Step 1: Be prepared with the right lamp

Keep your Hitachi CP-X268A projector working at its best by always using authentic OEM Lamps. Look for the seal of approval before purchasing so you can be sure to be getting the real deal. It can be confusing to shop on line and get the right lamp. Your key to knowing if the lamp is authentic or not: If the price seems to be too good to be true, it’s a copycat lamp. These counterfiet lamp just don’t deliver and have many problems, which make them more expensive in the end.

Why avoid generics:

Keep your projector working and go with an authentic Hitachi DT00751 CPX260 lamp.

Step 2: Watch for end of life

Your Hitachi CP-X268A projector uses the Hitachi DT00751 CPX260 lamp and when it reaches end of life, there will be several tell tale signs:

  • Hitachi CP-X268A Lamp Indicator light will start flashing red.
  • Color tone on the screen may also appear weak or washed out.
  • Picture has poor colour quality.
  • You may notice the Hitachi DT00751 starts to go dark after being used for long period of time.

The Hitachi DT00751 CPX260 lamp has a finite life and trying to force it beyond its normal lamp life can damage your Hitachi CP-X268A.

Ste 3: Installing the Hitachi DT00751 CPX268 lamp

Before installing a new lamp be sure to turn off the Hitachi CP-X268A and let the projector cool down for at least one hour. This projector operates using high temperatures and there is a risk of you burning yourself if the projector has not cooled.

  • Turn off the projector by pressing the power button.
  • Unplug any power cords.

  • Slide the Hitachi CP-X265A lamp cover back in place and firmly fasten the lamp cover a screw.
  • Turn the projector on and reset the lamp time.

 

Resetting the Hitachi CP-X268A lamp timer
