Ditched mitsubishi. Tired of talking to people in other countries that keep putting me off until my warranty was up then tell me there is nothing they can do for me. This all started under warranty but nothing was ever done. The remedy is to not purchase from chains like circuit city but to use a service what they sell store. My next TV will not even sound like the word mitsubishi. My fault for investing that much money without doing the proper research. I looked at everything but their service record.

Heater/ac fan does not blow even though compressor turns on with switch


The blower fan uses a voltage ballast block to control the different speeds. Sounds like it needs to be replaced. However, usually the highest speed still works, but not necessarily.
This is an inexpensive part and usually easy to change.
The voltage ballast issue. this is an electrical block which controls voltage to change fan speeds. Usually found under the passenger side dash, right in the air flow comming from the fan and inside the air flow housing. Usually held in by 2 or 3 screws with a connector and 3-4 wires sticking out. this should be under $20 to buy and quite easy to change, if you can find it. Try behind glove box etc. Do not test the new one without it being in place, as it may burn out very quickly without the air flow to cool it.
Good luck

You may notice frost on the panel that covers the evaporator coil in the freezer. This is a tell tale sign of the coil being frozen up blocking air flow.
Inside the freezer compartment is where the evaporator coil is located. It is behind a cover that allows air to enter the bottom and then forced out the top by a small fan. You should be able to feel the air flow coming out the top. If no air flow the evaporator coil may be frozen and needs to be defrosted. There is a heater at the bottom of the coils which aids in this and may need to be replaced. A couple of screws usually holds the cover in place. Remove the cover and place a small fan in the door to aid in melting the ice. Do not apply heat of any kind ie hot water, blow dryer etc because this can over pressurize the coils and damage the system. The heater may look like a small light bulb. It can be checked with an ohm meter for continuity to see if it needs to be replaced.

Hello, my fridge is not cooling well, but my freezer is working fine, can you identify the problem? There is no ice jam where the cool air comes from freezer to the fridge.


Can you see the coil in the freezer? It may be located behind a panel accessible from inside the freezer. Even though the air duct is clear if the self defrost is not thawing the coil daily it will turn into a block of ice and stop the air flow from the small fan. The other option would be the small fan motor stopped working. Either way its an easy fix in most cases and parts for either job should be under $50.

Get a small but powerful used computer fan and place it in the TV to replace the defective old fan.That's the best way.The factory fans in these TVs don't last.

Make sure your filter screens are kept clear.
Protect Components from Overheating
• Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.
• Don’t stack components.
• If you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow around
other components.
Hope this helps!. Otherwise in your owners manual, under troubleshooting it states:
TV turns off while playing
• Sleep Timer, Wake-up Timer, or Watch feature may have been activated. Go to page 45 or 69 for instructions.
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this
happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• The sleep timer may be set.
• Unplug. Wait five minutes. Plug in again.
Hope this help you out.

Infocus x2...the bulb melts the small square lens even w/ fan on


there is more than one fan inside. one of them may not be working. also, if there is excessive dust inside, the heat won't leave. blow out all of the dust with canned air. if one of the fans are running slow, replace it. lastly, do not use an aftermarket lamp. get a good one from the comapny.

Bulb went out


This maybe a McGuyver thing. Last thing you want to do is block the air flow to cool down your TV set. I would blow out all the dust, get a HEPA filter for house ventilation, get a computer cooling fan. Cut and put the filter in front of the fan, make the fan blow in to the TV vent in the back, that way it blows clean air in and keeps dirty air out. I hope that's one good idea.

I have a Mitsubishi DLP 1080p TV with air flow problems


Hello ags98,

First I would suggest that you re-seat the bulb and then check the cooling fan, and air flow path. In addition to checking the fan make sure all air flow ingress and egress vent are unobstructed.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Amber system light is on


had the same issue, we even had a personal fan blowing air behind the tv and the message always comes up right when we turn on the set and the tv turns itself off after about 30 seconds. did some research and it turns out there is no air flow problem just a faulty temperature sensor inside the set. Mitzubishi knew about this since 2006 but didn't really aknowlege it until more recently, they admitted it was a problem with the sensor and are now extending everyone's warenty by 2 extra years so if you got it with a year warenty and you bought it less than 3 years ago, call mitzubishi's 800 number and tell them the temperature sensor needs to be replaced, they'll get you in touch with the nearest service center and a service man will come out and replace the sensor at no charge for parts or labor. hope this helps
