Question about Mitsubishi WD-Y57 57" Projection HDTV
I did my own troubleshooting and found that my lights indicated that my "room temp" was too high..... My TV sits in front of a window that was opened and it being 40 degrees outside, and I still get the error. Although it did work a few times. Now just to locate the "air flow filter" I've told to clean....help me out...please.
A few of these sets did have a issue, the lamp cartridge had some fine metal mesh around a few places where the airflow from the cooling fan contacts it, that mesh if there gets blocked with dust and will give this error as it is really the set detecting the lamp temp is too high.
If you find that, clean the mesh free of dust, careful not to drive the dust inside onto the lamp face itself.
Other than that dust on the fan that cools the lamp can slow the fan just a little and the set will detect this also.

"air flow blocked" means its getting too hot. or it thinks it is. it is quit common on these set that the thermal sensor has malfunction replaceing this sensor is your solution. since this is service bulliteen item at service centers of mitsubidshi products this may be an item covered under warrenty. so i would first check with you local service shop too see before
