Question about Zenith E44W46LCD 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Lamp timer near 10K

Ok, I ordered a new lamp, but I can't figure out how to reset the light timer. I go to the service menu, and then to replace lamp. It shows listing for several (0-9) bulbs and a total, only bulb 0 has time listed (this is the original one for the tv). It only highlights the total and a section at the top that says "lamp use time reset". I press the center button of the navigation circle, and the menu dissapears, but nothing happens. While in this menu area, I cannot make the highlight move at all. Is there a code that I should be typing in, or when I replace the bulb will it recognise it as a different one.

p,s, I removed the old bulb, and put it back in to see if there was a switch that would reset it.

    manual shows nothing on resetting this timer. This is in the service menu area.

  • Fireman Ed Aug 23, 2008

    the manual says nothing about lamp timer resetting. it just tells me that the orange light on the tv means replace bulb because of timer.

  • Fireman Ed Aug 23, 2008

    it has the original bulb still, I have tried holding the enter button down for a minute at the "lamp timer reset" prompt, but no dice so far. anyone else?

  • Fireman Ed Aug 23, 2008

    thanks, this was exactly what I needed to get the light out on the tv.

"If you replace the DLP lamp out of your Zenith or LG, you will need to reset the counter…otherwise you may get an annoying reminder every few days if you’re surpassed the predetermined hour mark.
To Reset:
Ensure the TV is powered on.
1) Press and HOLD the MENU button on the TV
2) Press and HOLD the MENU button on your REMOTE
(hold both these until the service menu pops up 5-10 secs 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
We suggest writing your lamp hours on a peice of masking tape and taping it to the back the TV for future reference.
7) To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrove buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter"

    KDF46E2000 - Change Lamp Warning - Reset

    Bulb is most likely OK. Original bulb in Sony TV is Philips, label on bulb usually says Philips. Sony don't make bulbs. Sony Cost is usually 1.5 times other sources. Many shopping cart operations sell condemned, reject or poor quality electronic service items because cost of return and fooling with them is excessive. This is obvious and widespread with convergence ICs and other parts.

    Lamp timer needs reset. This is usually an automatic function. TV detects Increased lamp current from previous failed bulb or weak bulb condition and resets automatically. TV must be unplugged for lamp replacement for this to work. Occasionally it must be reset manually, as below:

    1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
    2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a
    second of each other:
    DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that
    contains the Category with the Adjustment Item you want to change.
    2. To change the Category, press 2 or 5 on the Remote Commander.
    Note: Pressing 2 or 5 only changes the categories within the
    Service Menu displayed. To change a Category on one of the other
    Service Menus, press the JUMP button until the correct Service
    Menu is displayed.
    3. To change the Adjustment Item, press 1 or 4 on the Remote
    Commander.
    4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
    Commander.
    Note: To go back to the last saved Data Value, press 0 then ENT
    on the Remote Commander to read the memory.
    5. To save the changes, press MUTING then ENT to write into
    memory.
    6. To exit service mode, turn the power off by pressing POWER .
    Wait 2 minutes before restarting the set to allow the fans to
    completely shut down or the Service Menu will appear on the screen.

    If the timer has not been reset telling the unit it has a new lamp you will get that message. Call a servicer to find out how to reset the timer if you don't have the owners manual. If the message continues after that you will need to purchace a new lamp. There are problems that accur with some aftermarket lamps.

    How do I reset the replace lamp message


    Do you have a picture? If so the only way to reset this unit is to get a Zenith programmer remote. With this remote you can get into the service menu and reset the lamp timer and that will reset the unit.
