Mitsubishi wd52525 problems

i have thought about this since you first posted it. if the demo is good then the light engine is ok. it sounds like a problem in the chassis. probably on the DM and the terminal board. to repair the chassis would cost about $250.00 plus shipping.

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?

If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.

Dark over night

Does the TV have a light sensor? If so, turn it off.
The light sensor limits the backlights intensity at night or when it's dark in your room in order for better vieweing convenience.

If you are in a dark environment, it really pains your eyes when the view is too bright. Same works the other way around. If it's day, and light in your room. The light sensor will dimm the backlight for it isn't needed.

Let me know if this solved your question.

Apex 43 inch tv

Convergence is when you aim all three of the projectors, your tv has three, so that the images they produce all line up with each other. This usually doesn't generate a white line across the middle of the screen though, there is a button on the front panel of your set that automatically converges the three projectors, you can try using that.

Apex rear model?

I would say it's a adjustment you will need, is the convergence aligment ok, to adjust this you will need to find the adjusment block in the front, this is a black unit about 4" x4" and has lot's of wires that comes in.
On this block there will writing on it focus, and screen, well your half way there.
Adjust the green screen control downard to see if it adjuses your green problem if it does, here how you adjust the rest.
First go to your menue, turn the colours off. yes off.
next put contrast to max.
next turn your brighness to 40%
Nest ajust the screen control until you no longer see any trace line of the colour you or seing so that at the end product you het the best black and white picture you can. This will give you the end resolt for best picture posible.
Adjust the other colour after, to see if you or close to the corect adjustment go back to the menu and turn contrast down you shouldn't see any trace line.
Another problem people don't understand this unit have to be clear once's every 2 years.
This I won't explain it's a very long process if done right . Rear projectors has to be clear because with time you will notice the picture looks like you have catarack. or white filtering of the picture. This is when you know it need's cleaning, I do it all the time when I go to customer home, yes I do house call's. I think I'm the last one out there, most shop what's the tv in the shop mostly to be able to control the price there about to hit you with and if the customer doesn't pay there just sale it, they have the control and not you.

I hope this help, keep in mind it's very expensive to have tv repairs, but you have to pay, this what keep's tech going without them, well you can just imagine.
