The problem is the sensor next to the lamp. I had the same problem but since i had a warranty they came out and replaced the sensor. That fixed the problem. If you are tech savy than it shouldn't cost more than $15 to fix your tv if not it'll be a lot more.
Other suggestion is to get a vacuum and clean out the junk from the back of the tv. If you can take the back cover off and give it a good cleaning. Also pull out the lamp if id doesn't scare you and clean out the openings with a vacuum

I have a mitsubishi 1080p wd-65731 just replaced lamp , tv comes on works fine for about 30 minutes and then shuts off , cleaned vents good , has good air flow light that says lamp turns red in the fr


Could be the fan. It will cool tv but could also be to much for tv to handle.
You can also try reseating the lamp. It may say ok but be wrong.
I have a Mitsubishi 5500 projection tv . have had the type of issue you have had and I have replaced a lamp as well.had to reseat the lamp three times before it worked without shutting down.
Hope this helps.

Area around TV is clear, nothing is blocking TV or air flow. When we use the TV we frequently get this message: The TV will shut off in one minute. Check to see if air flow is blocked. Happening more...

In the 65" TVS there are 4 or more fans One of these is not functioning Probably the one over the power supply itself This will cause it to heat very quickly and shut down in a matter of about 20 seconds.

I get a message that the air flow/fan is blocked, then the tv shuts down. It's not blocked. It's perfectly clean.


This indicates the TV is overheating. Lamp based TVs usually have two or even three fans. One may be having problems or not turning fast enough.

Call Mitsubishi and they will tell you a authorized service center in your area to come out and fix this issue. They have a recall on the thermal sensors in these sets. They will pay for the repair.

most rear projectors will turn themselves off whenever the lamp is dead. what we call protective mode. in this case the yellow light may be for the lamp. otherwise check if all the fan are working properly.

My mitsibishi tv says its not getting enough ventelation and it shuts down. what can i do


Hello bobtail0915,

This means that your set is not getting the proper amount of air flow in order to remove dissipated heat from the set. I would suggest moving the TV to an area with better air flow. Make sure that nothing obstructs the ventelation slots on the back of the TV set. This should help.

Thank you,

Amber system light is on


had the same issue, we even had a personal fan blowing air behind the tv and the message always comes up right when we turn on the set and the tv turns itself off after about 30 seconds. did some research and it turns out there is no air flow problem just a faulty temperature sensor inside the set. Mitzubishi knew about this since 2006 but didn't really aknowlege it until more recently, they admitted it was a problem with the sensor and are now extending everyone's warenty by 2 extra years so if you got it with a year warenty and you bought it less than 3 years ago, call mitzubishi's 800 number and tell them the temperature sensor needs to be replaced, they'll get you in touch with the nearest service center and a service man will come out and replace the sensor at no charge for parts or labor. hope this helps
