Press MENU on the remote (with the projector running of course).
In the window that comes up on screen, there are a series of icons on the left side of the screen, and the currently selected one will be highlighted (yellow if memory serves me correctly) scroll down through the icons to the very last one - the Information icon.
The Lamp Timer (lamp hours) will now be showing on the screen, below technical info about the current signal feeding the projector. The 'Lamp Timer' information is at about the centre of the screen :o)
When you use a projector it automatically keeps a timer of how long the lamp has been used for. The message that comes up on screen saying "please replace the lamp" comes up not because it's some how sensing that the lamp is getting old, but because the lamp hours gets to a certain number (usually up around 1500 hours). Because of this when you replace the lamp you need to reset the lamp hours counter, or the projector doesn't even know you've changed it. Every projector does it this way, and they all do it a different way, I googled the model you gave us and found this set of instructions on how to do it, so give it a go.
Reset the lamp counter hours of operation for the projector SONY VPL-CX61 Using the remote commander while the unit is powered up, press "ENTER", "ENTER", "LEFT" and "ENTER" in sequence. A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to enter the factory mode. Press the "UP" key on the remote and the unit is now in service mode. This sequence will add two new groups to the customer setup menu. Press the "MENU" button to view. Whenever the lamp is replaced, the lamp timer should be reset. With the unit in the "factory" mode, press "RESET", "LEFT", "RIGHT" and "ENTER" on the remote commander. Verify the lamp hours have been reset to zero in the service menu.
Hi, You can reset lamp timer of VPL-EX3 by following procedure. Connect power cord in wall socket, standby indicator will lit red. Press following keys on projector remote.. RESET, Left arrow, Right arrow, ENTER Lamp timer will reset. Hope this will help. Thanks.
The bulb is not lighting correctly.
Take out the bulb and check the connectors are not dirty and reinsert.
See if you can see the bulb looks ok, you may be unlucky that the bulb has prematurely failed (hope not)
Try again to start it.

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS2
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter
This is required, to reset the lamp timer.
Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't
when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so
you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from
the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.
To reset the lamp timer: 1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual). 2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER. 3) Timer should now read '0'.
