OK hang on I'll go check............
No, no pattern. Just a steady blinking. Won't stop untill I unplug it. The lamp light flashed on very briefly too but the went out. The lamp is only 2 months old.
Yes, I bought it through Mitsubishi and that's about what it cost. Should I try to take out the lamp and reseat it???
OK, gimme about 5 or 10 minutes.......
Took the lamp out and it looks OK not burnt or anything, no spots. When I put it back in and plugged it in the green light flashes and now the lamp light starts blinking and the green light goes out.
Lamp light is blinking steady, no pattern. Red status light is no longer on.
Fans are not starting up.
OK Hang on.........
Yeah, I didn't put the plastic lamp cover back on because I thought I might have to take the lamp out again and I didn't think a little plastic cover would matter. I guess it did.. I put the cover back on and now it's doing the same as before. The green light blinks rapidly for about 20 seconds then shuts off. If I press the power button then to turn it on the green light comes on steady, the fans start up, the TV comes on but immediatly shuts down and the red status light blinks steady.
Where can I get the fans myself???
I can't locate the Fans in this set for sale anywhere- that's what I was doing previously. One of the fans, you absolutely cannot even access unless you remove the entire Light Engine which is a pretty big deal.
The source I usually use for replacement parts is showing out of stock on all three fans:
What you can also do, is access, remove and thoroughly, clean EACH fan in the set, then add a couple of drops of WD-40 to the spindle of each fan to essentially refurbish them, assuming that they are not physically broken.
To see more about where the fans are, the Service manual can give you some ideas, but does not show an exploded view, or step by step how to access the fans. The Service manual for your set is at the link below:

Thanks for your help Aric. You earned your 28 dollars and an excellant rating.
I did what you said and cleaned the fans and the TV is working GREAT now. Thanks again.
