Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV
I READ THE OWNER'S MANUAL AND WITH THE ABOVE STATUS IT SAYS ONLY THAT THE ROOM IS TOO HOT. WELL, THE ROOM IS THE BASEMENT AND IT IS QUIET COOL. WHEN THE TV IS FIRST TURNED ON, IT IMMEDIATELY GOES TO STATUS LIGHT YELLOW (SOLID) AND LAMP LIGHT (FLASHING GREEN) AND THE TV SAYS TO CHECK THE AIR FLOW. COINCIDENTALLY, THE FIRST TIME THIS OCCURED, I HAD JUST MOVE THE TV ABOUT 8 FEET TO A CORNER AND REPLACED THE SATELLITE CABLE THAT RUNS FROM THE WALL TO THE BOX.
Actually, I think I found the problem. I took the light out and cleaned the filter (screen) on the light cartridge. I turned the tv back on and it still gave me the message. As the tv was still on, I tapped on the fan that sends air directly to the light cartridge and the message went away. About 2 days later, I got the message back but went I shook the tv and tapped it on the stand a few times, it worked. I think that particular fan is going out and seems to be a problem with other tv's as well. Any ideas where I can buy a fan? Hope this helps you all out.

Have you checked the air filter located on the side of the unit? Also can you hear the fan start as soon as you plug the set in?
