    I have just got hold of a Sony CPJ-D500 LCD Projector but there was no manual. This is my first go at PJ's and I know this is quite old but it was cheap and I only consider it temp until I can save up enough for the AE300 or similar. Although I've got to say I'm quite pleased with it in a dark room so should I buy something new I expect to be wowed.

    Anyway I want to check the lamp hours used but don't know how to get to it. I have checked in the normal menu but there is no mention of it in there. I have also managed to get some sort of screen saver going by holding down 2 buttons at same time but can't find a way to the lamp timer. Has anyone got one of these or know how to get to the lamp timer?

    Sorry, only just come accross your thread whilst searching for info on CPJ-D500. I have one complete with manual. That's the good news. Bad news is that there is no function given in the manual to check the lamp hours - I think they expect you to replace it when it gets too dark !!. If you want any info from manual post a comment and I will reply. Also have disk for WIn95 if you are using with a PC.

    timothywood, thks very much for clearing that up. I would very much like to get a copy of the disk, could you possibly email it to me, I will PM you my email details incase you can. Also I know I'm now being cheeky, but is it possible to say copy the manual, just the English if its mutilingal, if it is to big or this is to difficult, expensive or time consuming then don't worry has I said I'm being a bit cheek in asking anyway.

    Thks again for your help :)
