    i may be mistaken, it might be mute on the remote and menu on the front panel. either way you have to hold both simultaneously for 5 seconds to get the reset menu. if this does not work, you may need an LG service remote

    make sure that your remote is pointed at the tv (either into the screen or at the remote sensor on front panel)

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.


Resetting Your Samsung DLP Lamp Hour Meter Counter or Lamp Timer DLP Lamp...

Tip

Lamp Reset Procedure for Samsung Televisions.


You have replaced your lamp and the set is working fine but the 'replace lamp light' is still on or the lamp light is blinking. What do you do?

This is an important procedure because you need to know when it is time to replace the lamp again. If you do not reset the timer you may run the risk of having the lamp explode, because it was not replaced in time. This can be dangerous and could cause a fire.

Manufacturers have lamp timers built in to their TVs so that when it gets close to time to replaced the lamp you are made aware of this and if you heed the warning you may save money by not damaging other components such as the ballast. If you do not heed the warning, you are on your own and deserve whatever happens.

To reset first make sure the TV is powered off.

1) Point your remote towards your TV.

2) Press MUTE + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.

3) Your TV should now say "Loading Factory".

4) Browse down to "Option" then press ENTER (or the right cursor button).

Note: The MUTE + 1 + 8 + 2 buttons need 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 acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you're having difficulty with the ENTER button.

5) To exit the service menu press the EXIT button or just turn the TV off. Do not turn on the TV immediately after. Let it off for several minutes.

This should reset your counter and you will be ready to enjoy your TV for about another 8000 hours.

Hello, i would like to know if resetting the lamp timer on an LG MW60sz12 will allow you to get more time out of it?? also if it is possible, how do you reset it???


Hi there,

Quick answer = NO.

As projection TV lamps generally have a life somewhere between 3,000 - 6,000hrs (depending on lamp quality/type), the lamp timer is simply there to assist you in determining when the current lamp is due for replacement.

Resetting the lamp timer has no effect what so ever, on the longevity of the lamp.

The Lamp Timer Reset function is hidden within the Service menu and as such, technicians are usually the only ones who are authorised to reset the timer.

However, the following procedure has been known to reset LG lamp timers:

1. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the TV front panel.
2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.
4. Release the remote MENU button first, then the TV MENU button.
5. While holding that button, press and hold the MUTE button on the remote.
6. Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV front panel.
7. Hold both buttons until the Lamp Life Hours show up on your TV screen.
8. Release the MUTE button first, then the ENTER button on the TV front panel.
9. Make a note of the lamp hours if you want.
10. To reset the lamp hours, press the SELECT button (the one between the four arrow keys with two concentric circles on it) on your remote.
11. It will ask you to confirm the reset--press SELECT again to confirm

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... ;-)

Replacing lamp in rear projection tv


To do this, press the ENTER button on the TV and the MUTE button on the remote at the same time. After 5 seconds the screen should come up and it will read "Lamp use time...Total lamp use time ....lamp reset" Press the center button on your remote (the circle button right in the middle of the four directional buttons) and you will be reset to -0- again. Your orange light should now be off.

How do I reset the replace lamp message


found this on Justanswer.com and worked perfectly for me

1- Press and hold the MENU button on the TV.
2- Press and hold the MENU button on your REMOTE (hold both these until the service menu pops up 5-10 secs max).
3 - Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.
4- Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV.
5- Press and hold the MUTE button on the REMOTE (hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen).
6- Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.
7- To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrow buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter.

The problem is that it require the screen to work. That mean that the timer by itself probably can't keep the TV from powering up. I would verify how the lamp was installed (perhaps retrying the previous lamp).

Does any led flashing with a pattern in time occur when you try to power it on?

About the "?" button, i don't see that on the remote.
