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

There is no light coming out of the projector, I have replaced the bulb and still no luck

Welcome to Fixya!

Have you placed the bulb right , i mean if you shake it really hard you may damage it , moreover check the position of the bulb if it stays fitted ,

More over Your lamp has a warranty typically. No matter what, don't expect any more than 1,000 hours out of a projector lamp, and budget accordingly. I had my first lamp go, in low power, when rated for 5,000 hours - at 1,200 hours

This is the way projectors work, and is unfortunate, but ignore the owners manual, because if the lamp was really going to last 2,000 hours they would WARRANTY it for 2,000 hours. The fact that they don't clearly show that how much it lasts for.

Now how can you prolong the lamp life.

i believe most home use projector's lamp's life can over 2K hours at lab.
but the environment should be as:

1. no use it over 3 hours each time.
2. keep the room degree at 20-25C
3. keep your room very clean.
4. adjust projector's fan speed to fast

Do comment if it helped you in any matter

I have recently bought a lg rear projection tv on stand it has just started to show signs of double writing with red and green colour is that the sign of the lamp going or could you let me no of something...

Sounds like the lamp in the projector is staring to go. Projector lamps tend to go greenish when the bulb is starting to go. Unfortuntally they can be quite expensive to replace but they do last for around 10,000 hours.

Projection lamp nearing end of life replace lamp still coming on

Along with the instructions for the lamp installation, you should have revceived instructions on how to reset the lamp counter. If not, this operation is listed in the owner's manual. If you can not locate that manual, please confirm your model number and I will post the instructions. Since the counter has not been reset, the TV will continue to show the "error" message.
