  1. Front Projector
    Selling my trusty Sanyo PLV-Z4 720p projector. This is one of the two top projectors in the < $3000 category back in 2006. Comes with original packaging, manuals, cleaning air bulb, power cord, remote. Projector is in great shape cosmetically and functions as expected. Lamp usage is at 2,087...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I've been firing up the Z4 for 8 years now. Something I didn't plan on happening, but it still works really, really good. In its life it has only seen two bulbs; the original bulb and the replacement bulb that came with the unit as a promotion. I'm not even sure which bulb is in it now, since...

     Hey guys I'm new to this whole projector thing so bare with me. My son is trying to hook up his Playstation 4 to our old PLV-Z4 projector but he is having an audio issue. The projector has 1 HDMI INPUT but NO AUDIO OUPUT >OR     Thanks for ANY help!

    We're moving to a new house in December and I'll finally have a dedicated home theater. The room is in the basement and closed-off with light control (no windows!). I've been researching the "latest" in projectors, as I only bother to catch-up every few years when I buy a new one. My last...

    Turned our projector on and door opened and startup began but lamp didn't light up and warning light and lamp replacement light came on. Purchased a new genuine lamp and changed it in machine. But same thing still happens. Any suggestions? Is there a reset procedure using buttons on unit...

    Ok, so my old workhorse Z-4 blew it's lamp last week. I ordered a new one, but in the meantime I replaced it with a spare I had that was dim but functional. When I replaced it I vacuumed out all of the glass bits I could find. However, when I went to replace the lamp with the new one this...
  7. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Well, I have a house now. Naturally, I need to set up an awesome movie watching/video game playing area. Here's what I've done so far (mostly just painting): The area is actually quite large -- the gigantic sectional throws it off a bit. The sectional is around 14 ft wide in...

    Hi there, I have a HT in a unique and problem room. I have low ceilings in my basement t and the only place I can place my PJ is about 11 feet from my 97 inch carada screen, and to the side by about 30%, so people don't walk into it. Lol. I've had great results with a Sanyo Z4. People were...

    Let me start by saying that this ISN'T the thermal switch issue (flashing lights). I had that, multiple times. This started, just a couple weeks ago. The lens cover opens, the lamp doesn't strike, and the warning/power LEDs turn on and stay solid (red and amber, respectively). My first...

    Hi - I've got a ceiling mounted 1080i Sanyo PLV-Z4 (might be the Z5...can't remember and the model isn't on the projector). I've got it in a basement room (though ambient light can be a bit of a problem) roughly 15' from the screen. I bought it in 2006 and believe it or not, have yet to...
  11. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi all, I bought a Sanyo PLV-Z4 a few years back, brand new, from visual apex, after much research on here. It's served me pretty well for occasional movies and PS3, but relatively low usage overall. After 100 hours or so, it was hit with what seemed to be somewhat common, flashing replace...
  12. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    So the other day my Z4 shuts down with the symptoms of thermal switch issue (blinking red/yellow lights, lamp doesn't turn on, shutter closes after 30 seconds). The projector only has 400-500 hours on it and the bulb is only a 300 hundred hours old. So last night I unplug it and take off the...

    Ok couldn't remember my old account so registered new account. We have a Z4 which we bought new years and years ago and it has performed like a champ until recently with a strange problem. When we switch over to HDMI input for the PS3 after being switched over for 10-20 minutes the pj shuts...
  14. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I powered on my Sanyo Z4 the other day and the lamp never turned on. When I pushed the power button, the power light turns green and the lens door opens. Then, when I would normally hear a "click" and see the bulb turn on; instead the power, warning, and lamp-replace lights turn solid orange...

    I just got one of these from a buddy...said it worked fine when he placed it on the shelf but then wanted me to join the ranks of projector ownership... New projector bulb with about 3 hours before putting unit away... Plugged it into my system with Oppo Blu-Ray BDP-83...connected VIA...
  16. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Dead sanyo z4, no warranty. I am on a shoestring budget and I am trying to figure out if the this 720p Acer H5360 for $500 will work as a stop gap until I can afford a 1080p model next year. Throw distance was about 12 feet, but all these cheap projectors seem to require at least 14 feet to...
