Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WD-52631 "Check airflow"

Our 52" 1080p Mitsubishi will occasionally shut itself off with an error message to "check if airflow is blocked". This is the most annoying thing as it may come right back on, or it may take a long time before it will stay on. It appears that the sensor for temperature is VERY sensitive. Anytime the ambient air temperature changes fro the heat kicking on or off, the TV wants to **** out. Is there any way I can bypass this sensor or decrease its sensitivity?

Common Repairs
For the following models: WD-52631, WD-57731, WD-65731, WD-Y57, WD-Y65, WD-57732, WD-65732, WD-57831, WD-65831, the most common repair problem stems from television shutting off almost immediately after it has been turned on accompanied by the message, "TV will shut down in a few seconds. Please check if the air flow is blocked." According to the Mitsubishi website, this issue is caused by a loose connection as a result of a faulty thermal sensor. For models: WD-73727, WD-73827, WD-73927, WD-73732, WD-7383, the most encountered repair problem has been in relation to the optical engine. Another common situation consumers have encountered is failure of the TV to turn on along with unceasing flashing of the green power light. The solution for this problem, caused by the DM board, will vary by repairman. Consumers have also encountered issues with moving vertical or horizontal lines appearing on the screen which can either be due to problems with the capacitor, light engine, or formatter board. Make sure all bad caps are changed.

The first would be excessive dust causing inadequate airflow through the lamp cage. Cleaning the filter may resolve the problem.

It could also be that one, or both, of the temperature sensors could be defective. This is a known problem to the extent that Mitsubishi extended the warranty an extra two years on your model and similar models with the same design.

As part of our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, MDEA is announcing an extension of the warranty coverage to replace the thermal sensor for the above referenced models.

call Mitsubishi they have a recall on this particular problem. It has a thermal sensor that needs to be replaced, they are picking up the bill on this so it's not suppose to cost anything for this repair.
