I must sell my Z4 now so we can have food.
If it wasn't for food for my wife and three kids, oh yeah and diapers and clothes and birthday parties and gasoline and mortgage payments and...

I might be lucky if I get this one used 3 years from now after I sell a bunch of stuff on ebay and convince my wife that she really really needs 1080p.

I just ordered mine from Amazon.com. Can't wait. I am having my screen installed next week and should be viewing this projector in two weeks.

Re: Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080p HD Projector

I've never owned a projector that does not include auto-off when no signal is present.

I've had my 2000 connected since Saturday morning and it mysteriously turned on some time Saturday night. I didn't realize it was on until early this morning... some 32+ hours unnecessarily burned up. I turned it off this morning, waited and verified it was in fact off. Got home and low and behold it is on again... and had been on for 10 more hours. More lamp hours wasted.

I've checked all of our remotes in the house... checked our garage remotes... nothing is accidentally cutting it on. We live way, way, way back in the boonies... down a dirt road and way off that dirt road. Not close enough to anyone else for something someone else owns to be turning it on.

Hopefully Panasonic technical support will have a miracle answer for me.

Oh boy, I hope this isn't an issue. I should have mine up and running in a couple of weeks. I'll let you know.

Are you losing power? Sometimes, electronics default to on when they get a small power surge.

No sign of us losing power... no clocks flashing to be reset, etc.

Re: Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080p HD Projector

I think my Epson has a setting for what to do when the power fails (last-state, off, on). If the Panny does then set it to off. It could be triggered by a power sag or spike. Country power is notorious for being dirty. The lines stretch for miles and service only a few peple thus are last on the list to be upgraded or repaired. The step down transformer could be as old as you for all you know.

Re: Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080p HD Projector

Why not just turn the power off when not in use? Doesn't truely solve the issue, but does save you money being off standby.

Light changes what it is doing depending if we are looking or not. Considering we only see this as a reflection of the past....what is it really doing now?
