If both lights are flashing orange, that means that the bulb needs to be replaced and the filter needs to be cleaned. Make sure you reset the counters for both after you replace them.

SOURCE: Lamp turns off
The solution is a weird one. I had the same problem with my Sony Cienza VPL-HS1. Run for about 5 minutes and then the lamp would go out. The warning would show that Lamp/Cover was an issue. I assumed the lamp had reached its lifespan.
All it was, was the filter sitting in the filter box has a small trigger switch that turns off the lamp as a safety when someone inadvertently opens the cover for the filter.
Well, strangely enough, the box and the cover are sized in a way to expand when they heat up. (which they do aggressively) When they heat up they expand, and ever so slightly move the filter away from the switch far enough to trigger it to the off position (only about 1/64th of an inch).
Thats why when some of you tip your projector on its side it runs ok (gravity pushing the filter back in place).
The solution is to put a tiny strip of duct tape along the far edge (the edge opposite of the switch) of the filter on its plastic surround. This will snug-up the filter harder against the switch. Even when it tries to shift under expansion and contraction, it will not allow the switch to poke out far enough to turn off.
So, a penny of tape does the job!

your projector status means the protection circuit is working or the lamp is in an abnormal condition.
--wait until status indicator goes out and press power button.
---if the above solution is not working change the lamp.

Both power light and status light a solid red with no response to any buttons indicates the bulb timer has expired. You need to reset the timer by pressing and holding the left arrow key, the right arrow key and the power button all at the same time for a few seconds.
If there are no problems, the projector will fire up, but you must replace the bulb as it will fail soon and perhaps explode when it does.
