The only way to reset the lamp timer is with the LG programmer remote, however resetting the lamp timer does not affect the picture quality. If you need a part # for the remote let me know. Maybe you can find an auth. service center who will let you use the remote. If they do, simply power the unit up and when running hit the instart button on the programmer remote and after the menu comes on the screen simply hit the offstart button. The unit will shut of and when you power it again the lamp timer will be reset.

    As I stated the first time, resetting the lamp hours is not going to improve picture quality....... The only time I see a dim picture the lamp is bad. Did you use an OEM lamp or a knock off lamp. Many sources are selling knock off lamps that are poor quality. If the lamp is not the problem then there is no simple answer.

The color is really dim,


i have a wd62528 62" dlp hdtv that shows a picture but very dim. I have tried numerous things including factory reset and checking the lamp. I started to get a new lamp but was told if i have a dim picture getting a new lamp will do nothing. However, Mitsubishi support said that if i have a dim picture but was not continuing to get worse or darker, then they were 100% sure i just needed a new lamp. I'm confused. Will a new lamp solve my problem or no. i would just buy and try but it is very costly. please help

Service Remote


Sorry, I'm not a problem solver. I had ask a question myself several month's ago that went unanswered. My tv is a LG RU44SZ63D. Through my own diligence I discovered that the special set-up remote for accessing the service menu is a 105-201M. I have no idea how many different model tv's this remote works on. I purchased the remote from www.newremotecontrols.com. It "IS" a tool and unfortunately doesn't come with instructions...

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.
