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.

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

Replaced main bulb in front but lamp button on front of tv is still blinking and tv won't show picture


The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

  • 2

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    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.

    you cant, when you remove and replace the lamp cover the tv will come on and ask if you changed the lamp. you need to press enter on the remote (not the tv) to reset the counter. go buy a universal remote and program it to your tv then use that. make sure the remote you buy has an enter button. most should, but you never know.
