Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Color problem with DLP TV

I own a Mitsubishi DLP 52525. I recently turned it on and the color and tint appear to be severely distorted. I've tried adjusting color/tint setting of improvement-just makes it worse. I thought initially that it might be the colorwheel. However, I tried the PIP/POP function and am able to display the proper color on the alternate tuner used for PIP. Incidently, I can PIP from same device, so I'm able to watch a bad image on the primary tuner, and the correct image on the alternate tuner. I've tried all setting adjustments (at least I think I have) and even tried to restore factory defaults...No change. Also tried different devices...still no change-primary tuner has poor color and tint.

The WS is a picture tube type rear projection first produced as a 2003 model year set.

A few questions and then a offer if needed.

Did this happen suddenly or after a power loss?

By reboot do you mean the recessed reset button on the front of the set?

I will presume if you turn color off completely the screen is some other color than black and white?

the offer: have you tried the Option menu this set has hidden, I can explain if needed.

Mitsubishi 1080p 73'' DLP HDTV - Color distortion

This would be the little sensor on the light wheel. Its cheap, you can get them online for around $2. You will need to take the light engine out and remove the color wheel cover and remove the color wheel and then remove the sensor. You will have to desolder the sensor and remove it to replace with the new one.
What is happening is the sensor is overheating and not tracking the color wheel properly there for the colors get messed up. Once you replace the sensor the tv should work like normal. The part is
(Sharp GP2S40 Photointerrupter). It is very difficult to find because they are not made anymore. Most major online part stores do not carry them but I found a lot of them at Wright Hobbies. Good luck.
