Hi,
How old is this TV and have you replaced Lamp in TV?
Seems TV needs new Lamp as existing lamp seems weak in result and protection circuit senses it and causing restart TV.
Please buy original Mitsubishi Lamp for TV safety. Click Mitsubishi Support page and click on PARTS link, that will open another page, put correct TV model and check original Lamp price.
Thanks.

    ================================================

    Is it Mitsubishi WD-65831 TV or some other model?

    Error code 34 means Lamp abnormality.
    Please confirm replaced lamp is Mitsubishi Original and it was not after market or cheaper one.
    Next possible cause of error code 34 is ballast lamp power supply board. Here you need qualified TV tech to find out its bad and replace it.
    Thanks.

    =====================================================================

    Ballast power board is separate from lamp housing and it drives the lamp in TV. you can identify easily if you follow 2 thick wires of lamp that will take you to ballast board.

    so if the ballast or ballast board are bad it could cause the problem . any thing else ?.
    ====================================================================

    Ballast or ballast board is same thing. It is power supply board that provide high voltage to Lamp in TV to produce back light. It is common thing in all DLP TVs and multimedia projectors. (lamp and ballast board design would be changed though)
    Error code 34 does not show any thing else bad in TV.
    Thanks.

The set may have a self check mode or error buffer--most of these that do with the set turned off: Display, 5, vol. down and then power.

If it has the buffer a box will appear in middle of screen with several items listed-----------all should have a 0 to the right of them---a number indicates a error detected and noted.

If no error found or no display for that contact Sony for the reset code which usually is gained by going into tech menu (different from error menu) and with remote pressing 7 and enter---this does a hard reset and returns set to all factory defaults--if that did not cure it you have a interesting trouble...........

My tv shuts off every 30 min after will reseting it makes a difference if it does where is the reset button


when the set shuts off on the front of the set press and hold input and menu buttons at same time for at least five seconds and let both go.

Power light will blink an error code like two blinks, two blinks, a pause and repeat it several times; error code will give some idea where problem is, 1,2 blinks is no error found.

The TV was working great yesterday, but today, when you press the power button, th TV clicks on, then within 5 seconds clicks off, picture never appears but green light comes on until TV clicks off. ...


When the power light comes on and then goes out, on the front of the set press both the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time and hold them both in for at least 5 seconds and then release both buttons.

The power light will blink a 2 digit error code and repeat it at least 5 times.

The most common error will be 2 blinks, 2 blinks- a pause and then it will repeat it for a total of at least 5 times.

To get it to repeat this--you have to unplug the set, try to turn it on again and repeat the process.

The error codes are to try to narrow down where the problem is.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it means.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Post comment here if I can assist you further.

Mitsubishi projection tv picture and sound turn off but the power button remains on with no picture or sound turn tv off real quick and then back on and works for 2 mins then turns off again what could be...


Here's the basic troubleshooting:

  1. Make sure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.
  2. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV.
  3. Press the SYSTEM RESET button and hold for 10 seconds. Proceed if the problem still exist.
  4. Press and hold POWER and MENU buttons simultaneously for 20 seconds. Proceed if the problem still exist.
  5. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours.
  6. If it still shuts down, press the DEVICE and MENU buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold it for 5 seconds to activate the Error Code Operational Check. The status LED indicator will then flash denoting a two digit code.
  7. Count the number of flashes then pauses for about a half second then flashes again. The first number of flashes indicates the first digit of the error code and the second number of flashes indicates the second digit of the code. For example, if the error code is "35", the LED will flash 3 times, pauses, then flashes 5 times. The error code is repeated a total of 5 times.
Please let me know the code you got and I'll tell where the problem lies and how to fix it.

Tv says airflow restriction tv will turn off. there is no airlfow restriction


I did not find a reference to airflow restriction in the service manual.
I don't know if this will help, but here are the error codes:

The TV must be in “Shut Down” and not manually switched Off, to perform the Error Code Operational
Check. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to “12” No Error.
Press the front panel “DEVICE” and “MENU” buttons at the same time, and hold for 5 seconds to
activate the Error Code Operational Check. The LED will then flash denoting a two digit Code.
Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.
• The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
Example: If the Error Code is “32”, the LED will flash three times, pause, and then flash two times.
• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
4. Error Codes
The Error Code designations are listed below:
Error Code Probable Cause
12 No error detected
22 Recovery from momentary Reset
32 Lamp Cover open
33 Air Filter Cover open
34 Lamp abnormality
35 Chassis Fan failure
36 Exhaust (Back Cover) or Lamp Ballast Fan failure
37 Engine (DMD or Lamp) Fan failure
38 Excess Lamp Temperature
39 Excess DMD Temperature
41 Short Detected
44 DVI Cable (between Chassis and Engine) disconnected

Error Code 5 flashes when unit shuts down


Good Day;
It sounds like the TV may have a shorted CRT, picture tube, but let's trouble shoot:
1. Unplug TV from wall.
2. Remove speaker grill, two on bottom, the screws are covered with plastic caps, right and left side on bottom next to floor.
3. Remove inner panel.
4. The blue tube is the one the right side, remove socket, with phillips driver, make sure it's not touching anything.
5. Plug and turn TV back on, if picture appears with no blue it's the tube.
6. If still shuts down, bad blue CRT driver IC.
CAUTION: Call a factory authorized service dealer to give you an estimate, if this sounds too hard.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.

Tv keeps turning off?


cutta, you will most often hear a click on boot then the fans start up and lamp will then fire. The picture will start to show up....at what point does it shut off? and do you hear a click when the tv is turning off? Is it the complete tv shutting down, fans and everything that turns off? Do you see any lights on the the front panel "POWER", "STATUS" or "LAMP", what are they doing? If you see a Power, Status or Lamp light after it shuts off the below are what they mean if there is an issue. POWER - STATUS - LAMP - CONDITION/ISSUE: Off - Yellow - Off - Temp. high/dirty filter/excess room temp Off - Off - Yellow - 4000 hrs. Lamp usage warning Off - Off - Blink Yellow - Lamp Cover open Off - Blink Yellow - Off - Air Filter Cover open Off - Off - Red - Lamp failure (failed to turn On or broken) Off - Blink Red - Off - Fan Has Stopped Off - Red - Off - Circuit failure (short) or DVI cable disconnected If you want to check for the last "Error Code", after you first turn the TV on, by pressing the front panel ?DEVICE? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time and holding them for 5 seconds, it activates the Error Code Mode. The ?Power LED Light? blinks/flashes (1/2 sec delay) and then flashes again denoting a two digit Error Code indicating no problem or an error has occured since the last Initalization. i.e. "Power light" blinks 3 times (1/2 second delay) and then blinks 4 times then 1 sec delay and repeats a few times. This would mean "Error 34 - Lamp abnormality". See below for error codes..... Error Code - Description or issue 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 & Engine disconnected. Sorry for the long answer but it was an open ended question.
