Can anyone tell how to access the "Hours Of Usage" on the PDP 505xde.
Put the screen into standby
On the remote, press the button under  and release it.
Wait 3 seconds.
Then , [up], , , [standby].
When the panel comes out of standby you should be in the service menu. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the hours of use page, then put the screen into standby to exit the menu.
I wish I could get this working on mine! Is there a "knack"?
It does work, sometimes it happens first time but more often than not you'll need a few attempts...

Of the 10 or so times I've tried, I've managed it only once......need to see how close I am to the 200 hour figure so that I can arrange the ISF calibration
Try doing the first step twice i.e. put screen into standby then press and release display button wait 3 secs press and release display button wait 3 secs then left, up, left, right switch on.
I had same problem as you, works every time now.
Will this work for the PDP 435 XDE too? I want to see how close I am to the 200 hours as well.
