The plugs on this model projector is very delicate, over time the solder around the plug will begin to crack. Until eventually the connection is lost. Another possibility is that the power supply has gone bad. Using another cord would not cause this. I can fix the projector if you'd like. My ebay screenname is gtitubro.

SOURCE: Hello, Sorry for my bad

Be sure to replace the lamp when the message [Replace with the new lamp.] appears. If you continue to use the lamp after the lamp has reached the end of its usable life, the lamp bulb may shatter, and pieces of glass may be scattered in the lamp case.--------------- POWER Indicator :------When this indicator is green, the projector is on; when this indicator is orange, it is in standby mode.----------- WARNING Indicator:-------- If this light blinks red rapidly, it indicates that an error has occurred, the lamp cover is not attached properly or the projector has overheated. If this light remains orange, it indicates that you have pressed a cabinet key while the Key lock is enabled. ----------- After your lamp has been operating for 2000*hours (up to 3000* hours in Quiet mode) or longer, the LAMP indicator in the cabinet will blink red and the message "Replace with the new lamp."will appear. Even though the lamp may still be working, replace it at 2000* (up to 3000* hours in Quiet mode) hours to maintain optimal projector performance. After replacing the lamp, be sure to clear the lamp counter. Resets the lamp clock back to zero. Selecting this option displays sub-menu for a confirmation. Select [Yes] and press the OK button. ---------- NOTE: The projector will turn off and go into standby mode after 2100* hours (up to 3100* hours in Quiet mode) of service. If this happens, press the INFO button on the remote control for ten seconds to reset the lamp clock back to zero. Do this only after replacing the lamp. --------------- Over-Temperature Protection:------- If the temperature inside the projector rises too high, the over-temperature protector will automatically turn off the lamp with the WARNING indicator blinking (2-cycle On and Off.) Should this happen, do the following: - Unplug the power cord after the cooling fans stop. - Move the projector to a cooler location if the room where you are presenting is particularly too warm. - Clean the ventilation holes if they are clogged with dust. - Wait about 60 minutes until the inside of the projector becomes cool enough. --------------] Now as you mentioned that you have replaced the lamp, so did you got original lamp or used or second hand lamp.Only original lamp is advisable.If you got lamp from ebay sites ,then most of the cases they provide used lamp,and in some cases they dont work.In that case new lamp is advisable.But if you got new lamp and still the same problem then check the lamp cover.The cover which you open to remove the old lamp.If that lamp cover is not closed properly then this problem occurs.If the cover is checked ok then other possibility is temp ventilations dirty.Clean the ventilations,check the internal fan is it running or not running.If its not running then fan is the problem.Its stuck with dirt or its got faulty. But if fan checked out ok and all dirt and ventilations cleaned and still the same problem then try reset procedure.Its mentioned above( press the INFO button on the remote control for ten seconds to reset the lamp clock back to zero. Do this only after replacing the lamp.) .Try reset if still the same problem then its faulty circuit board in the projector. ---------- Click this link for user manual:--- --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How to do lamp reset on panasonic pt-lb50u projector.

My projector won't turn on, only the power light shows red, the status light is blank. Tried the remote and manually turning it on.

If the power light is ON and status light is OFF; check if any objects are blocking the air inlet or outlet grill, and remove them if any, and carry out the following.
[1] Unplug the power cord from wall outlet.
[2] Make sure that the projector has cooled off.
[3] Plug the power cord into the wall socket.
[4] Press the power button.
Check whether the cooling fan has stopped. The problem is with overheating itself.
If these does not help you, your projector need service. OK.

It sounds like your lamp may need replacing. Before you go that route try all of these:
-Make sure the lamp cover on the bottom is fully attached. -If you unplug the power cord while the fan is rotating, the lamp may not turn on about 1 minute when you plug the power cord next time. After the status indicator stops blinking press the power button to turn it back on. May have to press it multiple times. -If your Power Light continues to blink red/green then you should contact your dealer.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Projector not booting up


The projector may not be receiving power or it may be malfunctioning. Turn the projector off and unplug the power cord. Confirm the power cord is securely connected to the projector and then plug the cord back in to a different outlet and turn on the projector. If this does not solve the problem, and another light is on or flashing, check the projector’s status.

Hope this helps
