Hi there

When going into your Menu option there is a subfolder that will either read Lamp or Lamptimer. Scroll down to it and down you right or left arrow key on the Projector for a couple of seconds.

My projector has only just over 200 hours and is now showing a replace lamp message. The hours have also been reset???


The lamp hours might have not been properly reset.

1. Press the "POWER" button so that the projector projects the picture on the wall (projection screen)
2. Press the "MENU" button to show the "MAIN MENU"
Use buttons "F" or "G" and select "OPTION"
3. Confirm this by pressing "ENTER" so that "OPTION" is shown
Using buttons "5 / 6", select "LAMP RUNTIME" (lamp operation counter)
4. Select and press the "ENTER" button for at least 3 seconds
5. The "LAMP RUNTIME" (lamp operation counter) will change to "TIME RESET[POWER OFF]"
6. Turn the device off by pressing "POWER" and unplug the power cord.

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,

Nec mt-1065 lamp hours reset


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, 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.

Light hours getting close to 3000, but picture still looks good,will resetting lamp hour hurt and keep using same lamp be ok. thanks david


No do not reset the lamp hrs. because the lamp might reach the ed of life and could blow resulting in mercury poisoning. If you notice there is a warning sign that pops up in red or something saying to change the lamp, it will shut down eventually during that warning time. You have gotten a lot of hours with that lamp and consider being fortunate to have such reliability. Buy a new lamp when needed as it will improve your experience.

RESET LAMP HOURS


Hi Greg147

The resetting is not done in the menu.

Plug in your power cable - Machine is now in standby mode.

Then Hold down the left and right arrow keys on the Projector and press the power button. You'll see a indicator light on top of the Projector flashing twice - Lamp hours is now reset.

Hope this is of help.
