How do I reset the lamp timer to get rid of the message when I first turn on the TV?

I just replaced the bulb on my Sony Wega and I still have a message on the TV to replace it.

I need the model number to look up the method to reset the lamp message. Some Sony's required a technician to enter the service menu to reset the lamp hours but every Sony I've known to give an actual lamp message was consumer level reset. For example the model KDS-50A2000 refers you to page 47 where it tells you to go to the "Setup" menu and scroll down to "Lamp Replacement" to turn that on and reset the lamp warning. This was sometimes missed because it was further down on the "Setup" menu and you have to scroll past the first page. Please try going into your setup menu and looking for a "Lamp Replacement" option or something similar. If you have trouble please write back with the model number so I can check where to find it.
