Question about Panasonic PT-D5500U Multimedia Projector
I have a Panasonic PT-D550U projector. We just moved it closer to the screen and in doing so, found that the only input that is working is the remote two in port. As part of the move, we had purchased two different adaptors to convert the signal so we could run it thru cata 6 cabling. One adaptor converts signal to BNC and the other converts to the remote two serial. We know the cabling and the adaptors work, as we hauled a different projector up to the site and everything works with that projector. Can anyone help?

With power available at the projector and the lamp off (projector off) - hold the input button on and press the power button on and hold for 5 secs. This will reset the lamp timer to zero.
I wish they could have stuck this in the operators manual.

It sounds like the projection lamp is beginning to show its age. How many hours of use does the unit have on the bulb? The bulb are typically rated for about 800-1600 hours of use before they go bad. The bluish image on the screen image is a typical tell-tale sign that the bulb is going to need replacing.
Most of your better projection units will have an internal time counter of the bulb life from the time the unit is first used or when a bulb is replaced. Check to see if your unit has this feature, if so it will show you on the screen display what is the total number of hours on the bulb and the estimated remaining hours of life.
Be aware that the replacement bulbs are NOT cheap and usually will cost you several hundred dollars, I have seen bulbs for professional projection units used for large convention/presentations have bulbs costing as much as $500.00 USD.
One other last thing to check is to clean the lens of the unit both inside and outside. To clean the inside, you will need to remove the bulb (be sure to wear a rubber glove as the oils from your skin will cause the lamp to blow, (causes a hot spot)). Then using a cleaning wipe, just as one used for cleaning microscopes or glasses, wipe the lenses. The discoloration might also being caused by dirt and oils on the lenses.
I hope this shed some light on your church's projection problem.
