When I power on my projector it runs for 10-20 seconds....nothing coming up on the screen. Then the fan starts to really get going and the temp light starts to flash. I don't know what this means, and it hasn't ever done this before. It has been several days since using the unit. I could understand if it were on for a long period of time before the temp light comes on but it comes on almost immediately. Any insight would be awesome!

 

Thanks

You may have a clogged filter, or some obstruction. Vacuum the filter and check the unit for other areas it may be stopping free air flow. Good luck.

Thanks, but have already tried this. After reading the manual I think it has a bad temp sensor. Which is strange because I haven't had but about 7-8 months. I contacted Panasonic support and I'm waiting for their response. You don't have any other ideas do you?

 

Thanks
