    My panasonic projector goes into standby after 30-60 seconds (there is an orange light and then a red light). The projector has to be powered off and restareted (remote does not work). The projector then works fine for as many hours (even upto 12 hours). Lamp life used is only 10% and filter is also clean. The problem has now elevated gradually over a period of time wherein the projector has to be powered off 4 times.

Hi there

Have you replaced the lamp ?

If you haven't - take out the lamp and chech for any irregularity on it - i.e. - discolouration , vein like looking marks ( black or white ) and also if the shape of the shaft is off.

If there is no visible damage it might be a faulty Ballast ( lamp's powersupply ) - especially if you cannot get it out of stanby once it has shut down.

After a few seconds the lamp light began to blink red, its a panasonic pt-lb10svu, show no pic at all has a new lamp

Hi, Replacing the lamp in a Sharp LCD projector requires the lamp indicator to be reset. When the lamp needs to be replaced, the indicator becomes red. Resetting the counter for the lamp hours to zero will also reset the indicator to green.
  • Attach the power cord to the projector and plug it into an electrical outlet.
  • Step 2Locate the buttons on the top of the projector and simultaneously hold down the "Enter", "Menu" and "down arrow" buttons, then press the "Standby/On" button.
  • Step 3Continue holding all four buttons depressed until the lamp indicator light begins flashing green.The counter is now reset. Zero hours will now be displayed on the screen.

    Problems with Projector Panasonic PT-L501XU after change the lamp

    was this bought new or second hand?
    There is a "Lamp Time" setting that can be accessd using your remote control, check this setting.
    Look on page 40 and after that of your manual about ambient temperature bulb failure.

    By powering off or hittign the reset button the bulb should stay on IF the projector is gettign a signal from a device to show an image. If the projector is not hooked up to a device, laptop, TV, etc. the bulb may turn off to save hours of operation.

    PT-LC50E LCD Projector

    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.

    Right , if the indicator light goes from Green to Orange when shutting down , it will be the Powersupply that is giving problems and not the Ballast.

    Ok , so the lamp is out then.

    Before spending the money on a new Ballast.

    Switch on the Projector while the top cover is off and check if all your fans are running.

    The red light you see glowing on the Mainboard is quite normal.

    Panasonic PT-L557U Bulb Life

    lamp hours can only be displayed by connecting two test points in side the projector. in normal operation, a message will be displayed on the screen when the lamp hours = 1090. when the lamp reaches 1100 hours, the projector will shut itself off. when you do replace the lamp, be sure to reset the lamp time in the setup menu (this is covered in your manual).
