Re: How to reset lamp timer

Press and hold the "enter" button on the TV, the press and hold the "menu" button on the zenith remote-- after several seconds of holding both buttons the option of re-setting the lamp came up. Hope this helps

Bulb still good but its saying it needs replaced

Not knowing the brand or model (not listed here) many sets will flash this when lamp has reached a certain number of hours and many sets when lamp is replaced (see owner manual) the LAMP TIMER has to be reset to start the process over again---usual life is 2,000 hours or 2 years.

How to reset the lamp timer on Sony Projection TVs.

If you have replaced the lamp in your Sony projection TV you must reset the lamp timer to get rid of the message saying that your lamp needs to be replaced. Let's face it, you know you already accomplished replacing the lamp but the TV isn't smart enough to know that. I will explain in detail how to accomplish the reset procedure.

Resetting the lamp timer is a complicated procedure but you should be able to do it if you have plenty of patience and know how to follow instructions. Read the procedure over first several times before trying to do it and locate all the buttons on the remote. You may want to try the procedure on the remote to make sure that you have the sequence memorized.

By the way the lamp life is figured to be from 5000 to 8000 hours. That is not much time if the TV is being used for more than 8 hours per day. If you do the math and watch your TV for 8 hours per day (not uncommon) the lamp will need replaced in 3 to 5 years. So be ready to do this procedure again in the very near future.

Here is the procedure.

All commands should be done using the factory remote:

1) enter the service mode by pressing display, 5, volume +, Power on
2) press JUMP 3 times
3) to display the time press channel 2, 9 times
4) to reset lamp timer press channel 3, MUTE, Enter
5) to check the time press channel 1, 7 times
6) when complete turn set off to exit.

How to reset lamp timer

The operator's manual has no reference to a lamp timer. The only user setting associated with the lamp is "Energy" for setting the lamp power to Standard or Bright. I'm surprised; most LCD RPTV sets have a timer that should be reset after replacing the lamp, and the instructions for doing so are given in the manual. The manual for this model only says to replace the lamp if the picture is getting dimmer (page 77).

Replaced main bulb in front but lamp button on front of tv is still blinking and tv won't show picture

The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    According to the lamp manual you just need to power the set on with the remote and then press (and hold) the Vol - button on the front of the set, While holding the Vol- button on the front of the set press and hold the PIP button on the remote. HOLD both for more than 5 seconds or until the lamp timer has been reset to 0 appears on the screen.

    If this solution works let me know by voting for this post. If not then let me know.

    If the timer has not been reset telling the unit it has a new lamp you will get that message. Call a servicer to find out how to reset the timer if you don't have the owners manual. If the message continues after that you will need to purchace a new lamp. There are problems that accur with some aftermarket lamps.
