    I am having the same issue. Unplugged the projector before taking the family on a trip. Now it won't turn on again. I have cleaned it, replaced the bulb and the filter. It just won't turn back on.

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.

I have a sharp notevision DLP xr10x projector. Two red lights, one is the lamp, the other standby/power. I changed the lamp but nothing changed. I can't even turn the thing on. Any ideas?


Hi Stephen,

Do you hear any fans starting when you turn on the projector? Try unplugging and then plugging in the projector. Make sure that the lamp door is secured as the projector will not start if it is loose. You should also reset the timer for your projector. The manual can be found on the site of www.allprojectorlamps.com.

Lamp timer reset for toshiba tlpx100


To reset the lamp counter:
  1. Turn power off and unplug the power cord
  2. Simultaneously hold down these three buttons: "ON/STANDBY", "RETURN", "DOWN" (the arrow down symbol)
  3. Plug in the power cord while still holding down the buttons.
    The Projector will emit a series of beeps.
  4. Turn on power using "ON/STANDBY" button and check that "0H" appears on the lamp time in the status display.
  5. Turn off projector using "ON/STANDBY" button
  6. Unplug power cord.
I hope this helps.

This works on a couple different Toshiba models -- might work on yours...

Make sure the main power switch is OFF. Hold the "ON", "MENU", and "INPUT" buttons at the same time and turn the main power switch on. Keep them held until the yellow power standby light comes on, then let go. It is done.

Won't power off when pressing power button, just goes to standby mode


With most projectors you have to press the power button twice to confirm that you want to turn it off. When you press it the first time it waits for a bit and then turns itself back on assuming you hit the power button on accident.
