Panasonic PT-60LCX64. What would happen if you

you won't get another warning for 2000 more hours on a lamp that is good for only 2000 hours (give or take). so, if you don't replace it, you run the risk of the lamp exploding at the end of it's life, sending shards of glass and mercury dust throughout the projector.

Sony cineza vpl hs51 projector won't project

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.

The lamp may not have been changed - just the timer reset - How many hours has the lamp really done - 1000, 3000, 5000?
If you know that the hours are genuine, then was the quartz bulb contaminated with a touch of oil from skin contact?
This will substantially shorten lamp life, due to the quartz going milky and opaque.
The easiest way to check, is to pull the lamp and have a look at the bulb.

If need be replace the lamp and reset the lamp timer.

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS51
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

Infocus LP725 Replacement Bulb

if you don't know exactly how many hours are on the new lamp, you can't be sure it works. since it's a mercury lamp, there will be no contenuity. check the lamp for cracks or clouding, not just burn marks.if the lamp is actually good, you may have a ballast issue.
