    Air flow problem and gets to hot and shuts off after turning the TV on. Reset many times but does not help. I put a fan on the back of the TV and somtimes it cools down and will then turn on. My son has the same model and has had many problems also. The TVsare not even paid for.

We were having the same air flow problem, this past week, just about 5 mins ago, my husband took out the lamp cartridge and blew the dust off, so far our TV is working just fine, try it and I hope this work, we have already purchased one new lamp since purchasing the WD65731 65 inch model in Jan of 2007, surely we will not have to buy a new lamp every 13 months!

There is a sensor near the lamp that is bad. It looks like a small rectangle, which two wires dead end into. This sensor is faulty, and will cause this message to appear (It is highly unlikely that it is really getting too hot. You can do the other fix, and it MIGHT work). Call a technician to replace the sensor (its most probably a factory recall), and in the meantime, find the inlet on the tv (it should be on the side), and place a small fan there while waiting for a technician.

There is a known problem with the sensor as mentioned above. however, mine went a step further and they had to replace the "light box". Sort of like the brain that controls every thing. glad I had extended warranty other wise it wuld have cost over half the cost of the TV

Air flow vent is blocked, tv keeps shutting down, mitsubishi ws-55615, how to fix ?


Mitsubishi's product line includes a wide array of LCD, Flat Panel, and DLP televisions to suit your home entertainment needs. The electronics division has the distinction of inventing the first rear-projection television and selling the very first HDTV in America. Their 400,000 square foot manufacturing facility, located in Irvine, CA, boasts the ability to produce more than 1,000 projection TV's in one day. The company's oft-stated goal of unmatched excellence is driven by their mantra: "Technically, anything is possible." In June, 2008, Mitsubishi introduced a new premium flat panel TV with an integrated 16-speaker sound projector.
Warranty Information
There is in-home service on all big screen models, which have warranties of 30 days for screens and one year for parts and labor. The LCD televisions have a one year warranty on parts and one year on labor with carry-in service. For plasma sets, in-home service is available on all models. There is a one year warranty on parts and one year on labor. The faulty thermal sensor, mentioned in the commmon repairs section, is now covered by an extended 2 year warranty, as is the problem related to the optical engine.
Common Repairs
For the following models: WD-52631, WD-57731, WD-65731, WD-Y57, WD-Y65, WD-57732, WD-65732, WD-57831, WD-65831, the most common repair problem stems from television shutting off almost immediately after it has been turned on accompanied by the message, "TV will shut down in a few seconds. Please check if the air flow is blocked." According to the Mitsubishi website, this issue is caused by a loose connection as a result of a faulty thermal sensor. For models: WD-73727, WD-73827, WD-73927, WD-73732, WD-7383, the most encountered repair problem has been in relation to the optical engine. Another common situation consumers have encountered is failure of the TV to turn on along with unceasing flashing of the green power light. The solution for this problem, caused by the DM board, will vary by repairman. Consumers have also encountered issues with moving vertical or horizontal lines appearing on the screen which can either be due to problems with the capacitor, light engine, or formatter board.

The lamp needs to be replaced. It's on the back and easy to do. I replaced mine about 3 months ago and it was about $182.00. Hope this works, I know it's hard to fork out that kind of money at this time but once you do the TV will be as good as new. Take care

most rear projectors will turn themselves off whenever the lamp is dead. what we call protective mode. in this case the yellow light may be for the lamp. otherwise check if all the fan are working properly.
