Once you replaced the lamp did you reset the hours under the menu? If you do not do that some times the set believes it's in warning mode and prevents a potential implosion of the lamp which creates issues such as the set not turning on, staying on that long, or the lamp light still flashes.

Let me know how that works out for you.

Also, what "old wires" are you referring to?

Lamp changing Instructions for tv model wd-52525


Hello

Unplug your Mitsubishi DLP TV and position the unit so you can easily access the back

Locate and remove the screws for the back panel. Do not remove the entire back of the TV but the lower panel only. The screws will be located in the edge of the panel.

Locate the projection box in the center of your DLP TV. The projection box will have a series of wires coming out of it and be attached to the speaker housing with four screws

Remove the four screws holding the projection box in place and slide the projection box out. It will not come all the way out but will slide out like a drawer. Disconnect the electrical wires at the projection box by pulling the connectors apart. You should now be able to see the projector lens itself.

Facing the back of the DLP TV, the lamp box is on the right side of the projector lens. Pull the lamp box to the right and it will slide away from the projector lens

Grab the top of the lamp box firmly and pull it out of its spring holding clips. Replace it with your new lamp box by pressing the new box into place in the same manner as the old one. Finish the job by reconnecting and installing everything you opened or removed

I push my power switch and nothing happens. the


Unplug the tv for 5 minutes, then try this. Keep holding the VOL+ and CH- buttons down while you plug the tv cord back into the wall ac outlet till you get sound and picture for a second or two. You should be able to turn the tv on and off with the power button now. Next turn the power button off and unplug the tv for a few seconds and then plug it back in and turn the power button back on. Watch the screen and see if the sound and picture comes on, best to check in a dark room to see better, if sound stays on and picture comes on a few seconds and back off you have a bad CCFL backlight lamp in the LCD panel. This tv hads (10) CCFL lamps part # RLMPLA029WJN1 cost $15.93 at www.partstore.com or $19.49 at www.encompassparts.com in it and if one is burned out it will not let the tv picture be powered on till it is replaced. To check and replace the CCFL lamp you will have to unplug the ac cord from the tv back and remove 10 screws holding the back on. With back removed unplug the wire plug on the power button circuit at top left side of the black LCD screen trim, remove 4 screws holding the top of black trim, lay speakers off it, and release trim clips, (4) at top and (2) at bottom with a flat screw driver, and lower the trim to unclip the LED circuit board at bottom left side on the trim. With trim removed, at top of LCD panel remove the (2) PC ribbon wire clips with thumb nail by lifting up on it to release the flat PC ribbon wire. Lay the tv back on a soft pillow with screen up, and look on the LCD panel front for and remove the (10) silver screws 1/2" long with an arrow mark beside them. Do not remove any gold colored screws or any without marks. The LCD panel screen can now be lifted off, lift the backlight plastic thin sheeting and thick sheet off to see the CCFL lamps. Plug the ac cord back into the power supply inverter circuit board and plug the power button plug wire back in its circuit board on the LCD black trim panel, and power the tv on while looking at the CCFL lamps. If the lamp is dim or burned out, take the (2) white plastic covers off the ends of the lamps with a flat screw driver and unclip the lamp to replace it, Check the lamp socket part # QSOCFA003WJZZ by putting a good lamp in it and if it lights up the sockets are good and the bad lamp was the problem. If all the CCFL lamps do not light up, unclip the top lamps and move them to differant sockets to the center and the center lamps to the top, if the lamps do not light up, then it is a bad power supply inverter circuit board the ac cord plugs into, part # RUNTKA448WJQZ , cost about $160.00 for new one or less if you buy a used one on www.ebay.com , replace it and the tv should work ok then.

I can't seeem to find out how to put the new lamp back into the t.v


Hi,
if this is either of the 51" or 56" DLP tv's, it is very simple.
-Make sure tv is UNPLUGGED!
-Open the side compartment on left side of tv as you are facing it from the front.
-Take off the door and you will see the lamp housing.There are 2 screws facing you.Unscrew these and set the screws aside.
-Now pull on the housing a little and it should slide out.You may need to wiggle it a little.
-Set housing down on table or somewhere with good light.Make sure not to touch bulb of either the old lamp or new as oils from fingers can distort picture.
-Now,undo screws on shiny metal piece.There are 2.Take off metal housing piece.
-You now see the back of the bulb.If you look at the lamp from the front,you will notice where the 2 wires are fitted into a bracket with 2 screws.
-Unscrew those screws to loosen the bracket.The replacement lamp should have the exact same bracket.If not you can just undo the wires to the old lamp and connect the same wire harness to the new one.
-once the wire bracket is unscrewed, pull it out of its fitting and then unscrew the 4 screws holding the lamp in.
-Take notice of how the shiny metal clamp-fitting is situated to hold the lamp in place so you can put it back on the right way.
-Once loosened, the bulb should be able to come out and you can put the new one right in it's place. Make sure to keep the top wire connector on the bulb at about 11 o'clock and that a nub on the bulb fits through a spacer on the shiny metal clamp-fitting.
-Now tighten the 4 screws on the clamp-fitting and make sure the wire screw connectors on bulb are tight as well.
-Take the now loose rubber-covered wires and tighten them into the bracket-fitting the way the old ones were,with plugs and lamp facing the same way.
-With everything now tight,put metal housing back on and tighten the 2 screws down.
-Take the whole unit and slowly slide it back into the tv making sure that the plugs slide into their rightful place.This should be easy,but may require a wiggle or two.
-Now screw in the 2 screws you have left into the plastice mounting piece. Re-attach the door and plug the tv in.Wait a few minutes and then turn on tv.
-It should work.If not, unplug tv and check all connections.
TIP:Do not put a cold bulb in and then turn on immediately.I like to let the bulb sit in the tv with it plugged in for a while until the bulb is warmed and ready.
Good Luck! -Chris

Lamp light


Check the lamp switch that is located inside the door. Place the lamp in, and stick a flathead screwdriver in the slot (just make sure it moves) hold it there, and turn on the Tv. If that doesn't work check the new lamp, is it a generic lamp, if so they dont always work. If you still have your old orig lamp, take the old lamp out of that housing, and out the new lamp in the old housing. This should fix the problem.

Picture & Sound blink off 45 seconds, blink back on, repeats


If the lamp is foggy then you really need to replace it. The lamp life is typically 5 to 7 thousand hours. However if your tv gets a lot of dust inside which is pretty normal as most people don't vacuum the dust off from the rear cover on a regular basis then the lamp life will be drastically reduced. I suggest you replace the lamp and make sure the inside of the tv gets vacummed out to remove as much dust as possible. A Sony servicer should be able to check the amount of hours on your lamp. You'd be suprised how soon 5-7 thousand hours happens. If the lamp will not come on after replacing it the lamp driver may be at fault. You haven't said how may times it's blinking. If it's 5 then the lamp driver may be at fault.
