    No it never comes back on it just keeps retrying. I have unplugged for entire evening and retried to start up and still nothing. From the sound of others on this site it appears it may be a bulb. Lg was not at all helpful.

    Same problem, replaced the bulb, still not starting up. I was able to turn it on after I first replaced the bulb, then went back to powering down, with the white lights scrolling, then the bulb light flashing a few seconds. Every 4-6 minutes it tries to turn itself back on, but is not able to. Power light is solid, then bulb light flashes for a few seconds...repeat.

Does the set eventually start? You could be at the end of the lamps lifespan most sets will have false starts when the lamp is nearly gone and will take alot of trials before they start.

Had this problem recently and you will see that there are two orange flashing lights  the lower one indicates that the lamp is going. Definitely a new lamp and be prepared for a shock if you buy from  Sagem as the lamp with holding box is £400.00. I bought just lamp from good dealer on ebay for £85.00. Set now is fine.

I have the WD 62627 model. the lamp light is on, when i power up the tv, it comes on for like 6 to 10 secs then it turns off. Does this mean I need a new Lamp?

I would say that it probably is a bad capacitor on the power supply board of the tv. What you want to look for is any round cylinders with the tops pushed up at all. The replacements are usually really cheap, it might also be the lamp, but usually when lamps go they go completely while a bad capacitor is known to cause intermittent problems that escalate into a tv only working for about 5-10 seconds.

Panasonic pt ae900 wont fire up

First , start over and unplug it. Wait a few minutes. Turn on AV system that is connected to it but not video or dvd player. With remote, point at is corectly and push power 1 sec or as soon as you see green light come on. Be quick.
If this fails you can wait 4 hours and repeat. OR try only projector with out any feed.

Let me know if this worked.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes

Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!
