SANYO PLC-XE32 Projector shuts down overheating ?
We have about 10 of these Sanyo PLC-XE32 projectors. All installed in the same year (2008)
In the last few months they have started randomly shutting off. It seems like it's overheating somehow.
Luckily one was still under warranty so we sent it back. (to Sanyo repairer TP Matrix)
They said it needed a new set of fans under warranty and a Deep Optical clean at £95 extra.
(I suspect they were just cashing in)
So we had 3 that were out of warranty that was cutting out every 10 mins.
With nothing to lose we stripped on right down, quite easily.
There was not much dust or debris inside at all.
The fans were surprisingly clean and no signs of heat build-up anywhere.
No optics were dirty or melted and all seemed to be OK.
(We have seen projectors that are older than 5 years in a worse state that didn't cut out and jsut needed a clean)
So the question is, is there a inherent design fault on these projectors?
Do you have this model and is that showing the fault?
How did you fix it?
