3) Hit the number 2
. You'll see another screen with 4 digits at the bottom left: like 0045 or 00A1, etc.
4) It's in Hex, so fire up your Windows calculator, switch it to Scientific mode, choose Hex as input, enter the digits and switch back to the Digital mode. You'll see your total hours in digital. Btw, leave the first few 0's out in Hex (eg: for the above, enter only 45 or A1, etc.).
This number also seems to reset when you reset the lamp useage. What I want to know is how can I see what the total # of hours (lifetime) the TV has been used (as in turned on and running).
Thank you for any help with this.
