Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.
TY-LA1001 Timer reset
While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.
Typically this is a indication you have a Power Supply problem and not something you can fix with out a repairman unless you have knowledge of the Power supply Circuits in these models . Play it safe. Get a repairman who is authorize by Mitsubishi to look at it.
Hope this Helps,
Yes this is the signal for a bad lamp. Other things can cause this. 1. Look at the new lamp. make sure it still looks good. not broken with little glass pieaces in it. 2. When you turn on the tv, put your ear to the lower back part of the tv near the middle. Listen for the start up of the color wheel (a low high pitch sound only at the start up of the motor). If this is good you will here a ticking sound only if the lamp dose not light.
Now with all this info. If the lamp lights (as seen from the back of the set) and goes out after a few seconds and you did not here the color wheel spin up, the color wheel is bad.
If you here the color wheel spin up and no ticking sound, the Ballast is bad.

The color wheel is not avialable from Mits. You will have to replaced the light engine. It cost to much. Just buy a new tv.
