Hello... Your TV has a lamp that has probably gone bad. The lamp is accessible from the back of the TV, located towards the right side. There is a square-ish piece of plastic with one screw on the left side. Unplug the TV, open the cover and there are two silver screws on the left, top and bottom. Loosen the screws, and then grab the handle and pull out the lamp. It may be obviously bad, but if you're not sure, take it to a service center to get their opinion. Be careful buying a lamp online, some will not last long and some may not work at all. Mitsubishi TVs need the correct lamp to work properly. I hope this helps.
Red light indicates the lamp has failed to light. You may just need to buy a new lamp. If that does not help then the capacitors on PWB-Power need to be replaced or the lamp ballast itself has gone bad.

if is not under warranty then you should buy a new tv. i had 3 lamps, 1 light engine, and they are currently rebuilding the chasis for the second time. i got my tv in 12/04 and got the 5 yearextended warranty THANK GOD! they are spending more time/money to keep repairing this pos than its worth. they could have gotten me a new model and saved everone the hassle. i would not recommend repairing it.
