According to the manual, you need access to the RESET button, the left and right arrows and the ENTER button to clear the counter. Press the following in order for less than 5 seconds each:

RESET
Left Arror
Right Arrow
ENTER

The above sequence should clear the counter.

To reset the lamp timer:
1) With the projector plugged in and turned off, press the 'ON/STANDBY' button to put the projector in 'STANDBY' mode. NOTE: You have to press the button on the projector itself, you cannot use the remote for this step (this is not clear in manual).
2) Now, using the remote, press the following keys in order: RESET, <--, -->, ENTER.
3) Timer should now read '0'.

SOURCE: sony vpl cx5 no voltage to lamp

I downloaded the schematics and drawings for $US9.00 and found what I thought may have been a thermistor turned out to be a fuse. Obtained one from Sony spares and it is now OK. If it is possible would you guys know the value of the fuse [amp/milliamps??] If you are familar it is fuse 2P connected to C board, it looks like a small lump of plastic or diode block. The cost of the fuse is outragous from Sony. I hope I do not have to replace it again. However, if I do I would love the valua and I could see if I could get one from Radio shack or someplace similar. If I was not retired I would buy one and put it on a step tranny and watch the ampmeter for the blow current. But, thats life when you decide to retire. I believe the voltage value is 3volts??

Would appreciate any feed-back on the value of the fuse.

And I hope this may help others

Thanks and Good-day

The projector's lamp cover might not be securly on or you might need a new one, or the projector has blown a fuse that can be replaced other wise it could be your projector but be sure to contact your sony dealer first.

I replaces my bulb in the sony vpl-hs10 and it still will not turn on after I reset it what do I do now? the lamp light is still lite it turns on but the lamp does not project anything


These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS3.
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter

This is required, to reset the lamp timer.

Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.
