Re: lamp light

To reset lamp timer, I've used an LG service remote# 105-201M. Not sure what the proceedure was in getting the lamp timer reset, but was able to do it with this remote.

Re: lamp light

The light should go out automatically after replacing the lamp. try unplugging the set for 5 minutes then plugging it back in. that should reset it. Let me know if this helps.

I have a 6 yr old Panasonic PT 50 LC13 and I need to know how th reset the lamp. i just replaced the bulb and i cannot get the tv to turn in

To reset the lamp follow the steps below.

Press and hold "Volume down(-)" at the front panel and "TV/Video" on the remote control for more thatn 5 secs in power off condition to activate the Service mode map. You can now reset the lamp.

After that check if the symptoms still there. If yes, let me know the status of the led light(Power, Temp, Lamp) and its color to determine where the fault came from.

I replaced the lamp on my Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA DLP set. How do I reset the timer on the lamp?

I have a Samsung DLP HLN617WX/XAA. After turning off by itself, the three indicator lights were blinking... signifying a defective lamp. I've re-seated the old lamp several times with no change. I bought a new lamp and reset the lamp hours through the "service menu" with no change. My television is still turning itself off and still blinking the same indicator lights. What should I look at, next?

My tv turns on, but there is no picture. The two green lights and one red light are flashing on the button in front. What do I do?

That means that the lamp may be defective and the TV needs service. You can replace the lamp yourself. The code is on the right side of the TV and on the lamp case. Get a replacement using this code from the store where you bought the TV or a Samsung Service Center.

Once you have the correct lamp (the wrong one may damage your TV), make sure your TV has been off for at least 30 minutes (cool down). The cool down will not happen properly if the TV is plugged into anything other than a wall outlet.

Open the lamp case and take out the old lamp and replace with the new one. Do not touch the glass with your hands and do not insert any objects into the case. Do not leave the old lamp near flammable objects or where children can access it.

I hope this helps.

Just baught a new lamp and all that is happening is lamp light...

You will need to reset the lamp counter.
Begin with the TV powered off.
Point your remote towards your TV.
Mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.
Your TV set should now say “Loading Factory”.
Browse down to “Option” then press Enter (or the right cursor button).
NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can subsitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you’re having difficulty with the ENTER button.
To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterwards!).

I have RCA HD50LPW167 DLP TV with NO Sound and NO Audio. The LED blinks when I turn the TV on but that's all it does. Took it to the local RCA authorized repair shop and they told me that the digiital...

Still sounds like a lamp:

TV won’t turn on
• Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there’s a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.
• Make sure the TV is plugged in.
• You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.
• Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or fl ashing
section below for more information.
• When you fi rst plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when power is reapplied to the TV. The TV can only be turned
on after the Power indicator goes off.
• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is “live” by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.
• Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 84.
Remote Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Connections, then Special Features, then
Remote Setup. Choose TV (default).
Power indicator is blinking or fl ashing
If the light blinks 5 times, pauses, and blinks again 5 times, the lamp is trying to turn on. If the TV doesn’t turn on after 5 minutes and
then the light blinks steadily for one minute, one of the following options is possible:
• Lamp door may be open.Face the back of the TV. Locate the door at the bottom of the TV and close it. Turn off the TV and turn
back on. The lamp should turn on.

You can easily replace the lamp yourself by following the lamp replacement instructions. If your TV is still covered by
the warranty, call 1-866-723-6486 to receive troubleshooting assistance and a lamp replacement.
• If your TV’s warranty has expired, call 1-800-338-0376 to purchase a lamp replacement.

To order the correct lamp, you’ll need to know your TV’s model number, serial number, and lamp type—this
information is listed on the Service Model Number sticker (example of the sticker is shown above). Face the back of
the TV. The sticker is located on the right side of the TV.

Hope this helps :)

LG Projection TV has dark picture

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.
