Re: on the bottom right side of the screen it is sayin...

Had the same problem and drove us nuts. What happens when you put in a new bulb is it starts a expected bulb lifetime hour count down. This does not mean the bulb will burn out but it might be time to have a backup. What you can do is go to the menu and search around to reset the bulb counter as if you put in a new bulb. We did this one year ahgo and project is still working fine. It is, however, mounted to the ceiling so there are no vibradtions during cool down.
Good Luck

The top of the screen is slanted while the sides of screen and bottom are even, causing the right hand side of screen to appear smaller than the left. Anyway to fix this?

Sounds like a "keystone" problem. Your projector needs to be oriented to the screen in an exact manner. Manufacturers provide "keystone" correct to adjust for mis-alignment. If proper orientation is impossible, use the keystone correction of the unit to adjust your edges.

The image from my cp x251 is uneven the top and right side are angled but the bottom and left side are straight and perfect on the screen.

this is a common problem with projection systems this is the reason that most screens are lined with black felt its non-reflective and works great to hide uneven edges also try balancing out the difference with the keystone adjustment

Slanted Border- Projector image is not square

Is the image slanted on the bottom as well?
Make sure the projector's throw is pointed directly at the target ie. screen or wall etc. there's not much else it could be.

Hi there

This would mean that your Projector is still under warranty.

The problem you are describing is a faulty Mainboard - which fortunatelly for you is covered under warranty.

X1a brownish bar on right side of screen

Hi mate.

This is caused by a light tunnel fault, where infocus designed a stupid light tunnel using 4 pieces of mirror and some very tacky glue. What happens is that, over time the glue comes off causeing one of the pieces of mirro or more to collapse giving you the shaded effect on one part of the screen. I myself have had this problem and am now in need of a new light tunnel as mine literally broke, but here is a thread that tells you very efficiently (picture guided) on how to fix this problem. BUT be aware that you need a very good glue and something that will withstand the heat, thats where I went worng lol.

Hope this help, if you need any help just let me know as I have dismantled mine right to the core and put it back together faultlessly many times now so can practically do it with my eyes closed lol.

Panasonic PT-L557U Bulb Life

lamp hours can only be displayed by connecting two test points in side the projector. in normal operation, a message will be displayed on the screen when the lamp hours = 1090. when the lamp reaches 1100 hours, the projector will shut itself off. when you do replace the lamp, be sure to reset the lamp time in the setup menu (this is covered in your manual).

My picture brightness is uneven - there is a persistant bright field on my screen.

I have the exact same problem with my AE700. It a started about the same time, around 2500 hours for me. I lived with it untill I could afford a new bulb which arrived yesterday. The old bulb was still working at a 3603 hours when I installed the new one. But the new bulb didn't fix the problem for me either. I may try to take it apart this weekend and give it a good cleaning. Andy
