Turn on the tv. On the tv itself, push and hold the volume down button. Then on the remote, where it has split/swap button, press and hold the swap (down) button while pointing remote at tv.

Try a reset. Start by unplugging for 1 minute, then plug back in & if still won't restart try the following. If none of the following work, you will need a technician.

Initializing the TV in many cases can remedy a problem.
In the 2006 product line Initialization is now a user function.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT' and "FORMAT"
buttons at the same time activates Initialization. When
complete all user settings will have to be set again. The
table in Figure 4-3 list the User Initialization procedures.

the Initialization in the Option Menu (MENU-2-4-7-0)

Tip

Lamp Reset Procedures for Toshiba TVs.


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. At the very least it will cost you more to repair.

The manufacturers goal for having a lamp timer is to get the customer to change the lamp prior to a catastrophic event happening. Most lamps only last for about 3 years and that equates to 6000 to 8000 hours when watched for more than 8 hours per day.

To reset first make sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet.
1) Turn the main power switch to the "ON" position.
2) Press and hold the "On/Standby", "Menu" and "Input" buttons at the same time. The buttons are on the projection TV. Though the same buttons are found on the remote control, the reset only works with the buttons on the TV.
3) Plug the power cord back into the outlet while holding the buttons in Step 2.
4) The lamp timer will reset when the projector receives power.

This should reset your counter and you will be ready to enjoy your TV for about another 8000 hours or three years which ever comes first.

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

How to reset the hour 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

Lamp flashes red and tv just shut off


You may have a bad lamp. Open the door on the side & pull lamp. The part number is TY-LA2006. They cost about $200-225. BE SURE to reset the lamp timer. If you buy an original Panasonic TY-LA2006 lamp, it will have instructions to reset lamp timer.

Projection lamp timer reset


I need help resetting the lamp timer. Is there a way to reset the timer w/o the remote? We bought this tv as a floor model 4 yrs ago and they didn't have the actual remote that came with it, so they gave us another remote that works. We replaced the lamp but we keep getting the message that the lamp needs to be replaced and the timer reset. Plus the red lamp indicator is still on. We even used a friend's remote (he has the exact same tv) and it still will not reset the timer.
