    My Z2 lamp is coming up to 1300 hours, all at the low setting. What's the general experience with lamp life in the Z2? Has anyone had to replace one yet? And are there any particularly recommended suppliers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Someone on another forum got around 2000 hours and I think replaced it since it was getting dim. So who knows.

    ive just got this projector - how do you check how many hours you have used on the bulb?

    Know it sounds stupid but couldn't find it on any of the menus!!

    Let me know, thanks

    I got a replacement lamp for my Z1(£221.69 inc delivery) from GM Services Milton Keynes Tele 01908 321103,they are an official Sanyo service agent.
    They seemed quite competitive and I received the lamp 2 days after I ordered it even though they did not have one in stock when I rang.
