Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Mitsubishi DLP WD 52525 has small green lines on the screen

Hello there. Can someone help with this problem. I just started noticing small green lines on my tv screen. Is this a sign of needing a new lamp or bulb. Ever since we got out directv hd/dvr it started to show the small green lines and now after 3 months the green lines are even more prominent and annoying. Your input is greatly appreciated.

    hello, the lines are horizontal from top to bottom and about an inch or so apart but it doesn't look like it moved across the screen. sometimes the lines are on the right side of the screen and sometimes they are all over the screen and sometimes they don't show at all. very strange. i just ordered a new lamp for it so hopefully that will solve the problem. what do you think?

    I have the same issue. I've had the cable co come out and it is not them. My bulb is coming to end of life and was wondering if you bought a new bulb and it took away the lines?

Do the lines go from top to bottom, and are they about 1 inch apart? or do they move diagonally across the screen?

    sadly, it sounds like the light engine is failing. if you could post a picture it would help a lot

  • Jim Miller Jun 14, 2012

    I've had a few people with this problem come to me. I've found lubricating the light wheel in the light engine, and replacing the bad capacitors in the unit fixed the problem. However, this unit has to be broken down to almost nothing to complete the repair. Very time consuming and make sure you have a large CLEAN (nearly sterile) Working environment in which to do this.

    COLOR WHEEL - not light wheel sorry about that.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WD-52525 52-inch DLP HDTV ywllow warning lamp light

that means your lamp it is getting to the end of its life.
sometimes even if the lamp still good the TV will send you that message because that timer is closed to 5000 hours

What you can do is open the lamp door, closed again and the tv will ask you if you replaced it the lamp, and just say yes and that sign will go away

or just simple replace the lamp. 915P020010

Use a eyeglass cloth or LCD screen cloth. Use NO solvants on it. Just dry cloth. ALSO goto the settings menu and put the tv in HIGH altitude mode. There tv's get too hot and the light engines go out. Green or blue tint. or dots. It also helps the lamp last longer.

hello When the TV has been powered on long enough for the lamp unit to get hot, it may take several minutes for
the picture to appear on-screen. See "IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT HOT LAMP R
When the TV has been powered on long enough for the lamp unit to get hot, it may take several minutes for the picture to appear on-screen
in the following situations:
• When the Quick Restart™ feature is set to OFF and you turn the TV off and then on again within a few minutes.
• If the TV is on when a short-term power failure, power surge, or other similar power failure occurs, such that the TV loses and regains
power within a few minutes.
This is a property of DLP TV lamp technology and is NOT a sign of malfunction.
If this occurs, the green LED on the TV front panel will blink (and the red LED will be lit solid) until the TV is finished restarting the lamp
and the normal picture appears. If BOTH green and red LEDs are blinking at a one-second rate, you will need to turn the TV off and then
on again to restart the lamp.
ESTART" on page 8. if this no good check the lamp in side to see if it's not burn't out good luck

You very well could have problem with the Ballast board that powers Lamp or your Lamp Fan maybe defective and if you need orinagnal hand unit for set Call Encompass Parts Distrubtion or Go to their website type in Model number they will list Parts /Prices for your model.
1-800-638-3328 Mats Electronics also sells handunits .To reset timer
Hold VOL- on front of TV and Menu on hand unit at same time for 5secs
if this does not work try it in reverse Hold Menu down on TV and Vol- on hand unit. Check your Lamp Fan see if it quits running while turning set on,if it starts and stops it is defective, other wise Follow wires that Lamp plugs into it will connect to Ballast board that powers Lamp CK it Problem M/B Ballast Board.

There is a chance the video board is not working how it should. When a video board starts to fail it can start with these green lines and it can also give you a completely green or blue screen. In this case you need to take the board to a shop so they can check if it's either the digital or analog video board. The boards are not that expensive. http://www.discount-merchant.com/?Click=48427

Philips tv powered off and wont turn back on


There is a smt located at 7404 [C-6 Bottom] A common problem, does the tv make a sound like it wants to come on? Location 3239 should be small resistor, 3414 another resistor and a driver transformer at 5402 if it looks burned. See MCM electronics website and see if there is a kit to repair this. Or ask for part #s as per location of problem area mentioned. What you will be doing is changing the timing so all the components will come on at the same time. If this is done correctly you will notice the top of tv screen will flash red, green and blue lines. This will be the new norm each time you turn it on. But it will be OK. This is what the flashing green light is telling you. signed the Green Lantern7!!!!!!!

Screen turns green after 20 minutes of use


static line at top is a problem with the broadcast input. many cable boxes and satellites create this because they dont quite fill the true resolution that the tv is capable of. the green splotches sound like overheating of the lcd lamps. id return it for a new one.

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.
