    I replaced lamp in my projection tv. Same problem, lamp was still on. Repair service charged $48 to use their service remote to reset it. Does anyone know where a service remote can be bought for next time?

To do this, press the ENTER button on the TV and the MUTE button on the remote at the same time. After 5 seconds the screen should come up and it will read "Lamp use time...Total lamp use time ....lamp reset" Press the center button on your remote (the circle button right in the middle of the four directional buttons) and you will be reset to -0- again. Your orange light should now be off.

I believe it said to reset the replacement bulb light you have to hit enter on the tv and mute on the remote at the same time for 5 seconds, then a menu will appear to either see how many hours you have left on your bulb or reset the light.

Hi.

I'm not an engineer but i managed to reset my lg 44sz8r lamp timer by pressing (and hold) MENU on the set & then press and hold MUTE on the remote.

The lamp reset menu should pop up allowing you to choose reset.

Good Luck.

Lamp replaced 1.5 years ago, now the picture goes out but comes back on every few minutes, as if it gets to hot and needs to cool down. Fan comes on.


Lamps only last for 5,000 hrs -8,000 Playing hrs
It means every hour you Play TV Lamp burns up the hours, so after 5,000hrs on most Lamp needs replacing, some Lamps dont even last this long DLPs are not like Projection you can play them 24-7 and Tubes will remain good, But Lamps are like a light bulb they all burn out after so many hours.
Best thing is to turn TV off if you are not watching it, in order to Save Hours burt on Lamp.
Mats has Lamps for $99.00 1-800-628-1118
Replace the Lamp.

Sony - KP61XBR48. I need to know a model of the replacement Lamp


First of all, there are no lamps inside this set, there are CRTs. These are not just replaced as lamps would be. The CRTs themselves will run at leas $80 each. To change these will require replacing the coolant for the CRT as well which is not a DYI type of job. The coolant is dangerous and needs to be handled carefully. Also, once a CRT is replaced, a complete mechanical and electronic convergence adjustment must be made. There is a specific order in which to do this that is outlined in the service manual and it requires a template that would need to be purchased as well.

Unless there is a specific problem that needs to be addressed, it is unlikely that any of the CRTs needs to be replaced.

If you are having a problem with the set, can you please update this with a description of the problem? We should be able to assist in the resulution of the problem with something less drastic than CRT replacement.

Thanks,
Dan

My tv is showing a orange light with a bulb above it what is that and how do i fix it


Sounds like a warning indicator that your lamp has reached its full viewing time( Aprox. 3000 hours) Unfortunately, whatever you are able to watch for the next couple of days will be a bonus. Try to find a replacement globe and find out how to reset the tv, so it knows that you have replaced the globe

Try resseting the lamp timer following the info below: Procedure for resetting the KDF42WE655, KDF50WE655, KDF55WF655, KDF55XS955, KDF60WF655 or KDF60XS955 lamp timer:
1. Press the JUMP button 3 times on the remote to get to the Panel OSD mode.
2. Next press the remote channel 2 button 9 times to get to the Lamp Timer mode.
3. Press the remote 3 button, mute, then enter to reset the timer to zero.

It will take 45-50 seconds for the timer to reset. After the timer is reset you can shut the TV off. The lamp timer will remain reset (no need to save).

How to reset hours (4000) after replacing lamp


when you replace the lamp as soon as you power up the set it should automatically bring up the menu asking if you have replaced the lamp and would you like to resett the lamp hrs. Your problem is not with the lamp. its most likely the power pwb capacitors. You can get the repair kit at the following link with instructions.
