Sorry i tried searching but didnt find exactly what i was looking for. I have a Panasonic 50PZ85U. I want to find out the hours ive used and not sure where to look.

I hit the volume down button on set and then info three times and a service menu pops up. However i dont know where to go from here. It seems ive hit every button and the menu seems unresponsive. I admit i am a bit afraid to do the wrong thing and ruin any setting.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Dan

1. Enter Service Menu (Hold Vol. - down on the TV while pressing the INFO button on the remote 3 times).
2. Press the {2} button on the remote 1 time, to go to SRV-TOOL.
3. Press the {OK} button. A blue grid will appear with the following information.
TD2Mictocode: 81c00011
Flash ROM: 1-227E
PTCT :00.00.00.00.00
4. Cursor down to the PTCT :00.00.00.00.00 line and then cursor over to the right to highlight the empty box.
5. Press and hold the {MUTE} button on the remote for 3 seconds.
The TIME / COUNT info will be displayed in Hours and Minutes of Operation.
6. To exit, press and hold the {POWER} button on the TV for 2 seconds.
The display will re-start by itself.

<<<< WARNING - WARNING - WARNING >>>>
The {VOL+} and {VOL -} buttons are used to change
values in the Service Menu. Make sure not to touch
those buttons anytime while checking the hours used.
