Re: flashing red light

Just make sure the lamp door is on straight/properly. Also make sure the lamp is installed correctly. Do not overtighten the lamp door screw or you may break it or strip it. The door should fit on striaght so just make sure the metal bracket fits along the door correctly and tighten the screw but don't overtighten.

My mitsubishi flashes a red light what does that mean

Red light is usually lamp indicator---may be time to replace the lamp--they have a 2000 hour life span except for generic ones which last half that long----when was lamp last replaced? also the set does have a self check:

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.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Heard a pop. Checked and had to replace the lamp. Now when turned on the power-standby flashes green, then flashes red, but TV never comes on.

How many times red light flashing?
This is an error code and red flashing count indicates a particular problem in specific section of tv, please count how many times red light flashing after 3 seconds long pause and post here to suggest a solution.

The fan dont turn on when i turn on the tv and the red light is flashing

Red light flashing on tv indicates that tv got some problem and shifted to protection mode to avoid further damage.
If Lamp light is flashing on tv then check lamp that would be dead or broke, replace lamp to solve tv problem.
If standby red light is flashing on tv then let me know how many times it is flashing after 3 seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.

Lamp replaced and the set doesn't come on.

Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly after lamp replacement.
3 blinks shows that lamp cover is either not put back or not fixed properly in its position.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times

Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.

Standby LED flashes red 4 times with pause then 4 times

You either have a bad fan or one of the rotation sensors mounted on one of the fans has failed. Take the back off the set and see it the main fan slightly right of center is rotating. If it is, there are two more fans, one mounted right above the lamp and another on the optical block itself. You will have to pull the optical block to check those.
