The lamp needs to be replaced. It's on the back and easy to do. I replaced mine about 3 months ago and it was about $182.00. Hope this works, I know it's hard to fork out that kind of money at this time but once you do the TV will be as good as new. Take care

Air flow is blocked

In the 65" TVS there are 4 or more fans One of these is not functioning Probably the one over the power supply itself This will cause it to heat very quickly and shut down in a matter of about 20 seconds.

only way to find out which fan is not working isw to remove the back.

Air flow problem

Pull Lamp Out and see if when you try to turn it on if the Ballast Board has a spark/arking noise coming from it? If So Replace the Lamp.

Message that TV is powering down, check air flow for obstruction

Mitsubishi has had some problems with these sets with the lamp cartridge(google the model number and look for how to replace lamp instructions) On some of the lamp cartridges they covered several openings with a fine screen like material---one is narrow and completely blocks up with dust---this will trigger the air flow message--if you get the lamp out and this screen is blocked, carefully clean the dirt off with a brush---if you don't get it soon enough it will kill the lamp----the replacement lamps for these sets use a bigger mesh that does not block with dirt---it blocks because there is a fan the pulls air and dirt into the set to cool the lamp during operation.

most rear projectors will turn themselves off whenever the lamp is dead. what we call protective mode. in this case the yellow light may be for the lamp. otherwise check if all the fan are working properly.
But MAKE SURE you let sufficient time for the tv to cool off before unplugging the main.

hope this helps

Hello!! It might be either that the tv is overheating because of the lack of air, or it may also be your ballast.
First of all I recommend you clean the fans, so the air flow won't be blocked, don't use something that mioght damage some of the boards that are inside, you can buy one of those air cans to clean computers, if that does not work, I recommend you listen closely and notice if there's a clicking sound, if so it might be the ballast.

Airflow blocked tv will shut down after a few seconds

Good Day;

If you have a WD-52525 Model TV and the the screen displays "air flow problem" change the sensor. There's not a positive way to check device, just replace it, trust me. IF your TV is a different Model MIT'S has a recall on those certain Models. REPLACE.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
