Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Mitsubishi WD 52525 lamp replaced, no picture, red light

Hello,
I saw that you offered insight to several folks regarding the Mitsubishi WD-52525 and recommended the V26 DLP FMT PWB repair Kit if you replaced your lamp but were still getting the solid red "Lamp" light. How do we find out if the capacitors are our problem and find out if this will fix the issue?
Thanks,
John Lewis

You have to take the TV apart. Pull the electrical chassis out and look for bad electrolytic caps on the boards. The red LED probably means the 2 - 3300UF caps on the power supply board are bad. You can tell if they are bad by the fact that their tops are puffed up and they may or may not be leaking brown fluid. Compare them against the other caps on the boards and you will see how they have flat tops.

BUT before you take the TV apart you can check the error codes by pushing "menu" and "Device" at the same time and holding for about 10 seconds. The status light will blink two numbers. ex. one flash pause two flashes is 12 Error Code Probable Cause

12 No error detected
22 Recovery from momentary Reset
32 Lamp Cover open
33 Air Filter Cover open
34 Lamp abnormality
35 Chassis Fan failure
36 Exhaust (Back Cover) or Lamp Ballast Fan failure
37 Engine (DMD or Lamp) Fan failure
38 Excess Lamp Temperature
39 Excess DMD Temperature
41 Short Detected
44 DVI Cable (between Chassis and Engine) disconnected

You have a bad DM Board. You need to replace it. Changing the capacitors will not cure the problem. Completely replace the entire board

WD-52525 Shuts off, shows red lamp light even after replacing lamp


maybe your problem is in the power supply circuit of your tv,but then try to replace the flyback first maybe there is no high voltage coming out on the cap.
