I don't remember which fan is the number two fan but usually there is a fan on the lamp and on the DMD. So to find out just take the lamp door cover off and you should hold down the switch so the TV will run and see if the DMD fan is turning on or not. If it is turning on then check the lamp fan by sliding out the light engine. For either lamp check to make sure there isn't anything preventing the fan from moving. Like wires being pushed into the fan or something like that. If there is nothing there then while you are turning on the TV try to spin the fan to see if maybe you hit a dead spot on the fan motor. If that works then power on and off the unit to see if it starts working fine again. If it doesn't keep working then replace the fan. If the fan doesn't start spinning at all then follow the wires for it to make sure they didn't get pulled out of probably the DMD board if it is a Samsung. Then make sure they are seated properly, if no change then check voltage and make sure it is getting voltage. If there is voltage then replace the fan. If no voltage then replace the DMD (if it is a Samsung).

It could be dust and or lint in the tv. The bulb has a fan to cool it and if it is plugged with lint can cause the bulb to overheat and fail. Lint or dust that gets on the bulb can also cause premature failure. Remove bulb and lean fan and intake screen thoroughly and check to make sure fan is operating. Then install new bulb. Hope this helps.

Screen says check fan 1 2 3


Hi,Sounds like you just need to clean the fans,you can do this with an air pressure can.One of them is where the lamp is a second one will be where the optical block is exactly where the Dmd board is.The third location could be any where.Also it seems there's a cable loose or bad connection ,maybe when you replaced the color wheel you unplugged a cable.Good luck and God bless you!

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!


Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

I have the same problem. This is the second bulb in 6 months. The first one lasted 13 months. The bulb explodes inside and makes a loud snap noise, like an arc. The repair guy said it was the ballast along with the bulb. Good luck

I have a Mitsubishi DLP 1080p TV with air flow problems


Hello ags98,

First I would suggest that you re-seat the bulb and then check the cooling fan, and air flow path. In addition to checking the fan make sure all air flow ingress and egress vent are unobstructed.

I hope this helps

Thank you,
