I replaced a lamp on a Zenith Projection LCD TV model # D52wlcd. The new bulb is working fine. However, the end of bulb life indicator light ( orange ) would not go off. Any advise on how to reset the timer to '0' would be greatly appreciated. The orange light is a bit annoying to see. Frazer


Resetting the lamp time
After pressing the "?" key on the remote control in Stand-By mode, press the "9876"
and press the "OK" button.
And then three LED in the front is stop after flashing for a moment.* Lamp Life Time Confirmation
1. Method1 : Enter ADJ mode with using the remote control. You can be confirmed
because " Lamp Life Time XX hr" is appeared.
2. Method2 : With using the remote control offered to consumer if you press the
menu button continuously, OSD menus will disappear then press the "9876" and
press the "OK" button to enter ADJ mode you can see "Lamp Life Time XX hr"

My 42e2000 just said "lamp at end of projected life". I have had this TV for several years, have had it isf calibrated 3 times (the last time was 1 month ago). At that point, the technician said everything looked good. My question is this: am I safe to wait a month to replace the lamp? Can I just replace the bulb or do I have to replace the entire thing? Any help is appreciated.
