"Overheating warning" Everytime I turn the tv on a warning displays that says "TV will shut off soon, check if airvent if covered". The air vent isn't covered. What could be causing this? Can i spray some of that compressed air in the air vent and clear it out? I recently moved it a couple miles but I had it covered with a blanket and I was very careful. Let me know what ya think.

Re: "Overheating warning"

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source)

My tv keeps shutting down it asks me to check air flow

Check air flow error message appears if the vent at the back of the set is clogged. It is the primary inlet for air that is required to cool the set. You may want to verify that its not clogged. If you can't find it, then unplug it, remove the back cover and blow a can of compressed air at the cover. If the fault was indeed correctly detected, your set should work when the vent is unclogged.

My tv keeps overheating

Make sure that you clean out all vent holes behind set. My own dlp has shut off from poor air circulation due to dust and debris in the air. The cooling fans must have good circulation or the set has tempurature sensors to shut it off. Use a brush or vacuum on all the small vent holes around the set. Also, alot of these sets have filters that clog up. Check the owner's manual or look for a small door where a filter could be around the base of the unit. If this doesn't solve the problem you need a service person to check it out for you. Good luck, Russmann.

My TV turns off. As soon as I turn it back on it

try the lamp door switch in the back of the TV, door is held on by 1 screw, after door is open there is a blue switch by the slide that protects the lamp. push the switch down and up a couple of times then put cover back on and see if tv stays on. this was my problem with this exact tv.

Mitsubishi DLP overheating

Mitsubishi has problems with the thermal sensor going bad. They extended the warranty for several sets. The sensor is right by the lamp. Call mitsubishi and insist they do something for you. If you keep playing your set, the bulb could also be at risk. I would think your set is covered being a 62" set. Good-luck and be sure to act ASAP.

Sony KDS60A2000 shuts off after about being on for 10 minutes, gives a warning set will turn off as it is overheating. Vacummed around the vents and that hasn't made any difference.

check all the fans and make sure they are clean and not plugged up w/dust.also check how many times the red light flashes on the front of the tv after shutting down.4 flashes indicates a bad fan.

check your air intake filters, it's a removeable filter in the air inlets.
