Thanks for this info Guru
I had the same problem. Based on your above post, I did a work
around. (yes- the fuse does need to blow upon replacement)
Epson 7550C with an ELPLP07

I soldered an external fuse holder to the original lamp housing and
wired it outside the case. I put in a 500ma fuse, but it was too
strong for the ELPLP07 to blow. (should be 100ma I think)
(the projector goes to flashing red after 3 seconds)

So to cheat this, I powered on the unit, hit the projector-lamp-on
button, and then withing the first 3 seconds, I unscrewed the
fuse from the holder and removed it

This faked out the projector into thinking it blew the fuse.
Sure enough, the timer cleared, and I have 2000 hours again.
(And no more flashing yellow lamp light. All green now)

I would have never figured this out without your post above.
Thanks again...

Hi there

The Epson Powerlite 7300's lamp has got a chip on the side of the lamp's bracket that resets the lamp timer automatically when a new lamp is inserted. And it only does it once - first time the unit is switched on after replacing with a new lamp.

The fuse on this chip blows and causes the lamp timer to be reset. Unfortunatelly this is the only way to reset the lamp timer on this model. There is no manual way.

So to cutt to the chase , you will have to buy the original lamp and replace it before it will reset.

Part Number is : ELPLP05

I have an epson powerlite 825 projector. I recently replaced the lamp and it came on but i was getting the overheating message. So i opened it and air cleaned the fans and filter. Now i get a solid red...

Well hopefully you didn't over spin any of your fans. You can reset the lamp timer with the buttons on the unit, but you have to be able to project. Its in the menus at the bottom called reset. The 825 has an over heating issue. If its in warranty it should go in. I was able to get a firmware update for it but you'd have to push Epson tech support on that. I wonder if you didn't do something to the lamp cover it depresses a switch.

Connect the power cable, power on the projector and then press the [Menu] button on the remote control. The configuration menu will be displayed.

Select Reset Lamp Timer from the About menu, and then either press the [Enter] button on the remote control or the [Auto/Enter] button on the projector's control panel.

Select Yes, and then press either the [Enter] button on the remote control or the [Auto/Enter] button on the projector's control panel.

How do I reset the Lamp Timer on my Epson Powerlite 5000?

Have you replaced the lamp yet? You should replace the lamp because if you reset it with the old lamp, it could possibly wear out and explode inside the projector. Reset instructions are in the new lamp box.

Need to reset lamp timer

The lamp timer expiring would not shutdown the unit typically. Purchase a replacement lamp and included will be the instructions to both replace the lamp and reset the timer.
