I have a Panasonic PT-AX200 projector. The projector is installed in a well ventilated space and plugged directly into a wall oulet (no power bar). The problem I have is at about an hour into a movie the picture will flash very bright for a split second. This happens 2 or 3 times, all within about a 10 minute period (an hour into the movie). Also, it seems that sometimes the brightness of the picture seems to "flicker". Any ideas?
I have the same problem (cycling between 2 brightness levels). I contacted the shop and the salesman (who is an expert in home cinema installations etc) told me that it has to be the last hours of my lamp's life... I don't know yet, I'll find out soon though...

Its the most common poblem with the ax 100-200 projector.Many a times only the ballast requires to be replaced.yet on may occasions both mainboard and ballast requires replacement. its best to confirm with a good known working ax200 and replace first the lamp, ballast and the mainboard.panasonic ax 200 lamps also have failed premature as per my experience.
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.
Read very carefully this is the only solution to reset lamp timer
1. Connect the mains lead to the projector and a mains socket, and switch the MAIN POWER on. 2. Press the POWER button.
3. Press the MENU button to display the menu.
4. Select the OPTION menu and press the ENTER button.
5. Select LAMP RUNTIME.
6. Press and hold the ENTER button for approximately 3 seconds.
7. The confirmation screen will be displayed and select OK.
8. Press the POWER button to turn off for resetting the duration of the LAMP RUNTIME.
9. Next time when you POWER ON the projector the duration of time in LAMP RUNTIME is reset to "0 H".
Is your projector connected to a source? ( Computer, DVD, or any device) make sure the connection is tight/properly plug in so that the projector will recognize the device attach to it and override the standby mode.
Hope this helps, thanks for contacting Fixya. Please keep us posted of issue. Cheers!
Hi, I'm afraid, no remote option available to focus image of this projector and has to do manually. Check projector Menu and select Test Pattern for optimum focus and it would be one time job if projector and screen distance has not been changed.
I'm not sure about the advice regarding "color management" as it has nothing to do with focus.
User manual link is also broken and take you no where.
yes and no. it is a burn spot on the light filter on the blue lcd panel due to excessive dust and heat. panasonic does not sell individual parts of the optical engine, so you'll have to replace the entire engine. to avoid it happening again or getting worse, keep the projector cool and dust free. use canned air to blow it out.
the lamp is good for about 2000 hours. after this, the lamp may still work, but not as well or for very much longer. after you replace the lamp, you have to reset the lamp timer (in the menu settings).
