The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneerblue ghosting all over the - 2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D

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.

Screen dark,wont stay on. 52hm95


Here's the online manual for your TV:

http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/42HM95/docs/42HM95_om_e.pdf

Read the section about the red/green lights in front. It sounds like the lamp went out. Mine consistently goes out once every year to year and a half. If you plan on keeping the television, purchase two bulbs, so you have one on hand in case your new one goes out.

Good luck.

Mitsubishi wd52525 problems


i have thought about this since you first posted it. if the demo is good then the light engine is ok. it sounds like a problem in the chassis. probably on the DM and the terminal board. to repair the chassis would cost about $250.00 plus shipping.

1.5 days after replacing both IC chips the blue started ghosting again and then...


The biggest problem you stated yourself. You bought aftermarket type IC's. You should have been smarter and purchased the correct IC's for the set. All IC's are not alike, even with the same number on them. Aftermarket IC's are just that. Built in China or are factory rejects. You might get away with replacing the iC's again from a reliable dealer or you might have messed up the power supply in the meantime. Good Luck
