Question about Panasonic PT-AE900U Multimedia Projector

2 Answers

Faulty Panasonic Projector

Panasonic PT AE 900U. Having already had the projector on in the afternoon, I went to turn it on later the same day and quickly realised it would not fire up. The power light on top of the projector has 2 colours - RED standby GREEN on. However, when the projector is turned on (via the switch on the back) only the green light illuminates and nothing else happens. Please help.

    i have exactly the same problem !
    seems like a broken psu to me :(

    This also could be an Iris problem. If you turn the power supply off for 30 seconds, repower and then try starting the projector you will confirm this.

    Mine has had this problem twice (once from new and then again six months later). It is now so bad, I have to power cycle it 6-8 times before it will stay on permanently.

    $260 to fix because I perservered with the problem rather than taking it back :(

Projector suddenly went unresponsive

open the bulb assembly and check if the bulb has fused / broken into pieces.if not then the ballast unit that powers the bulb is at fault and needs replacement
if the bulb has fused/broken , then probably the bulb that u had replaced 3 months back wasnt genuine!

I have the same problem with my pjtx100 after changing the lamp at 2000 hrs @$450 THE SCREEN STARTED to go blue at just over 2years use sent it back to the supplier who happen to be sony dealers they said...


Unfortunately, the value of projectors drop quickly after the production run ends. You will most likely find that the price of the blue prism will be higher than a comparibe working projector of the same model on ebay. I have a Panasonic PT-AE 900U, 1100 lumens 720P 5500 contrast. To replace the main board (if you can find it) cost over $700 from a supplier. The same projector used are going for $300 - $500 in working condition on ebay. I just bought another one and it gets a great picture plus I have a second bulb as a backup with a few hundred hours left on it. I still haven't thrown away the ailing projector in hopes of someday finding a cheap one for sale with a good mainboard and a problem else where. Now I can afford to wait for one to become available.

Hope this helps,

Panasonic PTAE 900U with new lamp and counter reset shut off

Reseat the lamp.  I had a similar problem.  Replaced the lamp and everything worked for about 3 hours.  Then, turned the projector off.  Next morning, when I turned it on, nothing.  Stanby/On light flashed green for a minute then the lamp light came on and the projector went into standby.

check the focus, or try to reset it back to factory specs in the menu.

does it stay on for about 10 minutes, then shut down? If so, that is indcating the lamp is near end of life, according to an hour counter built into the system.

The growling is probably the Dynamic Iris which has had a lot of issues. Mine started making noise after about 1 yr 9 months of ownership/use. Since I bought it with an AmEx card which doubles manufacturer warranty, I was able to send AmEx the quote, and they sent me a check, and I got it fixed.

The cheapest place I found for a replacement lamp is through one of the 2 or 3 sellers on ebay; I bought one last week for $260 delivered. Lamp is very easy to replace, but then follow instructions for resetting the lamp hour counter, or the unit will still think the lamp is near end of life.

No image, lamp light blincking red

I have a 3 yr old AE900U dont know exact hours but prob at least 2000 hrs. about every other start up, the projector would flash little box; (replace lamp now). now a month later lamp wont come on. So this is prob the normal way a lamp will die. anything else might be another problem.

Projector Doesn't Power-ON

Hi bmosai

Yes you will have to replace the lamp.

The Projector will shut down and stay off as a safety feature.
