Mits WD57731 Solid Red Status Light

I have a 2007 Mits DLP model # WD57731, status light is solid red, won't power up, tried pushing reset button, nothing.  Called Mits support, was told lamp burned out, could order from them for $179, checked ebay, ordered, $80, installed, double checked lamp door, but no change, status light solid red, no power, no screen.  Looked on forum to see how to retrieve error messages, but didn't find it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Thank you for the reply and advice. Held Input and Menu together. Status light stayed solid red, however, timer light blinked green - 5 times, 8 times, did 5 sets of 5 and 8.

So what does this mean? Thanks in advance to all.

Signal short, now what? How do I troubleshoot that? Just Joe Homeowner here, be pretty mechanically inclined. Thanks again.

Good question, I'm not

Good question, I'm not familiar with that code my self as it is a newer model. But it sounds as if there may be a short on the signal board. I can forward this to other techs on here and see if they are more familiar with it. At the very least your armed with enough info to ask techs in your area if they are familiar with it and possibly what some of the common faults for that error.

Many thanks Dr. Evil for the replies and forwarding along to other pros. The unit is quite old, purchased in 2007, I believe. Thanks again, happy holidays.

Well I found out what my problem was, took me a little bit of research. The problem was the signal board went bad so I pulled the board out searched for the board number on ebay and got a refurbished board for 50.00 works perfect now.
