Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV

Smell from mitsubishi wd-52631

I just replaced the lamp on my mitsubishi rear projection wd-52631. After finishing up and turning on the tv...I noticed a burning smell coming for the set. Is this normal? It really freaked me out for a moment. I turned off the television and went directly to the net for info. I found a couple of different posts about having the same problem. Some said the smell would go away and some said something about an optical engine failure. customer service is of course not open and I have already been waiting 10 plus days for my lamp to come in. Can you help?

Hi...maybe I can help. Go back in and make sure your lamp is connected to the ballast. If it is not all the way in, it will smell like it is burning. Sometime it will even burn out you lamp and or ballast too. Good luck

How can you diagnose a failed lamp in a Mitsubishi DLP WD 52631


Remove the lamp and do a visual inspection.
If this is a DLP you may have a bad color wheel! whistling sound is a sign of color wheel.

Good luck to you

I have a mitsubishi wd-52631 and the red light is solid I just cleaned out the tv and got a new bulb but when I turn the tv on I get about 2 mins of picture and sound before it turns off. Does any one know...


It is possible either did not get all the dirty areas in front, and rear of set cleaned out or even that the ballast for the unit is this problem since it powers the lamp---lamp will come on and then turn off for a number of reasons.

The set does have a self diagnostic feature which usually is:

Mitsubishi TVtroubleshooting
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and getthe regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons togetherfor 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 filtercover 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 cablebetween FMT and Engine disconnected

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 http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=wd-52631
