Question about Hitachi CP-X201 Projector
Recently I bought a Hitachi Video projector. I went through the manual where it is written that this product will work with PC/Laptop having OS Windows 98/Windows XP or higher. My laptop has dual OS - WinXP_SE & WinVista. I mostly use Vista, so I first tried the projector with WinVista but it didn't work i,e, I didn't get any display from the Laptop. Then I tried with WinXP_SE and it worked quite satisfactorily. I thought probably I did some mistakes while using vista. So, keeping the same connection setting, I just restarted the Laptop and selected WinVista again but the result is same i,e, no display. Thus, I wanna know whether this projector is non-compatible with vista or there are special settings or selections in Vista for which it didn't work?

it sounds like the A/V reciever does not upconvert the component signal to HDMI. Not many do. The Marantz recievers will (SR6001, SR8001, etc..). Also bear in mind that HDMI cables are finicky and may require amplification over a few meters long.

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.

I have the same problem with a Hitachi CP-X345 Multimedia Projector. My Acer Aspire 3630 Laptop cannot be detected but it works without incident with a Dell Vostro 1500; just plug and play. Desktop settings to second screen doesn’t seem to help.

There is a menu item which has both the lamp hour reset and check air flow, etc. You must go into the menu and reset the air flow item. MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THE DUST FILTER!! Heat is the number one killer of projectors and Hitachi's run "hot". I clean my projector once a week--Hey, I'm not rich. lol! Also, excessive heat will cause the lcd panels to fail prematurely and cause lots of other components to do the same.--Rick

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
micro fiber duster
avoid touching the bare projector lamp.
I hope this will help .
