Hold the volume down button on the tv until the volume is at min. then continue to depress the volume down button on the TV. While depressing the volume down button the tv hold the pip or split button on your remote for approx 5 sec. You will see a box pop up that says lamp timer reset and gives instruction on how to exit.

Message on screen says lamp needs to be replaced then timer reset. Need lamp and instructions to reset timer


The lamp time reset will be or should be in the owner manual---Google the model number with keywords "lamp install" with the model number and the "manual" with the model number---Google can be a great help.

How to reset the lamp timer on Sony Projection TVs.


If you have replaced the lamp in your Sony projection TV you must reset the lamp timer to get rid of the message saying that your lamp needs to be replaced. Let's face it, you know you already accomplished replacing the lamp but the TV isn't smart enough to know that. I will explain in detail how to accomplish the reset procedure.

Resetting the lamp timer is a complicated procedure but you should be able to do it if you have plenty of patience and know how to follow instructions. Read the procedure over first several times before trying to do it and locate all the buttons on the remote. You may want to try the procedure on the remote to make sure that you have the sequence memorized.

By the way the lamp life is figured to be from 5000 to 8000 hours. That is not much time if the TV is being used for more than 8 hours per day. If you do the math and watch your TV for 8 hours per day (not uncommon) the lamp will need replaced in 3 to 5 years. So be ready to do this procedure again in the very near future.

Here is the procedure.

All commands should be done using the factory remote:

1) enter the service mode by pressing display, 5, volume +, Power on
2) press JUMP 3 times
3) to display the time press channel 2, 9 times
4) to reset lamp timer press channel 3, MUTE, Enter
5) to check the time press channel 1, 7 times
6) when complete turn set off to exit.

How to reset the lamp timer for Panasonic DLP TVs.


When you replace the lamp on a Panasonic DLP or LCD TV you will need to reset the lamp timer to zero for the TV to reset the lamp timer and extinguish the change lamp indicator.

There are two methods used depending on which model TV you have. The older units use the first method and newer units use the second method. You can tell which method you need to use by whether you have a PIP and/or SPLIT button on your remote. If you have them use the first method, if you don't use the second method.

Method number 1 (for older units):

Follow the procedure below. You use either PIP or SPLIT button depending on whether your remote has SPLIT or not. Some do not.

Perform lamp timer reset only when the lamp has been replaced. The idea is to know when to replace the lamp before the end of it's life when it could explode or short out causing a hazadous condition. If you reset the lamp circuit at any other time the replace lamp warning will not come on at the recommended interval.

Be sure the power cord is plugged into a properly grounded wall outlet.
Then, press the POWER button on the projection display or the remote control to turn the unit on.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the
PIP or SPLIT button on the remote control at same time for more than 5 seconds.

If your remote does not have a split button you use PIP, if it has a split button, you would use SPLIT.

When reset procedure is complete, the screen on the TV will indicate that the lamp has been reset. When lamp time reset is finished, the LAMP indicator goes out.

Method number 2 (for newer units):

Press volume down on the TV and the zero button on the remote at the same time for longer than 5 seconds and it will reset the lamp to zero.

These procedures should reset your lamp timer and you will be good until the current lamp fails or the change lamp indicator illuminates again signalling that it is time to replace the lamp. Three to six years on average depending on how much you run the unit per day. Do not ignore the indicator. Change the lamp immediately to avoid further damage and expense or worse.
