Panasonic AE100U Keeps shutting off

My Unit keeps shutting off within a couple minutes of turning it on. In order to turn it on again i need to turn off the main power switch, turn it back on than press power on the remote. Lately i have to do this 2-3 times before it will stay on. It started long before i needed to change the bulb and continued after I replaced the bulb & Filter and reset the run time. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. It started a couple of weeks ago. My projector turns off after 2 minutes. After I turn off and then on the main switch I turn on the projector. The projector runs fine for hours then.

    My unit started doing this EXACT thing just a few weeks ago. Did any of you update your nvidia drivers (8800 gtx)? That is the only thing I can think of, other than a broken projector.

    runs for aminute or two then shuts off. Have to turn main power off then on to make it turn on again. No noticeable change in picture when it happens.

Sounds like a lubrication problem to me. Are any of the optical lenses lubricated. If so, sounds like a bad Grease Problem that should have never happened in the first place.

Panasonic should rectify this problem since it also occurred with my projector when the lamp was less than a 1000 hours. old.

I have exactly the same problem. I was told by Panasonic sales rep that a shipment of AE1000U projectors came in that have a faulty board (he thought optical board but wasn't sure). Only solution is to replace the faulty board.

I am not sure if this is the same problem, but my projector was suddenly powering off completely, no indicator lights at all, after about 10 or 15 minutes. It would not power on either with remote, on/off switch, or wall power. After much fooling around, I found that if a moderate amount of pressure was applied between the two control dials on the top, it would power on. With some strapping, a small piece of wood, and a tap and bolt, I was able to permanently apply the needed pressure and my projector works like new.
Not pretty, but I did not have to crack open the case or send the unit in for maintenance.

Mitsubishi ac keeps on turning itself off

If the compressor overheats, the clixon circuit will shut off the power to the motor to prevent damage. Then when it cools it will close the circuit and the compressor will again run to only shut down again.
The suction line going to the compressor should be cold - the cold gas returning to unit cools the hermetically sealed motor. If that line is hot you may be low on refrigerant.

Pilot light keeps going out

pilot light keeps going out! more then likely its the thermal coupling doing this. if bad it shut all gas to heater for a safety measure. just shut power off, then turn gas off and replace it. then you should be ready to go. to relight heater hold down on gas vavle knob in the pilot position, hold down and light it at the coupling where gas comes out. when it is lit, continue to hold down for 60 seconds. release knob very slow. then if its lit, turn to the run position. if flme goes out, wait at least 5 minutes to expel the gas fumes and turn to pilot and try again. good-day !

Tv wont turn on< red power light just keeps blinking?

I have the same thing. Just started blinking 10 times. Pretty much had to unplug the unit over night. Could never turn it off and then turn it on again.
This worked for about a week. This morning, tried to turn it on after being unplugged. Still blinks.
Called Panasonic. they attempted a couple solutions, nothing. Suggested authorized repair shop.

Keeps filling with water and shutting off.

Air conditioners remove moisture from the air like a dehumidifier does. With portable units it is captured in a removable container and when full will turn the unit off so it won't overflow onto the floor. There should be option for a hose to attach to the bucket which could be run to a drain so you won't have to keep emptying the bucket. Just remember the a/c unit needs to be higher than the drain.

Dh305y6 keeps shutting of within minutes

sounds like you need to replace your humidistat control. this is just like a thermostat on an air conditioning system, except inside of sensing temp and turning off, it senses humidity and turns off.

Camera just won't work!!!

Are there any error codes on the screen? It sounds like your unit has a moisture problem or needs reset. Do the reset first. Remove the battery for about 30 minutes, reinstall and see what happens. If this doesn't solve the problem leave the unit in a dry area with the cassette door open for a day and then try it. If it still will not work you could have a bad moisture sensor (or most any problem) which will need replaced. If you are not capable of electronic repair you will need to find a reputable repair shop. Here a some websites which offer free estimates and may be helpful: or or Good luck.
