If you are in the service menu (by holding down "Enter" on the TV and "Mute" on the remote simultaneously for about 5 seconds) - use the right arrow on the remote to reset the lamp time, and then hit the round button on the remote - the one between the arrows that has a "bulls eye" on it. That did it for me.

Hello, i would like to know if resetting the lamp timer on an LG MW60sz12 will allow you to get more time out of it?? also if it is possible, how do you reset it???


Hi there,

Quick answer = NO.

As projection TV lamps generally have a life somewhere between 3,000 - 6,000hrs (depending on lamp quality/type), the lamp timer is simply there to assist you in determining when the current lamp is due for replacement.

Resetting the lamp timer has no effect what so ever, on the longevity of the lamp.

The Lamp Timer Reset function is hidden within the Service menu and as such, technicians are usually the only ones who are authorised to reset the timer.

However, the following procedure has been known to reset LG lamp timers:

1. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the TV front panel.
2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.
4. Release the remote MENU button first, then the TV MENU button.
5. While holding that button, press and hold the MUTE button on the remote.
6. Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV front panel.
7. Hold both buttons until the Lamp Life Hours show up on your TV screen.
8. Release the MUTE button first, then the ENTER button on the TV front panel.
9. Make a note of the lamp hours if you want.
10. To reset the lamp hours, press the SELECT button (the one between the four arrow keys with two concentric circles on it) on your remote.
11. It will ask you to confirm the reset--press SELECT again to confirm

Lamp Reset Procedure for LG and Zenith Televisions


You have replaced your lamp and the set is working fine but the 'replace lamp light' is still on. What do you do?

This is an important procedure because you need to know when it is time to replace the lamp again. If you do not reset the timer you may run the risk of having the lamp explode, because it was not replaced in time. This can be dangerous and could cause a fire.

To reset first make sure the TV is powered on.

1) Press and HOLD the MENU button on the TV.

2) Press and HOLD the MENU button on the remote.

Hold both these until the service menu button pops up. About 5 - 10 seconds max.

3) Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.

4) Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV.

5) Press and HOLD the MUTE button on the REMOTE. Hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen.

6) Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.

I suggest writing your lamp hours on a piece of masking tape and taping it to the back of the TV for future reference.

7) To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrow buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter.

For certain models you may have to try different buttons or tweak the steps slightly.

This should reset your counter and you will be ready to enjoy your TV for about another 8000 hours.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.

To verify you've reset the hours, you can repeat steps 1-9 above and then just press the EXIT button on your remote.

Hope this helps. Regards, James.

Lamp light will not turn off after installing a new one.


You will need to use the lamp reset procedure now that you have replaced the lamp.

This was copied/pasted from a previous fixya solution posted by expert DGJ89RS... This might or might not work for your Zenith telivision. I could not find any procedure on the Zenith website. They just advised to call a repair technician.

1- Press and hold the MENU button on the TV.
2- Press and hold the MENU button on your REMOTE (hold both these until the service menu pops up 5-10 secs max).
3 - Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.
4- Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV.
5- Press and hold the MUTE button on the REMOTE (hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen).
6- Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV. 7- To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrow buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter.

Replacing lamp in rear projection tv


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.

How do I reset the replace lamp message


found this on Justanswer.com and worked perfectly for me

1- Press and hold the MENU button on the TV.
2- Press and hold the MENU button on your REMOTE (hold both these until the service menu pops up 5-10 secs max).
3 - Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.
4- Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV.
5- Press and hold the MUTE button on the REMOTE (hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen).
6- Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV.
7- To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrow buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter.

The problem is that it require the screen to work. That mean that the timer by itself probably can't keep the TV from powering up. I would verify how the lamp was installed (perhaps retrying the previous lamp).

Does any led flashing with a pattern in time occur when you try to power it on?

About the "?" button, i don't see that on the remote.
