There appears to be new filtration system with the Z4, including a second filter. Not sure if this was also on the Z2 and Z3. And there are the dust blow holes for cleaning the panels to help prevent heat buildup. So the Z4 is in untested water as far as the Z2 problem is concerned.
Some other pj's have their own warranty problems. Great customer service but no parts in stock or defective parts still being shipped out. It's a crap shoot for all of us.
I would always seek the dealer's support on these matters and not sure if original poster talked about any dealer assistance.
It took 5 1/2 years (out of warranty for sure) for this problem to occur on my Sony lcd, and Sony wants $5000 to repair/replace the prism block, despite the fact that their new pjs retail at $3500.
Being a light to moderate user, I took my chances and ordered the Z4, especially at the new pricing point. Even if I had to pay the $500 to fix a Sanyo warrantyless, nonservice problem in a few years, the total cost of the Z4 pj would still be closer to the selling price a month ago and more than 20% less than msrp.

Back in the early days, there were just HD demo loops, no programming. Now HD 3D and 4k.
