You might want to check the light installation to make sure it is seated properly and there is no dust build up around it or the reflector. Have you changed it recently?

If you replace the lamp and reset the lamp timer then that will do it.
For resetting of the timer, see instructions within the lamp box.
Hope that helps.

Okay, so last night my Hitachi 55vs69a starting shutting itself off. I could turn it back on after a few minutes and within an hour or less it would shut off again. This morning it will not turn on at all....

If you bought a cheap non Hitachi lamp that could be bad and look fine.

I would remove the lamp and look at it and reinstall it making sure it is in properly----what was wrong with the old lamp? Did it still work at all?

Replaced main bulb in front but lamp button on front of tv is still blinking and tv won't show picture

The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

  • 2

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    I have the lamp,the tv is still not coming on. Is there something that has to be reset?

    Yes. You will have to reset the lamp hours. It should be in your owners manual.
    Copy and paste this link in your address bar if you don't have the manual:

    I have heard that this may work on your tv

    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.

    if the timer is reset, try cleaning the color wheel. Optoma HD20 Projector Cleaning this video is for an optoma but the color wheel is cleaned the same way in most DLP projectors. Dirty or dusty color wheel sensors cause the projector to shut down and act like its the lamp.
