Hi guys

Firstly you need the remote to reset the lamp timer.

Hold down the left and right scroll buttons on the remote and press menu. That will reset your lamp timer.

    I do not have a remote for the VPL-EX1 either and need to reset the lamp timer.

    On the unit itself there is no 'reset' button, one a joystick/enter button and a menu button.

    I tried pushing both these buttons at once in the hope that it would reset but no luck.

    Does anyone have any idea how to reset the lamp timer on this unit *without* the remote?

    Thanks in advance, Ben

Replaced bulb but still getting "lamp will fail soon replace" warning


When you replace the lamp, you need to reset the lamp counter as well. The procedure for this should be in the owner's manual. This counter is a guide only. Lamps have an expected lifetime and the message indicates that the lamp is nearing that lifetime. Once reset, the counter will again trigger the message once this new lamp reaches that usage time.
