We recently replaced the lamp for our Panasonic PT-AE700U We forgot to reset the timer through the on screen menu as instructed. Now, after 3 weeks of use, the projector refuses to boot up. We suspect the projector didn't know we have replaced the lamp. Now, is there a way to re-set the lamp hours without going through the on-screen manu --- as the projector no longer boot up, on-screen menu is not accesible.

Re: Lamp hour reset
I don't thing that because you were not reset the time lamp used now your LCD projector stop function
What was exact the unit did? no power at all or some LED light up or flashing. In any case to reset the lamp time use you must enter when unit is on
As you mentioned you did replaced the new lamp, You should check again if you reinstalled properly the lamp and lamp cover because under the lamp cover it had a safety switch if this SW not active then the unit will be in protection mode
I sugges you to remove again the lamp and reinsert properly and secure the lamp cover and try it again and if it still is not go then let me know what are the status of the 2 LED

This is most likely the lamp. Replace the lamp and then in the setup menu you need to reset the lamp hours to zero. If you have replaced the lamp then you need to still reset the lamp hours to zero. If you do not it will never stay on longer than that hour. If both of these have been done and it is still doing this then it is over heating and this could be caused by lack of air flow (clean filters) or a bad power board.
There should be a menu that goes across the top listing video, audio, setup, projection....etc. Either under setup or advanced there will be a drop down menu with lamp settings under it. Under that menu will be a reset lamp or something as direct as lamp hours. That is where you can reset the lamp timer.
I have a Panasonic PT-AE4000U and could not reset the timer after replacing the bulb with a, non-Panasonic branded bulb. Calls to tech support were not very helpful. It was another bad customer service experience. Through troubleshooting it myself, I discovered the solution was simply to unplug EVERYTHING (serial cable, hdmi cables, etc.) from the device, power it off and back on. Follow the procedure in the manual, the timer immediately reset!!
