Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

WD-52525 screen is jumping all around with wavy horizontal lines etc.

TV purchased on 2/14/2005. Had a bulb replacement in 2007. Everything has worked pretty good except for a couple times tv sound would not come on unless we powered up a second time. Today the screen just became a series of jumping horizontal lines. Can still see the picture but will almost cause a seizure to watch. Tried HMDI (worst picture) S video (Not as bad) and front input with RCA's off a different cable run and box (picture did not have lines but was was blurry with pulsating brightness) Went back to HD box to see how RCA's on front looked and they looked the same, no lines but blurry with the dim/bright screen flash about 3 times per second. Is this the dreaded capacitor issue? I did purchase the Best Buy 4 year extended warranty that is good until 2/14/2009. What do I tell them when I call (can I just get a 1500 plasma), lol?
This is a great forum!

    Should I try to talk Best Buy into just giving me a store credit? Should I request a certain type of rebuild?

    Service tech came today, changed lamp just to be sure. Not the problem, shop tech told him over phone that it was probably the caps. He said hopefully a week or so and they would have the boards rebuilt. Wrote a lengthy letter to Mitsubishi Customer Relations, got a response saying they tried to call buy my line was busy. My phone was only in use once all day and I have call waiting??? I replied and told them to try again.

Good Day;

Keep talking to the factory, it is their product. Best Buy won't replace unless it is deemed not repairable and/or terms of the contract. You purchased the extra warranty because you most have felt that the TV might break down. Well, it did, now use the contract to repair your TV.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Is it possible your having poor air movement around the set. If lamp is frequently blowing it sounds like over heating. Sorry your having troubles. That tv offers a fine picture.

Green horizontal lines on screen no picture


The green CRT's (color picutre tube or color wheel, or ballast) will need to be tested for replacement.
It is quite common with these tv's

You will need an ohmmeter and or voltmeter and test each component for currency and accuracy

Blue Flickering Screen - Which Repair Kit?


yes they provide a free service manual with their kits. the symptom of the blue screen could either be the signal or the FMT as they can both cause those symptoms, My professional guess would be the signal board as the FMT will cause distortion lines across the screen with no picture.

This chassis has bad capacitors on the PWB,FMt, DM and the other boards that need to be replaced. They are all jamicon capacitors 1000uf and larger there are roughly 10 in the set that need to be replaced. Let me know if you need further instructions on this model.

Problems with Mitsubishi WD-52525


When you replace these laps on these TV's they have an internal clock to countdown the lamp usage. After installing the new lamp the TV asked you if you replaced the lamp and you should answer yes. If not its going to ask again. First thing is go through the motion of replacing the lamp take the lamp out etc. then place it back in the set and turn it back on. Follow the on screen instructions and that should reset the lamp timer.
