Question about Panasonic PT-AE500U Multimedia Projector
SOURCE: Panasonic PT-LC56E projector
that projector has not been made for some time (7-9 years I believe) so there are probably several thousand hours on the projector, and at about 2500 to 3000 hours your panels start to fail,, sounds like the LCD panels are warping, and you are loosing convergence.
that projector would cost about $500.00 to replace with a newer brighter unit, with a new warranty.
but the "E" means this unit is for europe only, so your prices may vary

your color calibration may be off. see if you can set the red green and blue settings all to "0" and see if that works. may want to refer to your manual and see how you can do that and also see if there is a auto calibration

Optical block is the culprit! replacement is not too difficult.
About the only special tool required is a long phillips screwdriver to
reach the screws securing the block to the front panel of the set.
Then, there are three connectors on the C board which is part of the
block, one connector on the left side of the C board, one fan connector
on the left side and then two connectors on the lamp driver board which
is on the back of the optical block. Two recessed screws hold the block
to the front panel and sometimes there is a third recessed screw to the
left of where the lamp is located. Then the block slides out. Reverse
the procedure to install the block.
Thanks for using FIXYA
