Question about Panasonic PT-AE700U Multimedia Projector

My Panny AE700U shut down & won't restart

My Panasonic AE700U would not turn on this AM. I was out of town and my daughter was watching movies but did not say that she experienced any problems with the projector. I utned the main power switch off and came back after about 15 minutes. At this time the unit powered up fine. The picture was bright and clear for about 15 minutes and then the projector started to power down to stand by mode (without the stand by message), I could hear the iris clicking. The unit powered back up and then down again before finally shutting off. No warning lights came on. I checked the air filter and its clean. I was able to power up the unit after shutting the main power switch off and I had waited about 15 minutes. The projector ran for 5 minutes and shut down. I cant get the projector to start up again. I replaced the bulb last year and also replaced the air filter at that time. No indication of bulb failure. Any ideas??? Thank you.

    I have been having the same problem with my unit shutting down irratically. I only have about 1400 hours on the lamp. Unit is about 3 years old and had been working great. I had it working fine again for about two days, then it started shutting off and on again. I seemed to get the most problems when I hooked up the screen trigger again. I see a posting that it is a faulty main board. How did you get it fixed and how much did it cost?

HI there

This is a faulty Mainboard that will need either repair or replacement.

If a Projector starts playing on and off tricks I have found it to be 99% of the time a faulty Mainboard.

Blue Haze on the left and various other places on screen

it's the polarizing filter on one of the lcds. they tend to fry due to excessive heat. clean the dust out of the projector so it can cool down properly. but you will need to replace that filter. it is fairly easy, but remember which plugs go where. however, many companies won't sell parts for or replace components of the optical engine or the prism assembly. if they don't, it's going to cost a bit. check the panasonic website for the closest authorized service center.

ake a try-- the below procedure will reset your player and make your player region free......

The region free hack procedure:

* Login to the region free hack account (using Harmony client software)
* Update your remote (this will wipe out existing setup)
* Select the only device on the remote (the Panny device with the hack)
* Switch your player on without a disc in the tray
* Make sure the Panny is in DVD mode (not TV or Blu-ray - this is a DVD player hack!)
* Point the remote at the player and press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0 in that order
* The player should then reset and be region free, if not, try the process again.

may be a heat problem: check the psu unit for components getting too hot...use a laser thermometer and keep you fingers away from the psu ! other possible problem may be a bad capacitor or the thermal protection before the psu..but this would be a very uncommon problem.
