Hello

Thanks for using this service

Welcome to JustAnswer

 

Try disconnecting the powercord first wait for unit to cool down if its been used, it says in the service manual that initially the powercord is disconnected,re-connect then press enter/ arrow down/ arrow right you then press ON as the last thing to do,its very important sometimes that you get the sequence correct

 

Please post back if you still have probs

 

Regards

I had already done as you have described right after I installed the new lamp. As a matter of fact when it didn't work the first time , I disconnected the power again after it cooled down and did the same sequence and the replace lamp icon came on again and the lamp hours still did not reset.

Sorry about getting back to you late. I wasn't at the location where the unit is. The lamp indicator is red, the power is blue and the temp is not lit.

Hello Tony

 

With the lamp led being red as well as the lamp hours not setting the micro still is locked into believing the old lamp is in

 

Are you sure the switches ie the buttons that you are pressing are all working?

 

Their isnt any other way to reset the lamp hours except this way

 

The projector eeprom could be reset I'm not sure of the settings necesary and I wouldnt want to do this without knowing the outcome

 

Tony I could upload the service manual if you like their is a factory initialise but to be honest I have never used it on one of these units so I'm not sure, its your call

 

When you press the selected buttons one is on the mainboard a tact switch, a menu comes up all as you really want as it doesnt say is to factory initialise like you just got the unit

If you could send me the manual I would appreciate it, I might find some clues as to how to get it to reset.
