AFTER the tv shuts off, is the LED on the front solid RED or blinking?

green light is staying on longer now
Expert:  Mike G. replied 11 months ago.

Solid red is indeed lamp failure. You will need to get a new lamp. I strongly suggest you get the new lamp directly from Mitsubishi. There are many low cost versions but all of them are junk.
