Is the fan that cools the projection high intensity bulb running? This sounds like an overheating condition, there is a temp sensor that will shut the machine down if it senses the temp is to high and poses a fire hazard or further damage to the projector.
There is a chance that this problem is caused by excessive tempratures inside the projector, the projector shuts down to protect against damage and then it will fire again once it has cooled down.
You should ensure that all ventilation slots are unobstructed, and that the projector is not in an excssively hot or humid environment. The air exhaust vent is on the side of the projector (furthest from the lens).
It would be worthwhile removing the new lamp and carefully replacing it with the old one. Note the faults, and any sequence of flashing LEDS on the Power, Lamp & Temp indicators. Note down the number of flashes, length of flashes and colour as they can be used to locate the possible source of a problem. Then put the new lamp in and see if the problem is exactly the same. If it is it would suggest that the fault is definitely not the lamp.
When you fire up the projector, you should hear the cooling fans run, and they should continue to run for at least 2 minutes after the projector is turned off. If you can't hear a fan it may well indicate that it is faulty.
Without the exact detail on the error LED sequence it is impossible to diagnose the exact fault but the steps above will help cure the problem in many instances or at least help narrow it down if not. The act of removing and reseating the lamp can help with some problems where the lamp flickers.
If your projector won't fire up then you can't reset the lamp counter so that is not the problem.
The combination of LEDs you have given does not correspond to an error message. There should be two LEDs, one of which is the Lamp Indicator, and the other is the Temp Indicator.
It's possible that an overheating problem has caused this. Make sure the projector is in an area where the temprature is between 0 °C (32 °F) and 40 °C (104 °F) and the humidity is between 20% and 80% (with no condensation). It shopuld have unobstructed air flow around it.
Disconnect the power. Remove the lamp and place it aside. Clean the air filters, using a hoover, being careful not to damage the filter which is located on the underside at the front of the projector under a flap.
Carefully reinstall the lamp (when you say you replaced the lamp, did you buy a new PANASONIC lamp from a reputable source?) Try to fire up the projector. Note down any combination of LEDs if the projector doesn't work and post hem back here.
I have a Christie RoadRunner L8 that fires up,lamps turn on and about 5 seconds after the lamps fire up it shuts down and both the warning temp. and ready lights flash at the same time. It seems to me it must be a sensor that tells it to shut down thinking that the machine is too hot-all the fans work and all of the filters are clean and it is moving serious air any clue and if so where do I start to look for such items? Thanks in advance Kirk
I wish you had received a relevant answer to your question, as I'm experiencing exactly the same thing here. Not sure is this site notifies people when they get responses, but did you ever figure out what the problem was?
If the fan is not working, the lamp will not fire. If you have the owner's manual, it should indicate what the flashing lights mean. Check to make sure that the panels are seated properly. When you replaced the lamp, the outer cover was removed. If that is not seated back 100%, the unit will not work. There are a number of safety "checks" built into the unit to prevent damage and possibly fire as the lamps get really hot.
Check the items above and let us know your progress.
