Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Lamp Hour Meter

My TV was purchased in 2003. I have replaced the lamp once since that time. When that lamp went out, there was no warning or notice. The TV simply did not turn on. The service tech told me where to purchase a lamp, and how to replace it.
Now, I'm getting a warning message that the lamp should be replaced, and the lamp hour meter should be reset. Thinking that since the first bulb did not run its complete life cycle, the lamp meter wasn't reset when the tech was here. And, not having a warning message (as it does now), I didn't know to ask how to reset the meter. The warning message "The lamp needs to be replaced, and the lamp hour meter needs to be reset".

    I am experiencing the same issue where the bulb meter is expired but
    the bulb has been replaced recently. Unfortunately, the remote doesn't
    work and I tried doing the meter reset with my Universal remote with no
    luck. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

This proceedure should work for your model to reset the lamp meter.
Lamp Time Reset Procedure:
Be sure to reset the Lamp time to "0" after replacing the new
Lamp.
1. Plug in the AC Cord, and turn on the power by pressing the
POWER button.
2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button on the unit and
the SPLIT key on the remote together for over 5 seconds
in power on condition.
When the reset is finished, the display will indicate that the lamp hrs have been reset to 0 and the LAMP LED goes out.

If you have a PT50LC13, the procedure is to press and hold both the VOL- button on the set and the PIP button (the one at the bottom left) on the remote for 5 - 10 seconds. You will see a message "LAMP TIME WAS RESET TO 0".

#1 - make sure the remote is the one that shipped with the television
#2 - make sure you're aiming the remote at the IR sensor on the television while you perform this procedure
#3 - make sure the message is not on the screen at the time - it will not work if you see the lamp timer needs to be reset message
#4 - make sure the remote, being a universal, is in TV mode.

Thanks for the solution! Be sure and press the vol- on the TV, not the remote, along with PIP on the remote. Had this TV for about 6 1/2 years and never knew how to rest it until now!

    I have a Panasonic LCD TV model PT-50LC13. The procedure I used to reset the Lamp to 0 is: Simultaneously press the vol- on the TV (not on the remote), along with PIP on the remote. After about 5-10 seconds a message will appear indicating the lamp timer was reset to 0. Easy. Good luck.

Everything above is exactly correct but not with a universal remote. One more thing for the males who don't like to read directions without pictures.... "Put the TV COMPLETELY back together..."! That means... put the lamp guard back on and lock it! Then you can follow all the above directions to reset lamp time. You men...just can't follow directions... What would you do without us females.. hee-hee...

The above is correct. I own a Panasonic PT-52LCX15 and the proceedure worked but I had to do it three times before it took. So, hang in there.

The suggestion of the VOLUME button and the PIP BUTTON for 5 SECONDS worked. thank you.

Unable to reset Lamp Hour Meter on Panasonic PT-50LC14


Try this, using the Panasonic remote, wait until the notice about your lamp goes AWAY (it wont work with the message still up).
Hold the volume down on your tv while holding the split/play button on the remote.
You will get a notice about 4-5 seconds later that it was reset.

Reseting the lamp meter on tv


1) Press the POWER button to turn your TV on. Make sure you are set to Cable/TV reception. If the "replace lamp. Reset Lamp timer" notice appears, press "EXIT" on your remote.
2) Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN BUTTON on the TV set (not the remote, the actual TV set)
3) Continue to press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button and press and hold the PIP (Picture in Picture) or SPLIT/PLAY button on your REMOTE control (your are pressing and holding BOTH of these buttons at the same time now).
4) After 5 or 10 seconds (be patient), the lamp serice menu will appear and say your lamp counter has been rest to '0' (zero). That's it, you are all done.

Now, I continue to have the power shut off after a few minutes of play. I think it is a problem with the cooling fan. Damn it all anyway.
