Hello, unfortunately the NEC MT1060 - MT1070 series projectors have EEPROM chips built into the lamp housing which counts the hours that the lamp has been used for so the only way to reset the hours is to change the lamp for a new one, i have not yet found a way to reset the chips even by reprogramming them, i'm afraid the only solution is to replace the lamp with an official NEC unit, but this was obviously their intention.
The reset procedure depends upon the make and model of projector which you've failed to mention.
Resetting the counter to zero has no affect at all on the lamp, but it is useful as a means of keeping a log on the hours after the lamp has been replaced. It helps to determine whether a lamp has failed prematurely, but more importantly it enables the user to be able to estimate when the next lamp change will be necessary. It was especially useful back when lamps were extremely expensive; they're not exactly cheap now, but at least the prices are often low enough to justify buying one as a readily available spare.

There is a small cover plate, about 3"X6", that 'just' snaps off. You might have to use a small screw driver to pry it open. The bulb can then be pulled out. Align the new bulb and press it down into the socket. Be careful not to touch the bulb with your hands; use gloves or a lint free cloth.
