If the power switch LED is flashing, chances are the set experienced a short duration power interuption. There are two ways to recover. One is to unplug the set from the wall. The other is to hold the power button in for at least 5 seconds. The power button LED will flash quickly indicating a reset. After about a minute the set should be able to be turned on. These TV's experience a very short lifespan, typically about 3000 hours. If the above instructions haven't solved the problem then check the lamp.

Richard,
Could be a bad spark gap on the ballast board. Should have a tech come in a do some Hv testing to see whether the ballast should be replaced, could make the difference on getting the lamp to last 1000 hrs or 3000 hrs...

Toshiba 52hm95 lamp breaks after only weeks of use


It is as far as the set is concerned, it sees the lamp not on.

Most likely cause would be the lamp ballast that drives the lamp.

Lamp failure in WD-52525


i actually own this tv myself... that striking you here will only occur when the lamp does not fire. as far as lamp life i have found that mitsubishi has the longest lasting bulbs from my experience. i would check to make sure the connector on the lamp is seated properly into the other connector in the tv. if you know your lamp is 100% i would look at replacing the lamp ballast. ive had this tv for a few yrs now and love it.

Every time we turn on the TV, we get the message Did you replace the lamp press ok, if you didn't replace the lamp press cancel. Should I ignore this until the lamp burns out or replace it?


Make sure the AC power source is uninterrupted, plug into a wall to see if this fixes problem. Lamps should be replaced as soon as there is a problem - dim picture or intermittent operation of tv. Mitsubishi lamps last an average of 1-3 years. If you run a lamp longer than 3 years, older lamps start running hotter. When they run hotter, they will damage the optical engine, causing discoloration or the cooling fan to go out. The problem your tv has is that the power/digital module is in the process of going out. There are numerous capacitors that blow, and sometimes the digital board fails. You need to have an authorized shop pull the digital/power module and send to Mitsubishi for rebuild. We charge $225 labor and $300 for the part in our shop for this. It is a good (but expensive) fix!
