This would be done in the TV's onscreen menu. Since every TV has a different OSD, my advice would be to Google the TV's model number along with User Manual as it would explain how. Most manufacturers provide an electronic manual for their products on their website, just find the model number from the back of the TV.

I have a Mitsubishi 60inch 60737 replaced the bulb last month.now it keeps cutting off,cleaned the filter before.someone said to reset bulb timer,how do I reset it.


The Lamp timer will not cause it to shut down. The timer should have been reset when you first turned the TV on after replacing the bulb. Make sure your bulb is an Osram brand bulb. If not, then you do not want to use it as it may not be very good.

Replaced bulb last nite, green light blinks for a min. then it worked! watched a few min.turned on this morning blinking.... wont stop green blink. last nite when i changed bulb tv said change bulb reset...


Many projectors use a lamp hour timer for predicting bulb life so they can give you fair warning of impending failure. Since a bulb may be removed and reinstalled because it is still working or another used lamp installed, the timer is not automatically reset to zero when the lamp is replaced. I surmise your set is complaining because the timer was not reset or the time verified when you changed the bulb.

To fix the problem, buy or borrow a remote control; a universal remote control with a menu button may work. (If you borrow a universal remote from a friend, be sure to record the code for your friend's TV first so you can set it back before returning it.)

You could probably get back into the timer reset menu by removing the new lamp and reinstalling it. Caution: follow the directions on page 68 of the user's manual or the sheet that came with the bulb - let the set cool for an hour first, unplug, and wear gloves when handling the bulb since skin oil can cause discoloration and possibly an explosion when the bulb gets hot. You can download the user's manual from Panasonic's support page for this set.

If you can edit the timer hours instead of just resetting, you may want to set it for the number of hours the new bulb has been used.

It is likely that you can get into the lamp timer menu if the set is in service mode, but the user's manual doesn't tell how to get there (I don't have that info either - it's in the service manual, which may be available online from a third party for a price). Usually it is something like holding a volume or channel button on the front of the TV while turning it on with the remote control. After that you need the code to switch to the timer menu. If you have problems getting into the timer menu, ask your dealer's service department or try calling the Panasonic help line listed on the bottom of page 68: 1-888-VIEW PTV(843-9788).

I replaced bulb on LG tv but replace bulb light is still on


Its the fuse the is located beside the bulb housing. You need to replace this fuse. Its used almost like a timer. The TV detects a new fuse and blows it at this time it resets the bulb life.

Mitsubishi HC 900 DLP Projection Lamp Shutdown.


Honestly I would try entering the 'Lamp timer reset' code again. Or the button sequence given to reset the lamp timer.
An issue that may be happening is that something may have happened to the lamp ballast power supply also.
Just a thought.
Blessings always,

If the timer has not been reset telling the unit it has a new lamp you will get that message. Call a servicer to find out how to reset the timer if you don't have the owners manual. If the message continues after that you will need to purchace a new lamp. There are problems that accur with some aftermarket lamps.
