Hi David

I think you should replace the lamp.

SOURCE: Sony VPL-DS100 will not turn on

I had same problem. The cause was a blown fuse (T5.0 Amp 250V). You have to open the case and then get below the print that is under the alloy cover. it is quite simple to fix. A fuse costs 60 cents.

SOURCE: 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.

VPL-HS20 shuts down in the middle of a movie


There is a heat sensor cutting down the power. The sensor is located on the upper side between lamp and fan and is monitoring the air temperatur. I don't know what is causing the sensor to switch - excessive heat or simply age or ... . Anyway un screwed this sensor and my problem disappeared.
Possibly a stronger fan would solve the problem too.

VPL-HS20 issues...who's got the right answers!


I know this post is 3yrs old, but wanted to add a couple things. I have the VPL-HS20, you can take the filter out and blow it out with air can duster every so often. I bought a new one and they are over $30.00.. Also buy the correct bulb LMP-H180 3000hrs if you replace it. You can clean the front lens protector, Remove slide tab, hold top and bottom of lens cover assembly and give a firm 1/4 twist clockwise, then pull out. You can clean it with glass cleaner cloth.
