I have been getting the air flow problem since I bought the tv. I had to place a small fan behind tv to rectify even though there is about 2ft. of space behind and about 8ft on either side. (2) I also had the bulb go out about a week ago.I received a new bulb but now the timer hold light keeps blinking. I tried the system reset, unplugged it again for a while and still no tv. This
all started under warranty but now my warranty is out by one day after ordering lamps and talking to phone operators. PLEASE HELP fantasy football fanatic
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.

I'm not sure if this is the professional way:) -- but when my pansonic 1080i was acting up just like that - I placed a small fan at the back of the right side of the TV unit and faced it towards the TV air vents and voila the TV stays on and stays cooler. No more blinking lights. I don't think the cooling fan that draws the air out of the TV was working and the TV was overheating. Saved me some money in repairs and after a year it is still working well. A quick and cheap fix - but it worked.
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
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.
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
I have the 50" SXRD TV and have expereienced many of the same problems as other owners. Sony replaced the optical block at no charge after the screen yellowing effect took place. Recently, I have the TV shut down with the flashing red light blinking in sequences of 4. After unplugging the TV for a few minutes, replugging it, and turning it back on, it worked again. However, this was not a pemanent solution as the problem returned. After reading several posts here, I turned the TV to look into the fans and voila, the one on the left was not spinning.
I took the back off of the TV (9 screws) and took apart the fan housing to vacuum everything. In addition, I vacummed everything else I could see. After putting it back together, the problem was solved. Save yourself a repair call. Get out a phillips screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner. Thanks to the posters on this site!!
