    Hi! We have replaced the lamp twice in our tv. The tv works for a while and then the picture starts getting distorted and the colors are pink and purple. You can hear a noise. When we shut the tv off and let it cool down, it works fine for a while. Is there a fan that may need fixed?

It sounds like the 3300uf caps on the power supply have gone bad.look at them and see if they are pregnant. if so change them. while you have the shield off see if any other caps are pregnant, if so you might want to think about having the chassis repaired.

My Sony KF-42WE610 on power up fan comes on and just a short buzz every minute or so on power down red light comes on stand by but won't shut down i hear the fan running so i had to unplug it.


I think that this is a ballast issue you are not suppose to hear any weird sounds coming from your TV set and if this ballast board is not working it will not be able to turn on the lamp this boards are not that expensive they range from $65.00dls to $90.00dls you need to take the ballast out and get the part number of the board to find the right one

Getting a loud buzzing noise in the rear of my Mitsubishi wd-52327. The sound is coming from the fan area. Originally i thought the fan was bad but after review the fan seems to be working fine. When...


is there a large amount of heat coming from the back? I had a similar issue w/ my tv, and it ended up being the lamp - but a trick that i was able to use to extend the life a little longer was to power the tv off, grab a can of compressed air (can get it anywhere, usually just a buck or two) and blast it right into the vents in the back, cleaning out the dust that accumulates from normal usage. If it is, in fact, the lamp, it's not a tough fix - email me if you have any other questions! Good luck!

My wd52327 turns on and than turns itself off


Thats a very common problem which means that the capacitors on the power PWB have most likely failed. You can get the repair kit which has the replacement Capacitors and step by step instructions with detailed pictures on how to do the repair . Heres a link to the repair kit for your model.

STATUS LIGHT SOLID RED ON 73 DLP MITSU MODEL WD73735


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

Status light on, tv will not respond


if the "status" light is blinking red than you most likely have a fan failure going on inside the set. there are 5 fans in the tv and it could be any one of them.

Red light stays on


First before a reset the set must turn on, if the set just sits there with the red LED on you have further problems, so does the set display anything?

Tv keeps turning off?


cutta, you will most often hear a click on boot then the fans start up and lamp will then fire. The picture will start to show up....at what point does it shut off? and do you hear a click when the tv is turning off? Is it the complete tv shutting down, fans and everything that turns off? Do you see any lights on the the front panel "POWER", "STATUS" or "LAMP", what are they doing? If you see a Power, Status or Lamp light after it shuts off the below are what they mean if there is an issue. POWER - STATUS - LAMP - CONDITION/ISSUE: Off - Yellow - Off - Temp. high/dirty filter/excess room temp Off - Off - Yellow - 4000 hrs. Lamp usage warning Off - Off - Blink Yellow - Lamp Cover open Off - Blink Yellow - Off - Air Filter Cover open Off - Off - Red - Lamp failure (failed to turn On or broken) Off - Blink Red - Off - Fan Has Stopped Off - Red - Off - Circuit failure (short) or DVI cable disconnected If you want to check for the last "Error Code", after you first turn the TV on, by pressing the front panel ?DEVICE? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time and holding them for 5 seconds, it activates the Error Code Mode. The ?Power LED Light? blinks/flashes (1/2 sec delay) and then flashes again denoting a two digit Error Code indicating no problem or an error has occured since the last Initalization. i.e. "Power light" blinks 3 times (1/2 second delay) and then blinks 4 times then 1 sec delay and repeats a few times. This would mean "Error 34 - Lamp abnormality". See below for error codes..... Error Code - Description or issue 12 - No Error detected, check Power Supply 32 - Lamp Cover is open 33 - Air Filter Cover is open 34 - Lamp abnormality 36 - Light Engine (DMD or LAMP Fan stopped) 37 - Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped 38 - Lamp temperature high 39 - DMD temperature high 41 - Short is detected 44 - DVI cable between FMT & Engine disconnected. Sorry for the long answer but it was an open ended question.
