    Did not help but thanks for trying.

    I tried pressing the reset button (projector must be on) for a few seconds. The system will then recognise that a new lamp has been put in. It seemed to work, half hour since then it is still okay ( no more 'change lamp' message on the screen)

How do you reset the lamp hours counter?” and “How do you get into the service menu?” I don’t know if the service menu is a big secret or not, but since I’m not the first to publish this, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it.
For those inclined to get into service mode on DLP TVs, simply turn your system off, then use the remote and press the following buttons with about .5 to .75 seconds delay between presses: MUTE-1-8-2-POWER.
Once in the service menu, select the bottom item, Options, and from there you can reset the lamp counter.
I’ve never played with any of these settings. I’d strongly caution against any “curiosity tweaks” in there.
I turn on the set, it tries to turn on the lamp, but gives up after several attempts and several seconds. Finally it ends up with three blinking lights
I think the most common cause of this problem is a faulty lamp. If you have replaced the lamp, or otherwise have reason to believe that it is not the lamp, it may be the ballast (the thing that starts up the lamp). You can purchase a ballast at a good price at (approx $140 vs. $180 at

Hope this may help;

Thanks for Jangro site source;

I lost the remote for the system any way to adjust individual volume level for speakers on system

Not unless you see the same buttons on the unit that are on the remote.

You could always buy a new remote. How can you LOSE a remote anyway? Tip all your chairs on end and listen for rattling. Usually loads of money too :>)

The unit does not turn on at all. No lights and no fan turning!!

Can't find a manual, so I can't answer to the point, just in general.
First check your power cord. Never think the apparatus has a defect, before you are sure it is getting power.
When you are sure it must get some power, then you chech for any vital signs. Like a lamp that goes on. Nothing? see if you can find the fuse holder. Should be close to the power entry. Check the fuse. never replace a fuse with a stronger fuse, because they don't go without a reason.

Do not know how to set timer DT300 for Lights


Set present time
Then set ON time for program 1
Set OFF time for program 1
Then set ON time for program 2
Set OFF time for program 2
Most timers will not function if there is a conflict in programming > for example Program 1 says ON at 6 and OFF at 7 and Program 2 says opposite or has overlapping times
When events are set, press SET once > this will put timer in RUN mode

If manual override works, and you set programming correctly, but timer does not carry out instructions, I guess the timer is no good.

Intermatic has 24 hour timers with 2 on-off per day
Intermatic has 7-day digital timers (all digital timers today are 7 day where you select the day that each program works)

Display is faded and remote not working properly

Despite the "hours left" on your projector, the lamp could be nearing the end of its life. Recommendations:
1. Make sure the vents and filters (if applicable) are clear of dust and debris.
2. Make sure the projector is well ventilated. (i.e. no obstructions around the vents)
3. Replace the lamp. They're around $200 on eBay. After replacing, reset the lamp timer (see your manual).
4. After replacing, run the projector in eco-mode if the brightness is acceptable. This will extend the life of your lamp.
5. Always let the projector cool down before unplugging the power or turning the master power switch off.

I don't know what would cause the inability to access all the menu options.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Fisher stereo that has no display and the cd player keeps flashing a M-Error

If this is a multi-disc cd player with a carosel that holds lots of disc's the problem with the cd player is a clutch gear that is very difficult to replace unless you have some experience at changing it.

If you think you can replace the gear reply back and I will give you the part number for the clutch gear.

I would need the model number of the unit to be sure it is the same problem I am so familiar with. It would be very dificult to explain thru text messages how to replace this gear, the entire cd mechinism must be taken apart.

The display problem is probably a lamp that is burned out or the voltage supply to the lamp has a defective part.

Once again I would need the model number of the unit to give you any further details.

A repair center could fix this for around $100 to $150 depending on their rates.

If you have no experience repairing electronics it is advisable that you do not attempt this yourself, you could cause more damage to the unit and the repair would cost even more money.

Please let me know if I can be of any further help.

Philips cdr 606 Recorder. I keep geting a message saying Reading and the Insert disk, after I have inserted a disk.. Tried different disks, also a lens cleaner but keep getting the same message.. can...

The problem of reading, insert disk, is that the mechanism of the player ....the problem is not on the lens its in your player mechanism. I suggest you that, in the mechanism which the lens are moving if u see a roller that is the problem and its already in dirt and dust..u better clean that by using a lighter fluid and then take the old grease change it with new one with good quality..after that it will be okay.

How can I reprogram Nissan pulsar car radio a battery change which has deleted memory? panel shows error message only ERR.

You will need to turn the ignition on (do not start the car) turn on the radio and leave it on for anywhere between 1 - 3hrs untill it prompts you for a code.

There is a internal timer which adds time depending on how many times the code is entered wrongly.

Do not start the car, or turn off the ignition or radio during the 1 - 3 hr period.

Hope this helps.

Thank you

Harmon Kardon unlock error

I have the same problem. All of a sudden no sound through my TV connection (but through the DVD connection the sound was still working). I changed the connection from video 1 to video 2 and got the sound back. It is not a real solution, but a practical one :-)
