Question about Panasonic PT-AE700U Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

My picture brightness is uneven - there is a persistant bright field on my screen.

Starting about a month ago, a growing bright spot (where too much light is coming through) appeared on my screen. my lamp was at the end of it's life ("replace lamp" instruction would show up whenever i started the projector up - i checked, the lamp was about 2800 hours old), so i thought that was the problem. I replaced the lamp successfully, and the picture is better - but the bright spot (which bleeds from top to bottom of the screen, about 1/5th of the width) is still there.'s not the lamp...but what else could it be?

I have the exact same problem with my AE700. It a started about the same time, around 2500 hours for me. I lived with it untill I could afford a new bulb which arrived yesterday. The old bulb was still working at a 3603 hours when I installed the new one. But the new bulb didn't fix the problem for me either. I may try to take it apart this weekend and give it a good cleaning. Andy

You need to remove the cover and check where the lamp light is being attenuated in the optical path from the lamp to the front lens. I would try using a 12volt 50W halogen lamp in place of the real lamp and shine it into the optics system, and see where the brightness starts to go bad.

I have the same problem. All of a sudden there are plenty white dots all around the screen. As if 1/3 of the pixels are burnt. It cannot be the lamp because it is still as bright as before. It must be the internal screen or whatever. The "Troubleshooting" section of the user manual does not mention such thing.

InFocus IN72 shuts off after 20 min.

internal error. if the lamp looks ok and it doesn't have many hours on it, it might be the power supply. the capacitors dry out and do not supply sufficient voltage. the in72s do have that problem.

Canon XEED SX50 Multimedia Projector - Poor light on screen

the canon xeed sx-50 should beside its noisyness give a brilliant bright picture. if not check if there ist something wrong with the lamp? is it aged? did you buy it used? the lamp counter can be easily reset... the only reason for a faint picture could be the lamp's age or tons of dust inside the matrix :)

Actually you can turn the projector on and then tilt it in all directions and see if picture shadowing changes. I have experience with this issue on DLP TV'S. IT sounds like a light tunnel problem if you can see partial picture behind shadow. It is fixable but very tedious. But can be done. Do you have a picture of the problem that you could send over? Thanks Jay

Loud noise when it is in DVD player, low brightness

I had a similar sounding problem. When I opened it up I found that the segmented color wheel was missing the clear segment of glass. I have not been successful finding parts for it.
