Question about Mitsubishi WD-62525 62" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV turns off because of air flow

I have had this TV for almost 5 years in the exact same spot. Over the last two months there has been a meesage that says, "the tv will shut off in the next few seconds. please check the airflow is not being obstructed." Once it shuts down, I remove the filter and clean it. This message used to come up every few weeks, then a few times per week, and just yesterday it shut down twice. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    We have had our tv for 2 years and within the past couple of months we have had the same problem. Initially it only happened once or twice every couple of months, now it's been less than 2 weeks since we have cleaned it and it's happened again.

    Same problem we bought our TV Dec 2006! It starts up and then shuts itself off stating blocked airflow. I can see the fan turning. I read on-line that the heat sensor goes out because the holes in a screen are to small causing a heat build up. Anyone have any ideas as how to remedy this?

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...

I have a mitsubishi 3d dlp tv model wd-73640. The lamp keeps burning out. We have replaced it 3 or 4 times in a year. Do you have any idea why this keeps happening?


These lamps should last around 5 years so I can understand your frustration.

Normally the lamp life is shortened by heat issues? Do you have enough space above, to the sides and back to let air flow in and out of the television? Are all fans working? Are the fans staying on for a while after you turn off the TV?

If you're using a power strip to turn off the TV the fans can't run when the television is turned off and it won't cool properly.

I have the same issue. Bought the TV 1/08 and it started showing those exact symptoms about 3-4 months ago. It generally progresses and gets worse. You can try to fix it as it's some kind of TAB connector issue, or keep calling Sony so that the 52" owners of the XBR4 and 5 series get the extended warranty just like the 46" owners received for the same series. If enough of us keep calling, they'll have to act.

Sony kdl-46xbr4 Black Horizontal Bands When I First Turn on TV


I had the exact same problem with the Sony KDL46XBR4. The problem started 11 months after I purchased the TV (Dec 2007). Luckily I placed the call to Sony just before the 1 year warranty expired and they replaced the entire front panel which is basically the whole TV except for the stand and the plastic frame. Last month the same issue started happening again (5 months since the repair). I called Sony and they say they have a 90 day warranty on the replacement part so I would need to pay out of my own pocket to first have the problem diagnosed (it's the EXACT same problem!) and then pay to have the repair done since the warranty has expired. I asked how much the front panel costs and it's $1,400! I paid $2,100 for the TV when I purchased it. Interestingly, at the time that part was back-ordered.....hmmmm, I wonder why??? Perhaps a recall is warranted here (no pun intended). Needless to say, I have sworn off Sony products due to their lack of support for this issue.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

I repair a lot of these and a average tv lasts like 3 years . It is not like the old days. I suspect the lamp or fans or therm protector.
