Re: Bulb or Lamp Unit Timer

"paison" was correct and his solution did work for me. Make sure you first select TV on your remote. Now hold down the dvd/vcr button at the bottom of your remote while also holding down the "volume down" button on th front of the TV. Hold until a "Blue Reset Menu" appears on the screen and say the timer has been reset. Noe just follow the on screen instructions.

It sounds that you wish to know how to reset the lamp time after lamp replacement. If so, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Flip card, can be selected by the drop-down list, by the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name / model number / IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window. Lamp replacement procedure, and lamp time reset details are given.

I replaced the bulb in my Sony TV . when it powers on there is a warning that the bulb is about to expire

With the model number either Google "lamp timer reset" or call Sony; note that the lamp timer reset should be in the owner manual and is done with the Sony remote control.

I have a 2006 Thomson/RCA ModelM50WH72S TV that we have replaced the lamp, it still does not work and a technician has told us that we need a light engine for it. How can we locate one?

have the same tv,, power light blinks, book said it was bulb, bulb didnt fix it,took it to tv repair shop, they found a bad capacitor, replaced it with a higher heat range capacitor, this capacitor was on the power board for the lamp circuit, repair was $200, not bad since i paid $1500 for the tv, other than that issue, just replaced a couple of lamps

I have ordered a ty-la1000 lamp for my panasonic pt50lc14 tv. the manual gives no information as to how to rset the lamp timer. please advise

I noticed that the manual on the below website has more information and instructions than the one that came with the tv on how to replace the bulb and reset the lamp timer, etc. Easy to do but they told me two years ago I had to have it done by a technician which costed me $300.

Lamp blew out 2 weeks before it's scheduled time and was replaced. now light is on telling us to change bulb. How do we reset to get the red light to go out? It's a Panasonic 52'' lamp #TYLA1001

press vol+ and up-arrow key both at the same time for 7 seconds. follow the command prompts to reset the timer for your new bulb.

Also please specify the model number of your tv its very important if you want accurate information.

My TV set keeps turning off by itself.

Since the lamp is the original I suggest replacing the lamp. There is a Black Lamp Door in the rear of the set. Remove the Door and then the Lamp Exhaust Duct. Then you will see the lamp. Loosen the one screw on the Lamp and pull straight out. Now look at the front of the lamp. If you see shattered glass in side then you have a bad lamp. Note: Sometimes there will be no shattered glass and the Lamp can still be bad. When you have the new lamp becareful not to touch the front glass, not even once. Reinstall the new Lamp in the reverse order and make sure that you reinstall the Lamp Door and tighten the screw as the tv will not work with the door missing. The Lamp part# is BP96-01472A.
