Question about Hitachi CP-S225 Multimedia Projector
Hello i bought a new lamp for this projector and when i turn it on the lamp and power indicator lights come on flashing red. im not quite sure what is the problem. thanks

If both lights are flashing orange, that means that the bulb needs to be replaced and the filter needs to be cleaned. Make sure you reset the counters for both after you replace them.

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.

Hitachi CP- RX60:
Press the RESET button on the remote control or the right-pointing triangle button on the projector for about 3 seconds. Once you see the RESET dialog, use the upward-pointing triangle to RESET. I can't see what you are or are not doing...so please see page 39 of the user's manual (download found below)
"The lamp time is the time counted after the last resetting. It is shown in the OPTION menu as the use time of the lamp. Pressing the RESET button on the remote control for about 3 seconds displays a dialog. To reset the lamp time, select the RESET option using the (triangle) button."

Look on p.40 of the manual. It discusses this problem with the possibility that the lamp is not properly fitted into the unit. If adjusting the placement of the lamp doesn't work (I would actually take the lamp out and put it back in,) it could have an issue with a dirty air filter or overheating due to debris caught in the air cooling fan.
Here's the manual online:

There is a small tab on the lamp cover that should press into an "L" shaped slot on the lamp housing. This tab may break off, and not press into slot far enough to make the lamp dectection switch click. When the lamp heats up, the plastics expand and the detection switch opens. The projector quits as if no lamp is installed. The fix is to make an extension for the tab. I cut a small piece of sheet metal and crazy-glued it to what was left of the plasic tab.
