POST Replaced Bulb Problem, Error code = 32

I replaced the bulb and all was great, for ten hours. It shut down b/c I didn't reset the bulb timer, as is reqiuired. To reset, you're supposed to hold the "Menu" and "Vol +" keys at the same time. Anyway, the unit is shut down, and now flashes a 3-2 code - meaning a bulb problem or failure. The new bulb is perfectly fine. So, b/c it wasn't reset, the the TV won't turn on. So it won't recognize the "Menu-Vol+" command to reset. It's a Catch-22. what do you do??? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! K

    I can tell you that I exactly as the book instructed to reset my timer and the system didn't recognize the command. I've also had this "going off" problem and when I took out the box and put it back in I'm right back where I was. Only difference is, now the message to change the bulb stays on just a second and goes off on its own

This unit will not go into shut down because the lamp timer is not reset. The error you are getting means the lamp you put in is defective or it is not seated proplerly. Make sure the lamp door is on properly because there is a lamp door safety switch that must be depressed properly or the unit will shut down. When the timer needs to be reset you simply get a message on the screen that tells you so, it does not shut down. There are other things that will cause this problems such as the ballast or even problems in the light engine.

I have a Mitsubishi 60inch 60737 replaced the bulb last month.now it keeps cutting off,cleaned the filter before.someone said to reset bulb timer,how do I reset it.

The Lamp timer will not cause it to shut down. The timer should have been reset when you first turned the TV on after replacing the bulb. Make sure your bulb is an Osram brand bulb. If not, then you do not want to use it as it may not be very good.

Panasonic projector PT-L78 - Cannot get ride of Lamp time error. To reset the timer

How long ago did you replace the lamp?
If the lamp has not actually been replaced and you are attempting to bypass this safety feature then I have bad news for you. Once the projector determines current flow through the lamp has exceeded the threshold amount, it will put the projector into the mode it is in now - Critical Lamp Replacement. You can set the projector bulb to low power output and see if that allows you to reset the bulb life timer but, again, if you have not actually replaced the bulb assembly, you are in danger of the bulb bursting under pressure. This can actually damage the projector.

You can find the manual for your projector at

Cannot reset lamp timer as will not project. Replaced the lamp in my 3m X50, bulb came right on. I had to shut it down before reseting the lamp timer. Now will not light up so that I can navigate the...

It does not sound like resetting the lamp timer is what is keeping the projector from throwing an image. Try walking through the steps of the installation backwards to remove the bulb completely. Then reinstall the bulb again from scratch making sure everything is seated properly. If it powers up again just remember to set the clock back on the bulb.

Replaced bulb last nite, green light blinks for a min. then it worked! watched a few min.turned on this morning blinking.... wont stop green blink. last nite when i changed bulb tv said change bulb reset...

Many projectors use a lamp hour timer for predicting bulb life so they can give you fair warning of impending failure. Since a bulb may be removed and reinstalled because it is still working or another used lamp installed, the timer is not automatically reset to zero when the lamp is replaced. I surmise your set is complaining because the timer was not reset or the time verified when you changed the bulb.

To fix the problem, buy or borrow a remote control; a universal remote control with a menu button may work. (If you borrow a universal remote from a friend, be sure to record the code for your friend's TV first so you can set it back before returning it.)

You could probably get back into the timer reset menu by removing the new lamp and reinstalling it. Caution: follow the directions on page 68 of the user's manual or the sheet that came with the bulb - let the set cool for an hour first, unplug, and wear gloves when handling the bulb since skin oil can cause discoloration and possibly an explosion when the bulb gets hot. You can download the user's manual from Panasonic's support page for this set.

If you can edit the timer hours instead of just resetting, you may want to set it for the number of hours the new bulb has been used.

It is likely that you can get into the lamp timer menu if the set is in service mode, but the user's manual doesn't tell how to get there (I don't have that info either - it's in the service manual, which may be available online from a third party for a price). Usually it is something like holding a volume or channel button on the front of the TV while turning it on with the remote control. After that you need the code to switch to the timer menu. If you have problems getting into the timer menu, ask your dealer's service department or try calling the Panasonic help line listed on the bottom of page 68: 1-888-VIEW PTV(843-9788).

Mitsubishi HC 900 DLP Projection Lamp Shutdown.

Honestly I would try entering the 'Lamp timer reset' code again. Or the button sequence given to reset the lamp timer.
An issue that may be happening is that something may have happened to the lamp ballast power supply also.
Just a thought.
Blessings always,

I replaced the bulb in my projector and now it

You need to hold the help button on the remote control for ten seconds, that should reset the lamp hour. NEC decided to make it inoperable after 2100 hours on the bulb.

New bulb/TV still shuts down

Its far more likely the result of the power pwb capacitors that have failed. As the 34 code will appear if the capacitors fail on the Power PWB. You can get the V26 DLP Power repair kit at the following link.with free instructions
