I have a Sanyo PLV-Z3000 that suddenly started showing vertical lines (see attached image). I held up a white piece of paper to clarify that the lines are not due to the screen.

It still shows the lines with no A/V connections (no HDMI plugs, Component, etc. connected to the unit) just the power cord and when viewing the sanyo splash screen the lines still appear. My lamp has less than 1400 hours. I tried cleaning the RGB panels using the air bulb but that didn't make any noticeable difference. I'm running out of ideas here.

I haven't the foggiest clue as to what caused this thing to start doing this. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

If you are sure it is not dirty power (Try another outlet or take it to a friends), then it's probably the projector itself failing.

I tried a different HDMI cable to the z3000.
I also played the same pattern to another LCD HD display which showed the pattern perfectly.

I will play with the setting more reducing the iris and so on.

Hi!
I am having a similar color uniformity issue with my Sanyo PLV Z-3000 which I bought January 2010. The left margin has a pinkish toned most noticeable on medium to dark greys and the right half of the image has a greenish tone.
I also have a green spot that I could not get rid of using the Z3000 cleaning system with the blower. When I focus on this spot I get perfecly alined grid of dots that feather out into a circular shape.

I'll try post some better pictures tomorrow, in the meanwhile, any ideia what can be causing this? I hope it's not panel degradation as one of the reasons for purchasing this projector was the inorganic panels that supposedly last much longer than organic ones and should not have this behaviour. Right?
The lamp is now around 1300 hours, could this issue be related to the lamp condition?
Should I just send it for maintenance cleaning?

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you have an old lamp handy, try that of course. Otherwise, yup, send it in.
Same goes to the other guy, they both look like warranty issues to me, unfortunately.

Sorry you guys had such bad luck, I know it must really suck.
I had the Sanyo z4000 and it produced a GREAT image, sent it back just because I think it won't be bright enough when I go to a larger screen, but may end up keeping it if the RMA is denied.

Good luck, I hope Sanyo treats you right.

I think the Sanyo is probably a reliable projector, just looks like you guys got unlucky.

Unfortunately, because I bought the projector through Pixmania Online Store, Sanyo Portugal does not cover my warranty.
It's weird, because I actually picked up my projector and paid it at an actual Pixmania physical store in Portugal, but Sanyo Portugal said that they could not repair my equipment for free, because on all accounts my projector was bought outside Portugal and they were not its distributor. It seems that my warranty is only covered in european countries where Sanyo Fisher-Sales operates and this is not the case for Portugal.

So, had to go back to Pixmania, where I left my projector. It will be sent to Pixmania France, then to Sanyo for repair and hopefully it will be back within a month in good working order (fingers crossed)!

Thanks for your help!
Will let you know how everything turns out.
Cheers,
Ricmes

Sorry for taking so long to answer back but only last week was everything solved.
Since maintenance/repair took more than a month, Pixmania offered me a full refund credit which I used to purchase an Epson TW5500 (9500UB in the US) for more €150,00.

I am very happy with it (no dust blobs, for now at least!). Even though color uniformity is definitly not perfect it is nowhere near has bad as the Sanyo PLV Z3000 came to be. Also, great picture quality out of the box, great contrast and very deep blacks!

Still, can anyone tell me if range/zoom distance can cause issues in color uniformity?

Cheers!

No, I do not believe that there should be noticeable color uniformity issues regardless of your range or zoom settings... I am betting that you had an internal filter or other misalignment problem. My PLV-Z3000 looks incredible on my 120 inch screen projected from 19 feet away. Test patterns look nice and even from left to right. I am very impressed with how much better it looks than my former 720p PLV-Z5, which was a very highly rated projector in its own right. And the black levels are much better than what the Z5 had.

Hey folks can anyone tell me how to access the service menu on the PLV-Z3000, or at least how to disable the annoying 20 second lamp warmup delay? It's causing timing/race condition problems with my home theatre PC and amp startup sequence.

