Question about Mitsubishi WD-65731 65" HDTV
Why would it work sometimes
Posted by Anonymous on
I had the same problem. I deducted that if my TV worked fine for an hour or so and then the colors became bad (green, people's faces purple...), it must be a overheating problem. Simple logic, right? So, I picked up a few tools and a small vaccum and went to work.
I went first for the main source of heat: The lamp. Just a few screws, and I removed it. The lamp cage has a fine screen to prevent the dust to cover the lamp. Mine was covered with dust! And the fan behind the lamp was also covered with dust! Bingo!!! That's my problem! I cleaned everything and vaccumed all the air vents on the the back of the TV. I put the lamp back and checked that the fan was working. The TV works like new since!
Before you are out of a TV for days and spend an arm and a leg for a "Technician" to fix it (replacing expensive parts that didn't need to be replaced in the first place), try what I described above first. It's very simple and it takes only 15 minutes.
Since my TV is 2 1/2 years old, I purchased a replacement lamp. I know that one of these days it will burn out. I'll be ready and my TV will be working again in 15 minutes!
Since my problem was solved, I didn't go to the next step. There must be one or two other cooling fans inside the TV, but they must be working...

Testimonial: "YES IT IS A HEAT ISSUE(IF YOU HAVING GREEN SCREEN ISSUES LEAVE THE BACK COVER OFF AND PUT A SMALL FAN BLOWING IN THE LIGHTBULB AREA.PROBLEM SOLVED"
SOURCE: RED LAMP LIGHT!!
Check to make sure your lamp is not blown.
Make sure you installed a Mits original, and not a generic.
Make sure the lamp is seated and secured properly, as slight movement can cause a loss of connection.
Slide your set out to the side and peer into it through the slats. Can you see the lamp fire on?
Your symptom does not indicate that it could be a problem other than the lamp and the installation thereof, however---there is an instance where 2 capacitors will blow on the power supply and cause a red lamp light to show. Furthermore, the light engine itself could be causing the problems.
But, since you just installed the lamp, I would look over your installation.
