Question about Sony VPL-DS100 Multimedia Projector

How do I reset the lamp timer on the Sony VPL-DS100?

I have recently replaced the lamp on our Sony VPL-DS100 to find that the 'replace the lamp' prompt appears on the screen. It will turn off after 20 seconds or so but appears every time the unit is turned on. The advice listed in the manual (RESET, < , >, ENTER) does not appear to do anything. Also, in the menu option, will the 'bulb hours' return to zero?
Many thanks for this wonderful service!

The answer above is incorrect. You do not hit all four button simultaneously, The "trick" is that you need to press each button (in order) but quickly. The Sony manual wrongly lead you to believe that the bottons are to be pushed "for less than five seconds each" when it means to say that you need to press all 4 buttons as fast as possible (i.e. 2 or 3 seconds for all 4 buttons).

Yes, press RESET, <, >, ENTER keys on remote simultaneously to reset lamp timer. Display of lamp will also change to zero.
Make sure projector is just plugged in and should not power On (in standby mode) to reset lamp timer.

Sony VPL-DS100 will not turn on


I had same problem. The cause was a blown fuse (T5.0 Amp 250V). You have to open the case and then get below the print that is under the alloy cover. it is quite simple to fix. A fuse costs 60 cents.
