Shuts down automatically with red light

Hi,

After using our Mitsubishi DLP TV for about 2.5 years, this morning suddenly it shuts down. If I turn it ON, first green light appears, then it flashes for a while, after that it shuts down and a red light appears.

What could be the reason? Do I need to change any light inside? Unfortunately my guarantee from Mitsubishi is over. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for your help.

    I pressed menu (as there is no button called 'device) from front panel for 8 secs and then the red light goes away. It doesn't give any two digit code. After that if i try to turn on the tv, it is showing the same green light and followed by a red light.

    Any more suggestion?

    my unit is about the same age and the exact same issues happened this evening. i tried holding the buttons for 8 seconds and no code was displayed. have you confirmed it is only a lamp? i did purchase the extended warranty, but of course i cannot locate the paperwork. please comment how you fixed your unit (do it yourself or take it to a tv repair) thank you!

    I HAVE BEEN HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE RED LIGHT INDICATOR FLASHING A CONSTANT RED. I TOOK OFF THE PANEL AND CHECKED THE LAMP WHICH WAS FUNCTIONAL. I LET THE TV REST AND POWRED IT BACK ON AND STILL THE RED LIGHT INDICATOR STILL SHOWS. I REPLACED THE BULB ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND THE TV JUST RECENTLY STARTING HAVING THE RED LIGHT INDICATOR ON FOR SERVICE. IM SO FRUSTRATED WITH MITSUBISHI BECAUSE THIS IS THE SECOND TV I HAD TO REPLACE DUE TO MALFUNCTIONS.

I have a mitsubishi wd-52327. Power light come on then a loud vibrating sound for a few seconds then after a pause it does it one more time then red light. I did the input and menu button for 8 seconds and got a code of 12 (no error detected check power supply). In my research I found a site called www.nodevice.com and downloaded a misubishi service manual for 9.95 euro.it has the error codes. for the person looking for error code of 44, it says (dvi cable between fmt and engine disconnected) Any suggestions appreciated. Lamp has been changed.

Push device and Menu in on the front panel together and hold for 8 seconds and see if the led blinks a two digit code. As it may be the lamp or quite possibly the Power PWB capacitors if it blink a 3 4 code.

    Some models have a input button instead of device,If yours has input. Press input and menu both in together for 8 seconds.

    As long as a error code didnt come up, youre most likely only need a new lamp.

Mitsubishi 73" DLP powers on, through welcome


If you are getting at turn on source and back ground is all blue the set will shut down rather quickly;

I have a suggestion, if it works fine, and if not it will not hurt anything.

with original Mitsubishi remote turn set on and then Menu, 1,2,3, enter.

This is the soft reset that most of these sets have (cannot be sure since Model number above is correct?)

The reset button on the front (if it has it) just shuts the set down and reboots the DM unit inside.

Most of these sets when it is pressed the green light will blink for about 70 seconds and go out; that is the DM unit rebooting and the soft restart is something else.

Let me know what you find before you rate this information.

Hi, have you replaced the lamp after 2-3 yrs of usage? The lamps used by mitsubishi tend to last around 4000 hrs 1-3 yrs.It is common for the green light to light up.Other common failures are the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.Also check if its not overheatin, dust out the fans.Heres where u can get the lamp or ballast http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=wd-52631

DLP TV turning on and off automatically - Mitsubishi WD-52327


1. Unit powers on and works properly for a while then shuts off with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 3. At power on the lamp turns on and off three times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the Light Engine part # 939P977010 4. Check for 12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part # 283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977010 5. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 6. Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if low or missing check C9A37 and C9A38 both 3300 UFD 10 V part # 181P732040 on the Power PCB part # 930B929001
