    Dear Ladywinn,

    I do not understand the first part of your soultion "Reset lamp timer plug in set and it will go into stand-by-mode"

    do I not turn the tv on?

    do i need a special remote or will the stock one work? thanks!

  • mjpalm Dec 09, 2008

    Thanks LadyWinn but I am doing something wrong.

    1. I installed the new lamp bulb.

    2. I plugged in my Zenith D52WLCD. Only the Red Light is on (the tv power is off)

    3. I pressed and released the ? button.

    4. I pressed and released 9,8,7,6 and then pressed released Enter (i do not have an OK button)

    5. None of the 3 lights flashed, and the tv still powers off as if the timer has not been reset...

    Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

    the fan and the tv comes on for approximately 1 minute, then shuts off. then, the red lamp light flashes which supposedly indicates that the lamp is bad and that the timer must be reset.

    was I following your procedure to reset correctly of a zenith d52wlcd?


  • mjpalm Dec 10, 2008

    the fan runs, but the tv shuts off because the lamp timer needs to be reset - tv shuts off, and lamp indicator light flashes.

    was I correctly following your procedure to reset the lamp of a zenith d52wlcd?

  • mjpalm Dec 10, 2008

    Just to clarify my problem:

    I turn the set on. It runs perfeclty for about a minute. It then shuts off. The Lamp Indicator Light flashes red - which is supposed to mean the bulb needs replacement and the timer needs reset. I replaced the bulb, but cant get the timer to reset.

    thank you for all your help and please advise.

    can anyone help? I have tried ladywinn's solution with no success

  • mjpalm Feb 12, 2009

    ok, i have also replaced the fan, as well as installed a new bulb. but i still cannot get the lamp timer reset window to appear.

    please help

  • mjpalm Feb 14, 2009

    my remote has a ? and 9,8,7,6 buttons. It has an Enter button, but not an OK button. Is having one with an OK button the only solution?

  • mjpalm Mar 08, 2009

    ladywinn, i replaced the fan. i also bought the service remote . what do i do with the service remote?

  • mjpalm Mar 08, 2009

    ok, i got into the service menu by pressing in-start. then i press lamp timer and enter. it shows 0. how do i change it from 0???

  • mjpalm Mar 08, 2009

    in case anyone else reads this:

    1. use the remote 105-201m

    2. press in-start

    3. press 6, enter

    4. press 0

    5. then, put in new bulb.

    6. then smile you did not pay for a service call

    Pull back off watch to see if fan stops running ,if it runs for awhile then stops it is bad.

    Fan must keep running in order for set to turn on and for lamp to work and come on itself.

    Have you fixed your tv Yet? IF NOT there is a fan located under the light engine if it is not running or working all you will get is RED light on TV.

E44W46LCD Lamp Timer Reset

To reset the lamp timer, hold the "enter" button on the tv and the "mute" button on the remote at the same time. Once the menu pops up, hit the right arrow on the remote and confirm the reset.

I would guess that's it's a little too late for this answer now, but for future reference... ;-)

Zenith d52wlcd

Yes it can definately be reset with the service remote, all the newer models will reset with the mute and enter simultaneous buttons. I would try to call a local service center and see if they have the remote and how much they'd charge to come reset it. I know we charge a lot to come out, but if you brought the tv in (i know not the prefered method) we would just quick reset it for free. The mute + enter lamp reset is in no service manuals or training guides so I'm not positive it will work but I'd try it a few more times because I'm pretty sure it works on the wlcd models.

I just found the solution on another model of Zenith TV. Hold the enter button down on the TV and the MUTE button on the remote. In approx. 5-7 seconds a screen will pop up asking if you want to reset the lamp timer. Hit the bullseye button in the middle of the arrows and it will reset. Worked perfectly.

How do I reset the replace lamp message

Do you have a picture? If so the only way to reset this unit is to get a Zenith programmer remote. With this remote you can get into the service menu and reset the lamp timer and that will reset the unit.
