Most often, I find when servicing these televisions, the lamp has failed but it was due to poor fan circulation. This television has at least 3 if not 4 fans. If you take off the back and find these fans are filled with impacted dust, the fan may be causing the failure. Also check to be certain your door safety switch is making good contact. These tips should ber of assistance but check your fans. A clean inside of a tv is a happy tv!
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.
Chances are the lamp is not bad. Is the lamp door reseated properly? The is an interlock on that door that must be activated in order for the set to turn on. If the unit was woking before the lamp went out this may be the problem
You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance: 1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours 2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris. 3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle
