Question about Panasonic PT-AE900U Multimedia Projector

No image, lamp light blincking red

I turn on my projector but don't get any image at all. Not even the blue Panasonic screen. Nothing lights up inside the lense either. The lamp light on top of projector starts to blink red after a couple minutes. Lamp run-time is approximatelly 400 hours. It has been raining real hard with severe thunderstorms. Couple lightning bolts seen to have hit VERY close to our house. Could a lightning bolt have burned out the lamp or could it be another technical problem?

    I just experienced the same problem with my PT-AE900u last night. I turn on my projector but don't get any image at all. Nothing lights up inside the lense either. The lamp light on top of projector starts to blink red after a couple minutes. This was a cold start, that is I had not used it for several days. My lamp run-time is approximatelly 800 hours. After several attempts It finally came on. Is this a sign that I need a new bulb? I read the manual, and it said the bulb should be good up to 3000 hours of use. What gives?

I have a 3 yr old AE900U dont know exact hours but prob at least 2000 hrs. about every other start up, the projector would flash little box; (replace lamp now). now a month later lamp wont come on. So this is prob the normal way a lamp will die. anything else might be another problem.

I have a panasonic pt-ae 900u projector and it is used in a room where we have a wood stove and i am sure it is dirty inside. It got hot and went off several times. It will run for a few minutes now and then goes off. I think the time on the bulb has expired but think maybe it could be dirty. Is there a way to clean it myself or do i need to hire someone? Also, where do i get a bulb that isn't 300 dollars. I can't afford that. Thank you so much. nellie

5C00 Error Code as well as yellow and green alternating lights


To fix this error is much easier than it looks. Unplug the printer power. Move the ink cartridge cradle to the left. Over to the right you will see a small pad about 1cm square. This pad and the area around should be covered with ink. Get a cloth and press down on this pad - it's not fixed so should come away with the cloth, otherwise use tweezers gently. Squeeze the pad several times between your thumb and forefinger while inside the microfibre cloth to remove ink build up. Then when not much ink comes out on the cloth, clean the area in the printer around the pad so that looks free from ink too. Then position the pad back in place, move the cradle back into position, plug in and switch on - should work fine now.

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
