Question about Mitsubishi WD-62827 62" Television

3 Answers

TV suddenly shuts off and lamp light comes on, but lamp is OK

A few days ago I tried to turn wd-62827 set on and it acted like it would turn on, but instead it went dead and the red lamp light came on. Assuming it was the lamp (after two years of use) I ordered a new lamp and installed it. I of course happened to unplug the main power to replace the lamp and when I had it back together it started up just fine. The next day I was watching it and it shutoff again and the red lamp light came back on and the tv would not turn back on. On a hunch I unplugged the unit and plugged it back in and waited for the green light to stop flashing. I turned it on and it works great. Anyone know what is causing this? Thanks!

    sskellen - so the technician came back out and replaced the balast, but it did not fix the problem. However, when he continued to trouble shoot he pulled out the main power board and discovered an errant wire on the board that had not been trimmed down during production and had bent over and shorted the output to the balast. He bent the wire up, trimmed it and the TV works reliably again! I hope this helps some of you as I can imagine this QA/QC problem being more wide spread.

There are 6 capacitors in the power supply that fail on this tv. Two are 3300@16v, and four are 1000@16v. They should be replaced with hi temp capacitors.

I did reset the lamp timer, but same problem. It will usually come back on for a period of a few hours or days and then shutoff. Thanks.

TV shuts itself off after a couple minutes of being on.


One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

Mitsubishi DLP overheating


Mitsubishi has problems with the thermal sensor going bad. They extended the warranty for several sets. The sensor is right by the lamp. Call mitsubishi and insist they do something for you. If you keep playing your set, the bulb could also be at risk. I would think your set is covered being a 62" set. Good-luck and be sure to act ASAP.
