How to Reset the Lamp Timer on a Panasonic
Panasonic manufactures rear-projection televisions in several sizes for home entertainment. Rear-projection lamps install behind the screen to produce a picture on the screen that is bright and high definition. The projector lamps need changing when they no longer illuminate much. The TV has a display to show the remaining life of a lamp so you can install a replacement lamp before there is no picture on the screen. After installing a new lamp, you need to reset the lamp timer so that the display shows the correct amount of lamp life available.
Press the "Power" button on the TV remote control to turn the Panasonic rear-projector TV on and display a picture on the screen.
Press the "Menu" button. The "Main Menu" will appear on the screen. Press the "Option" button.
Press the "Enter" button. The "Optional Menu" screen will appear. Press the button to select "Lamp Runtime."
Press the "Enter" button and hold it for about three seconds. The "Lamp Runtime" will change to display "Time Reset (Power Off)."
Press the "Power" button to turn the TV to the off position.
Unplug the power cord from the electrical socket. Wait about one minute and plug the TV into the electrical socket.
Tips & Warnings
- This process resets the lamp timer to the original Panasonic factory run-time of zero hours.
- This process may vary slightly using a universal remote control. You may need to scroll through the main and optional menu screens with the up and down buttons to access the lamp's run-time feature.
