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.

  • 2

    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.

    It does not sound like resetting the lamp timer is what is keeping the projector from throwing an image. Try walking through the steps of the installation backwards to remove the bulb completely. Then reinstall the bulb again from scratch making sure everything is seated properly. If it powers up again just remember to set the clock back on the bulb.

    Bulb timer has expired. Press the left arrow, right arrow and power switch simultaneously for a few seconds. The projector should power up, but this indicates that a new bulb is required and should be fitted as soon as possible, as there is a risk of the old bulb exploding.

    Sony vpl-hs20 cineza projector- reset lamp counter

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

    Infocus LP725 projector

    The Projector will turn off after so many hours of running the same bulb module. The counter will turn on a replace bulb LED. Installing the new bulb module should reset the counter and turn off the LED.

    Check the projector’s lamp to ensure that it is securely connected
    in the lamp module. Make sure by removing it and reinserting it.

    Check the cables for problems.

    When testing, power up in this order. Projector, Computer monitor, Computer.

    A minor power surge may cause the lamp to shut off. Turn the
    projector off, wait at least 30 seconds, then turn it back on.

    I hope these suggestions help
