Question about Panasonic PT-AE900U Multimedia Projector
The projector is 1 year old. Shuts itself off while running. First time I thought it was the bulb, but following replacement the same problem occurred. Now, on startup, it will shut down three or four times before finally starting up. Once running, it stays on for between 15 minutes and three hours. Projected image is perfect when running. The projector has not been moved, or damaged. The dust filter is cleaned regularly. Mounted upright, fan is on high setting as I live in a warm climate (Brasil), though I am not always certain the fan is actually running. Since qualified repair shop is likely out of the question here, I am hopeful I can fix this myself.
If you cant hear the fan running it isnt. While this unit has a quiet fan believe me you will know if its running during normal operation if you listen for it. This would explain your constant shutdownds.

Check the manual if you have it or on line. The symptom you are describing may be a built in warning that your bulb has reache 2700 hours. I think there is a reset process and then at 3000 it goes out. Spent today reading the manual because I have one and the red lamp light is blinking. I called Panasonic and found out the only place that services these units is in Leawood Kansas USA> The place is called Heartland Services.
