Those have a problem with the capacitors going bad in power supply. Yes, it's worth having checked out because a GOOD shop will be able to fix the problem and not have to change a board. Very common problem with these sets. Mine did the same thing until I fixed it. Just do your homework when finding a shop. Call around and talk to other people in the area to see who they use etc.. Good luck. Could be a very simple repair. Have it checked.

Unfortunately the first generation DLP's from Mitsubishi are prone to have Capacitor failure through out the chassis. Most likely that is what your set is experiencing. I would start by replaceing the suspect caps on the DM amd The Power boards. You can get the V26 Chassis DM/Power repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which also contains instructions.

The problem is a shaky picture with a static line that's vertical when watching regular TV. This problem does not happen when not watching in HD through our Myth TV (DVR). Closed captioning does not...


Regular TV, you mean by the aerial and internal tuner, if it is like that, then it is a problem with the TV tuner board.
If by regular TV you mean an external TV box, then the TV box is faulty or you have a cable or ferquency problem.

Our Mitsubishi WD 52525 goes to blue screen and shuts off.


It sounds like you TV is overheating and the video is suffering and the lamp is overheating as well. Also, if your TV is over 2-3 years old, the mirrors (behind and below the big front screen) desperately need to be cleaned. Clean all filters and fans as well. (Look on side and behind the unit). Is the TV in a "hot" environment and/or dirty environment? DLP TV's are NOT sealed units. They need to be cleaned every few years to work well to have a good, clear, bright picture.

Picture dimming and an ominous clicking sound


If this set is really only 5 weeks old, place a warranty service request for repair. This should not be happening. Either the ballast is bad or the lamp. In any case, either should be covered under warranty.

Please keep us updated.

Thanks,

Big screen showing double and red ghost color


Go into your service menu and try to adjust the convergence, if it does not adjust, the IC's ( chips) are bad in that circuit. Call a local factory authorized dealer to service your tv. The cost should run around $450.00. Good luck.
