Question about Mitsubishi WD62527 62 in. LCD HDTV
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.
