This one is tough. Can be either the DM module, formatter board or optics block assy. Check for bad capacitors first in DM module, then signal board then formatter board. If your lucky, bad capacitors maybe what it is. If not, a new optics block is what you'll be needing.

There is something I remember and it may be the model you have---Mitsubishi can tell you or you can look for yourself----a few models made at about the time this set was made had 2 mirrors----one a tiny one that faces up and reflects the picture into the large rear mirror.
Dumb idea--the little mirror gets coated with dust and brightness drops up to 70%---
The safe and correct way to know is to remove the entire front screen with its frame---both mirrors (if yours has 2) will be easy to see.
The large mirror hangs at a angle and down so it never gets dirty--don't even think of touching it or using glass cleaner on it--any mark on it will show in the picture.
let me know if you want to remove screen unit to see if one mirror or two---a call to mitsubishi would answer that.
HI, i have the same problem. I had a tech come out and he was like this is the second one of these today! He said the chassis needed to be rebuilt. 300.00 for the chassis and 80.00 for shipping and another 250.00 to install. I called MItsubishi and they offered me a 65838 for the same price plus 200.00 shipping. So i sent them a money order and received my t.v 1-14-11 only to open the box and the screen was broken right under the glare cover. Now i have to have a tech come out and ***** the t.v to see what Mitsubishi will do. What a pain in the ***. I will never buy a Mitsubishi again. Good luck.
I had the same problem a year ago. Turned out that the main chassis was bad. Had to have it rebuilt for $550. Was working perfectly until the recent problem with the set turning itself off just started.
Most likely the lamp is burnt out (indicator goes to constant red status). Replace lamp (get lamp P/N from User Manual for replacement), clean any dirt around lamp, fan, and rear filter. Do NOT get any fingerprints on new lamp.
I have the same problem with my tv, my tv tech said mitsubishi knows of the problem and knows how to fix it, but it would cost me 700.00 plus his labor to take out the chassis and send it in to mitsubishi, plus I would be without a tv for up to a month. this is b.s.
Good Day, jmkay;
I see no reason why you can't do this yourself, but unlike the pioneer you have to approach the Mit's from the back and will have to remove the back from the screen (sort of)....charge you battery and Good Luck, big IRISH.
