Hold the volume down button on the tv until the volume is at min. then continue to depress the volume down button on the TV. While depressing the volume down button the tv hold the pip or split button on your remote for approx 5 sec. You will see a box pop up that says lamp timer reset and gives instruction on how to exit.

How to reset the lamp timer on Sony Projection TVs.

If you have replaced the lamp in your Sony projection TV you must reset the lamp timer to get rid of the message saying that your lamp needs to be replaced. Let's face it, you know you already accomplished replacing the lamp but the TV isn't smart enough to know that. I will explain in detail how to accomplish the reset procedure.

Resetting the lamp timer is a complicated procedure but you should be able to do it if you have plenty of patience and know how to follow instructions. Read the procedure over first several times before trying to do it and locate all the buttons on the remote. You may want to try the procedure on the remote to make sure that you have the sequence memorized.

By the way the lamp life is figured to be from 5000 to 8000 hours. That is not much time if the TV is being used for more than 8 hours per day. If you do the math and watch your TV for 8 hours per day (not uncommon) the lamp will need replaced in 3 to 5 years. So be ready to do this procedure again in the very near future.

Here is the procedure.

All commands should be done using the factory remote:

1) enter the service mode by pressing display, 5, volume +, Power on
2) press JUMP 3 times
3) to display the time press channel 2, 9 times
4) to reset lamp timer press channel 3, MUTE, Enter
5) to check the time press channel 1, 7 times
6) when complete turn set off to exit.

Lamp hour reset

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

Toyota Land Cruiser check timimg Belt


I am assuming that you have a series 80 diesel engine and that it has run for about 100,000 kms hence the warning light and the changing of the timing belt. Based on the instructions of its repair manual you need to "remove the grommet off from the speedometer and turn off the lamp by pushing the warning light reset switch, then replace the grommet." Alternately, you can try to reset the entire computer of the vehicle by removing the battery cables for a couple of minutes. Pls note that some car radios/head units would revert to security default (ask for a code) when power is completely removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
