Re: replacement lamp won't work
On all projectors, there is a lamp timer that must be reset when the lamp is changed, if not, when they get to a certain amount of hours the projector will NOT operate. Fortunately, if this is the case I can help you solve the issue.

If you bought a lamp from eBay then its most likely not a real brand bulb. The PT-AE1000 uses an ET-LAE1000 lamp that should have an Osram, Philips or Matsushita brand bulb. If you do not see PVIP, M or UHP on the bulb then its most likely your problem. Cheap lamps are not worth the money. They fail early and end up costing you more money in the long run. Panasonic Projector Lamp
These folks sell lamps that always work. I would return the eBay lamp and buy one that will work. Their support and customer service are one of the best in the industry.
can you let the projector work well
if the projector projects the image,
does the projector light?
if the projector work well ,but the indicator lights flashing,that means the projector is ok ,
you only need to reset the timer of lamp and to reset the timer of the filter,
menu-setting-advance-reset-the timer of the lamp
menu-setting-advance-reset-the timer of the filter
Here is some information on this model which I hope will help...
The lamp indicator lights when the lamp is due to be replaced. It will flash if a circuit abnormality is found. The temp indicator lights if an abnormal temperature is detected. If it goes too high it will shut down flash.
The lamp indicator is furthest away from the power switch if that helps.
If the lamp timer was approaching the end of the lamp life you would see a REPLACE LAMP nag screen when the projector is turned on. The fact that you have not mentioned this suggests that this is unlikely to be the problem.
The filters on the model are on the underside. There is a removable panel directly under the lens. You should not use canned air as you are blowing dust into the projector. It is recommended that you use a vacuum cleaner. Filters should be cleaned every 100 hours and replaced when the projector is relamped. You can wash the filter by hand with water only, ensuring it is dry before replacing it. Do not run the projector without the filter in place.
1:Remove the lamp from the projector. Ensure that it has no cracks, discoloration or "smoky" appearance.
2:Try removing and reseating the lamp, or to try another lamp.
3:Reset your lamp timer. Most projectors have no way of knowing if you physically have replaced your lamp or moved it out . They rely on the user resetting the lamp timer
4:Pull the lamp back out of the unit, give is a brisk shake and reseat the lamp. Occasionally there is some buildup on the lamp contacts or filament during manufacturing.
5:Are the input and output vents blocked or obstructed in any way? That could cause overheating problem and what you see with your projector is one of it's symptoms .
6:Are the filters dirty or clogged? Most manufacturers will recommend filter cleaning on a monthly basis depending on usage .After cleaning the filter always remember to reset your projector .
7:Remove any extension cords, power strips and/or surge suppressors. Many current model projectors will not even try to ignite the lamp if they detect drops or fluctuation in voltage supplied to the unit. This is a safety feature to reduce stress on the lamp.
It is an indication that the projector is in sleep mode. Press power button and check for any changes on the led indicators. If the power turns red, it means unit is hot. check if the fan is working and if the air filter is clean or needs cleaning. If the lamp turns red it means the lamp is busted, You will experience this since lamp is clearly blown. But if both lights are red, it means that the unit is busted and will require service.
this is a fairly old model!
the lcd optic engine requires cleaning as the mirrors inside will be dusty,also from what u have mentioned,it appears that the polarising filters inside are damged.pl check if the image that u see is spotless.if it has permamnent patches of green or red or yellow, then the polarising filters are damged & u need to change them!
