Ive recently bought a second hand Sony Cineza VPL-HS2 projector and it doesnt have an AVG input in the back. It does have a S-Video input, a 'video' input and a couple of audio inputs, aswell as a PL multi but im using an older Toshiba model laptop and the only options are USB or AVG so ive orderd a AVG to S-Video converter cable.. will i be able to put the AVG into my laptop and the S-Video into the projector for it to work? I do have the PJ Multi lead but its rather useless to me

I think you mean "VGA" not "AVG". You can use the VGA to S-Video adapter to connect the laptop to the projector however you may get better results using a VGA to A/V (component) adapter to feed video into the RCA video input connector.

Testimonial: "Yes, sorry i did mean VGA. The adapter arrived this morning BUT after connecting the VGA i then went to insert the s-video but realised the wire was the same as the input (if that makes sense, sorry im not tech savvy at all but basically both the S-video input socket and the S-Video lead have the same connections. The lead doesnt have any pins to fit into the input) Im really confused with the connections for this projector.. where is the RCA video connector? there is a yellow input next to s-video that says "Video" underneath, is that it? I have no idea what cable to buy... are you able to suggest one for me from amazon or somewhere?"

    Actually ive just been having a look at my connections and using the PJ multi lead wich has an S-video pin connection (aswell as a red and a white audio connectors i believe?) anyway i put my new VGA connector into my laptop and connected the PL multi's S-video connection into the VGA's S-Video and connected the PL multi in the back but its still not seeming to work?

    You may need to configure your laptop's video to recognize the device connected to the s-video output. You will also need to enable both the laptop's LCD display and the projector in Windows if that is the operating system. FN+F5 is a common key combination to switch displays on many laptops or if you are using Windows 7 there is a "presentation" control panel applet for this purpose.

SOURCE: 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.

Noticed a yellow hue in the centre of the image projected by BOTH of my second-hand Sony VPL PX40's.


Bit of a common problem with Sony projectors of the era that they often had problems with fading and/or cracking of one or more the LCD panels - especially the blue ones for some reason, leading to the type of problem you are experiencing. No point in swapping components either as they will both have similar faults - although replacing an LCD in a video projector is almost impossible without the manufacturers jigs to mechanically align them afterwards anyway...

You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

I have a Sony vpl-1 projector that on initial start up it shuts itself off We have to keep cutting the power completely and start it again, this we have to do for around 4 or 5 times before it works...


If the projector has a lens cap, you have to help the projector to open it completely. Just use your finger and push the cap all ther way. On the projector I have this vis the case. there is a micro switch at the end og the lens cap opening mechanism.

Blue "Haze" at top of screen


My VPL-HS51 just started doing the same thing. There's a lot of similar reports out there and they all end up at the same bottom line - the problem is due to a design defect in the 'prism block' (LCD panel) and the only option, other than to throw it away or sell it for parts, is to pay Sony about $2300.00 to fix it. Good luck!
