    What exactly do you need help with? If the lamp is dead you need to buy a new one and install it.

I don't think the problems are related. The bulb shouldn't have failed as it is rated at 2000 hours. As for testing the ballast I don't believe that a conventional meter would do it. You would need a lamp testing device. For more go to http://www.myprojectorlamps.com/testing.html Since projector lamps or ballasts are not cheap you may want to have a a/v repair shop check your projector, because of the early bulb failure.

topscrew2002

From what you have written, when you try to record on your DVR the remote stops working, is that correct? How long has this been happening? Have you received a new remote? If yes and it is still happening, you are probably getting IR interference from some source in that room. It could be from a florescent lamp, another player, or even the TV. Is the receiver in a open space or in an enclosed area? The IR sensor has to have a direct line of sight to work properly. You may also check on the receiver if anything is obstructing the sensors, maybe dust. I hope this helps.

Unresponsive, lamp dies upon start


if you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel is shot and needs replacing. if you do, one of the fans might not be working and the heat shuts it off so as not to cause damage.

Place heat shielding around the lamp to prevent overheat; use cooling spray (freon) to cool any chips or, circuit boards near the lamp as you attempt to start the set check the lamp for the correct serial # voltage etc.

Sony vpl-hs20 cineza projector- reset lamp counter


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

This is required, to reset the lamp timer.

Also, 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.

I cannot reset my lamp clock


http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080221185527AAvGCui

I just now replaced my lamp and tried the solution on the above bookmarked site (hold down VOL- on the TV itself while holding down the SPLIT button on the TV remote simultaneously for several seconds... I didn't need all 20 seconds that this site recommends), and that worked for me. About 5-10 seconds in, I saw a blue box on my screen that basically said "Lamp timer has been reset to 0" with an "Exit" box below that. It took me a while to find the "Exit" button on my remote control to clear that box off the screen, but that's how I cleared it.

My TV is just short of 3 years old; I bought my Panasonic PT-52LCX65 on "Black Friday" (day after Thanksgiving) in 2005. My lamp died last Saturday night.

Hope this helps! -- ChuckE

Fan does not work, light does


Hello,

Your remote uses a slightly different band of IR for one and the other functions; lamp or on/off. This IR lamp or the circuit that controls the IR lamp has failed. You will need a new remote.

Hunter is good about making replacement parts available but as you said this is five years old. You may have to look for an after market seller on Ebay and chances are very good you can find a new one there.

Lamp clock reset


The only way to reset the lamp timer is with the LG programmer remote, however resetting the lamp timer does not affect the picture quality. If you need a part # for the remote let me know. Maybe you can find an auth. service center who will let you use the remote. If they do, simply power the unit up and when running hit the instart button on the programmer remote and after the menu comes on the screen simply hit the offstart button. The unit will shut of and when you power it again the lamp timer will be reset.
