Question about Mitsubishi WD-57731 57" Projection HDTV
In the last 3 days my HDTV picture shuts off suddenly with no warning. The red light comes on steady. After 3 minutes it will start up again and everything appears OK. This has happened 6 times so far. The bulb was replaced under warranty already 10 months after purchase. Can't picture it being a bulb problem since it has a great picture once it comes on again. Any ideas?
There is a list of things you need to check, but offhand I'd say that the 5 volt line is low and probably right on the"edge", which is why it works sometimes and not others take a look at this list:
1. (Lamp may light and go out) suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Check for
12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check
for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part #
283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977010 3. (Lamp may light and go out)
Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if
low or missing check C9A37 and C9A38 both 3300 UFD 10 V part # 181P732040 on the
Power PCB (part # 930B921002) 4. At power on the lamp turns on and off three
times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the
Light Engine part # 939P977010 5. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch
to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light
Engine part # 939P977010 6. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the
Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on and does go to 0-volts (low)
after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Lamp Power PCB
(ballast) part # 939P978010 7. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the
Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-
volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light
Engine part # 939P977010
I would say try #3 first, the two caps on the pwer supply board. A couple of warnings: as always, unplug the unit before servicing. The power supply is located on the left side, if you behind the unit. It is in a shielded box and the shield has VERY SHARP EDGES so use care when you try to open it or you will slice your fingers.
