I own a Sanyo z3000 home cinema projector since 2008. I am very happy with this projector. Unfortuntely it ceased to work. Under bullet 2 i would love some help if anyone has any idee ;)
1) I dont think i will be able to get it working again. I hoped it would live another 2 years untill 4 k projectors are availible. Now i have to buy a new one sooner than expected. I would love your help. Do i really need to go for the 2000 euro range like i did in 2008 ? or are there alternatives that offer the same features and quality as the Z3000 for a lower price (it has been 8 years after all). Do you guys have any advice for me?
2) I dont think you will be able to help but i will describe the problem with the beamer. When i switch it on it displays the blu opening screen and counts down 5 minutes to go to standby. No problem there. Everything works. When i switch on the input (blu ray, tv or computer) it give a clear image for a few seconds, then the shutter closes halfway and the power and error lights turn bright red. This is a unknow error. I cleaned the filters, took out the lamp (but put same one back) but still the samen error. I dont think it is a lamp problem (or do you think it is?) so am hesitent to buy a new one. Do you gus have any idea what i could do? love to have it for 2 more years untill 4k is standard.
My first post here: hope you guys can help!
Some new informatie. At first i thought it only happened when a input signal was given. Now it seems that when i switch on the projector it counts down from 5 minutes to 0 with a blue screen but after 2 minutes the shutter closes (complerely this time). now the lamp indicator starts flashing. So perhaps it is the lamp after all?
Anyone has a explanation for the half shut shutter when a input signal is given? any other ideas?

I've had my Sanyo Z3000 since July and the pixel convergence is bad. Looking at a white horizontal line, red pixels are 100% separated, sitting one full pixel above where they should be.
I shipped the projector back to Sanyo Canada, they examined it and shipped it back, stating that everything was within factory specs. When I called I was told the technicians are factory trained so if they say it's within spec, then the projector is fine. So, here are my questions: are the red pixels REALLY within spec? Am I wrong? What's my next step? Do I just live with it or is there someone else I can speak to?
Thanks for your advice.

I'm looking into my first projector and around the 2000 mark is where i'm at or less and the only one i've found is the Sanyo Z3000. Unfortunately there isn't much online for user comments or such except the france site home cinema. I'd like to know if this would be the best way to go for the price and if anyone has opinions on it. plus screen suggestions for a pull down 92" and what screen type works best for it. it'll be a evening night time projector. thanks.

Having read this on the 'projector news' page of this website, can anyone direct me to where I can buy this projector for the quoted price?
"Now that prices on the Sanyo Z3000 have dropped below $2,000 with a mail in rebate, this model deserves another look as well. It currently represents an outstanding value for those who have light controlled viewing space and want the best possible 1080p picture under $2,000"
This is the page:

Does anyone have any "optimal settings" suggestions for this projector? I'm in a light controlled room and the screen is 135" and white.
