Customer Question

I just replaced the lamp in my mitsubishi wd-52327 and followed all the instructions. It seems to work for the evening, then it wont turn on the next day showing the red light for the lamp. I have looked every where online and in the manual as to how to reset the lamp timer, and cannot find the answer, maybe this is the problem?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: new lamp, I cleaned filter out, went to settings and put in time and date and tv only worked for the evening and light is red now for lamp

Thanks for the info, is the lamp came with warranty or can you return it to supplier and ask for better quality lamp because problem seems with this lamp as protection circuit inside TV detects that lamp isn't good quality, consume more current than rated that can damage the ballast supply board thus it activates and shut down the TV in protection mode with lamp light to indicates the reason of shut down.

Please return this lamp which is defective and causing the problem and ask the supplier to provide good quality lamp as TV itself is just fine and it only needs good lamp to work. I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
