Question about Mitsubishi WD73727 73" HDTV
I just purchased a used Mit WD-73727 DLP TV. After setting it up and watching it for about an hour or so, the set turned itself off and the lamp LED came on red. Going thru the diagnostics, I got an error code 34. At this point I think the bulb just burned-out on me, but I resent the system and went to bed. The next morning, I try to turn the TV on. It starts up fine, no problems. Of course, I only had it on for 8-10 min 'cause I had to head to work.
Do you think it's the lamp? I was under the impression (maybe wrongly so) that once it was gone, it was gone.
I got a really good deal on the set and if I need to drop $200 on a lamp I'm still ahead. But if it's something major, I'd like to return the ASAP.
Thanks in Advance!
I have a 2 year old Mitsubishi Rear Projection 52" model WD-52525. I recently experienced the same problem as you. My TV quit without any warning and the red lamp light came on. I bought a replacement lamp just like you did, did everything you did too, but it still didn't work either. Since it's past the 1 yr warranty (of course), I took it in to an authorized service center for an estimate. They determined the light engine failed and it will cost me $816.35 to repair. I already shelled out $240+ for a lamp, $48 for the repair estimate and I said "hell" no, I'm not going to fix it for another $800+ and bought a new TV. I'm writing a letter to Mitsubishi expressing my deep dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) with this faulty product and will be requesting reimbursement, which I probably won't get. I sincerely hope this is not the same problem your TV has, but if it is be prepared for a costly fix.

There are a few things that could cause this. The lamp is the most common but I have seen some other werid thing cause this problem (ballast and engine) changing the lamp would be a good way to "shotgun" the repair but if you want to know for certain you will need to call someone out that can troubleshoot it the right way. Good luck and if you need any more information please let me know.

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
