Question about Sony LMP-H150 Projector Lamp Projector Lamp for VPLHS3

Open Question

Lamp replaced, and warning to replace lamp message still shows

Sony projector, running through DVD / VHS player Lamp replaced (correct lamp type), and the instruction in the manual states that the user should press the "reset" left arrow, right arrow, and "enter" buttons for less than 5 seconds for each. This has been done correctly, but the warning message to replace the lamp still comes up when the projector is turned on. Pressing any button on the remote control will make the warning message go away, but it returns the next time the projector is turned on. Also, there is a bright blue tinge to the right hand portion of the image projected, which appeared prior to the lamp being replaced. This blue tinge remains even when I change the type of screen type to the likes of dynamic, or cinema, but if I change it to a shorter screen, the blue tinge stays in the same place and in the background.

I don't think it's your bulb - sounds/looks like the known "roadmap" problem, they say they will cover it. Check this out: Now if they'd just cover the known "blue blob" problem I'm having...

SOURCE: KF 42WE610 turns on for two seconds, then goes black

no, had the same problem. Its the lamp ballast also called the lamp power block. It supplies power to the lamp, any how some repair shop wanted $450 to fix it, so i ordered the part from sony, part #146879816 ($116.25), trust me this is the part I double checked with many different places. Any how fixed it my self took about 15 minutes, just take the back cover off and the part is right there just kind of follow the screws and the 3 wires, super easy job, I suggest you replace the bulb at the same time, dont by a cheap bulb just get it from sony

Some of the ICs on the power supply block are damaged. This can possibly due to high voltage or defective IC. What you can do now is to get a new PS block. If you can get me the part number i can help you find it..

SOURCE: Red light blinking 3 times on Sony xl2400 lamp replacement

I had same issue. Green power light comes on briefly, fan starts to power up, then it dies and power light starts flashing red 3 times over and over. Above solution is correct. You have to play with it until it seats just right. After pushing unit in firmly so it fits snug, try lifting unit up ever so slightly. There is just a slight amount of play, but make sure it is fully seated. Try moving it up or down a hair, and keep retrying. Ridiculous, I know, but better than sending it back to get another one that does the same thing. After about 10 tries, it worked. I think the replacements may be more sensitive. During my trial and error, I popped the old one back in (since it wasn't completely burned out) and it fired right up the first time.

Just replaced vt700 lamp. projector still indicating faulty lamp. i also reset the lamp hrs by pressing help on remote. can any one help thanks

Try the old lamp again and reset again and see if that works. When you originally replaced the lamp did it give you a warning that replacement was required or did it just stop? I haven't worked on that model before but you may require a new Ballast (power supply ) that runs the lamp (technician job usually)

Good sound, no picture, green standy light flashing

Replace the lamp-mine just went out also and sony told that I just need to replace the lamp---after a while the lamp indicator light will turn on red if and blink if this is your problem....also note to make sure it is your lamp unplug your tv from the wall or surge protector for atleast a minute or 2 and then replug it back in and see if the lamp light blinks red? If it doesn't then you got something else wrong. I hope this helps...if you need further assistance contact sony online via chat at and they'll help you fix the problem in no time. Take care

Short life for a Sony LMP-150

The bulb replacement message is not triggered by bulb condition. It comes on after a given number of hours use. If you did not re-set the hours counter to zero when you replaced the lamp then you will get this message prematurely. Don't replace the lamp until it ceases to work correctly - colour balance wrong it it simply does not light.
