Hi Malibu Stevi

To get the best time out of your Projector and your lamp , you should take in your Projector at least twice a year for a service.

If you want to clean out the filters , simply take a vacuum cleaner and vacuum the dust out.

As for the fan , this could be as a result of dust , but I would suggest you have it checked out by a Sony Service Provider as fan malfunction is the biggest cause of lamps blowing.

Also try not to run the Projector for short periods at a time as this simply eats away on your lamp. Rather leave it running for longer periods a Projector's lamp is similar to the lamp's you use in your house - switching on and off all the time makes the lamp's fillament weak - Take my word on this , I've had please using the Projector to watch a odd movie now and then and they only get 500 - 1000 hours on their lamps. And then I've had clients who use their Projectors as TV's and they got 10 000 - 15000 hours on their lamps.

Hope this is of help and thanks for using Fixya !

SOURCE: sony vpl-hs20 cineza projector- reset lamp counter

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS3.
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter

This is required, to reset the lamp timer.

Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

My Sony VPLHS-20 has original bulb, now just shut off 50 mins into the SuperBowl. No fault light, in fact, no lights showing on the display at all. Bulb has around 1800 hours. I waited 10 minute, red...


Pretty sure it the bulb as most are rated at 2000 hours; but also check for full air flow - clean filters etc. Bulbs can run hotter as they age, so air flow is more important, because there is an inside heat sensor that will shut the machine down.

VPL-HS20 shuts down in the middle of a movie


There is a heat sensor cutting down the power. The sensor is located on the upper side between lamp and fan and is monitoring the air temperatur. I don't know what is causing the sensor to switch - excessive heat or simply age or ... . Anyway un screwed this sensor and my problem disappeared.
Possibly a stronger fan would solve the problem too.

VPL-HS20 issues...who's got the right answers!


I know this post is 3yrs old, but wanted to add a couple things. I have the VPL-HS20, you can take the filter out and blow it out with air can duster every so often. I bought a new one and they are over $30.00.. Also buy the correct bulb LMP-H180 3000hrs if you replace it. You can clean the front lens protector, Remove slide tab, hold top and bottom of lens cover assembly and give a firm 1/4 twist clockwise, then pull out. You can clean it with glass cleaner cloth.
