Question about Televison & Video
Dad's TV, worked fantastically until one day turned off,...tried to restart then displayed "lamp and overheat" warning lights on front - bottom right hand side panel....Dad replaced bulb and still not turning on and still displaying same fault lights....I think...reset??!!!!...somewhere,...have resolved to manual but still no result or answer....should be simple,...TV is immaculate condition and never moved, in aircon, cool, dust and smoke free environment.
I admit not having seen this model but if a DLP with lamp it has fans.
A common issue with sets is while house/home may be spotless the fans also intake air and ANY dust in the air.
I have seen many where the airflow inside the set gets blocked with dust on the fans and paths themselves----many when taken outside and blown clean with compressed air look like a dust storm and suddenly the set now works.
Even a moderate amount on fan blades will cause the fans to run a little slow which will trigger the overheat isssue especially on the Lamp fan which cools that part.
I know people who live in spotless homes do not like to hear this but it is rather common.
A reset if it exists for this set will NOT help this kind of issue---I see you have posted this issue in several places on the internet so consider that not all issues can be corrected with a reset and it is possible I am correct here----no major parts are required to prove or disprove this---in fact nothing to lose by trying it---as proof I offer a link to another set with a somewhat similar problem whose answer has helped several other people---I keep track:

It could be the a problem with the lamp ballist circuit, or just a bad lamp socket, or simply a bad lamp. The only way to tell is to call out a servicer as that would be alot less expensive then to get a new lamp and then that not be the problem. These problems can be a little hair pulling at times, thats why i have no hair left!! LOL Good Luck

This proceedure should work for your model to reset the lamp meter.
Lamp Time Reset Procedure:
Be sure to reset the Lamp time to "0" after replacing the new
1. Plug in the AC Cord, and turn on the power by pressing the
2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button on the unit and
the SPLIT key on the remote together for over 5 seconds
in power on condition.
When the reset is finished, the display will indicate that the lamp hrs have been reset to 0 and the LAMP LED goes out.

Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.
