Panasonic PTAE 900U with new lamp and counter reset shut off
I replace lamp, reset the counter but the projector always shut off after a 30' of use. The lamp lcd is flashing and I need to turn off/on the unit If I want to use it. I think it had a bug but I don't know if I can made something easily or need a repair by specialist. Help please.

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.

The problem you are describing sounds like one of two issues. Either the lamp is bad and needs replaced, or there is a power supply fault. If you have tried replacing the lamp already, make sure you reset the lamp counter or the projector may still not function properly.
does the temp warning light come on when the projector shuts off? if so, you may also try cleaning the air vent filters and ensure there is proper air flow around the projector. if that checks out then have the projector serviced as the power supply is likely suspect.

Hi, Replacing the lamp in a Sharp LCD projector requires the lamp indicator to be reset. When the lamp needs to be replaced, the indicator becomes red. Resetting the counter for the lamp hours to zero will also reset the indicator to green.
Attach the power cord to the projector and plug it into an electrical outlet.
Step 2Locate the buttons on the top of the projector and simultaneously hold down the "Enter", "Menu" and "down arrow" buttons, then press the "Standby/On" button.
Step 3Continue holding all four buttons depressed until the lamp indicator light begins flashing green.The counter is now reset. Zero hours will now be displayed on the screen.
unscrew the lamp door on the bottom of the projector, unscrew the lamp, remove the lamp, replace with new lamp, screw in, replace door, turn on, and reset lamp counter (menu-settings-lamp counter reset-yes)..
panasonic projectors , even if the lamp has reached end of life gives u 10 minutes to reset the lamp counter so when u replace a new lamp, go to options, lamp counter, reset & press stanby button for confirmation! thats all the unit powers off & when u check the lamp counter , its shows 0 u r done!!!!!!
Press the MENU button to display the "MAIN MENU", and then select "OPTION". Press the ENTER button to display the "OPTION" menu, and then select "LAMP RUNTIME". Press and hold the ENTER button for approximately 3 seconds. The "LAMP RUNTIME" will change to "TIME RESET [POWER OFF]". Turn off the power and disconnect the power cord. This will reset the cumulative usage time for the lamp unit to "0".
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.
