I just bought a Panasonic PT-AE900U. Followed directions and quickly set up projector, but image only shows in black and white. Is hooked to DVD player. Have tried mutiple movies (all color) and adjusted all color, tint, contrast, etc. controls on projector. Still no luck getting the image to prject in color. Thanks for your suggestions!

after you connect the laptop and the image shifts to the right, press auto adjust on the remote and the image will get OK. If not try resetting the projector settings to factory [not the lamp settings] this should solve the problem if not change the main board
you need to check: the Vga cables if the image shown is that from a computer firstly check if the Panasonic logo comes ok in the beginning if ok then try connecting a laptop directly thru a short patch cable to the computer port of the projector[i am assuming that the projector has been installed to the ceiling] if this works ok , then the projector is fine! you need to figure out the problem with the vga cabling and switchers if any of them are used!
I have the exact same issue with my projector and was wondering if anybody has an idea what the problem/solution could be? Have checked all internal connections, wiring, etc. but nothing is physically wrong with it. Powers on and off with no issues; bulb is working but no light out of the lens. Please help!
Hate to tell you this, but the PC board in the projector is gone. Had the same problem with my 3 year old AE900. Sent it to panasonic and the engineer told me i needed a new board. The PC board along with a new dynamic iris (which i already knew i neeeded) was going to cost £672 (inc labour). It wasn't worth fixing as you can buy a new 200 for about the same price.
If you still have your warranty - then your sorted. Have to say the Panasonic engineers who are based in Cardiff were very helpful when diagnosing and explaining the faults.
may i know now what is the age of your projector. have you done replacing the lamp of the unit before.
Lamp life varies by manufacturer and projector type.
Lamp life also depends on the projector's environment: air flow, clean
air, and also on the level of usage. Check the user's manual or
specification pages for your projector to determine the exact lamp
