Jerico, If you will go on dlp lamps .com I believe they answer that question in their FAQ. You can also give them a call. Look on their site for number. All I know is that they make the whole process really easy.

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

How do you reset the lamp timer?


Here's how to reset the lamp timer:
- Press the Menu button
- Scroll down to the LAMP TIMER RESET option, then scroll right to enter
- Confirm that it is OK to reset the lamp timer by hitting the OK button.
- The on-screen menu should confirm the lamp was reset correctly

You should only reset it after you've changed the projector bulb.

I replaces my bulb in the sony vpl-hs10 and it still will not turn on after I reset it what do I do now? the lamp light is still lite it turns on but the lamp does not project anything


These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS3.
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter

This is required, to reset the lamp timer.

Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

The end of lamp timer has reached it's limit and won't let the new lamp strike. What you need to do is Reset the end of life timer. To do this, with the projector switched off press and hold both the up and down Brightness buttons on the projector. while holding them in turn on the projector. Continue holding the buttons in for 10 to 15 seconds This will reset the end of life timer in the projector.

Sony cineza vpl hs51 projector won't project


Something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

The lamp may not have been changed - just the timer reset - How many hours has the lamp really done - 1000, 3000, 5000?
If you know that the hours are genuine, then was the quartz bulb contaminated with a touch of oil from skin contact?
This will substantially shorten lamp life, due to the quartz going milky and opaque.
The easiest way to check, is to pull the lamp and have a look at the bulb.

If need be replace the lamp and reset the lamp timer.
