1.6. "Replace Bulb Soon" Message on Projector
The message "Replace Bulb Soon" will flash on your projector screen once the bulb hours counter has reached 3000 hours. Many times, the bulb does not have to be replaced yet and to save money on the high cost of replacement bulbs, we don't normally replace the bulb when this message displays unless the projection quality has diminished beyond a useable state.
To prevent this message from displaying every time you use the projector, please follow the steps below. This can be done with a remote if you have one for the projector or by using the arrow buttons on projector itself.
NOTE: If you are not comfortable performing these steps, please reply to this work order email to reopen the ticket and someone from the Tech Dept will take care of it when time permits.
Reset the lamp timer using the projector's menus:
- Press the Menu button on the remote control or on the projector's control panel. You see the main menu.
Use the buttons on the remote control (or the arrow buttons
on the projector) to highlight Reset, then press Enter.
You see this screen:
- Select Reset Lamp Hours and press Enter
- When you see the prompt, select Yes and press Enter
- When you're finished, press Esc or Menu to exit the Menu system.
