I was looking at the Sony HW40ES as a likely viable projector for me, but it doesn't offer lens shift. I would like to do a 2.35:1 set-up on a 140" wide screen. Would owners of the Panasonic 8000 recommend the unit for a 140" wide 2.35:1 curved screen over the Sony? It looks like I would need an anamorphic lens with the Sony.

Does anybody know a place where I can find a basic manual calibration of the 8000? I seen one in here and I cannot find it now. I went back to pg107 and did not see it. I had set my PJ up but then I unplugged it for a week to do some work and all the settings are gone. Thanks to anyone that knows where I can find some to copy off of.

With projectors projectors you can not use some one else calibration. To many variables like distance from screen light controls type and gain of screen and most important size of screen. So unless some one has your exact same type and size screen mounted the same through distance it will not work

Good point Bill, I never thought about that. I am so use to trying other peoples calibrations on TV's that it did not hit me. I will be honest, It looks great out of the box. I was watching Xmen today and I blacked out the room and the colors were just excellent. I have been amazed at the detail like how you can see facial pores and skin flesh tones, even sweat. The skin color on Ravens blue skin on Xmen was incredible. I can honestly say I have no desire to upgrade projectors for quite along time. I am happy that I went with the brilliant white on my Carada, even though I have some light coming in. Has worked out really well in my room. I guess I am going to pick up a calibration disc one of these days.

Other option is to use the 12v trigger to turn PJ on and off. I'm using it with my Denon AVR and it works pretty well.

so you have to run a triger wire to the PJ with mini conector? I have some cat 5 run up there would that work? What happens then does PJ turn of with Amp? I have Denon

Best option is this Panny PT-AE4000U over RS232


I assume it will still work with the 8000. Discrete control of many functions that you cant do with the Panny remote, and one click power down it one of them. The best is calling lense memory with one click, no menus.

Yes, I did run a 50ft 3.5 mm stereo wire from my Denon (it has 2 12v triggers) to the PJ and I'm also using an Emotiva trigger expansion module on the 2nd 12V trigger at the Denon for my amps.

So, I just need to turn on and off the AVR and all other units are turning on and off accordingly.

Monoprice 3.5mm Stereo


Emotiva ET-3

I have setup my AE8000U last night, screen is 2.35:1 125 in silver ticket screen, I cannot adjust the picture to fit the screen for both 16:9 and 2.35:1. Either one works good, If I set the zoom and focus and lensshift for 2.35:1 , it works with 2.35:1 movies well, but when I try to zoom again for 16:9 I am not able to get the picture fit into the screen. Please help me if I am missing something. I spent like 6 hours yesterday and could not achieve it. Please help

couple of questions then some suggetions...

where is the lens of the PJ in relation to the top of the screen? it should be equal to or below the top of the screen

Have you adjusted for a 1.85 image first (using actual 1.85 material)? This needs to be done first using the zoom feature to fill top and bottom and the vertical Shift knob located behind the plastic door next to the lens.

once you have the 1.85 image set save it under a memory slot...then put in a 2.35 content film...now zoom to get the top and bottom of the image to fit the screen...once that is set use the knob adjustment to ONLY move the image so the sides are lined up properly...once this is set save this image in another memory slot. bam your done!

if your lens isnt at or below the top of the screen the memory feature wont work properly...trust me I tried haha

Thank you Brian, I think lens is above the top of the screen, but I will check and follow your recommendations and see if that helps.

I usually do not get over attached to any projector this Panasonic 8000 is a beast, I am on my 4th projector I've had Sony, Sanyo, Panasonics. this has by far the best picture. Is there a newer projector out there? I like to keep my projectors relatively fresh. I like to sell while they r worth someting still.

No, the 8000 was the successor to the 7000. I have seen nothing on anything new from Panasonic, not even a 4K pj. As you said, the picture is great, I have no desire to get anything new. I guess if 4K ever takes off It will be time to look, but until then I am happy with the 8000.

Hi All,

I have a problem with this projector. Projection is turning off after 5 mins of use. and TEMP lamp is blinking continuously and it's going to standby mode after some time. I unplug the projector and then when I am trying to turn on, same TEMP lamp is blinking and it's not turning on.

It's again turning on after 1 hr and then turning off after 5 mins.

Can any one throw some light on me?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your suggestion. But I did clean the filter. before cleaning, it used to clean occasionally. Once I cleaned the filter, it started happening continuously.

Can you please share me self check menu of your projector?

Please share by cropping serial number in it.

Mike,

Click power button on your remote.
You get the popup asking power off or cancel.

When the cancel option is high lighted, now select up,down,up,down buttons in the remote and click ok.

You will land on extended menu. There you see self check.

Dear community,

I recently have an issue with the projectors fan starting to make allot of noise during operation. After a couple of minutes (approx. five minutes) after startup it seems like the fanspeed is set to 100%. The projector is attached to the ceiling and never suffered this behaviour before.

Is there a way to monitor the internal temperature to see if that might be the cause of the fan noise?
Is it possible to easily access and clean the projectors dust filters? found out how to do this in the manual
Any other possible explanations?

The projector has around 1000 burn hours
