The set contains two air filters within they are gonna be clogged up not allowing air to move smooth or a bad fan or one going bad the set has four fans two 80mm fans to check a 120mm fan and a blower fan below the lens. If it flashes then goes to red then you hit power and it starts up. Then it's a fan or a air filter issue must check line voltage. For each fan

Mitsubishi dlp tv model wd-62627 wont power on when i plug tv in green light flas then will stop then i try to power on tv after after green light stops flashiing after oabout 30 sec red lamp light co


Inspect the lamp first to see if shattered--set has a self check feature also:

Mitsubishi TVtroubleshooting
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and getthe regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons togetherfor about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filtercover 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 cablebetween FMT and Engine disconnected

There are 7 capacitors that need replacing in you digital module, it is located on the left hand side facing the back of the set.

Sounds like a defective lamp diever or ballast.Listen for a buzzing sound when you turn the set on. If you do not hear it then most likely you have a bad ballast or lamp driver. Worst case scenerio would be the engine itself.

Yes this is the signal for a bad lamp. Other things can cause this. 1. Look at the new lamp. make sure it still looks good. not broken with little glass pieaces in it. 2. When you turn on the tv, put your ear to the lower back part of the tv near the middle. Listen for the start up of the color wheel (a low high pitch sound only at the start up of the motor). If this is good you will here a ticking sound only if the lamp dose not light.

Now with all this info. If the lamp lights (as seen from the back of the set) and goes out after a few seconds and you did not here the color wheel spin up, the color wheel is bad.

If you here the color wheel spin up and no ticking sound, the Ballast is bad.

The ballast part no. 939P978010

The color wheel is not avialable from Mits. You will have to replaced the light engine. It cost to much. Just buy a new tv.

My best gess is the Ballast.
