That's second hand.
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 months ago.

Is there just one LED on the front?

or 3 LED's, like:

-POWER

-STATUS

-LAMP

Which of the 3 LED's on the front turns red?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
There are three. Lamp, status, timer.
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 months ago.

Which one of those turns red after the tv shuts off?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Lamp
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 months ago.

The lamp needs to be replaced. You can buy the lamp for $100 and install it yourself. Do NOT get a cheap lamp from amazon or ebay. The best place is dlplampsource.com and lamp instructions are found at mitsubishi-tv.com

Replace the lamp and you will be all set. Before you go please take a moment to submit at least a 3 star rating at the top of this page. Then if you still need help you can reply back and I will be happy to assist you further.

Thanks
Mike
