Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
My Mitsubishi 52" DLP recently failed to start up and the red lamp light would then light up. I read the owner's manual and this seems to be a bulb failure although I never received any message that the bulb was nearing the end of its life. I ordered a replacement bulb and plugged it in. The first time I turned on the TV it shut off and the red bulb light turned on again. I waited a while and tried to turn the TV on again. This time the TV started up, but with a very loud and varying in volume whirring (slightly like grinding) noise. The tv then shows multiple colors flashing on the screen. None of the inputs show anything (HDMI or component). I can see the menu but it is distorted and not normal. The whirring noise continues and the TV will maintain this loud whirring noise with flashing colors. With regards to the whirring noise, my TV has always made that noise once turned on, but then very quickly the noise will stop, now it just keeps going. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Sounds like the same problem I had, I bought a new bulb as well, installed it and nothing. I googled that same issue and endedup buying a kit herehttp://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/product_info.php/pName/mitsubishi-v26-dlp-power-pwb-repair-kit/cName/repair-kits/osCsid/145ffde26a9336eaf57c21ff6389def7that came with capacitors that had to be replace, the kit comes with aservice manual and a bag with lots of different capacitors to replaceany out on your board, they are really good at troubleshooting and theyoffer help online. If that is whats wrong with you, you will need asoldering tool, I bought my as a kit at radio shack for $20.00 and plusthe $36.00 for the kit, and a lot of patience, my TV is well andrunning now, it was better than the $600.00 estimate I got from a localrepair shop. Good luck!
