    What is the model number of the unit. If t is only three months old, and with the error code you provided, I thin you have a bad colorwheel. You will have to have an authorized servicer check this. Mitsubishi will not release a colorwheel without and authorized servicer getting authorization from tech support

The colorwheel is your problem. To confirm this, unplug the tv, then listen thru the air vents in the back as you plug the tv in. You will probably hear a ticking sound. If you do, that is the colrwheel. If the colrwheel is working, youwill be able to hear it "spin up". It will be a sudden high pitch whine. Let me know if I can be of further assistance

Try a reset. Start by unplugging for 1 minute, then plug back in & if still won't restart try the following. If none of the following work, you will need a technician.

Initializing the TV in many cases can remedy a problem.
In the 2006 product line Initialization is now a user function.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT' and "FORMAT"
buttons at the same time activates Initialization. When
complete all user settings will have to be set again. The
table in Figure 4-3 list the User Initialization procedures.
Note: Pressing INPUT and FORMAT is the same as
the Initialization in the Option Menu (MENU-2-4-7-0)

Blinking green status light


Unplug for a few minutes then plug back in to try to reset it. Sometimes it could take as long as overnight before pluging back in to reset. Number of blinks is usually a trouble code.

The 18 code does not exist. To read the code press device/input button and menu button at the same time on the tv. count the LED flashes 1st digit short pause 2nd digit long pause, repeats.

The red status lamp indicates there is no communication between the format board and the DMD board (light engine). The most common problem for this is capacitors on the Format board that require hours of labor and possibly sending the entire electronics package to Mitsubishi if the caps don't do the trick. Expect a very large bill, contact you local Mitsubishi Authorized repair facility about this, DO NOT take a chance on your corner repair shop to know how to accomplish this.

Continuosly blinking green light and tv won't turn on.


Either bad capacitors -vented - on power supply board or bad E2P eprom board on DM board.Probably the capacitors-4-1000Ufd and 2-3300ufd.You should get expert help from reputable tv shop.Not really do it yourself fix either way.

You can download a PDF from here: http://www.servicemanuals.net/results.aspx?type=SM&brand=0&model=50EX20B Make sure that the coolant is not leaking out onto the printed circuit boards. i have had the remote sensor cause this problem before and also I have had bad capacitors in the sweep and the main power supplies. Good Luck
