The tv was fine for a week, and still works fine but gives a message that the bulb needs replaced and the lamp timer needs to be reset. the red light indicator is on I think the lamp timer is the problem how do I reset it.

I have searched and searched on how to reset the timer. Most solutions say you have to press and hold the volume down button on the tv while also holding down the zero button on the remote, or the pip or split button on the remote until the screen display reads that the timer has been reset to zero or the lamp and power button both flash.

I have tried every combination and cannot seem to reset my lamp timer. If you figure it out, please share it with us!! I'm frustrated and can't get it to work!!

    If your remote does not have PIP or Split buttons, you need to hold the volume down button and press 0 on the remote holding the two at least 5 seconds. I was able to reset mine that way.

How to reset the lamp meter on a panasonic pt-52lcx16

Panasonic Projection TV Lamp Timer Reset
Your lamp will probably last a lot longer than the TV thinks it should. This procedure will reset the lamp timer so you don't have to look at that annoying message every time you turn your tv on. Remember that the "lamp" indicator light on the lower left of the set will stay on until the lamp is actually replaced. I had to buy a replacement lamp to get this information, could not find it anywhere for these model numbers.
Press the volume down button on the projection display and hold down the zero button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds. When the reset procedure is complete, a message will display that the lamp timer was reset to zero.
This procedure will work for Panasonic models: PT-52LCX66 , PT-56LCX66 , PT-61LCX66 , PT-52LCX16 , PT-56LCX16 , PT-61LCX16

How to remove yellow in center of screen on panasonic pt-52lcx66-k hdtv

You might start by cleaning the lenses & mirror(this may use a Mylar sheet rather than mirror,don't try to clean the mylar) then install a new lamp
part#: TY-LA1001 $70.00
or $49.00 to $80.00
If that doesn't cure it you most likely need a new light engine/optic block which would make the repairs cost prohibitive even if you can locate the light engine.

No screen at all, does not come on.

If you haven't replaced the lamp yet, that is the first thing to try. Its not hard to do at all.

You can get the lamp just about anywhere on the web.
Here is a link to one site

Here is the procedure for replacing the lamp.

Unplug the unit from the wall and wait for all the lights to stop blinking. Ensure that the lamp and the area around the lamp has cooled.
Remove the front cover of the set. You should be able to see the lamp door at this time, loosen the screw and remove the door. You will now have access to the lamp, loosen the lamp screws and remove the lamp cartridge. Reverse the above process and you should be back in business.

For the full instructions and how to reset the lamp timer go to the following site
