Sanyo is being bought by Panasonic? Too bad!
This Z5 is my bedroom companion, have had it since 2008 and I really like it!
No clue on where I can get an original replacement bulb?

My lamp finally gave out after about 3000 hours. Not powering on anymore.
Where should I buy a replacement lamp?
They range from 72 to 260 on eBay and Amazon.com.
Should it be an original lamp for Sanyo or will any lamp do?
I'm completely lost about this, any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Hello and good morning/evening fellow forum members :)
Unfortunately my first post is regarding a problem with my 3.5 years old Sanyo Z5. Hopefully someone will be able to help or suggest a solution or at least identify the source of the problem!
So, around 5-6 months ago I noticed - as I start Media player classic - the white bottom and top bars of the program projected 1 more time each a few inches further towards the center of the projector. They are faded but clearly visible in the black backround. Also they don't have the same width, its like the are doubled in a conical way towards the center of the screen.
I didnt investigate further but slowly during the next months I start noticing double bright objects in fairly dark scenes...
Finally I start testing and every time i projected bright objects in dark scenes they were doubled.
The last and most important piece of info is the actual projector menu test. Unfortunately even that is diagonally doubled/shifted a few inches towards the center of the screen. It's an exact copy of the menu, all colors and details are there in the ghost image just faded.... The menu is in the top left corner of the projector although I think that is irrelevant as the shutdown minute counter which is in the bottom right corner is also shifted to the left and center exactly the opposite way compared to the menu!
While testing the lens was dead center and zoom is not making any difference... also the test performed with 2 different bulbs with same results!
I did a factory reset/default and played with almost all the values of the service menu (I put them back to the original) with no effect.
Thanks for reading this long post, I tried to describe the problem as accurately as I could and I will try my best to answer more specific questions!

Heres what I found out from Sanyo Canada. I thought this information might be usefull for someone else in the same situation.
The blue panel is not available as individual parts. It comes with the red and green panel as a whole assembly from the factory. The cost of this panel assembly is about $1,000. There are many polarizes and the price ranged from $50 to $100, labour is $90 per hour. Our shipping address and general service information are as follows.
So there it is, looks like its time to start PJ shopping!

Hi, my venerable and much enjoyed Z5 is developing what I think are age problems. There is a ever growing yellowish blob in the center of the scren and recently after installing a new lamp there are blue, constantly changing ghostish images in the background. Both of these problems would probably not be noticed by the average viewer but I can see them and thats the problem. My question is, is this pj worth sending to Sanyo for repairs? As I said it has a new lamp with low hours and yes the 3 year warranty has lapsed. Thanks for your opinions!
