Help please guys. I have a Sanyo PLC-XE33 projector which shuts the lamp down after 15 seconds. The bulb is well within its life. Any suggestions will be most welcome.
We had a similar issue with an XE33, stayed on for longer than 15 seconds (about 15 minutes). Turned out to be a fan issue. Sanyo are aware of this problem so replaced the fans under warranty.

Thanks guys. I will have a look at what you suggest.
Sounds like an overheating issue. These projectors are designed to switch of when too hot. Have you changed/cleaned the filters? This could help you. An earlier suggestion was to speak to Sanyo. Most of the Sanyo projectors sold in the UK have an on-site warranty so you should have no problems, providing it is no older than 3 years old.
Hope this helps.
It sounds like a faulty lamp have you tried another, yes your lamp may be new but have you tried another.
if that does not sort it , it may be faulty ballest unit.
let me know when you try a new lamp.
Had similar issue with another Sanyo, sent away and it turned out to be a bulb fault although it lit and was within expected life hours. Bit costly to just get a bulb and try, pity no other way to test.
Just try a lamp from another projector? (same model of course).
