Horizontal Banding Panny AE900U

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone seen any banding problems with this projector. The problem i am having is I occassionaly get a rainbow band with some scenes. What that means is say someone has a green pair of sunglasses on or funny color lipstick, I would get a horizontal band on the same horizontal line across the entire picture and when that scene goes away, the picture is fine and if that flash back to this character, the rainbow comes back. The rainbow line is going from left to right and NOT top to bottom. It doesn't happen a lot. Is this normal or do I have a problem with my projector. Could it be the bulb? I have 3300 hours on it and the replace lamp has not come on yet. I was running eco mode until 2800 then I put it back on Normal mode. Also I clean the filter out regularly now every 100 - 200 hours of use. Should this be serviced? Or is this normal. I have read many reviews on this projector that says it is good on not having banding issues. I am no expert on LCD projectors so I wanted to get you guys' opinion. I want to get this fixed if it is a problem since It is only 6 months old.

Thanks in advance!

I suspect you have your player connected through a component cable!? If this is true it might be the cable lenght/quality. I have seen this before.

Maybe if you gave us some insight in the equipement you have and how it is connected.

This happens if I am watching DVD (Sony 400 Disc changer), yamaha HTR 6090 receiver (i just bought this thing at Best Buy) Not sure of model numbers since I have them upstairs in a closet, or if i am watching Dish Net HD receiver on a HD channel.

I have my projector connected thru HDMI cable. I use most of my sources on 720p for the most part.

In that case there might be something wrong with your LCD panels. I would contact panasonic and ask them about it if i where you.
