Question about Panasonic PT-AE900U Multimedia Projector
Hi, my PT-AE 900U has been through use with a wood stove in the living room and shut off several times because of the heat. It also growels now and used to be quite. I think the hours may be up on the projector and tried to find a bulb but looks like the cheapest one was $300. My question is....can i take off the back and try cleaning it because it still works when you turn it on, (for a little while then goes off) so it hasn't gone out completely,so i thought maybe it's dirty. If you think i need to replace the bulb where could i possibly get it cheapest and who do you recommend putting it in, or is this something i may be able to do myself? Thank you so much.
Does it stay on for about 10 minutes, then shut down? If so, that is indcating the lamp is near end of life, according to an hour counter built into the system.
The growling is probably the Dynamic Iris which has had a lot of issues. Mine started making noise after about 1 yr 9 months of ownership/use. Since I bought it with an AmEx card which doubles manufacturer warranty, I was able to send AmEx the quote, and they sent me a check, and I got it fixed.
The cheapest place I found for a replacement lamp is through one of the 2 or 3 sellers on ebay; I bought one last week for $260 delivered. Lamp is very easy to replace, but then follow instructions for resetting the lamp hour counter, or the unit will still think the lamp is near end of life.
