Is the projector getting over 35 degrees in temp? Its standard operating environment is rated between 5 and 35 degrees.
but in most of the cases it is a hardware issue and the best solution will be to get it relaced becuase repair is not that sucessull and will cost you a lot.

Press and hold down the power button for few seconds. If nothing happens, you'll need to replace the Lamp. There's no specific with this error, but the solution is replacing the Lamp.

You can also try switching off and unplug all the connection and try again.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

It's a major flag, and could be a bad power supply. Here is a web page with a contact to a good service center, unless you decide to open it up, troubleshoot it, and repair it yourself. Here's the page:

Not familiar with this model, ohm out the bulb with an ohmmeter to make sure it's good, since that could shut it down.
Good luck, and hope this helps...surprised the amber light isn't covered in the manual...you might try to contact their support center.

Does the amber light stay on solid or does it blink? I believe that this might be a safety failure indication. I'll need to check the service manual on this one. In the meantime, try opening and reclosing all of the access doors as well as reseating the lamp. Report your results here.

Thanks,
Dan

My panasonic ae900 projector suddenly stopped getting power. No indication lamp is lit.I checked all the outlets and power cords.Could it be a fuse? if yes, where is it located?


there is 2 fuses, one in the power lead and one inside in the projector close to where the power cord enters the rear of the unit, the one inside is white in colour, remove the fuse and test it with a long nose plyers and test it with a multi meter, then you know if you need a new power supply or software

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

Panasonic pt ae900 wont fire up


First , start over and unplug it. Wait a few minutes. Turn on AV system that is connected to it but not video or dvd player. With remote, point at is corectly and push power 1 sec or as soon as you see green light come on. Be quick.
If this fails you can wait 4 hours and repeat. OR try only projector with out any feed.

Let me know if this worked.
