1 Answer

I have a Sony VPL-CX61 Multimedia Projector. I just changed the lamp and I cannot get the "please replace lamp" message to go off.


When you use a projector it automatically keeps a timer of how long the lamp has been used for. The message that comes up on screen saying "please replace the lamp" comes up not because it's some how sensing that the lamp is getting old, but because the lamp hours gets to a certain number (usually up around 1500 hours). Because of this when you replace the lamp you need to reset the lamp hours counter, or the projector doesn't even know you've changed it. Every projector does it this way, and they all do it a different way, I googled the model you gave us and found this set of instructions on how to do it, so give it a go.

Reset the lamp counter hours of operation for the projector SONY VPL-CX61
Using the remote commander while the unit is powered up, press "ENTER", "ENTER", "LEFT"
and "ENTER" in sequence. A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to enter the factory mode.
Press the "UP" key on the remote and the unit is now in service mode. This sequence will add two new groups
to the customer setup menu. Press the "MENU" button to view.
Whenever the lamp is replaced, the lamp timer should be reset. With the unit in the "factory" mode, press
"RESET", "LEFT", "RIGHT" and "ENTER" on the remote commander. Verify the lamp hours have been reset to
zero in the service menu.


Hope this worked for you,

Reset lamp hours on vpl-fx52


The unit must be on Standby and then you press the reset, <,> and enter. I would recommend doing it a couple of times. You can do this from the remote. I would assume it can be done on the units control panel also. The main thing is to have the unit in standby. It doesn't work if the units not in standby mode.

I just replace a lamp on Sony vpl-cs20 and lamp timer is still high


You should turn on the VP-CS20 with the button on projector, NOT THE REMOTE or the instructions wont work.

Using the remote commander while the unit is powered up, press "ENTER", "ENTER", "LEFT"

and "ENTER" in sequence. A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to enter the factory mode.

Press the "UP" key on the remote and the unit is now in service mode. This sequence will add two new groups

to the customer setup menu. Press the "MENU" button to view.

Whenever the lamp is replaced, the lamp timer should be reset. With the unit in the "factory" mode, press

"RESET", "LEFT", "RIGHT" and "ENTER" on the remote commander. Verify the lamp hours have been reset to zero in the service menu.


Hope it helps,

DIRTY LAMP FOR VPL-CS5 SONY PROJECTOR (USED)


to clean the lamp: no chemicals, nothing abrasive. you can touch the outer glass (not with your fingers), but do not touch anythjing inside the bell. best thing to use is a microfiber cloth. your lamp is nearing or has passed 2000 hours of use. the projector is telling you to replace it before it blows (and sometimes shatters). after you replace it, reset the lamp timer (through the menu).

LMP-H150 reset hours on sony cineza VPL-HS2


These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS2
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.
