A broken mirror can result in other issues if it came forward and scratched the inside of the screen----most the mirror can be replaced and the remote as well.

some are not hard to replace the mirror and others are not easy depending on brand and model number.

I think you have one of the models that have two mirrors inside: not Mitsubishi's best idea.

Most have just the large mirror in the back but I think this model has a very small mirror at the bottom (odd shape about 4x6 inches) behind the front screen which faces upwards and gets dirty from the fans inside the set.

It is amazing how much it can dim the picture; Caution, if yours has it the only way to get at it is to remove the entire front screen assembly---a phone call to Mitsubishi will confirm if your model has the two mirrors----the big one never needs cleaning(almost never and is special).

If you find your model has two mirrors either consider having a pro come out and do it (15 min job) or You Tube it to see if instructions there.

look before you leap as this is usually a two person job.

If you have questions let me know.

I have seen this before in these sets

The mirror inside of my 48 in rear projection was kick in where can i find one in the sacramento area, also the front plastic is crack

As long as the screen isn't broken you can live with the crack. The mirror can be cut to size at any shop..but you will need to match the angle perfectly to the old broken mirror

I dropped my flat screen TV. When I turn it on, the screen is broken inside.The outside looks fine...

There is a reflective mirror in that, you probably damage that mirror when you drop it.

As far as the part number I could not tell you. But you need to get this part from the manufacturer. It should be installed by a service teck because when replaced the tv projection system needs to realigned. I hope this helps you.

If the Mirror broke while the TV was sitting upright, the pieces of glass got down inside the light engine and the cooling fans. I don't think you took the light engine apart to clean out all of the glass so the main cooling fan is probably not running and causing the warning. There is no sensor for the mirror. Did you remove the chassis to clean the glass? You cna remove it again and try powering it up out of the cabinet. There are four fans that need to be running. If the light engine is filled with glass the fan at the bottom of the air exhaust will not turn.
I am fairly certain that since the TV was discarded there is more wrong with it than a broken mirror.
