Awesome . . . . until it broke w/less than 100 hrs of use

Summary: This is an incredible machine . . . awesome picture quality . . . when I purchased it two years ago the only reviews were positive . . . we put this in in our cabin so it didn't get much use . . .
Summary: This is my second Panasonic projector. The first one started turning blue after about a year and a half. This one, in addition to having the iris problem which others have already described, has turned yellow in the middle after 1000 hours. I am not a smoker and I clean the filter regularly.
Summary: I didn't buy this unit on amazon but i am having the same problem with the unit shutting down. i came on here to see if maybe i could buy a replacement bulb to fix the problem since in the upper left of my screen it says replace bulb.
Summary: I'll chime in that mine, too, shuts off randomly and won't allow me to do anything useful with it. I thought it was a great thing to play Guitar Hero on, since there was no lag and it had a good picture, but 3 months later and it just shuts off for fun.
Summary: I had purchased this projector12 months back and am facing a problem as briefed below and possible solutions tried but the problem is still not fixed. 1) The projector powers off after 30-60 seconds on starting and goes on stand by (yellow light).
Summary: I am in the same boat as the others - bad iris. This product stinks and unfortunately I was taken. Now I will have to be shipping it around at my expense. This will be the last Panasonic product I buy.
Summary: Same problem that everybody else is reporting. I had one for about 3 months and it started blanking, so I returned it for another. This one has worked for about 6 months and it is now doing the same thing. Basically you turn it on, and within 5 minutes, the picture goes black.
Summary: Like other users, I am experiencing the same problem that the projector shuts itself down after moments of use. My projector has been running for 1300 hrs. I just bought a new lamp thinking that it might be the lamp but nada. It does the same thing. I will be sending this back to Panasonic.
