Lamp Time Reset for Samsung TVs

This is a quick reference guide to show you how to reset your
Samsung DLP TV’s lamp hour meter or hour counter.
Resetting the counter is a very simple procedure.


Begin with the TV powered off


Point your remote towards your TV


Press:
Mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power


Your TV set should now say “Loading Factory”


Browse down to “Option” then press Enter
(or the right cursor button)


NOTE:
The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. I think that’s a better way to do it.. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you’re having difficulty with the ENTER button

To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your
TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterward!)

I have a Samsung DLP HLS 5086 W that is shutting down after a couple of minutes. The color wheel and lamp were both replaced a little over a year ago. The lamp is a Phillips, and the color wheel is OEM. I am getting all 3 lights on the front panel, and when they disappear I hear a high pitched "buzz" or "whine" intermittently for lack of a better description of the sound. Any thoughts?


Hope this helps:

Resetting the counter Once you have installed your OEM replacement lamp, resetting the counter is a very simple procedure:
• Begin with the TV powered off.
• Point your remote towards your TV.
• Press:
• Menu + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.
• Your TV set should now say "Loading Factory".
• Browse down to "Option" then press Enter (or the right cursor button).
To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterward!).
NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you're having difficulty with the ENTER button.
