Question about Hitachi CP-S317 Multimedia Projector
After replacing my lamp with a new bulb, it still won't come on. the indicator lamp is still showing red. what can it be?
SOURCE: Not getting any scrren at all.
is the cooling fan working? - usually if a bulb replacement doesn't solve the problem, and it has been installed correctly, then the safety overheating cutout may be preventing the bulb from working due to a cooling problem - check the fan spins and sound healthy, check all the yents / filters are clear and if you can see the blades, see if they are particularly dirty/dusty. If the fan seems to be fine then the safety cutout itself is likely to be faulty - contact hitachi; http://www.hitachi.co.uk/service/index.jsp And they should be able to give you the details of the nearest service to you. Hope this helps :)

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.

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:
