Hi, pull off the plastic cover just below the bottom of the screen, remove the phillips screw from the lamp door cover then the screws from the lamp housing and pull straight out, do not touch the glass portion of the lamp with your fingers, the oil from your skin will shorten the life of the lamp,
when installing new lamp push into tunnel just far enough that it touches end of tunnel then snug with screws. DO NOT push in hard on lamp, re-install lamp door and front plastic cover and enjoy,
good luck, video tek

Replaced main bulb in front but lamp button on front of tv is still blinking and tv won't show picture

The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    well normally the first thing to do is to check the lamp, if you already have replaced it. You might just need to re-set your lamp timer. take it back to 0.

    My 60" lcd projection tv wont turn on sometimes and throws a lamp light, and if i watch tv for a while and turn it off it wont turn back on and throws the red lamp light

    The buzzing sound you most likely hear is the ballast trying to fire up the lamp. I would say replace the lamp and yes they can act up at will. If this is the first lamp replacement ever then you are doing good.
