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

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.

TV will shut down in a few seconds. Please check if the air flow is blocked, and then the TV shuts off.


We had that problem for the first year we had the TV. When looking for a new bulb I had found on the mitsubishi site that there was a problem with the sensor and for a certain amount of time they would fix it. Of course we were beyond that time, but hubby was able to do something where we split the cost. No problem since and haven't vacuumed it once. It has been at least a couple years now.

When startin up it would show a message that air flow was blocked replaced the Thermal Sensor, now the timer lite blinks green then the lamp lite blinks yellow and the green light go out. I hav a new lamp...


Hi,

After the TV has shut down, without pressing reset: press and hold both the Device (Input) and Menu buttons on the front panel until the green light starts flashing. It will flash a two digit code: 3-4, 3-8, 5-7, etc. You may have to let the TV shut down a couple of times (without pressing reset) before it will give the code.

Please post the code to help me determine the section of the TV that has failed and what it will take to repair it. It may be a good idea to repeat the test a few times to make sure the TV is giving the correct code.

Let me know.so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
