Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV
This is a DLP tv so the reason it would lose its picture is because it lost video drive to the display mechnism. That would be on the video board. You probably are not going to be able to find it and a tech would just replace the board. If you are not familiar with electronics you probably should get a reputable shop to fix your unit. It should not be more than several hundred dollars. Let me know how you make out.

This, unfortunately, is a fairly common problem with this TV. Fortunately it shouldn't be too expensive.
As you say, it's ok when cooled down, and therein lies your problem.
Check that the fan is working first of all. This fan draws in cool air and the warm air is expelled from the vents (you should be able to feel warm air coming from one of the vents). These vents need to be clear of dust. If they are blocked, you need to clear them with air. Do not use a hoover as they can build up static and zap your tv components.
These tvs don't like being in cabinets by the way, as they can't get enough cool air and often **** in the warm air they've just expelled.
If none of this helps, then it's likely you have a defective thermistor, which is reasonably easy to replace and shouldn't cost too much; certainly cheaper that a new tv set!

I have a question for you;
Before it shuts down, does it display any messages?
