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

Phyllis Diller "Phyllis", Amazon
6 December 2009
  • 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 . . . with less than 100 hours of use, the picture would go blank and we would have to turn the power off and turn it back on several times in order for it to finally stay on . . . . it's still that way and Panasonic has not been very easy to deal with . . .

Great for the first 1000 hours

T. McDonald "Nerd", Amazon
14 June 2009
  • 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. I will not buy another Panasonic projector until they can produce a product that doesn't fail after a year.

Same problem

  • 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. well now after reading reviews on here i guess a new bulb won't fix the problem. it saddens me to hear that for the chunk of cash (as little as it may be) still should last me more than the 2 years that i have had it.

Defective, as many others seem to be

Duke, Amazon
25 August 2008
  • 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. If someone could post a nice repair guide for it I'd love to take a look. There is no way I'm sending it to Kansas like the other guy who made a comment.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 July 2008
  • 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). It then shows a red light of power off 2) The projector does not start after this with the remote 3) It has to be powered off from the mains and then restarted 4) Earlier, this used to happen once and now it behaves abnormally...

Bad Iris here

Don, Amazon
2 July 2008
  • 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.

Great picture until it goes black

Ryan, Amazon
23 April 2008
  • 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. If you pull the plug and restart it, it'll come up again. The problem seems to be getting worse, as for a while it would only require 1 restart, and now it has been requiring 2 or 3.

Reliability issues

Seeming Lee "SML = See-ming Lee", Amazon
28 March 2008
  • 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. I think that I bought this less than a year ago. I will update on what happened to it.

BAD Iris BAD iris

Donald Guger "Krik", Amazon
18 January 2008
  • Summary: Read the other reviews. The iris in this thing is bad and Panasonic is ignoring that this is a defective product. They should have all been recalled.
