I JUST SPENT $800 TO HAVE THE LIGHT ENGINE REPLACED ON MY 2 YR OLD 52725 DLP. WHEN THE SERVICE MAN BROUGHT THE TV BACK, I BEGAN HEARING A FAN RUNNING WHEN THE TV WAS OFF. NEVER HEARING THAT BEFORE, I CALLED THE SERVICEMAN BACK AND ASKED HIM ABOUT IT. HE SAID IT IS NORMAL. NOT CONVINCED OF HIS ANSWER, I CALLED MITSUBISHI-INDIA TECH SUPPORT AND THE LADY THERE SAID THE SAME THING. DO ANY CURRENT OWNERS OF THIS MODEL CONCURE? IF THIS IS THE CASE, MY SUSPICION IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE LIGHT ENGINE WAS SOMEHOW CAUSED BY THE NON OPERATING FAN. CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS.
First of all, was this an authorized Mits. servicenter? if it was, call Mits. customer svc & complain. they should get someone authorized out there to give u a definite answer at NO CHARGE.
wanna buy an extended warranty?
let us know, thanks, alan

have you checked the lamp? with those models they will power up and if the lamp is bad you can hear audio until the tv shuts off. the lamp is located in the front behind the speaker grill assembly. if the "status" light is blinking then you are having a fan failure if the "lamp" light is on then check the lamp like i listed above.
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.
your husband is correct it is most likely your color wheel very common and it will effect the picture. what will happen soon is your tv will not turn on. The cost is two possiablities. color wheel replacement 225,00 part is 80,00 complete light engine in rear cases cost is 650.00 dollars . I hope this helps

The new bulb that went bad I purchased for less than $130.00 from http://www.Discount-Merchant.com/ . When I called them they immediatly sent me a new bulb free. Their number is 1-619-710-2637. A very good coumpany to do business with. They are also considering selling ballast for dlp TV's for around $200.00. The TV repair place that I have been going to told me that maybe the ballast made the bulb go out and it would cost between $600.00 and 800.00 to have them fix it. My TV is a Mitsubishi WD52725. dodger1
