Good night everyone,i really need your help.My name is Leonardo and i'm from Brazil.I am so sad that my panasonic PT-AE7000U stopped to work today after 250 hours of use.Last night i saw a movie and turned it off as usual.Today when i was going to watch a movie and turn it on again,it has just started to do some creep noises and there was no light going out of the lenses.I've tried to turn off using the remote control and the control panel in the left side of the projector but didn't work,so i just unplugged it from my monster energy conditioner.When i try to turn on it again,the same noises continues on and on,i don't know what to do.Anyone here had the same problem or knows what could be?I have bought it last year just when it was launched on Visualapex,i know it still have warranty but how i live in Brazil i don't think Panasonic will do something for me here.

Best regards,Leonardo.

I've posted a video on youtube showing the problem.I am speaking in portuguese but you can listen to the audible noise that the projector does on and on and there is no light going out of the lenses.Here is the link:

Sounds like the lamp is failing to strike.

See if there is new software or check your bulb to see if ok. May be a software glitch.

Hi Leonardo
You can try this: take the lamp off (as if you are going to replace it), see if it is visually OK and the put it back on. Sometimes it would fix the glitch.
When you try to ignite the PJ, the top leds what color/s is/are showing? Green? Orange? Red? none?
I have the AE4000 (my 6th Panasonic PJ) and live in Buenos Aires, so I'm in the same boat or worse. Had a few problems (dust blobs, stucked lens, loose polarizer) buy I was able to solve them myself.
Good luck and sorry for the 4 - 3 smile.gif
