When we turn on our PT-AE3000U it will power up until the blue screen with "PANASONIC" written across it appears and then it will just shut off. WHy is this?? We have changed to lamp in it...

if it abruptly turns off the thermal sensor could be worn out and triggering to shutdown, other than this it may be software related.

be sure that the projector is receiving a signal in the correct input form a DVD player or something to ensure that its not just on the standby screen.

My bulb went out in my x1a so i replaced it now it

is the led on the top of the projector blinkng at all? if there is no led lit, the fuse on the power supply may be blown or the power supply itself needs replacing. turn the projector on. you should hear the fans and a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear that whir or it sounds like a noisy motor, the colorwheel needs replacing. if it sounds good but no light, make sure you have the correct lamp. the x1a takes the sp-lamp-009 lamp. it should have 2 white wires, each at opposite ends of the plug. if you have a lamp with a red wire and a white wire, you have a lamp for an x2. also make sure the lamp door is closed completely. if the door is closed (hitting the switch), the lamp is correct, the led is green, and the sounds are good and it still does not light, the ballast is bad and needs replacing.

it's the fan. if it won't spin full power, it can't cool down the projector and it'll shut down. there are 2: 60mm (part # 526-0153-00) and 80mm (526-0152-00). both can be purchased from infocus or an infocus service center.

Broken lamp on Sharp XV Z9000 and projector not switching on

if the lamp blew during use, the projector was not able to complete the shut down mode. it will turn on by itself until it does. replace the lamp, let it warm up, and press power to initiate the shut down. after it powers down, reset the lamp timer and turn it on. all should be well.

Our Eiki LC-986 projector has worked flawlessly for at least 3 years. Last week, the projector shut itself down after approximately 30 minutes of use. This happened at least 5 times, so we replaced the...

It sounds like it is overheating. Are the fans all working? If so, try opening the casing and blowing all the dust out with a can of air from Staples/Office Depot. If the fans aren't working you may need to replace them.

Fan noise loud, bulb burst. Replaced with new bulb. Noise even louder! Unit shuts itself off.

the bulb may have burst from overheating from a fan not working to cool it down. and it can be replaced. it does take, however, a while to replace it because you have to take half of it apart. but make sure it's the fan first. take the lamp door off and remove the lamp. use something small and thin to push in the switch that the lamp door usually activates. turn the projector on and see if the lamp fan and the colorwheel (the multicolor glass disk) are spinning. if the fan spins, the noise may be from the colorwheel motor going bad. the fan can be purchased through an infocus authorized service center. check the website for the closest one. but the colorwheel for the x1 cannot be purchased seperately from the optical engine, and that costs a fortune. but here is the part number for the 80mm fan- 526-0152-00.

Optoma H31 - Turns itself off !

sounds like the projector lamp to me. the rated hours are always up to the published hours and never "this is what you will achieve." I would suggest getting a lamp as you will need one shortly by the sounds of it. In many cases the projector does this as it is programmed to protect itself from the lamp shattering inside the projector. Let me know if you would like a quotation for a lamp as we ship internationally. Regards Kevin Andreassend. +64-9-4142348

Possible cause is overheating.
Do you hear the fan working?
What happens when you use the lowest level light output?
Does it run longer?

Also possible cause is a faulty temp sensor.
AC wire connection may not be firmly pressed in socket.

Unit shuts itself down

Sounds like you have an overheating problem. Maybe a bad fan? Also you may have a bad connection to the "bulb".
