Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Problem with power button on TV

When I turn on our TV the picture will stay on for 5 minutes (each time get shorter) then picture goes out. Power light is still on. The remote or manual on/off button will not turn off the TV. We have to unplug the tv from the power source to get the power button off. When we plug it back in it does the same thing. Is this something we would be able to have repaired or would it be more cost effective to purchase a new tv?

Re: problem with power button on TV

This sounds like a lamp cooling problem - maybe the lamp is faulty, but more likely the fan may have failed - this should be cheap and easy to have fixed. Possibly the problem is with damage to the main circuit board, which would be more expensive to repair but should never come to more than about 40% of the cost of a new one. here is the link to the manual there may be something in it you can spot yourself that sheds more light on the problem. I would always recommend getting a set like this repaired - it is a good set and up to date. Hope this helps :)

Its most likely an intermittent lamp. The lamp door is located behind the front panel. The front panel can be removed after loosening the two thumb wheels located on either end of the TV in the rear. Observe the light coming from the area around the lamp door. If you see that the light is going out, its the lamp. You can also access the self-diagnosis menu by using the remote control. Start with the TV off. Push the "mute", then the number 5 button, and then the volume down button followed by the power button. When the picture appears, the menu will been visable. If there is a failure with the lamp, or a fan, or many other areas in the TV there will be a number value to the right of the parameter that indicates the number of times the error has occurred.

TV screen goes blank but power stays on

Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

TV picture goes out

The tv is shutting down because of a power problem. It could be the power transformer or a color gun overheating. Expect at least a couple of hundred dollars to fix it. Some shops will do house calls for around $65 and can diagnose the problem and give you an estimate. Usually they can just remove the board, take it to the shop and repair it, then reinstall it.
