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.

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 Airbala

This Projector does have a filter timer.

Go to the Options Menu and select Filter Time - then reset it.

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)

Hitachi-CP-S335 :

"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.

My Hitachi CP-X201 has a flashing red lamp light on & won't display. I replaced the lamp but it still doesn't work. WHat do I DO?


Hello :

Did you replace the lamp correctly ? If not , then i'll tell you how to do that :

Make sure that your power switch is off and that the power cord is unplugged from the electrical socket.
It is also wise to unplug any other cables and label them in order to restore them in the right way once the lamp is replaced.

2:In order to see the lamp, remove the access handle on the outside cover. You may need to use a screwdriver.

3:Pull out the used lamp and clean the relevant parts using micro fiber products and not paper.
Please note that in some projectors a small inside filter should also be replaced.

4:Insert the new lamp into the projector carefully avoiding touching the glass of the lamp itself.
Touching the lamp will deposit skin oil that will likely damage any new lamp during use.

5:Reassemble the access panel, repluge the cables and power up the projector.

Things You'll Need:
new projector lamp
screwdriver
micro fiber duster
Warning:
avoid touching the bare projector lamp.

I hope this will help .

rate please !

If that wasn't helpful , then contact again please !

LCD projector still not working after lamp change


Sounds like you have a faulty ballast. I recomend changing it. This is your lamps own power supply.

Red power, blinking red temp


Hi,

if the Lamp error and Temperature error lights are flashing red this means that there are two separate errors.

  • A flashing lamp light means the lamp failed to ignite. It could be a lamp driver problem or lamp failure. Replace the lamp to resolve the issue. If the issue is not resolved, then service the projector.
  • A flashing Temperature light signals a fan error. Turn the projector off and allow it to cool down. If the light is still flashing after the projector is turned back on, service the projector.
Goodluck..

No light come on from the projector


Thats the projector telling you that you need to replace the lamp. Lamps usually lasts for about 2000 hours so if you had it for a while you may need to replace it.

www.froogle.com and enter your make and model or go to www.projectorcentral.com and find a few retailers in the US that sells lamps.

good luck

Lamp


I have the CP-X275W that did the same thing. The ballast was bad and I fixed it with a $5 switching regulator. The CP-X327 has the identical ballast.

Details:

The High Intensity Discharge Metal Halide lamp suddenly failed to light up. A new lamp was installed and would not light up either. The fan ran and the lamp LED flashed after a few minutes. Voltage to the ballast module was 368VDC. The ballast did not pulse.

Ballast# PS-226-LS-210 was bad. Hitachi Part# HA01101 has been discontinued and the new part number is HA01102. It was $210USD at Vance Baldwin or $221USD at Part Solver.

The FET series (TR1,5,6,7,8,) seemed good: (drain-source resistance=5Kohm). Bought an identical projector on Ebay to do comparative multimeter measurements. Found resistance differences in IC01 (STRG6153). Swapped good part to bad projector, and it worked. This is a 5-pin Sanken brand switching regulator, US$5 at www.electronix.com. They have the STRTG6153, which is compatible, and may be better. The bad one removed from the circuit measures 15Kohm on pin 3 to pin 5 and the same 15Kohm when the probes are reversed. The good one measures 18Mohm and infinite when the probes are reversed.

If you would like me to fix it for you and clean all your optics, I can do it for $150USD plus $25 return shipping. Contact Chris at chris_goulet@yahoo.ca.

If you have a new lamp for sale I would buy one for $100USD.

Good luck.
