Status light flashes red

My Mitsubishi WD-=52628 will not turn on now. There is a green light when push power and then the status lights flashed red continously and the TV does not come on. Work fine a few days ago and now nothing. Can not find my manual.

Help? Any ideas what is the problem and how to address it? i have unplugged it for hours and replugged and still no picutre or sound. I am not sure how to reset it otherwise.

Re: Status light flashes red

Thanks for the information, but must admit i am not techincal or electrical in anyway, so i am not sure how to test "caps" which i presume are capisitors.

Wd-60737 mitsubishi blinking yellow status light ?

Mitsubishi TV troubleshooting
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
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 and Engine disconnected

Error code 13 on mitsubishi wd52628

wait for the light to go out then press power. Then if it doesnt power up hold the menu and the Device/input buttons on the set both in together for 5 seconds the light will blink a series of blinks pause briefly then blink another number of blinks then pause then it will repeat the same two digit blink sequence a few times . Let me know the two digit blink sequence.

Hi, have you replaced the lamp after 2-3 yrs of usage? The lamps used by mitsubishi tend to last around 4000 hrs 1-3 yrs.It is common for the green light to light up.Other common failures are the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.Also check if its not overheatin, dust out the fans.Heres where u can get the lamp or ballast

Status indicator flashes 3 short times, then one long red flash

Once the status light blinks 3 times, this is an indication that there's a problem with the lamp. The lamp may need a replacement.

If you replace the lamp, but get the same problem, check the inverter board.

If you're not sure where the inverter board is, then you may need to contact a pro for your safety.

Good luck and have a good evening!

Flashing status light

Wow I may have just fixed the flashy yellow status light problem. It's so siple yet so difficult. Looking at the front of your T.V. on the left hand side bottm there is a door for a filter. SMACK IT. if the door isn't shut all the way that status light will flash. Mine is turning on now, just have to work on the major problem now :) Hope you have the same simple problem.
