Question about JVC DLA-HX1 Multimedia Projector
I just purchased a replacement lamp (BHL5006-S) for my JVC DLA HX1U. I am unable to get my unit going again because my projector unit somehow has me locked out (so to speak) - I am gathering. After so many hours of total use on the last lamp (I am guessing approximately 2010+ the unit will simply not startup/turn on: the "Standby lamp is "on" (Red), the "Lamp" indicator light constantly flashes red. I have followed the steps outlined in my manual which suggest that I need to follow a sequence to reset the lamp timer before it will work again (i.e., press "Exit", "Hide", "Preset" and then hold the "Vol +" button for 2 or more seconds. The Operate and Standby buttons are supposed to flash and then I should be able to turn the unit on. I have tried this via the Remote control, directly on the unit itself, etc. No such luck. I have verified that the new lamp is seated properly, latch closed properly, door closed properly, filters cleaned, power unplugged/replugged, etc., all to no avail. I left the unit unplugged overnight hoping that this might clear a battery of some such memory device - this did not work either. The Status never changes when plugged in - the "Standby lamp comes "on" (Red)", the "Lamp" indicator light flashes red. There apparently is more that I must do (or perhaps something which I have done which needs to be done differently, but this has gotten very frustrating. Would love a solution ASAP if someone knows it. Thanks in advance.
Apparently, the above posted steps do work, but they are finicky. The manual suggests that you do the aforementioned steps with the remote - I had tried with the remote and when that did not work I tried directly on the controls on the unit itself. Neither had worked - after multiple attempts, hence the posting above. The solution was that the various steps need to be done speedily - when I previously did it I apparently did not press the sequence rapidly enough. Nothing in the manual suggests that this is the case (and in fact I thought I had previously followed the steps in rapid succession on at least one of the many times I had tried, but apparently not quickly enough). I never could get this rapid succession of steps to work with the remote (as the manual said I needed to), but I did ultimately get the rapid succession of steps to work when done directly to the unit itself. The first three steps need to be completed within approximately 1-1.5 seconds, the final push of the volume+ button did require 2 or more seconds before the process was recognized (and complete). Never did have a single FixYa party try to address my issue - perhaps you only really get responses from them when you pay for their monthly service.
