Question about Mitsubishi Televison & Video
Model # WD73733. When I turn the tv on you hear a noise that sounds like an electrical spark trying to ignite, and the fan that cools the lamp coming on. It try's to cycle 3 times before cutting off, and the LAMP light next to the status and power light on front panel stays on. I turned off the lights, and turned power on again, and when it is trying to ignite you can see the light from the lamp flickering when its making that igniting sound through the air vents in the TV on the back side by the lamp. I removed the lamp cartridge and looked at it. There is no obvious blown bulb signs, but I AM NOT A TV REPAIR MAN, but know that if it is indeed the lamp I can change it in 2 mins. I DO HAVE SOUND, and this happen suddenly, NO WARNING. Please help me confirm if you can.

I had the same problem...I took the back panel off the tv and took a small desk fan and mounted it so it would keep the bulb extra cool...IT WORKED! I left it like this for about a week. It shut off only twice after about 4 hours of on time. I then disconected the small white ceramic sensor on the back side of the light. (there is a plug conecting it, just follow the wire to it) It has been about 3 weeks now and I have not had the tv shut off yet. (disclaimer...could start fire from over heating? try at your own risk.) If it works for you buy a new sensor.
