Re: mitsubishi 62525-wavy picture
No, this is not the lamp. More than likely you have failing capacitors on your Format (FMT) board, or your DM board.. these Mitsu's are RIDDLED with problems like this - I have one here that the customer did not want to repair, and I cannot justify fixing it for myself even...they have alot of problems with the FMT boards, DM boards, PWB boards, and the actual color wheel itself.. Mitsubishi makes a great set, but I have come to believe the X2525 line and the newer revisions are just as bad...

The best way to clear the picture on these sets is to remove the screen and clean the mirrors. If it is still not clear after that it may be a bad lamp or failing capacitors in the chassis. They cause wavy lines and makes the picture blurry.
Make sure u replace the lamp cover as the safety switch need to be closed to make the set work. If new lamp did not repair your problem , then it may well be the Ballast Board, Sometimes call the Lamp Driver.
Cleaning the mirrors will not increase the brightness much. I would double check the lamp setting in the Menu and also the setting of the picture and brightness settings. Many times these are adjustable independently for different inputs. Besides this, I would look at the Ballast and or the Power Supply to cause the problem. I would recommend a professional to look at it if it is not correctable from the Main Menu of the set.
Hope this helps,
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on
the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device
and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected
