Hold the volume button down on the t.v. & the split button on the remote at the same time for about 8 to 10 seconds.The t.v. tech. did this with my panasonic 61lcx65. Also I had 2 fairly large red / orange & 1 blue spots on the screen which I thought were a result of the bulb being bad , but the tech. attached a device he called an eeprom jig & it reset the chip ? Now the picture is like new again.

How to reset the lamp timer for Panasonic DLP TVs.


When you replace the lamp on a Panasonic DLP or LCD TV you will need to reset the lamp timer to zero for the TV to reset the lamp timer and extinguish the change lamp indicator.

There are two methods used depending on which model TV you have. The older units use the first method and newer units use the second method. You can tell which method you need to use by whether you have a PIP and/or SPLIT button on your remote. If you have them use the first method, if you don't use the second method.

Method number 1 (for older units):

Follow the procedure below. You use either PIP or SPLIT button depending on whether your remote has SPLIT or not. Some do not.

Perform lamp timer reset only when the lamp has been replaced. The idea is to know when to replace the lamp before the end of it's life when it could explode or short out causing a hazadous condition. If you reset the lamp circuit at any other time the replace lamp warning will not come on at the recommended interval.

Be sure the power cord is plugged into a properly grounded wall outlet.
Then, press the POWER button on the projection display or the remote control to turn the unit on.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the
PIP or SPLIT button on the remote control at same time for more than 5 seconds.

If your remote does not have a split button you use PIP, if it has a split button, you would use SPLIT.

When reset procedure is complete, the screen on the TV will indicate that the lamp has been reset. When lamp time reset is finished, the LAMP indicator goes out.

Method number 2 (for newer units):

Press volume down on the TV and the zero button on the remote at the same time for longer than 5 seconds and it will reset the lamp to zero.

These procedures should reset your lamp timer and you will be good until the current lamp fails or the change lamp indicator illuminates again signalling that it is time to replace the lamp. Three to six years on average depending on how much you run the unit per day. Do not ignore the indicator. Change the lamp immediately to avoid further damage and expense or worse.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

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

TY-LA1001-K I replaced the lamp and didnt restet


I have searched and searched on how to reset the timer. Most solutions say you have to press and hold the volume down button on the tv while also holding down the zero button on the remote, or the pip or split button on the remote until the screen display reads that the timer has been reset to zero or the lamp and power button both flash.

I have tried every combination and cannot seem to reset my lamp timer. If you figure it out, please share it with us!! I'm frustrated and can't get it to work!!

How do you reset the timer on the lamp without a PIP button on the remote


Howdy,
To reset your Panasonic Lamp Time:
ø Press and hold these buttons for (at least) 5 seconds:
ø Volume Down button (on TV Panel).
ø AND ACTION Button (on remote).

As the remote gets older the ACTION button may not respond unless you press the button dead center and not at an angle.

Thanks for using FIXYA, BIG IRISH.

Reset hour meter for replaced lamp


push and hold the PIP (same as play) button in the remote control
push and hold the menu button on the front panel of the tv.
Do both actions simultaneously. Of course you have to be close to the tv to do this: pointing with the remote at the sensor AND holding the menu button of the tv panel.
Do this for some seconds and the screen is going to tell you the timer was reset sucesfull and ask you to push exit in the remote control to finish
