Question about Mitsubishi WD-62526 Projection TV
This indicates a bad lamp. your owners manual has instructions for replacing. there will be a lamp door on the back or behind the speaker grille. if the lamp is shattered or bulged/white it is bad. if the lamp looks good, you may have bad capacitors on your power supply.

According to the manual this means the Lamp cover door is open or lamp cartridge is not secure.
See Appendix F for lamp replacement information.

I replaced my own the part cost $109,it was somewhat time consuming since taking the back panel off was a learn as I went.However I still didn't get the red LED to go off.....TV still would not power up in it's normal fashion.Previously I had 2 lamps burn out,and you definetly could tell they burned out.Since then I have changed the power supply feeding($130) the ballast circuit and I still haven't got the TV to come on without defaulting to the red LED,and taking the chasis apart to do this was a real pain.I have posted a question about my problem recently.Still waiting for a solution.Mitsubishi won't sell a customer any parts........they want you to go to atechnician that works on their product.GOOD LUCK!

Having in mind that a generic lamp will give you 4500 to 6500 lamp hours and the Phillips will give you 6000 to 8000 lamp hours and that you TV is 4 years old more likely you are looking to replace you lamp;The lamp itself typically uses AC current and about 15,000 volts to ignite the lamp's mercury vapor gas. The gases inside the lamp react when electricity charges up the mercury gas creating very bright light. The voltage drops to keep the flow of electricity to the lamp.
You can check DM;
If you can hear your TV fan working is NOT you power supply,but if you hear a constant clicking you ballast needs to be replace,
A ballast is an electrical component used with a fluorescent bulb (or mercury vapor lamp or arc lamp) to conduct electricity at each end of the tube. It supplies the initial electricity to the bulb that creates light, and then it regulates the amount of electricity flowing through the bulb so that it emits the right amount of light.
