Panasonic AE500 - who knows its internal cables' layout?


Standard Member
Hi all:
I'm still using the Ae500 projector and recently read a thread and follows steps of the thread to clean the LCD panel.
After the cleaning, I put all components back into the projector and finding
one socket is unplugged.

Though the projector now works well and the "green fog" disappear after cleaning. I afraid the disconnected socket may cause problem in future.

I guess the cable for the unplugged socket is missing or hiding below components of projector. Can any one give some comments on this situation?
Thanks a lot,

If it's working fine and all cooling fans are running then don't worry about it it's probably unused. It won't cause any problems in the future.

If my car is any indication, the manufacturers find it cheaper to use a wiring loom suitable for all models, resulting in unused plugs on some.

Perhaps Panasonic adopt the same philosophy?
