hi

i need help with my Sanyo z2 projector.

when i start it, it works (green power light) for a few seconds and goes into standby mode (blinking red power light).

the lamp does not start at all.

i have checked and it is not the cover switch

any ideas?

thanks

Bad lamp? How old is the unit, how many hours did you have on it? Have you tried removing the power cord for a minute, then plugging back in?

It sounds to me like it turns on, charges caps, tries to start the lamp and fails, then goes to standby. I have zero experience with your PJ, but I'd call their customer support line. Sometimes 45 minutes on hold is worth the wait.

thanks for the reply

someone gave it to me so i do not know the history.
i tried the power cord thing and it doesn't change a thing.

i guess it could be a bad lamp but the lamp replacement light does not turn on. any way to make sure/rule out bad lamp as a reason?

I have a Z2 as well but have not had the issue you describe. I am still on the original bulb and it works great. I would suspect the lamp as well. A replacement lamp is around $300 and given the age of the projector you have to ask if it is worth it as you can get a better projector now for under $1000.
