Lamp indicator light turned red - replaced lamp and light turned red again. Got another lamp thinking maybe the new lamp was a defect. However, after receiving yet another lamp I am still getting the lamp indicator light red. No picture, sound, nothing. T.V. starts up and then within 10-15 seconds the lamp indicator light turns red again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a new lamp. The red light means the lamp failed to turn on.
You can find cheap ones on ebay for about $40. If you go to best buy they will charge an arm and a leg. You can change the lamp yourself and it will take less than 15 mins to do. The only tools youll need are a phillips screw driver and maybe a flat head.
you have a digitdl light processing (dlp) television, which uses a high-pressure mercury-vapor lamp. depending on the hours of usage,the lamp will last about 1-2 years. the red lamp most likely indicates the end of lamp life. the lamp will need to be replaced. the owners manual will have instructions on how to replace the lamp. you can order a lamp on line. i perfer a brand name lamp. follow the instruction carefullt. i found that the television needs to be unpluged for an extended amuont of time to completely reset the timers, at least an hour. i have an older model wd62525.
It may be. I have replaced the lamp in my sony 3 times. Look for dlp lamps online and enter in your tv model. There are instructions online on how to change it yourself. They also show you in your manual. The power light should blink red indicating bulb failure. Read your manual. Hope that helps
Mitsubishi has problems with the thermal sensor going bad. They extended the warranty for several sets. The sensor is right by the lamp. Call mitsubishi and insist they do something for you. If you keep playing your set, the bulb could also be at risk. I would think your set is covered being a 62" set. Good-luck and be sure to act ASAP.
We're under a service plan and had the guy out today. Same symptoms. He replaced the lamp and it didn't work and then called Mitsubishi. They said it is probably a very common capacitor problem on the power supply board. If you open the back and take a look you are likely to see bulging caps. Parts C9A37 and C9A38. The caps are cheap if you can find them, but the parts are really hard to find right now so Best Buy is actually replacing these for people under service plans rather than fixing them. You probably ignored the "warning signs" like we did and didn't think much of it when the TV said there was something blocking the air flow and the lamp was going to shut off. We now know this is a sign that the caps are getting too hot and need to shut down to cool off... Good luck! BTW, our guy said the repair will run you about $200 if you can't do it yourself.
