To reset the lamp hours, turn on the projector. Then press Menu and use the Up/Down arrows to highlight Options. Press Enter then highlight Lamp Runtime. Press and hold Enter for 3+ seconds until the Lamp Runtime screen is displays. Press the Power button (any other button cancels the reset). When the Power button LED turns red, unplug the power cord to the projector. You can either use the remote or the controls on the projector. Reconnect the power cord after a few minutes.

There is a "Lamp Time" setting that can be accessd using your remote control, check this setting.
Look on page 40 and after that of your manual about ambient temperature bulb failure.
By powering off or hittign the reset button the bulb should stay on IF the projector is gettign a signal from a device to show an image. If the projector is not hooked up to a device, laptop, TV, etc. the bulb may turn off to save hours of operation.

I don't thing that because you were not reset the time lamp used now your LCD projector stop function
What was exact the unit did? no power at all or some LED light up or flashing. In any case to reset the lamp time use you must enter when unit is on
As you mentioned you did replaced the new lamp, You should check again if you reinstalled properly the lamp and lamp cover because under the lamp cover it had a safety switch if this SW not active then the unit will be in protection mode
I sugges you to remove again the lamp and reinsert properly and secure the lamp cover and try it again and if it still is not go then let me know what are the status of the 2 LED
lamp hours can only be displayed by connecting two test points in side the projector. in normal operation, a message will be displayed on the screen when the lamp hours = 1090. when the lamp reaches 1100 hours, the projector will shut itself off. when you do replace the lamp, be sure to reset the lamp time in the setup menu (this is covered in your manual).
