Checking Panasonic Plasma TV running time…

If you would like to know the ‘mileage’ for your Panasonic plasma TV, you can try the method below. Taken from lowyat forum, originally posted by tien8tien.

# Hold down the {VOL -} button ON THE PLASMA.
# At the same time, Press the {Status} button (the button on the left of the 0 (zero) button) on the remote control 3 times. (this must be done within 3 seconds of the {VOL-} button being pressed).
# Release both the {VOL -} button and the {Status} button and wait for about 2 seconds.
# The Service Menu will be displayed.

# Use the RED buttons to move to “SRV-TOOL” screen
and press the {OK} button to access it.

# HIGHLIGHT the box on the right side of the last option: (Navigate by using the arrow buttons on the remote)

# Then press and hold the {MUTE} button on the remote for 3 seconds.

TIME = Hours and Minutes of Operation.
COUNT = Times the Plasma was Powered On.

# To exit, press & hold the {Return} button on the Remote for few seconds. The TV will power reset and goes back to the original program that you are watching.
