Read how to reset the timer and have made notes but I also need to replace the lamp according to the tv screen. Where can I purchase the lamp at a reasonable price or is it better to just get rid of tv? Thanks,

Re: Need a new lamp
If the la,p still works, just reset the timer and wait for the lamp to go bad, Which it will do eventually, but lets not fix it if it ain't broke. In the mean time you can find that lamp online anywhere and by the time you have to buy one it may be a little cheaper. If this helps please take a few minutes to rate the response. Thanks

Turn on the television after replacing your television's projection lamp with a new unit. If a dialog box displays on the screen asking you to reset the lamp timer, use your remote control's "Arrow" buttons, highlight "Yes" and press "Enter." If the dialog box does not appear on your screen after turning your television on, proceed to the next steps.
Turn on the television, then press the "Menu" button on your control. Navigate to the "Setup" menu, press "Enter" and choose "Low Power" from the menu options displayed on the screen. Press the "Exit" button on your remote control and turn off the television.
Repeat the first step to reset your television's lamp timer. If your television screen is unable to produce a picture after replacing the projection lamp, press the "<", ">" and "Power" buttons on your remote control at the same time to reset the lamp timer.
If you have replaced the lamp in your Panasonic DLP TV and are having problems such as a message on the screen telling you to reset the lamp timer or the unit not powering up, you probably need to reset the lamp counter. All DLP and LCD TVs which have high intensity lamps generally need to have a lamp timer circuit reset after a lamp change. The manufacturers want to give you a heads up prior to having a catastrophic event such as a lamp exploding which could cause a fire as well as other damage.
Therefore in many cases until you reset the lamp timer the unit will not operate or it will keep reminding you to reset the lamp timer which is very obnoxious. This is not a hard procedure but you will need the original factory remote to accomplish the task. Generally the procedure involves pushing a sequence of buttons.
I recommend placing a piece of masking tape on the rear of the TV with the date the lamp was changed to make it easy to remember when the next lamp change will be necessary. Also you could purchase a lamp now to avoid paying more in the future.
The following procedure should solve your problem:
1. Turn on the television. 2. Press the down button on the TV display (not the remote) 3. While pressing the volume button, press the "split" or "PIP" button on the remote.
This should reset your lamp timer.

The lamp time reset will be or should be in the owner manual---Google the model number with keywords "lamp install" with the model number and the "manual" with the model number---Google can be a great help.
you need to go into the TV's menu and select replace projection lamp menu and follow the on screen instructions to verify and reset the lamp timer, (its in your instruction manual , in detail) , i am awaiting a new phillips bulb for mine, as i always use the original enclosure, no need for extra plastic, and its easy to complete the swap, and reset hours via TV menu
Hi, Turn On tv. Press and hold Volume Down button on TV Front and PIP/ SPLIT button on Remote at same time for 6 Seconds to reset Lamp Timer and tv will show you timer reset message screen. Hope this info will help you. Thanks.
According to the lamp manual you just need to power the set on with the remote and then press (and hold) the Vol - button on the front of the set, While holding the Vol- button on the front of the set press and hold the PIP button on the remote. HOLD both for more than 5 seconds or until the lamp timer has been reset to 0 appears on the screen.

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.
After replacement of lamp, turn on TV, press and hold Volume Down button on TV front and press and hold Split/ Play button on TV remote at same time for 6 seconds. That will reset lamp timer and confirmation display will come at TV screen. Above info are also available in original Panasonic replacement Lamp box.
