RCA DLP Model # M50WH74S Problem: Replaced blown lamp, when plugging it into AC, blue LED lights up right away for 2 or 3 seconds, then shuts off. Waited for a few seconds, and relay will click on and off ( blue LED indicator is not lit even when pressing the power button). But,TV is still dead.

    Can i use a different ballast from another set? I have a Sony with a optic block problem, since all of the connections are the same?

The blue led dies because the power source dies: it detects a big short on one of its outputs and shuts down to protect itself automatically. Since apparently it's a very big short and you just had to replace the bulb then the faulty part is the ballast board (the one that powers the bulb): when the bulb failed it has generated a power surge that fried it.
Replace the ballast and verify the power source board: if you're really unlucky when the ballast got fried it has in turn damaged the power board.

    I seriously doubt it - the voltages are different on the power side. But you have nothing to lose trying it - both tv's are dead anyway. Just make sure the polarity is the same on both connectors.

Mitsubishi DLP overheating


Mitsubishi has problems with the thermal sensor going bad. They extended the warranty for several sets. The sensor is right by the lamp. Call mitsubishi and insist they do something for you. If you keep playing your set, the bulb could also be at risk. I would think your set is covered being a 62" set. Good-luck and be sure to act ASAP.
