Question about Mitsubishi WD-52327 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Light Engine Issues

A few months ago my tv kept telling to to check the airflow then it would shut down. I had a technician come out and he told me that it needed to be replaced because my house was so dusty because of all the pets I have. I try to keep the back of the tv vacuumed but it had started acting up again. Today, it just shut down and the lamp light came on. I was able to turn it back on after a few minutes and now it is working fun. Is there anything else I can do to keep it clean. The technician was a real jerk and told me if I had the same problem again, they would no repair it for me.

Re: Light Engine Issues

Most likely cause of your trouble is a connect to a themister that is bad. It's not usually the kind of repair that a non-technican would handle. If you have the warning come on randomly even when you just turned the set on the trouble is not dust but it's not a kill the set trouble. you should be able to get it repaired for about $200 or so. The parts are very little but you must remove the light engine and reinstall.
Some alignment etc.
Call another local Mitsubshi guy and tell him you think you need the Lamp thermoster replaced.

Re: Light Engine Issues

Stactic electricity attracts dust in all sets so if there was someway you could blow dust away from set like small fan. It will not get 100% and may not even 60% but any bit helps. You can't keep all dust from them so try your best to keep clean dust regular in back. Hope this helps!

TV turns off because of air flow

It is probably a bad temp sensor inside the TV. My 73" started shutting down before it was a year old. I moved it way out from the wall and it got a little better. A tech was just out to change the bulb under an extended warranty and he said there is a service bulletin about the temp sensor. If your TV is out of warranty you might call Mits and see if they will cover the sensor replacement. Tech said it takes about a 1/2 hour in the home to change it...

Tv not turning on

I also have this model. A few months ago, when I turned on the tv, it told me my lamp was in need of replacement. just yesterday, my tv did the same as you....the blue light flashed and then the lamp light kept flickering. All I can say is your lamp needs to be replaced.

Shut Down Message

The repair is to have the DLP engine replaced!!
FYI: The engine also can cause the set to shut down without any display or might even tell you the lamp door is open when it is not.

How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?

Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
