Here is the proceedure to replace the lamp and reset the lamp hours.
Lamp Replacement Procedure:
1. Press the POWER button to turn off the power.
2. Wait for about 1 minute until the cooling fan stops.
Note:
The lamp cooling fan will continue to operate for about 1
minute after the power is turned off. Do not unplug the AC
Cord from the outlet until the fan has stopped. Avoid
interrupting the power by using circuit breakers or switchable
power strips.
3. After the cooling fan has stopped, unplug the AC Cord from
the outlet.
Note:
Please wait more than one hour before replacing the lamp.
[ Forced cooling function ]
If you need to replace the lamp more urgently:
- The Projection display has a forced cooling feature.
After the POWER button is turned OFF, and during the
first minute of the normal cooling fan operation, press
the VOLUME UP button on the unit and CH UP key on
the remote at the same time for more than 5 seconds.
The cooling fan operates for about 10 minutes. (LAMP
LED will flash 5 times every 5 second and POWER LED
will flash red for 10 minutes.)
4. Remove the Front Cover Unit from the latches.
5. Turn the Knob to the left.
6. Pull the Lamp Cover out.
7. Loosen the Screw on the Lamp. Then, pull the Lamp.
Note:
Because the Lamp may still be hot, use caution when
handling.
8. Install the new Lamp, and tighten the Screw.
9. Install the Lamp Cover, and turn the Knob to the right.
10. Install the Front Cover Unit.
Lamp Time Reset Procedure:
Be sure to reset the Lamp time to "0" after replacing the new
Lamp.
1. Plug in the AC Cord, and turn on the power by pressing the
POWER button.
2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button on the unit and
the SPLIT key on the remote together for over 5 seconds
in power on condition.
When the reset is finished, the display will indicate that the lamp hrs have been reset to 0 and the LAMP LED goes out.

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.

When you trun on my panasonic PT-61LCX65 tv it makes no sounds the light blinks green. and then red and turns off. what is wrong. i have looked at the buble and it looks fine.


Hello,

does the TV bring out sound even as the screen display is dark?

How long have you been using this TV and have you ever changed the lamp/bulb? Problem should be from the TV lamp/bulb.
Have the lamp replaced and hopefully, your screen should be perfect as before.

Let me know if you need directions in replacing the lamp, even though it is very simple replace.

Yours sincerely.

I want to change the lamp. Any advice, directions, words of wisdom ? Thanks Stuart


One word followed by the reasons

DON'T!

Many who think this is just like changing a light globe end up with numerous halo and ring problems on the screen mucking up the picture.
1) There is a matching sequence with the globe
2) it has to be retuned across the screen so thatthere are no shadow areas, rings and halos. So i't's like a focus that is finely set using an instrument to ensure optimum.
3) the lamp hours are reset inside the unit as well as on the screen.

There are 50 peiple currently who changed their own lamps and now have more problems than they need, most times we can't help them because we don;t know what they fiddled with to begin with.

Please rate my help+_++++Thanks for using FIXYA

If you have an Infocus LP340 or LP350, you can reset the lamp hours by pressing and holding down the - volume button and then press the menu button (while still holding down the - volume button) for 6 seconds.