I am curious... why would the projector warm up period create problems?

Hate to bump this ol thread but I have had the Z3000 for awhile now with no issues at all....

I came here to hopefully figure out where to find a replacement filter, I slacked on maintenance and filter is really dirty. I need a bulb too, going on my 2nd replacement since purchasing it from projector people. I was thinking about APEX bulbs, has anyone ordered from there? They claim to be OEM....

Eitherway, sorry to hear about the bad luck some of had with theres, Ive honestly had no good reasons to dump this bad boy yet....

For the most part, you shouldn't really have to replace the filters... just take them out and carefully vacuum them. I am lucky in that my theater room is downstairs without any unnecessary opening of doors or windows, so each time my filter warning comes on, they still look really clean!

I also would like to hear about what a good bulb vendor would be... I still have a good amount of hours to go yet, but no longer do I use low lamp mode like I used to.... switched to full power mode all the time now to get nice satisfactory brightness.

I must say though, that I have been very satisfied with the performance of my Z3000! I have a light meter and have calibrated the gray scale with the help of my Onkyo receiver which has full cut and gain controls for Red, Green and Blue and I have a fantastic picture...

One thing that I have learned from the service menu, is that if you truly want the best brightness from this projector, you need to start your calibrations in either Living Room or Dynamic modes. What those modes do is "remove" what Sanyo calls a Cinema filter from the optic path(you can actually hear it actuate when you switch into and out of these modes to other viewing modes). With this Cinema filter disengaged, brightness is tremendously better and as long as you can make satisfactory adjustments to your greyscale, you can still get a great picture.

Awesome, thanks for your response...

I ended up ordering a bulb from projector people... Only place I have ordered one from, including my PJ and bulb will be here in the morning!!!...

Yes this Pj has been awesome and it has given me years of acceptable picture, enough so I don't think I will have to upgrade for awhile... I game on it a few hours almost every night.
Wife said after vacation, I can start looking for another one...... smile.gif

Eitherway, projector people if you want authentic bulbs and great service!....

I was going to go with another company to save a few $$ but figured I would probably kick myself later if I did..

Hi

 

Some years ago you wrote about service menu and your PLZ-Z3000 projector.

Can you still remember how to access this service menu?

I cannot anything about it when seraching Google.

Jacob,


I happen to have the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 projector! I am not sure if the following info pertains to the Sanyo PLV-Z3000 but they are almost identical. You would think that Service Menu entry might be the same for both projectors, but you can carefully try.


*** VERY IMPORTANT... READ AND HEED THIS WARNING!!!!! ***

FIRST, LET ME SAY THAT "ANY MODIFIED DATA WILL BE SAVED WHEN YOU EXIT THE SERVICE MENU, THERE'S NO WAY TO GO
BACK TO THE DEFAULT VALUES - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK"

>>> WRITE ALL CURRENT VALUES DOWN BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE ANYTHING AND BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL!!!!!! eek.gif


Here is a link to the beginning of the Sanyo PLV-Z2000 Tweak Thread for some possible future tweak references!
http://www.avsforum.com/t/947600/sanyo-plv-z2000-tweak-thread


And here is a link to a post within the PLV-Z2000 Tweak thread outlining the entry into the Service Menu http://www.avsforum.com/t/947600/sanyo-plv-z2000-tweak-thread/1440#post_15946934


Best of luck... Hope this helps and post back how you make out!

Hi

 

Thanks a lot.

I got into the service menu of my PLV-Z3000 by following same precedure as for Z2000:

On the remote: "Menu" key during around 30s till there's an "S" on the left corner of the screen, then "Screen" till the menu appear.

And I can see the group for iris and fan are the same for Z2000 as for Z3000.

Now I just have to find the group for convergence.

Do you happen to know this group?

