Question about Panasonic PT-AE2000U Projector

Open Question

I have a Panasonic PT-AE2000U. It will power up via the main breaker but then go straight into standby mode (red light). When I hit the power button the power light turns green and the screen turns on, but after a few seconds everything reverts back to standby (red light again). I have cleaned the unit inside thouroughly, cleaned the filter and replaced the bulb (I don't think it needed it, but I figured it couldn't hurt) and it works when I reseat everything but then after a few days the problem comes back. When the projecter works the fan sounds like a freight train, but when it starts its "standby mode" the fan makes no noise at all... Could a bad fan be the source of all this (and if so can I replace just the fan)? If it's not the fan, what else could it be?

SOURCE: Panasonic AE100U Keeps shutting off

I have exactly the same problem. I was told by Panasonic sales rep that a shipment of AE1000U projectors came in that have a faulty board (he thought optical board but wasn't sure). Only solution is to replace the faulty board.

I just repaired mine with some oil for the iris assembly.
The problem is the iris is either slow to respond or doesn't respond to it's controller. The cam should snap back to it's resting point and move freely. It needs to be re-oiled. Mine would move but sluggishly like it was sticky. There are TWO pivot shafts to oil. One on top and one on the bottom. The bottom one can be accessed by removing the bulb. You can see the bottom cam while the bulb is installed. This is a good point to test the iris movement at.
You need to have some mechanical ability. If you don't think you can do this then don't.
First remove the bottom bulb cover. Now get a flashlight. Look in the area that bulb is pointing towards. In the left corner of the side towards the front of the unit where the lens is, you will see a brownish cam. It has a spring around it.
Take a small screwdriver and move it to it's extent like a wheel. Let go and it should quickly return to where it was. It virtually snaps back to it's resting point. Do this several times. 5-6 If at any time it returns sluggishly then it needs to be oiled. 3 in 1 oil works great.
This takes time. I used a small jewelers screw driver to deliver the oil. As you oil it move the cam back and forth to work the oil to the shaft. Standing the unit on edge after you put the oil in the gap helps the oil get to the shaft.
If it now starts to snap back put the bulb cover back on and try the unit. If after 5-6 movements it still does not snap back each time then the actual motor shaft needs to be oiled as well.

Take the top off. There are several screws and one on the back. All have an arrow marking them. The cover is caught around the lens assembly. You have to be a little bit violent to get it off. After the cover is removed, you have to really look for the upper iris cam. It is under the large multi pin connector with brown wires on the main main display board. There is a small perforated metal cover under this connector.
After bending the cover up you will see the linear motor that drives the iris. There is a small flex cable going to it. You need to oil it's shaft. Use the same procedure to oil it as the cam under the unit. After oiling this shaft the iris should now snap back to rest every time. That's it.

I have the same problem. It seems we have to reset the counter. This reset must be done via the beamer itself and not via remote control, since lamp is not working...

My power light turns yellow instead of red i have to hold thepower botten to make it red


With the Wii system, when you hit the power button, it goes into Standby mode. That is the yellow light. In standby mode, the system draws a little bit of power, and it will go into a ready to play state faster than when Off. Holding the power button FULLY powers off the Wii system, and that will give you the red light. Hope this helps!

Panasonic PT-AE2000U All three HDMI Ports stoped working. I have tried different HDMI cable and a three different HDMI Feeds. I can get a picture using the red green blue component cable. Any ideas?


WOW. I just experienced the same thing. None of my HDMI ports are working, though component is fine. I've had my unit since November 2007 and had no problems until this. I think the HDMI board has gone bad and will require replacing.

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

Lamp indicator flashes red 3 times every 5 secs.


Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
