Panny AE900 problem with horizontal band  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Man, I just got done looking at the flicker menu and there is a horizontal band about an inch wide right in the middle of the screen that flickers and won't go away. This happens mostly on the green flicker menu some on red and barely on blue. Why would it be doing this? I have been in this flicker menu before and it wasn't there. I have about 90 hours on my panasonic AE900. I can't think of any reason this should be there because it wasn't there before. Anybody have any ideas? Could cleaning the filter fix problems like this?


Thanks

My 4th 900 had the same problem. Is the lower 1/2 of the screen a darker shade of color as well?

I called Panasonic and their phone diagnosis was that it was a hardware problem. My guess is that it is some sort of panel voltage issue. My unit also had an unusually loud iris that was to be replaced. I sent it to Heartland Service, they reloaded software and nothing more, and sent it back without correcting either problem. I sent it back to Heartland on the 9th of June. Within about a week of sending it in the second time, Heartland informed me that Panasonic had decided to replace the unit. As of this writing, I have yet to see the replacement, so including the first time the projector was in for service, I've been without a projector for over 2 months. Panasonic claims that they lost the projector after it was sent to them by Heartland (even though they have a record of signing for it), and that is what is causing the delay in sending me a replacement. I've recommended to their rep that their internal SNAFU is their problem, and not mine, so I shouldn't be made to go without a projector until they get their act together. They don't seem too concerned.

Let's just hope that your luck with Panasonic service is better than mine has been!