 

Regards

Jacob

Glad the procedure worked for you! biggrin.gif

I do not know the Convergence entry procedure, however maybe there is a PLV-Z3000 Tweak thread. If not, you might be able to ask in the PLV-2000 Tweak thread that I outlined.

Warning light consistently red

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this projector last week. I was advised that the projector was working fine and all it needed was a bulb replacement.
Before purchasing the bulb I thought I would test it first to make sure its in good working order before replacing the bulb.

I switched it on and the tray/shutter door opened and then closed half way and I received no image. All I got was a red warning light that was consistent/not flashing.
I played around with it with little luck. After a while I tried again and the projector worked for a few minutes and the the same error appeared.

Has anyone experienced this issue and found a solution. I would love to get this projector working and it would be a shame to throw it out.

The manual is very vague regarding this error.

--------
The projector is shut down and the WARNING indicator lights red.
When the projector detects an abnormal condition, it is
automatically shut down to protect the inside of the projector
and the WARNING indicator lights red. In this case, unplug the
AC power cord and plug it, and then turn on the projector once
again to verify operation. If the projector cannot be turned on and
the WARNING indicator lights red, unplug the AC power cord and
contact the service station

I have never owned the Z3000, but I have owned the Z2 and Z4. I had a similar issue on my Z4. Your issue may be the same.


The Z4 has a thermal switch that is accessible if you remove the projector top cover. It is a cylindrically shaped button in the corner located near the lamp assembly. If there is any kind of power surge, it shuts off like a breaker. If you push this button so it "clicks", it resets the "breaker". It solved my Z4 issue.


If you check your Z3000, you may find a similar button. Again, I'm only guessing based on my experience with the Sanyo Z4, but it can't hurt to look.

Thanks for the replies.
Unfortunately that didn't rectify the issue.
I had it checked by a tech and I've been advised that the most probable cause of the error is is the fan and/or iris.

Is it worth repairing this unit?
The projector has done 5956 and 1105 hours on the bulb.
I have been quoted approximately $400 for repairs which will give me three months warranty on the unit.
How do these units compare to modern projectors?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

I assume you got this projector for free? Otherwise, why would you ever go through this hassle for it? I would have returned it and got my money back as it obviously was defective and the seller mislead you on it operational status... Not to mention, if those operation hours are correct, that is a high amount anyway...And I assume those hours are spread out over a bulb change at some point? No way those hours are on the original bulb is it? If it is still the original bulb, then I can see why the projector is showing an error....

At any rate, if all you are looking for is a 1080p projector, then there are a lot better options out there for your money if faced with spending $400 just for a repair and then still have to buy a bulb....IMO..

The unit was given to me for free. As for the actual lamp it has been replaced and the current one has done 1105 hours so it still has some life remaining. The components that are being replaced is the Iris and one of the fans plus a clean and service.

In your opinion it's just not worth it?

Tough call... and only you can really decide whether it is worth it or not... Listen, I loved my 3000... Threw out a great picture (after calibration) and had some great features with the 5:5 pulldown and its adjustable 120 Hz CFI modes...and nice quiet fan. Not the brightest of units, but if you have a dark room, then not really an issue.. So after $400, if everything is good you will get another 1000 hours and then have to look to spend another $200-300 for a legit lamp.. I guess it depends on how much usage you will give it also.. Daily? 4 times a week, less?

I think it may be wiser to consider something along the lines of like this from Visual Apex... especially if you are looking to just stay with a 1080p non 3d projector...

Unit with a new lamp that's rated for twice as many lifetime hours, much better brightness(2000 lumens) and comes with a 2 year parts and labor warranty.. The 8350 didn't have the CFI bells and whistles that the PLV-3000 had, but it was a solid projector and was highly rated... just a thought...

Calibration shouldn't be an issue as I have a friend who has the Spyder 3 Pro Display Calibration.
As for high definition projectors they aren't cheap in Australia and shipping from the US is expensive.

Thanks again deano86 for your advice
