Mitsubishi WD 62327

Trying to fix my son's Mitsubishi WD 62327 TV. Lamp burned out (shattered glass in bulb), and he bought and installed a replacement. New bulb doesn't light up and TV has no sound. When the power button is pushed the "Timer" light comes on as a steady green for approx 80 seconds, it then goes out and a blinking green "Lamp" light comes on for approx 60 sec; it goes out and a steady red "Lamp" light comes on and stays on. I measured the voltages on the power supply board at connector PA and got 5V at pins 1 & 2, and 10.7V (not 12V) at pin 4. All indicators are that the new lamp is bad, but the supplier says this is highly unlikely. Is there anyway to verify if the lamp is good or not? If I know for sure that the lamp is O.K., it would give me alot more incentive to try to find the circuit problem. Any help would be appreciated. Also, I did the tv built in trouble code action by simultaneously pressing the menu and input buttons and got a 34 code which is translated as "lamp abnormality".

Yes this is the signal for a bad lamp. Other things can cause this. 1. Look at the new lamp. make sure it still looks good. not broken with little glass pieaces in it. 2. When you turn on the tv, put your ear to the lower back part of the tv near the middle. Listen for the start up of the color wheel (a low high pitch sound only at the start up of the motor). If this is good you will here a ticking sound only if the lamp dose not light.

Now with all this info. If the lamp lights (as seen from the back of the set) and goes out after a few seconds and you did not here the color wheel spin up, the color wheel is bad.

If you here the color wheel spin up and no ticking sound, the Ballast is bad.

The ballast part no. 939P978010

The color wheel is not avialable from Mits. You will have to replaced the light engine. It cost to much. Just buy a new tv.

My best gess is the Ballast.

We replaced the lamp in a tv mitsubishi wd-62327 now there is a orange flashing indicator light....now what?


if the set is now working,its just a matter of resetting the lamp-hour counter in the on-screen menus.be sure to clean any filters associated with the fan which cools the bulb,or your new lamp wont last long!

Where is the lamp located in a 62" mitsubushi tv dlp wd-62327? am trying to install the lamp and can't find it.


Some of their models require taking off the lower front panel. Some are in the back to the lower right corner. There is a cover about 6x6 that is removed usually with two screws and the same for the front except it will be the lower left after the cover is off.

Replaced Bulb and sill have red lamp light


no you should not feel any click,the lamp plug
slides into the ballast plug in the groves.do not
force it,you could have the plug upside down or
you need to visually see if the ballast plug is
damaged.you may need to replace the ballast if you still are getting a red lamp error on the
front of the tv.

The lamp is in the FRONT of the television set. Just remove the bottom front, no screws, and you'll clearly see directions on how to install the new lamp.
Simple, just a few screws.

TV problem - Mitsubishi wd-62327 62


If the lamp is bad, you will hear a buzz noise as it tries to fire up the lamp. If you let it try enough it will spit out the error message. You can pop the speaker grille off and gain access to the lamp door. Use a philips screwdriver to get in. The lamp will be shattered or damaged looking if bad. If you have a good lamp, you may have 2 bad capacitors on the power board (3300uf). They will be bulged on the top and not flat. It is difficult to disassemble this tv.

WD-62327 Lamp


OSRAM VS. PHILLIPS
This is about buying replacement bulbs for the WD62327 TVs.I dont know about the other models but I purchased a PHILLIPS replacement bulb and it worked for about a week and then those dumb flashing lights and no TV. I did some research and others were saying that you had to replace some condensers. Shop would do it for 600 dollars..Well i sent the bulb back and bought an OSRAM replaement bulb. The TV is now working perfect.
