    Yes, more specific instructions are:

    Hold down the volume button on the plasma itself (not the remote like I first tried).
    On the remote, while holding the plasmas volume button, press the button beneath the power button 3 times. Then select "SD" from the menu, and it'll show you how many times your plasma's been switched on vs hours.

    I've had mine now for around 5 months, surprised it only has 250 hours on it:eek:

    It is the same for the PW7 - mine already has 210 hours on it and only had it for a month. Think I need to get out more :suicide:

    Try this (but don't blame me if it breaks your plasma as I just copied it from another website).

    Accessing the Service Menu on Consumer Models :
    ( Consumer "PA" , "PD25" & "PX" Models Only )

    Set sleep timer to 30 minutes
    Go to cable / antenna input and switch to channel 124
    Turn volume all the way down with the remote
    Press down volume button on the unit itself
    CHK will appear in red in the top-left corner.
    Press the power button on the remote control to get into the service menu
    with "CHK" displayed.
    Press power on the unit itself to exit the service menu
    (turns off the unit but doesn't erase your user mode settings
