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.
RESETTING THE LAMP TIME
When replacing the lamp, use the following to reset the lamp time.
1. If the Self-Diagnostic screen is already displayed, proceed to step 4.
If not, Power off (Set to Standby mode).
2. Press DISPLAY Channel 5 Sound Volume -
3. To access the Lamp reset, press 5 until the TIME category displays.
4. Press 1 until the RSET item displays.
I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.
