Panasonic PT L501U Projector

The Lamp is fine... I have 2 new ones used both... would the hour meter have anything to do with it? FYI the "LAMP" led is lit as well.... Any way to positively know its the ballast? Before spending all that money???


Also, I took to top cover off the projector, to see if there was anything i could see as an issue, there is a little led light by the fan that CANT BEE SEEN when the cover is on, that is red and is on... any thoughts???

Thanks again....

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.

How to do lamp reset on panasonic pt-lb50u projector.


To reset the lamp hours, turn on the projector. Then press Menu and use the Up/Down arrows to highlight Options. Press Enter then highlight Lamp Runtime. Press and hold Enter for 3+ seconds until the Lamp Runtime screen is displays. Press the Power button (any other button cancels the reset). When the Power button LED turns red, unplug the power cord to the projector. You can either use the remote or the controls on the projector. Reconnect the power cord after a few minutes.

The reset instructions are on page 62 of the user manual. The manual is available from Panasonic here: https://support.panasonic.co.nz/docstore/PT-LB50U%20Operating%20Instructions.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Can't reset lamp timer after lamp replacement on Panasonic PT-AE40000


I have a Panasonic PT-AE4000U and could not reset the timer after replacing the bulb with a, non-Panasonic branded bulb. Calls to tech support were not very helpful. It was another bad customer service experience. Through troubleshooting it myself, I discovered the solution was simply to unplug EVERYTHING (serial cable, hdmi cables, etc.) from the device, power it off and back on. Follow the procedure in the manual, the timer immediately reset!!

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.

Panasonic PT-AE900U Projector Lamp stops working (intermittent)


since it has worked 1200 hours or even more since u have been resetting the counter! just change the lamp, resetting the counter does not make the lamp work or not work , it is only a reminder for the user to change the bulb when it should be & that u have some balance hours left to procure a new lamp!
if the brightness is adequate, then it is a ballast problem & not lamp problem!
buy a new lamp as u will anyway need to , fit it & it may solve ur problems permanently!

Panasonic PT-AE900u no image


may i know now what is the age of your projector. have you done replacing the lamp of the unit before.

Lamp life varies by manufacturer and projector type. Lamp life also depends on the projector's environment: air flow, clean air, and also on the level of usage. Check the user's manual or specification pages for your projector to determine the exact lamp life.

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.

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).
