Question about Mitsubishi WD-62327 62" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Mitsubishi WD-62327 62 in

I have the same tv , the warning for the bulb came on about a month ago and the tv went dark on Friday the 9th. I got another bulb but it doesn't work. The power comes on, there is a humming noise like a jet engine starting up, but not as loud (lol) then the noise repeats itself. Then the lamp light blinks green, then turns solid red. Could this be the ballast and is that easy to replace? I also put the light inside without the cage to make sure the connection was true and I put a screwdriver in the slot in front as though the cover was on. The light still didn't work. What gives?

Check mitsubishi updated service flash. remove the thermal sensor and put a jumper across the connctor. if this does not fix it then replace the power board.

Not likely to be the ballast... Let's throw this in for help, from the Mits ASC site:
Shuts Down With Red Lamp LED
1. Unit powers on and works properly for a while then shuts off with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977020 3. At power on the lamp turns on and off three times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the Light Engine part # 939P977020 4. Check for 12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part # 283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977020 5. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977020 6. Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if low or missing check C9A37 and C9A38 both 3300 UFD 10 V part # 181P732040 on the Power PCB part # 934C148001 From the noise you described it could also be that the color wheel is failing. Fans and the color wheel can cause shutdown. And if any of this sounds too complicated it's time to bite the bullet and take it into the shop. Find a reputable shop and one that will give you a written estimate before proceeding. If you ned help locating one try the NESDA locator: Hope this helps. Bill

    Boiled down it's probably the color wheel, but that's a guess based on 20 years in the business... Take it to a shop!

My picture went very low where you can barly see it

By low, do you mean dark that you can hardly see a pic. If so then the bulb is going out, if its the same kind of tv as mine. Go on Mitsubishi site, and order new bulb, they are pretty easy to replace, instructions on too!

I have a mitsubishi wd 65738. My picture suddenly went dim. I can still see a picture but the room has to be very dark and its still hard to see. Do I just need to replace a bulb?

Its bulb has got traoubled or its control circuit has some faut with it. it is not a user serviceable item. Replacing bulb can be done by the user according to the instructions in its user manual. But trouble shooting its control section must be done be any experienced service technician. OK.

Mitsubishi WD-62531 Replaced lamp 2 weeks ago. Red light flashing again. Same problem but the lamp is fine. Sound but no picture.

You have either a bad ballast (it powers the lamp) or a bad DMD board. Either one of those will result in a no lamp fire issue. Have a technician look at it...

My Mitsubishi DLP wd-57731 has a green hue in dark scenes where there is little light. I replaced the bulb about 4 to 5 months ago. What could be the cause? Thanks.

It sounds like you might need a new light engine, make sure the lamp is the original replacement, if it is then you are in for major and pricey repair, close to $1000 good luck, Julio at Millenium TV (702) 736-1091

TV made popping sound and then shut off

You need to look in your owners manual for the telephone number and order a new bulb. It should cost about $200, but they will ship it overnight and minimize your downtime.

I've replaced 2 in my WD-52525 in the last 3 years, the first one went like yours did, very suddenly, with an audible POP!! The second one was preceded by an orange warning light, which the book says is a warning that the bulb has about 20 hours left on it.

To replace the bulb, UNPLUG THE TV, remove the left speaker screen, with a philips screw driver unscrew the bulb, pull it out by the handle, then replace it with the same type, in reverse order. This is a very easy replacement that does NOT need to be done by a service technician to complete.
