Panasonic PTAE2000U projector keeps shutting down

Hello,

I have a Panasonic PTAE2000u from 2007 that has worked perfectly until now. In the last few days, 2-3 minutes after powering it on, the green light on the projector turns yellow and it shuts off. Also, I've noticed that the image on the screen goes a little dark then return to normal (all within a few seconds) before the projector turns off. The lamp and fan lights never illuminate.

The lamp has about 750 hours on it. It is the second lamp that has been in the unit. It was an authentic panasonic lamp.

I checked the filter. It looks clean.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot.

This sounds like you forgot to reset the lamp timer when you changed lamps. If you did then try resetting again otherwise I have no clue.
