Try turning the projector on and wait for one minute. On the projector keypad, press and hold the Volume + and Volume - keys for ten seconds.

How to reset lamp hours after changing the lamp


Go into the "utilities" menu, there should be a setting there. But, since lamp life is so variable, it really doesn't mean much. Just remember what the value was when you changed the lamp and subtract that from the new total to get your new lamp's run-time.

I have a PT-AX200U projector, I have noticed that the picture is diming intermitently


how may hours has your lamp done?
if you have crossed more than 1500 hours , u may need to change the lamp.
the problem could however be that of the signal cable which could be intermittent and causing similar fault.
check if the same problem is seen in all inputs!

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.

We have had this projector for 2 years. The projector will not turn on. It will turn green for 3 seconds then turn red and the lamp light turns red. I feel like the lamp could not already be worn? I was...


Whether or not you need to replace the lamp depends on how many hours of use it's had. You should be able to find the lamp time somewhere in the menu on the projector. Lamps for this projector are rated for 2000 hours (bright mode) or 3000 hours (Eco mode). In my experience they usually need changing at approx. 1500 to 1600 hours (bright mode). On Page 54 of the owners manual ( http://www.projectorcentral.com/pdf/projector_manual_4177.pdf ) are instructions for changing the lamp and zeroing the timer once it's changed. The lamp is Type number : DT00911. You should be able to get one from the manufacturer, the dealer you purchased the projector from, or specialty bulb and lamp stores. Be prepared. They aren't cheap, but it's better than having to buy a new projector.

Changed lamp and now turns on and only stays on for about 5 minutes and red lamp light stays on in an acer ph110 projector


Hi, what you need to do is reset the lamp hours to get the red light to go if it is a new lamp. To do that plug in a source such as a laptop or dvd player. When the display from the laptop or picture comes up go into the menu and reset the lamp hours I had the same problem. Hope this works if not let me know.

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.

The optoma hd72 projector lamp goes out after 30 seconds.. the big game is this weekend... what can I do?


I had this exact same problem. I have changed bulbs gotten 1000 or so hours from new bulb, changed the lamp driver and gotten about 600 more hours from new lamp driver. New lamp cost me $350, lamp driver cost me $120. Then I read on a page to try and flip it right side up, because I had it ceiling mounted upside down. I flipped it right side up and it works perfectly and has been working perfectly for 2 months now. I know it sounds stupid, but it actually worked for me, and it costs you nothing to try it. For some reason, gravity effects this unit.

HD72I WORKS FOR 30SECONDS AND THEN SWITCHES OFF


I had the same problem with very few hours on the lamp. Sent it back to the factory and they said the fan was overheating causing the bulb to shut down. They replaced the fan and the bulb for free under warranty. I noticed before I sent it the projector was putting out an incredible amount of heat. MUCH better after fan replacement.

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.
