To reset the lamp hours, turn on the projector. Then press Menu and use the Up/Down arrows to highlight Options. Press Enter then highlight Lamp Runtime. Press and hold Enter for 3+ seconds until the Lamp Runtime screen is displays. Press the Power button (any other button cancels the reset). When the Power button LED turns red, unplug the power cord to the projector. You can either use the remote or the controls on the projector. Reconnect the power cord after a few minutes.
I have a Panasonic PT-AE4000U and could not reset the timer after replacing the bulb with a, non-Panasonic branded bulb. Calls to tech support were not very helpful. It was another bad customer service experience. Through troubleshooting it myself, I discovered the solution was simply to unplug EVERYTHING (serial cable, hdmi cables, etc.) from the device, power it off and back on. Follow the procedure in the manual, the timer immediately reset!!
Hello! Have you bought bare lamp? Probably, yes. And not from "Panasonic"? yes. The timer's reset procedure is different for every model of Panasonic, including TVs. when you buy lamp with housing from Panasonic, they will give you the directions, how to. If it's "aftermarket", nope! http://www.manualowl.com/m/Panasonic/PT-D5600U/Manual/52045 that's where you will find the procedure. it's quite complicated, page 45. follow the directions. good luck, Alex.
When you remove one of the lamps, you're notice that there's a micro-chip build into the housing itself. Unfortunately there's no way of manually resetting the lamp hours, due to the chip. You'll need to replace the whole lamp assembly.
