Question about Panasonic PT-AE700U Multimedia Projector
What you have there is the projector is preparing for projection, let it prepare for 5 minutes or so, it should turn on by then, it might be a powersupply issue, So you replaced the lamp 2 years ago, so I take this is about 4 or 5 years old? some of the components, possibly capacitors (often first to go out) might need to be replaced.
basically if the unit doesn't turn on, wait 5 minutes, unplug, wait 5 minutes, plug back in and turn on, wait 5 minutes, if its still not turning on repeat once more.
After that I personally would start taking the projector apart, the lamp I suspect is good, take it out first so that you don't accidentally break it, if your going to open it up.
When you get the projector apart, check all the capacitors that they are flat, stay away from the 200-400 volt big one.
How to get the projector apart.. Start by removing all screws in the unit, check for hidden screws under soft objects, labels, possibly covers as well. casing may be hold together with plastic clips that you can open / release with a plastic stick or a case opening tool often used with cell phones. Or a flat head screwdriver if you don't care if the plastic gets a bit banged up.
if any of the caps is not completely FLAT on the top, it would need to be replaced as it might be the issue why its not powering on properly.
you need to carefully inspect the surfaces of the caps carefully as its not always easy to spot a faulty one.
Another option, if you don't wish to DIY is to take it to a repairer. as this is something that won't get solved by pushing buttons.
