the projector on and heard a weird noise. The projector closed itself and began flashing to replace the bulb. It wasn't until a few weeks ago until we had the money and the motivation to replace it. When I put it in and turned it on...nothing. It just closed itself and flashed at me some more. I sent the bulb back to make sure it worked and just got word that if was functioning properly. My question is, what else could cause the replace lamp light to come on? I would really like to get this projector running since I now have an extra bulb for it. Note:I realized afterwards I misspelled the model in the title, It should read Sanyo PLV-Z4

Topic:   Moving to another Projector LCD to DLP????

I just want to add my 2 cents. I went from a dalite white screen to a greywolf II. my sanyo z4 projector is mounted on a 7ft ceiling and the actual lens is at about 6'7" from the floor, my throw is 12'4 and I do not have any complaints with the greywolf II. it is definitely brighter and more contrasty than the dalite. actually the results are startleing. I do have some ambient light issues,white ceiling, tan carpet,leakage around the drapes, thats why i switched over. When you state that ceiling mounts dont work with glass bead screens. you really need to specify "how high is up" at 7ft I have no issues and the picture is only slightly brighter standing up than sitting down. I still get a brighter picture with my ceiling mount and the greywolf than I had with the daylite. I do however acknowledge that the higher you raise the projector the less benefit the 1.8 gain will give you.. you however you will still have a more contrasty image with the grey wolf then with a pure white screen.

Topic:   problem: sanyoZ4 random shutdowns after lamp change

i bought two bulbs just like you described. they are not tru sanyo manufactured bulbs and now i am replacing my projector. one of them damaged the lens next to he bulb while it was overheating. closer inspection of both bulbs show they are 165 watts and not the 145 watts as required for the z4. they look exactly like the one you describe. i bought them 2 weeks apart from two different companies, advanced lamps and electrified discounters. i would recommed returning the bulb before it ruins your projector and stick with bulbs manufactured by sanyo.
