Panasonic Projection TV Lamp Timer Reset

by on Mar.02, 2009, under Other

Your lamp will probably last a lot longer than the TV thinks it should. This procedure will reset the lamp timer so you don’t have to look at that annoying message every time you turn your tv on. Remember that the “lamp” indicator light on the lower left of the set will stay on until the lamp is actually replaced. I had to buy a replacement lamp to get this information, could not find it anywhere for these model numbers.

Press the volume down button on the projection display and hold down the zero button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds. When the reset procedure is complete, a message will display that the lamp timer was reset to zero.

This procedure will work for Panasonic models: PT-52LCX66 , PT-56LCX66 , PT-61LCX66 , PT-52LCX16 , PT-56LCX16 , PT-61LCX16

    Just wanted to say thanks for posting the tip on how to reset the lamp timer for the PT-52LCX66. We had purchased a new lamp, installed it… but found no instructions in the owner’s manual or on the Panasonic website on how to reset the timer.

    I don’t usually respond back to sites I find, but I saw that you had a picture of the USS Curtis (FF38) on your site….and after reading the caption, it lead me to believe you are or were in the Navy.

    So, from the heart of new Navy Mom, whose son is on his first tour of duty on board a frigate …. I especially just wanted to say thanks.

    Thanks very much for your reset info. I don’t know why Panasonic could not print the extra three lines in their manual, and new lamps ($400 Amazon) don’t have instructions, and of course Pana is useless!

    Your info was a godsend!

    I was pleasantly surprised after a Google search to find that you had the instructions posted online. What a blessing to find that someone decided to post it up. Panasonic and all the other vendors out there selling anything usually use this type of ploy to earn some extra dollars at our cost their consumers. I had to buy a Nissan Maxima service manual to get the info on how to program the keyless entry with a new code because Nissan wanted to charge me an arm and a leg for a car which at the time was over seven years old.
