SOURCE: No input detected on projector

it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.

Hi there

In your Menu options there is a subfolder where it either reads lamp or lamp timer.

Scroll down to it and hold down you right or left arrow key on the Projector for a couple of seconds.

Hi there

You cannot hook up a PC & Projector with just a USB cable , you have to use a VGA cable for signal ( picture )

The USB cable is just to use the scroll up or down function from the standard remote controll when doing a presentation.

SOURCE: Resetting the air filter timer

If you do not have a remote here is how to reset the filter time. Use the "Menu" bottun to get the "easy menu" to display. Push the down arrow until you get to "Filter Time," then push and hold the RIGHT arrow to reset the filter time. DO NOT try to reset using the "Reset" option on the easy menu, it will not work.

SOURCE: Resetting the air filter timer

Hiya there, just worked out how to reset the filter timer so for those that need to know here's the solution;
Bring up the menu and go right the way down to "Option" where it shows you the lamp and filter hours.
Next highlight/select the filter timer section and while its on there hold the RESET button on the remote for 5 seconds.. this then pops up with a resert option and hey, 0h again, good as new! :-)
Oh and if you dont have a remote, just hold the right arrow button instead for 5 seconds in place of the reset and follow instructions as above!
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: problem with hitachi cp-RS55 multimedia projector sir

There is a menu item which has both the lamp hour reset and check air flow, etc. You must go into the menu and reset the air flow item. MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THE DUST FILTER!! Heat is the number one killer of projectors and Hitachi's run "hot". I clean my projector once a week--Hey, I'm not rich. lol! Also, excessive heat will cause the lcd panels to fail prematurely and cause lots of other components to do the same.--Rick

Projector does not recognize computer

Hi Becki.

Projectors will usually be identified on your computer as additional or optional screens/monitors. Depending on your setup (laptop/desktop) you may have some alt keyboard buttons with icons for single/multi screens. You will also likely have monitor control panels or non-windows equivalents. In Windows, for instance, right-clicking the desktop will usually bring up a monitor properties page. There you may be able to then select if the projector is a mirror of your desktop, an extension, projector only, or computer only.

if the computer says it sees the monitor, then you'll likely need to toggle whatever sort of menus the projector has to select the input port. Looking through the manual ( ) , suffice to say that there are multiple ways to connect and, with that, plenty of ways to have your cable be hooked up and ignored nonetheless.

Hoping this helps!

I replaced the lamp, but am unable to reset the lamp so that the projector works again. It keeps giving me the message that I need to replace lamp and reset timer. And then it turns off.

1. Switch power ON, and press the TIMER button on the remote controller, or the RESET button
on the control panel, for approximately three seconds. The 'LAMP xxxx hr' message will appear
on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.
2. Press the MENU button on the remote controller, or the RESET button on the control panel,
while the lamp timer is displayed. The 'LAMP xxxx ? 0 CANCEL' message will then
3. Press the and select 0, and wait until the timer display is cleared.

I have a Hitachi LCD projector model No. CP-RX70. When I connect with my laptop (Compaque) and start both then only starting window XP message appears through projector and laptop works normally but again...

The setup is not correct. Check the requirements of the projector, (size, refresh rates etc.) and set the laptop up accordingly.
You will se the XP Screen because the laptop hasn't loaded any drivers yet and the screen is low resolution.
Hope that helps.

Hello Wardens wife

What you want to do is go to the advanced menu, find the filter time and using the remote hold down reset button for 3 seconds or so while the filter time is selected. This will bring up a reset menu and reset the timer.

Toshiba projector

Change it to clone the display. It is probably set to extend your desktop not to clone.
