I lost my manual...

I lost my manual. I replaced the lamp on a PT-50LC13. How do I reset the lamp hour meter?

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your -50LC13?

15 years? I replaced the lamp once years ago.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

The lamp is working, but when I turn it on, I get the notice that the meter needs to be reset

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Just that
