    My projector has little over a thousand hours of it now and have noticed when watching a film the brightness fluctuates up and down so guess new bulb needed

    Anyone know of a reputable and value for money supplier.

    The part number for an original bulb is ET-LAE1000 and you can buy direct from Panasonic UK here: https://www.pas-europe.com/ for £216 + £4.32 postage.

    Considering the cost price on one of those is £180+VAT to a dealer (I know because I just logged in to my spares ordering system) Looks like Panasonic are just offering these out now at trade price.

    If you use that part number in google, you will get results for copycat bulbs.

    Good luck :smashin:

    Never had any experience with any 3rd party bulbs, so can't help there.

    I have no idea what you're saying in that last sentence, are you using predictive text on a mobile?

    Sorry. Yes

    Was just thinking that I imagine that the price of a new bulb is probably now a sizeable chunk twds a brand new projector which would give my gaining on a run for its money.

    Bulb fluctuation could be down to using eco mode from new, try using normal for 10-15 hours.

    Cheers

    It's doing it in normal also now. Mind only run it on normal for couple hours or so so will keep,it like that for few more movies then try revert back.

    Might take more than a few hours: My old AE2000 did this and it took 30 hours plus IIRC (I usually ran it in eco so 30 hours in normal to clear it).

    Another thing to check is that it is the lamp and not the iris playing up: Put up a full field test pattern maybe 75% white and see if this flickers. If a static pattern flickers then it is likely to be the lamp (or it's power supply). If it only flickers during normal film viewing it could just be the iris. Though I do think the lamp is more likely it's easy enough to check otherwise that's £200 towards a newer projector if it's not the lamp.

    I purchased a new lamp direct from Panasonic for my ptae2000 and I was surprised how dull my old lamp was compared to the new one.
    Be aware though that when mine arrived it came with a receipt but no info reguarding warranty .

    Have you tried reseating the lamp?

    This is also so true. It's amazing what you get used to.

    I've seem it so many times.

    Regards, Shane.
