Hi,

If you keep the TV disconnected from the power long enough, the TV should hard reset.

    Try leaving it unplugged for a few hours. Also, what exactly do you mean split screen?

Hello
To replace the lamp of your Panasonic Projection TV do the following. Read these instructions carefully and then try to do the job.

1. Turn the power off, wait until the power indicator turns off blinking red, then unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and confirm that the area around the lamp unit has cool down.

2. Remove the front cover procedure. Place your finger tips under the cover and pull it from the projection display.

3. Before loosening the lamp cover screw, first read the caution and warning labels in the lamp cover. Then loosen the lamp cover screw by using a screwdriver.

4. Loosen the lamp unit screw with a screwdriver. Then grasp the lamp unit, Figure 2, by the lamp unit handle and slowly remove it from the projection display.

Tip

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.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

MY PANASONIC PT-52LCX35 REMOTE DOES NOT HAVE A SPLIT OR PIP BUTTON. MY BOTTOM BUTTONS ARE TV/VCR, VCR/DBS CH UP,DOWN. HOW DO I RESET THE LAMP TIMER. THIS IS THE REMOTE THAT CAME WITH THE TV.


I can help you reset the lamp timer for your Panasonic PT-52LCX66 Projection HDTV. The buttons used are the TV's volume down and the remote's number 0, not the 'split' or pip for your model.

Follow the steps in my Fixya Tip for the complete lamp timer reset procedure.

I hope that helps.

I cannot reset my lamp clock


http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080221185527AAvGCui

I just now replaced my lamp and tried the solution on the above bookmarked site (hold down VOL- on the TV itself while holding down the SPLIT button on the TV remote simultaneously for several seconds... I didn't need all 20 seconds that this site recommends), and that worked for me. About 5-10 seconds in, I saw a blue box on my screen that basically said "Lamp timer has been reset to 0" with an "Exit" box below that. It took me a while to find the "Exit" button on my remote control to clear that box off the screen, but that's how I cleared it.

My TV is just short of 3 years old; I bought my Panasonic PT-52LCX65 on "Black Friday" (day after Thanksgiving) in 2005. My lamp died last Saturday night.

Hope this helps! -- ChuckE
