Since last 3 months, I was having problems with intermittent "ON" and "OFF" of the bulb and I was speculating on replacing the bulb. I wanted to make sure the bulb is really at the end of it's life. Couple of days ago, the projector completely went dead, while watching a movie. I suspect, I might have pushed the projector back to the wall. Now the power doesn't come "ON" at all.
Is the projector is completel DEAD ? Anyway to salvage it ??

open the bulb assembly and check if the bulb has fused / broken into pieces.if not then the ballast unit that powers the bulb is at fault and needs replacement if the bulb has fused/broken , then probably the bulb that u had replaced 3 months back wasnt genuine!
I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.
So, Shutting down to protect itself. The error light says it needs service, Cycling power makes it work for a few more minutes, then the Panasonic safety circuit shuts it down. Projector shuts down when bulb life gets to the danger zone, and also when its heat sensor says there is a problem. So you have a bulb life issue or you have a dirty projector / fan cooling issue??
I say clean it up with some compressed air when it is cool, then check the # of hours the bulb has on it (in the menu).
Lastly brace yourself, the bulb is gonna hurt you :-$
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.
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!
