Re: Lamp timer reset

Found in the owners manual.

It's important to reset the Lamp timer after replacing the lamp since the Lamp timer
will trigger the warning message. This can be done in Standby mode by pressing the
following sequence within 5 sec.
RESET, Left Arrow Key, right Arrow Key, ENTER.
This is also explained in the operation manual of the Lamp.

The machine starts, eventhe vent, but no image appears. All the lights, except the POWER SAVING one remain lights on.

  • Plug the projector into the wall and put it into standby mode. You should have already replaced the projector's lamp with a new LMP-P200.
  • Press the "Reset," left arrow, right arrow and "Enter" keys on the projector's control panel. Press them in the exact order listed here, one after another, and press each key for less than five seconds.
  • Turn the projector on with the "Power" button. Press the "Menu" key to enter the projector's menu settings.
  • Press the down arrow to navigate to the "Install Setting" menu and press the right arrow to select it. You should see the lamp timer at the bottom of the screen. If you have correctly reset the lamp timer, it will indicate 0 or 1 hours.
  • Press the "Menu" key to exit the menu system.

    I have a Sony VPL-CX61 Multimedia Projector. I just changed the lamp and I cannot get the "please replace lamp" message to go off.

    When you use a projector it automatically keeps a timer of how long the lamp has been used for. The message that comes up on screen saying "please replace the lamp" comes up not because it's some how sensing that the lamp is getting old, but because the lamp hours gets to a certain number (usually up around 1500 hours). Because of this when you replace the lamp you need to reset the lamp hours counter, or the projector doesn't even know you've changed it. Every projector does it this way, and they all do it a different way, I googled the model you gave us and found this set of instructions on how to do it, so give it a go.

    Reset the lamp counter hours of operation for the projector SONY VPL-CX61
    Using the remote commander while the unit is powered up, press "ENTER", "ENTER", "LEFT"
    and "ENTER" in sequence. A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to enter the factory mode.
    Press the "UP" key on the remote and the unit is now in service mode. This sequence will add two new groups
    to the customer setup menu. Press the "MENU" button to view.
    Whenever the lamp is replaced, the lamp timer should be reset. With the unit in the "factory" mode, press
    "RESET", "LEFT", "RIGHT" and "ENTER" on the remote commander. Verify the lamp hours have been reset to
    zero in the service menu.

    Hope this worked for you,
