Question about Projection Televisions

Mitsubishi 65" 1080p DLP Projection HDTV (WD-Y65)

Hello,

I own the above referenced television that I purchased in November of 2006, yesterday it started to shut itself down - showing a message for me to check if air flow is blocked. I check and there was nothing blocking air flow. A yellow light remains on in the front of the set and I cannot get it to stay on. The manual says this happens if the room is too hot, but that is not the case. I pressed the reset button hoping that might do the trick, but it didn't help. I also tried shutting the power completely to the tv overnight, but that did nothing either. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem might be and how it can be fixed?

Thanks,
Cristina

    We own the above referenced television that I purchased in December of 2006, it has recently started to shut itself down - showing a message for me to check if air flow is blocked. We checked and there was nothing blocking air flow. A yellow light remains on in the front of the set and I cannot get it to stay on. The manual says this happens if the room is too hot, but that is not the case. We pressed the reset button hoping that might do the trick, but it didn't help. Any sugestions?

    I am currently having the same problem, I purchased the protection plan and thus far they have replaced the lamp itself 2 times, this has not solved the problem and they are to come out for a third time. I will post a resolution should they actually take the time to figure out the core root of this problem.

Have you cleaned the air filter located on the side of the set? If that doesnt work the thermal sensor will need replacing.

Mitsubishi dlp wd y65 orange light blinks


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

How do I view movies in 3D on the Mitsubishi WD-Y65?


WD-Y65 is NOT a 3D ready TV. You either have to change the TV to see the movie in 3D, or just watch it in 2D in you current TV.

I have the same TV as yours. Current I connect a desktop PC to the TV via DVI port, and I watch Avatar using colorcode 3D(Amber/Blue) with Stereoscopic Player from www.3dtv.at It might be a way for you to enjoy 3D without change the whole thing, but it's an entire different topic.

View 3D on wd-y65


Ur tv does nt support 3D. U can still see 3D if connected to PC. With power DVD 11 u can able to watch anaglyph 3D.
Dnt get confused any standard screen (e.g. CRT (big boxes with curved screen)) can view anglyphic 3D content.

Hdmi 2 wont work on mitsubishi wd-y65


It sounds similiar to a problem we've had with ours, all components would work in hdmi 1, but hdmi 2 would only work intermitently. They ended up replacing the digital board (fortunately we have the extended warrenty, I'm sure it's not cheap). Sorry hope this helps.
