I sent my Z2000 in for repair, under warranty of course, for an LCD panel issue. I had yellow streak across my screen, according to my ISF tech, that is a sign of overheated panel. I had this issue occur within the 1st month of use.
I have used it for a yr before sending in to make sure nothing else would go on the PJ.
Anyway, the Sanyo repair tech called me to discuss the PJ. He replaced the LCD panel and is shippping it back but commented that LCD panels going bad due to overheating is not supposed to be covered under warranty. He also stated that the PJ is not designed for the amount of hrs. we put on it (8hrs per day). I know that bulb replacement will be a cost that i will have to accept, especially with the amount of hours in use. However, I am a bit concerned about longevity of the PJ and the LCD panel itself. I should be able to get more than 3000 hrs out of the PJ (i know the bulb is rated around 2k hrs).
