    Hello all,

    I have a good question for you:

    Someone needs to replace the lamp life hours counter on a Hitachi CPX 275, as they have replaced the lamp but are still getting the lamp life warning.

    Hitachi UK can't help as he is not a dealer, and the manual is no help either.

    I am aware that on some projectors there is a button combination that can be held down when the pj is switched back on - can anyone help him please?

    Thanks,

    Matthew

    From the manual of the CP-X325 (my projector). If you're lucky it'll be the same with yours, but I don't know for sure. Anyway, here's what it says:

    Resetting the Lamp timer
    Reset the lamp timer after replacing hte lamp. When the lamp has been replaced after the LAMP indicator is red, or the CHANGE THE LAMP message is displayed, complete the following operation within ten minutes of switching power ON. The power will be turned off automatically in over 10 minutes.

    1. Switch power ON, and press the TIMER button on the remote control transmitter, or the RESET button on the control panel, for approximately three seconds. The 'LAMP xxxx hr' message will appear on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.
    2. Press the MENU button on the remote control transmitter, or the RESET button on the control panel, while the lamp timer is displayed. The 'LAMP xxxx [] -> 0 [|] CANCEL' message will then appear.
    3. Press the [<|] and select 0, and wait until the timer display is cleared.

    NOTE:
    Do not reset the lamp timer without replacing the lamp. Reset the lamp timer always when replace the lamp. The message function will not operate properly if the lamp timer is not reset correctly.


    Hope that helps mate,

    Dunc

    BTW, if you need any help decyphering the button graphics, let me know (I had to improvise. :) )

    Thanks Dunc,

    I'm the person who had the original problem. Thanks for your help. I'll try it tomorrow. I wasn't absolutely sure about the last step where you have to select '0'. Is that using the curser keys? I'm sure this'll become obvious anyway when I see the unit working. Thanks again.
