Question about Mitsubishi WD-62525 62" Rear Projection HDTV
Had a red LED lamp light so i replaced the lamp. Still had the red light so I returned lamp and tried another, Lamp status light still red. I then took it to get diagnosed at a repair center and they said it was the lamp ballast. Is this something I could replace at home?, could I replace this and the TV still not work?, or shoyuld I just let the TV go and stay away from Mitsubishi's?
I replaced my own the part cost $109,it was somewhat time consuming since taking the back panel off was a learn as I went.However I still didn't get the red LED to go off.....TV still would not power up in it's normal fashion.Previously I had 2 lamps burn out,and you definetly could tell they burned out.Since then I have changed the power supply feeding($130) the ballast circuit and I still haven't got the TV to come on without defaulting to the red LED,and taking the chasis apart to do this was a real pain.I have posted a question about my problem recently.Still waiting for a solution.Mitsubishi won't sell a customer any parts........they want you to go to atechnician that works on their product.GOOD LUCK!

There is a good chance that it is not the ballast.
you would need to measure the voltage on the heavy wires going to the ballast. to see if there is approx 300vdc on them if not or if it is low then the problem is in the chassis or the engine.
