Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV

2 Answers

TV has no picture, shut off in the middle of a show.

The TV shut off while watching. The green light flashes for a minute, then stops. TV turns on and off, but has no picture or sound. A clicking noise comes from the TV periodically. System Restore does nothing. Any ideas?

    First incident happened today. TV powers up, sound comes on and after a minute shuts down. No picture. Pulled lamp cartridge and found the small vent clogged. Blew it out. No other visible signs of burn-out. No lamp indicator lights on as described in "Trouble Shooting" manuals, no "Air Circulation" messages came on. I understand that it could be a) a lamp, b) a ballast or c) a leeking capacitor? Any "best practices" for trying to diagnosis this rather than throw parts at it. I understand that this is a common problem and there is a class-action suite in the works. I'd rather not spend another $500 bucks in parts on a TV thats already junk.

Greetings!
There's a part inside of your tv that over heat, when a minute comes it stop because of the heat. Better check with a tv technician or repair man before the damage became worse.
Thanks.

If system repair does not work than you need a repair man. the power supply is bad.

Tip

Pix shuts off, green light starts flashing, pix comes back and shuts off again


If you have an issue where your picture turns off and the green power light starts flashing, you are most likely looking at a weak or old lamp. Do not be confused with a pix loss and a RED light flashing, as this can be caused by many things. The normal sequence of events for this fix is this:
1) TV turns on normally, plays for 1 to 3 minutes (may be more or less time)
2) Picture goes out and green power light begins flashing. It may flash for up to 2 minutes
3) green light turns on solid (stops flashing) and picture returns.
4) Picture goes out again and process repeats.

You may have been told that "if the lamp light isn't on, it isn't a bad lamp".
FALSE!
A weak lamp will cause the process above to occur. Other signs of a weak lamp:
The reflector in the lamp is very cloudy
You may see a "growth" or "bubble" on the vertical glass tube which is the lamp
You haven't replaced the lamp in quite some time or it is the original lamp from when you purchased the TV.

In cases like these, try a new lamp. Stick with an original Sony lamp, as there are many stories (both personally witnessed by me and also documented on the web) about problems with after market replacement lamps. And remember, lamps DO NOT have a shelf life; you can store them in a good environment (not too hot or cold!) for an indefinite period with no ill effects.

The other night while watching the tv turned off by itself.


There are two usual causes for this. One is the convergence integrated circuits have failed. The second cause is slight leakage of one or more picture tubes.

RCA DLP TV with a red dot in the middle of the screen


Sounds like the color wheel stopped and re-started. It may continue to function for a while, but could fail at any time.

I've also seen on rare occasion, a defect in a lamp produce uneven color rendition, but its far more likely that the culprit is the color wheel.

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Tv turns off


Its the lamp that needs replacing. It will run for a couple of seconds and then it would dim or turn off.

Green Flashes - Shuts off


Sounds like the green picture tube is defective. To confirm you can take the front grille and door off and tap the green tube lightly with something plastic, and not to touch any of the adjustment controls to confirm.
