Here is the procedure,
1. Turn on the television
2. Press the volume 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 solve your problem.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating!!

This is a model that was subject to a massive recall and all were supposed to have been exchanged.
Main issue was it ate lamps alive---problem was in the Ballast the set uses to drive the lamp---when they ran out of Ballasts they devised a kit to fix them--too little and too late as the class action suit was well under way.
I know as our shop was involved in picking them up working or not and delivering a brand new set---Panasonic told us they wanted (they had to) the old sets back (crusher bound) but we could take anything we wanted out of them----had over 100 remotes before it finished not to mention other things.
I do not think it is a reset issue--most likely if you owned the set from new or a long time the Ballast may not have been rebuilt or you just got lucky.
Lamps (Good oem ones) should last on average 2 years or 2,000 hours.
Another possible cause (remotely possible) is puffed up caps on the power board--I post two photos so if you look there you will know what to look for---one is mild and the other an extreme example of bad caps.
Also if the set is dusty inside use air and clean it completely out as if fans run slow from dirt the set may have issues coming on.
I hope this information helps in some way.
