The lamp that you need can be bought from amazon at the following link

To find and replace it, please follow the directions below
Step 1
Shut off the power to the Panasonic projection TV and wait 1 to 3 minutes until you hear the cooling fan stop. Then unplug the TV. Don't unplug the TV before you hear the fan stop or else it might damage the set.

Step 2
Wait until the lamp has a chance to cool down. It may be quite hot after it has been used. Panasonic recommends leaving the TV off and unplugged for at least an hour before swapping out the lamp (this can also keep you from being hurt by having it discharge).

Step 3
Open the cover on the front of the TV and turn the lamp cover knob to the "open" position (usually by turning it to the left). Then pull the lamp cover itself out and down to access the lamp itself.

Step 4
Turn the lamp unit knob (not to be confused with the lamp cover knob) to the "open" position (usually by turning it to the left). Pull the old lamp free of the TV by grasping the lamp unit knob and carefully pulling on it.

Step 5
Slide the new lamp into place, making sure that it's facing the same direction and in the same position as the old lamp.

Step 6
Turn the lamp unit knob to the "lock" position, usually by turning it to the right. You should here a clicking noise to tell you that it's locked.

Step 7
Shut the lamp cover and turn the lamp cover knob to the "lock" position, usually by turning it to the right, Then close the front cover on the Panasonic projection TV.

Step 8
Reset the lamp time (Please see the two paragraphs below), then turn the TV on. If the screen doesn't come on, you may not have secured the lamp properly. Double check the cover knob and lamp knob to make sure they are both locked.

To reset the lamp timer you have to have your TV remote (not a universal - the original remote). Turn the TV on and wait for the lamp timer reset message to disappear or push Exit on the remote (or any button similar to exit, depending on the model).

Then, simultaneously press and hold the VOL- button on the TV and the PIP button on the remote at the same time (usually near the bottom left of the remote). On some models it is the SPLIT button instead.

Let me know how this turns out.

How to reset the hour meter on a panasonic pt-52lcx16

Panasonic Projection TV Lamp Timer Reset
Your lamp will probably last a lot longer than the TV thinks it should. This procedure will reset the lamp timer so you don't have to look at that annoying message every time you turn your tv on. Remember that the "lamp" indicator light on the lower left of the set will stay on until the lamp is actually replaced. I had to buy a replacement lamp to get this information, could not find it anywhere for these model numbers.
Press the volume down button on the projection display and hold down the zero button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds. When the reset procedure is complete, a message will display that the lamp timer was reset to zero.
This procedure will work for Panasonic models: PT-52LCX66 , PT-56LCX66 , PT-61LCX66 , PT-52LCX16 , PT-56LCX16 , PT-61LCX16

Panasonic tv model pt-50LC14 will not turn on

First, turn off the tv. Once the fan has stopped, unplug the tv. Remove the front cover from it latches (takes up most of the area below the screen). On the left is the lamp door. One screw holds the door. Remove lamp door. Looks like one screw holds the lamp assembly. Loosen screw and remove lamp. Lamp may be hot if the set was running before you began the lamp replacement.

If you have a new lamp assembly, reverse the process. If a new lamp without assembly, change lamps. CAREFUL. No fingerprints on the new lamp. The oil in the fingerprints will shorten the life of the new lamp.

Reset lamp hours in the menu when done.

Lamp meter on Panasonic PT-40LC12 ?

I just had my picture go out two weeks ago. I took it to a local tv repair shop. They replaced the thermal fuse. I also had a spare lamp so they also replaced that. I'm not sure if they reset the lamp meter but this is what I found surfing around...try at your own risk. I'm going to try this when I go home tonight.

Good Luck...

Press the power button to turn the unit on.
While pressing the Vol-(volume down) button on the projection display,
hold down the PIP button on the remote control at the same time for more
than 5 seconds. When the reset procedure is complete the following message
will appear on the screen. "Lamp time was reset to 0".
