    I turn on my set and it starts up with the sound but then the sound turns off and the red lamp light turns on. I have replaced the lamp twice and the problem continues. These are lamps straight from Mitsubishi.

Replace the lamp, model 915P028010.  There is a lamp door on the back left bottom of the set (while looking at it from the back).  Take off the door (two screws) and then take off the two screws holding the lamp in place and pull on the handle.  Replace the lamp the same way.  Then make sure to clean the air filters (below the lamp, two screws; and bottom right).  If the set gets too hot it may destroy the set and/or the lamp.  Also, don't turn the set on and off again within a few moments.  It will destroy the lamp.  Take it from someone who had the same problem, keep the filters clean by cleaning at least once every couple of months....Dave

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

I have a mitsubishi wd-52631 and the red light is solid I just cleaned out the tv and got a new bulb but when I turn the tv on I get about 2 mins of picture and sound before it turns off. Does any one know...


It is possible either did not get all the dirty areas in front, and rear of set cleaned out or even that the ballast for the unit is this problem since it powers the lamp---lamp will come on and then turn off for a number of reasons.

The set does have a self diagnostic feature which usually is:

First of all, I replaced the lamp about 4 months ago, so it is relatively new. The Problem: The TV almost never turns on after the first try. The sound always comes on, the red light stays solid, but...


Some of these sets had a stupid feature. In the customer menu look for something called quick start.

The way you can tell if it is engaged is when you turn the set off the lamp dims but does not go out and the fans stay on all the time, clearly this feature was meant to speed up the turn on time but with it engaged when you turn the set off the lamp is still hot, if you turn it off and try to turn back on it will not function for fifteen or twenty minutes.

If you get the set to come on watch the lamp from the back and then turn the set off, does the lamp just dim down or go off? Lamp fan should run for a maximum of five minutes to cool lamp off, if it does not shut off and lamp only dims down look in the customer menu for quick start and deselect it, it is DEFAULT setting if set was unplugged.

These sets with this feature had problems where the lamp did not last two years.

Before you rate this solution let me know if you find what I described.

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

From the info you gave, it does sound like the lamp is bad. The sound you hear is the ballast trying to ignite what used to be a lamp. The lamp is assessable throught a 6x6 cover usually in the rear of the set held on by usually two screws. After the cover is off ( with a flashlight ) locate the screws(2) that hold the lamp housing in, remove those and it should slide out. Make sure you unplug the set first and remember to reset the lamp timer witch is located in your owners booklet after your done with the set on.
