    I have the a similar problem except I am getting sound through my external speakers.

    I have a little more to add to the story.
    I purchased the TV in Feb 2005, in May 2007 I had the same problem (red light with no picture).  After about 6 weeks of trial an error from a service tech, he replaced the Optical Engine and the Lamp Ballast (fortunately I was able to convince Mitsubishi to cover the parts even though it was out of warranty and I pad about $300 for labor).
    Anyway, now we are in July 08 and when I attempted to turn on my TV today the red light came on.  I replaced the lamp (which I had purchased in May 07 as I thought that was the original problem).  But no luck, still no picture.  It appears that lamp is not powering up, I took out the lamp and made sure it was in tight and tried again with no luck.

The hardest part is getting the chassis block out. But if youre mechanically inclined and follow the illustrations and label all the wires you unplug, its not that difficult a job. The soldering isnt very difficult as theyre just capacitors. The chassis is contained inside a metal container and has to be removed as a unit then opened up to get to the PWB PC board.

Did your replace lamp come on the screen or did you lose picture? Just because the LED indicator suggest replace lamp it doesn't mean it needs it. If your pix was dull or loss of brightness then replace it, if not then just reset your lamp timer, check your owners manual for instructions.

yes they provide a free service manual with their kits. the symptom of the blue screen could either be the signal or the FMT as they can both cause those symptoms, My professional guess would be the signal board as the FMT will cause distortion lines across the screen with no picture.
