I admit not having seen this model but if a DLP with lamp it has fans.

A common issue with sets is while house/home may be spotless the fans also intake air and ANY dust in the air.

I have seen many where the airflow inside the set gets blocked with dust on the fans and paths themselves----many when taken outside and blown clean with compressed air look like a dust storm and suddenly the set now works.

Even a moderate amount on fan blades will cause the fans to run a little slow which will trigger the overheat isssue especially on the Lamp fan which cools that part.

I know people who live in spotless homes do not like to hear this but it is rather common.

A reset if it exists for this set will NOT help this kind of issue---I see you have posted this issue in several places on the internet so consider that not all issues can be corrected with a reset and it is possible I am correct here----no major parts are required to prove or disprove this---in fact nothing to lose by trying it---as proof I offer a link to another set with a somewhat similar problem whose answer has helped several other people---I keep track:

SOURCE: Lamp Light Red - No Screen Image

It could be the a problem with the lamp ballist circuit, or just a bad lamp socket, or simply a bad lamp. The only way to tell is to call out a servicer as that would be alot less expensive then to get a new lamp and then that not be the problem. These problems can be a little hair pulling at times, thats why i have no hair left!! LOL Good Luck

SOURCE: Lamp Hour Meter

This proceedure should work for your model to reset the lamp meter.
Lamp Time Reset Procedure:
Be sure to reset the Lamp time to "0" after replacing the new
Lamp.
1. Plug in the AC Cord, and turn on the power by pressing the
POWER button.
2. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button on the unit and
the SPLIT key on the remote together for over 5 seconds
in power on condition.
When the reset is finished, the display will indicate that the lamp hrs have been reset to 0 and the LAMP LED goes out.

SOURCE: Samsung 50" DLP - Lamp Light Blinking after bulb replacement

Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.

Is there audio and is when was the last time a welcome screen came on (in other words, are you even getting that anymore)? I have the same TV but I only get the Mitsubishi Splash Screen only comes on when the TV powers off so I'm a little confused by that. Also how bad were the vents and filters when you cleaned them out and how is the ventilation behind the set? Have you checked the lamp? That's a two year-old set, now so I'm kind of leaning on you needing a new lamp. I had to have mine replaced last summer. You're supposed to get 4,000 - 6,000 hours out of them but depending on your environmental conditions, that lifespan can be dramatically reduced as dust buildup and poor ventilation will cause it to overheat the lamp and normally before it's going to go bad, the TV knows this and starts getting hinky as you described (will come on but then shut-off, etc.). In my case between the wife and three kids and the dad (me) who only gets to watch his shows on the DVR after all the kids are asleep, our set is on 8 - 11 hours a day and longer when I watch the kids at home two days a week so I easily blew through the lamp lifespan in 18 months.
You should check the lamp. Refer to your manual, but it's only two screws in the lower right of the back of the TV, Use rubber gloves as well. If it is the lamp go to Mitsubishi's website and order them. They're OEM and only $100 and cheaper than any of the after-market ones. Also Mitsubishi warranties them and if you need it immediately, you can call them to place the order and just pay an extra $50 for overnight delivery. I've had to do this my TV and my in-laws and I've been very satisfied with the Mitsubishi customer service.
Let me know how it turns out.

LG Rear Projection 44" will not turn on


Make sure you reinstall the lamp door as there is a lamp door switch that must be closed or the unit will not fire the lamp, there should be a small hole or opening on lamp door housing. Some people install the lamp without reclosing the door just to see if the unit works , just to find out if it will not work, and when it does;nt think something is wrong, they do not put the lamp door back on first. Not to say this is the case but it does happen.
