    Hi,

    I've already asked some questions about above-mentioned projector. But now I've been in the service-part of the menu.
    In there I have choosen the Self Check option and saw something strange.
    The TEMP1 starts at around 170 and goes down to 132 after 20 minutes. How can a temperature go down?
    This also happens with TEMP2.
    Could someone explain this to me.

    Kind regards ,

    The Cooler King
    ;)

    Hi The Cooler King,

    The Temperature sensors in the AE100 start at 200 and go down from there - Kramer originally sussed this out when he had his opened up for a look some time ago. This means that the higher the number in your temp checks, the cooler the projector is running ! AFAIK, the temp sensors are for the lamp and the optical path - will check Service Manual later. Not sure what the relationship of the values is though.

    Thanx for your quick reply!
    Do you have any idea if 133/132 is an ok-temp for the lamp?

    Regards,

    Hi again,

    Don't really know - IIRC mine are usually 16x and 14x, which would indicate a bit cooler than yours, but I reckon that if you don't run it in a room with the heating on full blast, and keep the filter clean (every 100 hrs is far to short, imo ) you should be OK.

    Thanx again.
    Is there anybody else who could tell me if a temp of 133/132 is ok? Is it also normal that the fan revs it up a bit after a viewing time of +/- 30 min.?

    Hi,

    the fan will speed up (not much imo) if the ambient temperature is a bit high.

    Once I found out about the service menu on the AE100, I was always checking the temp settings probably every 1/2 hr.
    Sad I know, but with the reports on here of premature failure on the Panasonic, I was a bit paranoid.
    Anyway, even with my central heating on full blast it never went below about 125ish and I had no problems.
    Hope this puts your mind a rest
    :)

    amazes me how anyone can sit in a room with the heating on full blast!, when you think of the heat that comes from your cinema equipment, in my cinema room the radiator is turned off all the time.

    the panasonic's are designed to operate at 100 deg. C for the lamp path an around ambient for the light path.

    The temperature is simply (200-Reading) degrees centigrade.

    My AE300 attempts to keep the lamp path at around 96 - 105 (as per readout screen) by alternating the fan speed.
