    Checking The Hours on Consumer Models :

    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, Followed by 5 letter/numbers
    which are the cumulative hours of the plasma in hex.
    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).

    Quick tip by jasonbanks to covert the hours in hex to numbers:
    In Windows, open CALC (calculator). Click View, and set it to Scientific mode.
    Select Hex, and enter your number (e.g., 1B5), then click Dec.
    It will convert it to a number for you.
