    Replaced the lamp following all the procedures but can't complete the last step of Lamp timer reset since the projector does not turn on for me to be able to access the menu. The projector goes through fan cycles and ends up with blinking amber on/off light as well as a red lamp light.

Optoma hd65 has a red light. Only had it for 5 months. How do you fix?

The red indicator light usually comes on when something needs attention. Most often it has to do with the lamp timer or the filter timer. The projector keeps track of how long it's been since you've changed the bulb or cleaned the filter(s). You can reset these timers in the menu. Be sure to clean the filter before you reset the timer

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.

    Bulb is most likely OK. Original bulb in Sony TV is Philips, label on bulb usually says Philips. Sony don't make bulbs. Sony Cost is usually 1.5 times other sources. Many shopping cart operations sell condemned, reject or poor quality electronic service items because cost of return and fooling with them is excessive. This is obvious and widespread with convergence ICs and other parts.

    Lamp timer needs reset. This is usually an automatic function. TV detects Increased lamp current from previous failed bulb or weak bulb condition and resets automatically. TV must be unplugged for lamp replacement for this to work. Occasionally it must be reset manually, as below:

    1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
    2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a
    second of each other:
    DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that
    contains the Category with the Adjustment Item you want to change.
    2. To change the Category, press 2 or 5 on the Remote Commander.
    Note: Pressing 2 or 5 only changes the categories within the
    Service Menu displayed. To change a Category on one of the other
    Service Menus, press the JUMP button until the correct Service
    Menu is displayed.
    3. To change the Adjustment Item, press 1 or 4 on the Remote
    4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
    Note: To go back to the last saved Data Value, press 0 then ENT
    on the Remote Commander to read the memory.
    5. To save the changes, press MUTING then ENT to write into
    6. To exit service mode, turn the power off by pressing POWER .
    Wait 2 minutes before restarting the set to allow the fans to
    completely shut down or the Service Menu will appear on the screen.

    Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!

    I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.
