Question about Mitsubishi WS-55315 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Red Lamp I was watching my 65" Mitsubishi 1080p DLP and all was good. I turned it off for about a half hour and when I returned to watch a game something was wrong. When I turn it on, I get a black screen with sound for about 1 to 2 mintues then the tv shuts off and a red "lamp" light comes on. I tried a system reset but got the same result. This unit was not cheap and I have only had it for 11 months. Any suggestions?

    Same exact problem here too.

  • Anonymous Jan 29, 2008

    Bought this model less than 2 years ago. It is not working cause the lamp burned out. There is a steady red light in front. Read the manual and the problem is the lamp. If you spend 2k on a tv you should expect it to last at least 5 years if you just use it 2 hrs a day. I recommend that Mitsubishi should not be manufacturing this kind of TV cause it will just destroy there name. I have a friend who has to replace his lamp 2 times in one year. I do not recommend this model to anybody or any model using projection lamp.

    I have the same problem...had the TV for one year. It sounds to me like it is the lamp. I get a black screen with sound but no picture. It is not a cheap TV by any means...I would have hoped it would have lasted longer!

    How much to replace?

    I have had the same problem for 2 two yrs and this is my 3rd go round. I bought it through Best Buy. Only a Yr to repair from Miz. and then you should be an extend warrenty for another 150 per year for 3 yr max. These units are notorious for this problem. About $1,500 to repair lights. CALL MITZUBISHI AND COMPLAIN AND SCREAM...Maybe we can have a Class Action Law Suit.

Time to replace your lamp.  The very same thing happened to me.  According to the manual you should receive a warning on screen but I didn't.  The day it happened I did notice the tv was very dim for a bit when I first turned it on in the am.  It is an easy fix and you can do it yourself.  Expect to replace it anywhere from 1 to 1/2 years.  If it's under a year I think it would still be under warranty.  However for me after replacing the lamp, the fan is making a lot of noise and the techs want $200 to fix it.

Powers off and the lamp light goes red

The lamp will sometimes not turn dark before they start to go out. The life on these lamps are usually a year to a year and a half but, depending on when you purchased it in 2008 it may still be in warranty the lamp has 1 year on it.
