Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a DT 100 Sharp projector. The lamp needed to be replaced. We did that but projector will not turn on. In reading the book--after the fact-- it says that if the lamp needs to be replace (projector tells you) if you turn the projector on without replacing the lamp after the 4th time the projector will not turn on. Now how do I over ride that or reset the projector? Tried unpluging it overnight did not work I still have 20 days left on my year warrenty, but would like it to work now.

    Thank you so much for the warranty advice. We did take it in for service and we found out that we were not resetting the lamp correctly. Once that was done it works. We were then told that we should put the old lamp back in to see if we could still use it, as the new lamps are so expensive. I was able to find a new lamp for $370.00 delivered to my door. The service person for Sharp products was wonder -- we now have our projector working with the old lamp which should get 5000 hours, at 1000 the timer tells you to replace the lamp. So if someone has a projector that is requesting to replace the lamp try to reset the timer as long as the lamp is in good shape, not blown or broken.

FINAL WARNING REPLACE LAMP NOW


All rear projection TVs has a lamp thats like a special bulb inside the TV.

The TV is warning you that this is about to go and will need to be replaced.

This is not a serious problem as TV lamps goes after certains hours of use (normally 4,000 hours sometimes more) and the TV manual should have instructions on how to do this and the part you need.

Contact Sharp support if your TV is still in warranty and for further help :
