If you have replaced the lamp in your Sony projection TV you must reset the lamp timer to get rid of the message saying that your lamp needs to be replaced. Let's face it, you know you already accomplished replacing the lamp but the TV isn't smart enough to know that. I will explain in detail how to accomplish the reset procedure.
Resetting the lamp timer is a complicated procedure but you should be able to do it if you have plenty of patience and know how to follow instructions. Read the procedure over first several times before trying to do it and locate all the buttons on the remote. You may want to try the procedure on the remote to make sure that you have the sequence memorized.
By the way the lamp life is figured to be from 5000 to 8000 hours. That is not much time if the TV is being used for more than 8 hours per day. If you do the math and watch your TV for 8 hours per day (not uncommon) the lamp will need replaced in 3 to 5 years. So be ready to do this procedure again in the very near future.
Here is the procedure.
All commands should be done using the factory remote:
1) enter the service mode by pressing display, 5, volume +, Power on
2) press JUMP 3 times
3) to display the time press channel 2, 9 times
4) to reset lamp timer press channel 3, MUTE, Enter
5) to check the time press channel 1, 7 times
6) when complete turn set off to exit.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank You.
The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.
Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.
Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.
Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

Hi, Turn On tv. Press and hold Volume Down button on TV Front and PIP/ SPLIT button on Remote at same time for 6 Seconds to reset Lamp Timer and tv will show you timer reset message screen. Hope this info will help you. Thanks.
If the timer has not been reset telling the unit it has a new lamp you will get that message. Call a servicer to find out how to reset the timer if you don't have the owners manual. If the message continues after that you will need to purchace a new lamp. There are problems that accur with some aftermarket lamps.
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.
Try resseting the lamp timer following the info below:
Procedure for resetting the KDF42WE655, KDF50WE655, KDF55WF655, KDF55XS955, KDF60WF655 or KDF60XS955 lamp timer: 1. Press the JUMP button 3 times on the remote to get to the Panel OSD mode. 2. Next press the remote channel 2 button 9 times to get to the Lamp Timer mode. 3. Press the remote 3 button, mute, then enter to reset the timer to zero.
It will take 45-50 seconds for the timer to reset. After the timer is reset you can shut the TV off. The lamp timer will remain reset (no need to save).
I need help resetting the lamp timer. Is there a way to reset the timer w/o the remote? We bought this tv as a floor model 4 yrs ago and they didn't have the actual remote that came with it, so they gave us another remote that works. We replaced the lamp but we keep getting the message that the lamp needs to be replaced and the timer reset. Plus the red lamp indicator is still on. We even used a friend's remote (he has the exact same tv) and it still will not reset the timer.
