    NEC VT58 Lamp Reset

    Hi All

    Does anyone know how to reset the lamp hours without the remote control?

    Is there a set sequence on the projector I have to press and hold the buttons?

    Regards

    Fozzy

    Menu button on projector I think then its the bottom option or maybe the one above and it then has choices for clearing the lamp and the filter usage.

    Thanx Wes , Sorry i never made myself clear... rushing around..

    I have a Red – Continuous light on “Lamp” Will not turn on to clear lamp hour usage

    I have read the manual and it states, Press and hold the “Help” button on the remote for 10 seconds to reset the lamp hours. The only problem is…. I don’t have the remote? We seem to have lost it.

    So can it be don't without the Remote control?

    This used to work on older version dont know about vt58 though up, right, down, left.

    I'll have a look around I think I have an old controller somewhere for the VT58.

    Just to update you

    I have recieved an email back from NEC and it states


    "there is no other way to reset the projector. You need the remote control.
    Please contact our servicepartner to get a new remote control.

    I'll have to look round this one has been in a drawer in the server room for months however we've had three NEC projectors blow up (after a long and very useful life, or over use in unsuitable environments ) so I'll have to look around for the other two if I can find them that is.

    No trouble we've got around 30 NEC projectors from the old 460 to the NP300?(something like that) all very good and only the vt460 has a different controller so if u do lose one dont hesitate to ask!

    I know this thread has been dead for a while but I'm desperate to get my hands on a remote for the NEC vt460. In my absence a colleague has bought and installed a new bulb without realising that the remote has been missing for some time! Any help is much appreciated. I noticed you said that you had some spares you wouldn't mind parting with Wes? is that still the case?

    We bought our replacements from Amazon, they are cheaper and do the same thing.

    We have bought a replacement like the ones sold on amazon and they are fine for switching the unit on/off but they don't have the 'help' button needed to reset the lamp hours in standby mode. Thanks for the response though!

    Rad - can I ask: did you buy a replacement for the VT460 by any chance?
