Mitsubishi WD-57731 57 In. Has audio but no picture shuts off

I have a mitsubishi WD-57731 57 In. DLP. When I power it up I get audio but no video it makes a whirring light clicking electrical sound in the back like its trying to fire something up for about 3 or 4 sec then stops then repeats the sound again. This usually cycles 2 or 3 times then the tv shuts down. I have replaced the bulb in the last 6 months. I am wondering if this sounds like a ballast or if it is something else. The lamp indicator has only turned on one time during the 6 or 7 times ive power the tv up. There where no warning it just suddenly shut itself off last night.

Thank you for your help.

    I haven't pulled the bulb yet I will do that tonight just to double check. It just went out in a different way than last time the bulb had gone out and the sound it was making was a sound I had not heard the television make before.

    I have this same exact problem, same exact situation too. The Clicking, whirling, and eventual shut down. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a 6 year old Magnavox 50" DLP HDTV.  It was working well. Then, I heard a somewhat loud noise from the back of the tv, like a pop.  I lost signal and tv shut down with the lights turning on the front, the power light to red=off but the big indicator light turned on BRIGHT red and stayed.  I unplugged the tv, let it sit and after a bit, turned it back on.  The tv came on with full audio of the channel I was on, but had NO picture.  It sat like this for a bit and then shut off again.  I opened up the back and see this thing spinning and looking like it is trying to 'light' but then the tv shuts down again.  Any help here would be great!

    Hi, Good! The hv power supply makes a charging up sound and then when it hits charge it will try to fire the bulb, it will try this 2- 3 times. There is also a light wheel that spins but shouldn't make any clicking unless something is touching. My guess is the sound you are hearing is the bulb arcing. Do you get any blinking lights? these will blink a code to help you troubleshoot the problem.

    Hi, Have you pulled the bulb to have a look? 6 months or not still sounds like the bulb.

SOURCE: Replaced lamp and now can't get a picture

Hi Sally Jo, Unit powers on and works properly for a while then shuts off with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 3. At power on the lamp turns on and off three times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the Light Engine part # 939P977010 4. Check for 12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part # 283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977010 5. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 6. Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if missing replace the Power PCB part # 934C148001. Hope this helps!

The WD62825 has a Digital Module located on the left side of the chassis looking at it from the rear of the set. It's housed in a metal box that can slide out of its holder after removing the trim screws.
The module has its own power supply board and there are a group of 16v/1000uf caps on that board which commonly fail causing the constant flashing standby light. Further back on the module is a small board about the size of a matchbook called the E2P module. Its SMT (Surface Mount Technology) caps also commonly fail which can cause the same symptoms. Techs can tell whether the E2P has failed by simply removing it, hooking the DM back up and trying to power the set. If it powers on the picture won't be much good - but at least you can tell what's keeping it down...
Back to the caps on the pwr board. If they've failed they usually will buldge visibly on top. And ESR is almost not necessary. In any event that's the nuts and bolts on this model.
Is it a job for a layman? Yes and no - you might strongly consider a tech if you don't feel comfortable removing all the connections that the DM has with the signal board. There are about six - multi-pin - wired connections to unplug and then sliding the DM out of the unit and carefully removing the screws and latching to take the DM top cover off...
Hope this helps.
Bill

usually with that model when you get a 34 eror code for lamp abnormality, its directly related to the capacitors on the Power Pwb. You can get the V26 Power PWB repair kit at the following link which repairs that issue. It contains the replacement High temp capacitors with the board location numbers and PWB identification as well as the service manual on CD. Heres the link its under their repair kit ctegory.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WD-52525 52-inch DLP HDTV ywllow warning lamp light

that means your lamp it is getting to the end of its life.
sometimes even if the lamp still good the TV will send you that message because that timer is closed to 5000 hours

What you can do is open the lamp door, closed again and the tv will ask you if you replaced it the lamp, and just say yes and that sign will go away

or just simple replace the lamp. 915P020010

Mitsubishi WD-62526 turns on-n-off


I would bet the illumination lamp has reached the end of it's life (~$40 online). Should be easy to replace. Also possible the ventilation vents need cleaning, which could cause the lamp to overheat and turn off.

Posted a short while ago but have more information Mitsubishi DLP WD 52725 - sound no picture - blinks 3 short times and 1 long time


have you checked the lamp? with those models they will power up and if the lamp is bad you can hear audio until the tv shuts off. the lamp is located in the front behind the speaker grill assembly. if the "status" light is blinking then you are having a fan failure if the "lamp" light is on then check the lamp like i listed above.

New bulb/TV still shuts down


Its far more likely the result of the power pwb capacitors that have failed. As the 34 code will appear if the capacitors fail on the Power PWB. You can get the V26 DLP Power repair kit at the following link.with free instructions
