Sounds like bad cables, or wrong setting on projector you may have it set to compoent instead of composite,, you don't tell how you are hooking it up. (what type of cables you are using)

Projector Image Cut Off, Native Resolution Not Recognized by PC

after you connect the laptop and the image shifts to the right, press auto adjust on the remote and the image will get OK.
If not try resetting the projector settings to factory [not the lamp settings]
this should solve the problem
if not change the main board

My Panasonic PT LC76U has horizontal pixelated lines. See image at this link

you need to check:
the Vga cables if the image shown is that from a computer
firstly check if the Panasonic logo comes ok in the beginning
if ok then try connecting a laptop directly thru a short patch cable to the computer port of the projector[i am assuming that the projector has been installed to the ceiling]
if this works ok , then the projector is fine!
you need to figure out the problem with the vga cabling and switchers if any of them are used!

I have a Panasonic pt-ae900u projector that doesn't project an image. The lamp fires up but no light makes it past the LCD panels, no video or menu graphics, would be appreciated

I have the exact same issue with my projector and was wondering if anybody has an idea what the problem/solution could be? Have checked all internal connections, wiring, etc. but nothing is physically wrong with it. Powers on and off with no issues; bulb is working but no light out of the lens. Please help!

Panasonic PT-AE900u no image

may i know now what is the age of your projector. have you done replacing the lamp of the unit before.

Lamp life varies by manufacturer and projector type. Lamp life also depends on the projector's environment: air flow, clean air, and also on the level of usage. Check the user's manual or specification pages for your projector to determine the exact lamp life.
