Most Panasonic lamp driven TV's use either the PIP or SPLIT button on the remote control pressed simultaneously with the VOLUME down on the TV. These two buttons must be held in that position for more than 6 seconds then a box should appear on the screen letting you know the timer was reset to zero. The instructions usually come with the lamp as they are not in the owners manual. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

SOURCE: How to reset the DLP TV Lamp Counter

Press and HOLD the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV
Press and HOLD the MUTE button on the REMOTE
(hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen)
Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV
We suggest writing your lamp hours on a peice of masking tape and taping it to the back the TV for future reference.
To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrove buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter For certain models, you might have to tweak these steps slightly…offer your inputs!

Procedure to reset Panasonic TVs


If you have replaced the lamp in your Panasonic DLP TV and are having problems such as a message on the screen telling you to reset the lamp timer or the unit not powering up, you probably need to reset the lamp counter. All DLP and LCD TVs which have high intensity lamps generally need to have a lamp timer circuit reset after a lamp change. The manufacturers want to give you a heads up prior to having a catastrophic event such as a lamp exploding which could cause a fire as well as other damage.

Therefore in many cases until you reset the lamp timer the unit will not operate or it will keep reminding you to reset the lamp timer which is very obnoxious. This is not a hard procedure but you will need the original factory remote to accomplish the task. Generally the procedure involves pushing a sequence of buttons.

I recommend placing a piece of masking tape on the rear of the TV with the date the lamp was changed to make it easy to remember when the next lamp change will be necessary. Also you could purchase a lamp now to avoid paying more in the future.

The following procedure should solve your problem:

1. Turn on the television.
2. Press the 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 reset your lamp timer.

How to reset the lamp timer for Panasonic DLP TVs.


When you replace the lamp on a Panasonic DLP or LCD TV you will need to reset the lamp timer to zero for the TV to reset the lamp timer and extinguish the change lamp indicator.

There are two methods used depending on which model TV you have. The older units use the first method and newer units use the second method. You can tell which method you need to use by whether you have a PIP and/or SPLIT button on your remote. If you have them use the first method, if you don't use the second method.

Method number 1 (for older units):

Follow the procedure below. You use either PIP or SPLIT button depending on whether your remote has SPLIT or not. Some do not.

Perform lamp timer reset only when the lamp has been replaced. The idea is to know when to replace the lamp before the end of it's life when it could explode or short out causing a hazadous condition. If you reset the lamp circuit at any other time the replace lamp warning will not come on at the recommended interval.

Be sure the power cord is plugged into a properly grounded wall outlet.
Then, press the POWER button on the projection display or the remote control to turn the unit on.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the
PIP or SPLIT button on the remote control at same time for more than 5 seconds.

If your remote does not have a split button you use PIP, if it has a split button, you would use SPLIT.

When reset procedure is complete, the screen on the TV will indicate that the lamp has been reset. When lamp time reset is finished, the LAMP indicator goes out.

Method number 2 (for newer units):

Press volume down on the TV and the zero button on the remote at the same time for longer than 5 seconds and it will reset the lamp to zero.

These procedures should reset your lamp timer and you will be good until the current lamp fails or the change lamp indicator illuminates again signalling that it is time to replace the lamp. Three to six years on average depending on how much you run the unit per day. Do not ignore the indicator. Change the lamp immediately to avoid further damage and expense or worse.

47in dlp tv that turns on then shuts back off


The lamp may be bad or a fan has stopped running. Remove your lamp and see if it's shattered or dark and gray in the center. Also your lamp timer could have reached it's limit. check your manual to see how you can reset the timer only if the lamp looks clear.
