Hello, Please double check that model number carefully, and post back with the correct one. The one you posted is not valid.

I'm going to assume the correct model number is: PT43LC14. Correct?

Hi , i`m Jack , different tech.

Here is a lamp reasonably priced for this PT43LC14 ; http://www.apexlamps.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=759&gclid=CjwKEAjwpqq6BRC99aKUkaSjuDsSJAC0pNTVy1CY1uYHp0DVevYJQSsS__uiH_a8Ce13lahHo7BEZBoCTCjw_wcB

Do not buy any cheaper than that like those lamps at 30 or $40 on ebay and amazon , you`d only be asking for trouble

If your lamp is still coming on but you are getting a message to replace it then you can reset the lamp timer to turn off that message but do replace that lamp soon , it will not last long and very likely will blow up

Here is the procedure for this model ;

Turn on the tv and then press and hold VOLUME DOWN directly on the front panel while you press and hold SPLIT (play) on the remote until you see the message that the timer has been reset to 0

Note that some models use the PIP button instead of SPLIT

Let me know if you have other questions and if not then please do not forget to rate by clicking on the star icons at the top, then click on Submit so i get paid for my time helping you .
Also note that it will not close this post , you can come back here at any time if you need further info or help .
Thank you
