Hi guys

Firstly you need the remote to reset the lamp timer.

Hold down the left and right scroll buttons on the remote and press menu. That will reset your lamp timer.

    I do not have a remote for the VPL-EX1 either and need to reset the lamp timer.

    On the unit itself there is no 'reset' button, one a joystick/enter button and a menu button.

    I tried pushing both these buttons at once in the hope that it would reset but no luck.

    Does anyone have any idea how to reset the lamp timer on this unit *without* the remote?

    Thanks in advance, Ben

The person I purchased this t.v from is saying the lamp was just replaced, but the FINAL WARNING REPLACE BULB AND RESET TIMER message pops up every time I power the tv on. She said she forgot to reset the...

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.

Samsung DLP HL-P5063W. . .no lamp!

Remove the rear cover and check the lamp cover switch. Earlier versions used a black plastic switch holder that may break due to improper assembly. The part number for the holder is BP61-01240A. Newer versions use a metal tab attached to the engine. In this case, improper assembly may cause the lamp cover switch to be extended past its range, either breaking the switch or causing it to have an open contact. Replace the switch with BP91-01231A.

Note that in these models, when reinstalling the rear cover, it is best to remove the lamp cover first, install the rear cover, then install the lamp cover. This will make sure that the lamp switch is properly engaged.
