Lamp failure indicator

My Mitsubishi wd62530 lamp needed replacing. Two lamps were sent from Mitsubishi. The first was installed by TV repair rep. the TV would come on for 30 seconds and then power down flashing bad lamp indicator. Replaced with the old lamp the TV worked find. Thinking this was just a bad lamp from the factory a second lamp was ordered from Mitsubishi and installed but it had the same problem. Old lamp still worked. I tried switching housing, but the same thing happened. Any clue what could cause this?

I had the same issue when replacing my lamp for the first time. I replace just the bulb with the Phillips replacement bulb. After installing the power down issue started and it would take up to 7 attempts before the TV would stay on with a picture.

Since I never had this problem until i replaced the bulb i decided to send the new bulb back and replace it with a difference one. In my opinion replacement parts are never made to the same standard as original OEM parts. This TV is definitely very temperamental in regard to the bulbs.

When the second replacement bulb arrived I decided to not only replace the bulb I also cleaned the connector plug in the cartridge with a QTip and alcohol. I did the same for the plug receptor in the TV.

When I replaced the bulb i insured the the top of bulb lettering was facing the handle of the cartridge so when you put the cartridge back in the TV the top of the bulb would be facing you.

I also cleaned the entire inside of the TV where the cartridge is inserted including the screws.

Once I did all this the TV turned on the first time and has been working fine for three days now.

I do believe the replacement bulb position is very important as to how it heats up and determines when it needs to cool.

I hope this helps others with the same success i had because I really do not want to replace this TV and start replacing all the parts others have done with little to no success for this issue.

Self Diagnostics procedure.

To activate, press the front panel <ACTIVITY> &<CH

??> buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

The STATUS LED will then flash denoting a two digit

will flash two times, pause, and then flash three

times.

Error Codes, descriiptions and the most likely cause of

the error are listed in Table 2-3.

locked by a V-Chip setting. To unlock, press

and hold <ACTIVITY> on the front panel for

8 seconds.

I was watching tv when the screen suddenly went blank. I tried to power off and back on. The power button blinks a red light and nothing happens


The TV has sound, but no picture.
The lamp is the most common part that causes this symptom. If you have purchased a new lamp already, click on the “Signs of Lamp Failure” link below to check your lamp or contact who you purchased your lamp from for a warranty claim. Look at the indicator lights on the front of the TV and use our chart by clicking the link below to find out what error the TV is displaying to help you. If you have not purchased a new lamp, the lamp is the most common and cheapest repair for this symptom. A defective circuit board can also cause this symptom in which you should contact a certified/trained TV technician.
If your lamp shows any of the signs listed below, there is a high probability your lamp is defective.

Common Signs Of Lamp Failure
- Cloud or haze near the center of the lens.
- The burner (the stem in the center of the lamp) is broken
- The burner has a white bump on it (usually near the bottom)
If the lamp does not have any of the characteristics described above, you check by brand below for LED flashing light codes to keep troubleshooting.

Tv doesnt turn on after replacing lamp??


Just took a look at the manual.
This information is in the troubleshooting section of appendix H in the owners manual.

12. Lamp indicator light is a flashing yellow. Lamp cover door is open or lamp cartridge is not secure. See AppendixH for lamp replacement information.

Appendix H is a bunch of graphics. that you'll need to see to understand. i can't paste it all here.

Projection lamp replacement


the only thing that would burn out another lamp so quickly is if the ballast assy was also bad.

LCD TV NO DISPLAY OR LOST DISPLAY PICTURES


Can you say more about what is going on? What are the little indicator lights by the power button doing. The most common problem with these is lamp failure.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.
