Susie, try removing the lamp assembly, and blowing out the ventilated area on the lamp assembly housing. i had this issue on my wd-y57 recently and that solved it.(mine was really packed with dust...) i made sure to hold in the system reset button after doing this (located in the controls panel on the front of the tv) but not sure if that is necessary.

    if that does not resolve the issue, you may have a bad thermal sensor (from what i have been reading on this tv, its not uncommon) if this is the case i recommend a qualified technician to repair the issue.

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.

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.

hope this helps
