Lamp timer How do I reset my lamp timer on my panasonic PT-52LCX15 DLP

Posted by on

  • stevebert Jan 28, 2009

    I had the lamp replaced several months ago, but now the television is saying that the lamp needs to be replaced and the timer reset.  Is it possible that the technician replaced the lamp but failed to reset the timer or is the new lamp just going bad somehow.  There no indication that the lamp is failing, the TV turns on in the normal amount of warm-up time.  I'm just wondering if this is a bogus message, like the 60,000 mile "check engine" light in cars.

How to reset the hour meter on a panasonic pt-52lcx16


Panasonic Projection TV Lamp Timer Reset
Your lamp will probably last a lot longer than the TV thinks it should. This procedure will reset the lamp timer so you don't have to look at that annoying message every time you turn your tv on. Remember that the "lamp" indicator light on the lower left of the set will stay on until the lamp is actually replaced. I had to buy a replacement lamp to get this information, could not find it anywhere for these model numbers.
Press the volume down button on the projection display and hold down the zero button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds. When the reset procedure is complete, a message will display that the lamp timer was reset to zero.
This procedure will work for Panasonic models: PT-52LCX66 , PT-56LCX66 , PT-61LCX66 , PT-52LCX16 , PT-56LCX16 , PT-61LCX16

How do you reset the bulb life counter after you put in a new bulb?


For models:
PT-44LCX65/PT-52LCX65/PT-61LCX65/PT-52LCX15.
1) Make sure the TV is on.
2) While pressing and holding down VOL DOWN button on the TV, press and hold down the SPLIT DVD/VCR CH UP button on the remote until a message appears on the screen that the lamp timer has been reset. If this does not work, use SPLIT DVD/VCR CH DOWN instead.

Good luck

47in dlp tv that turns on then shuts back off


The lamp may be bad or a fan has stopped running. Remove your lamp and see if it's shattered or dark and gray in the center. Also your lamp timer could have reached it's limit. check your manual to see how you can reset the timer only if the lamp looks clear.

How do I reset the lamp timer on my panasonic dlp tv?


Most Panasonic lamp driven TV's use either the PIP or SPLIT button on the remote control pressed simultaneously with the VOLUME down on the TV. These two buttons must be held in that position for more than 6 seconds then a box should appear on the screen letting you know the timer was reset to zero. The instructions usually come with the lamp as they are not in the owners manual. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

I have a Panisonic pt-52lcx66 that won't come on.


OK AT THIS POINT IT COULD BE A BALLAST ISSUE IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S NOT SENDING THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF VOLTAGE TO THE LAMP TO TURN IT ON, AT THE START IT NEEDS A KICK OF 15,000VOLTS TO TURN ON AND IF THE BALLAST IS WORKING CORRECTLY THIS WILL HAPPEN
HOPE THIS HELPS
