It's only a problem when you try and finance a new bulb ($400.00 for mine). But seriously, the only "problem" is that an older bulb exhibits much lower light levels and the picture has crappy color, brightness and contrast. Keep a coffe can around and put a few bucks in it everytime you watch it. when the bulb finally blows you'll have a couple hundred bucks in there towards a new one. (a little easier to handle)

We use NEC MT1065 and just replace its lamp but it still won't switched on (lamp indicator led is red). How can I reset it ?


Hello, unfortunately the NEC MT1060 - MT1070 series projectors have EEPROM chips built into the lamp housing which counts the hours that the lamp has been used for so the only way to reset the hours is to change the lamp for a new one, if your old lamp has only had the reflector replaced then it will make no differance because the chip tells the projector weather or not to power up depending on the hours its counted, i have not yet found a way to reset the chips even by reprogramming them, i'm afraid the only solution is to replace the lamp with an official NEC unit, but this was obviously their intention, just as an added note, a solid red lamp indicator light means that the lamp has expired, if its flashing red this means its nearing the end of its life, if the status indicator light is flashing then there could be another issue, by counting the flashes you can reffer to the manual in the troubleshooting section to diagnose the fault, I know this is very late, but anyone else reading this may find it helpfull.

NO PICTURE OR SOUND


Hi
Usually, if the red light is flashing and you get no picture, that means that the lamp life cycle is finished and you'll have to get a replacment lamp. the lamp has about 3000 hours of life (2 to 3 years under nomal use).

You can buy a replacment lamp from here

Hope this helps

TV WILL NOT TURN OFF


Greeting inmiltown,

It sounds like your approaching the end of your lamp's life. Most projection televisions have internal lamp timers. These lamp timers usually give you time to buy a new bulb before it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps.
