Do I need to reset the lamp timer on my BenQ MP515?

Solved 1 Answers 70 Views BenQ

I ask because I have already replaced the 2950 hours old with a new OEM lamp but I just got the "3000 hours" warning. Thanks

Hey Yosh, yes you do have to reset the lamp timer following a lamp change or replacement. Follow the steps here to carry out the timer reset.

  1. After the start-up logo, press Menu/Exit and then press / SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced menu.
  2. Press to highlight Lamp Settings and press Mode/Enter. The Lamp Settings page displays.
  3. Press to highlight Reset Lamp Timer and press Mode/Enter. A warning message displays asking if you want to reset the lamp timer. Highlight Reset and press Mode/Enter. The lamp time will be reset to "0".

Warning: Do not reset if the lamp is not new or replaced as this could cause damage.
