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?

Re: Red Lamp

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.

Could be quite a few things wrong. first I would do self test diagnosis and see what error you get, then check that area. It could be a bad Ballast or it could be Fuse F9a09 and the Light Engine. It also could be Caps C9a37 and C9a38. For additional info
