Question about Mitsubishi WD-52327 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

Mitsubishi WD-52327 52 in. Rear Projection DLP

When I turn my TV on, the Timer light stays lit 'green' steady for approximately 1 min. After that, the Lamp light blinks 'green' for approx 2 min. then turns steady 'red'. The screen never turns on and I never hear any audio. This was an intermittant problem initially, then it quit doing it for about a week, now it will not come on at all, just goes thru the same cycle. I called Mitsu and they said it was the bulb. The set is barely over 1 yr old and I have a hard time believing it is the bulb. Is there something that 'tells' the set to turn on the bulb after x-amount of time? If so, I believe this may be the culprit. As stated earlier, the set just went past the 1 yr mark and the warranty is expired (of course). I have tried unplugging the set for several minutes, plugging back in and resetting the set. I have tried removing and reinstalling the bulb several times, and I continue having the same problem. I would hate to pay $200 for a new lamp only to find out that my suspicions are correct and it is not the bulb. Any suggestions?????

    As expected, I just shelled out $200 + bucks for a new lamp, and, big surprise, I have the same problem! This pisses me off to no end. The customer support folks guarantee that this is the problem. I had my suspicions all along that it was something else. There has to be something intermittantly messed up with whatever it is that 'tells' the lamp to come on. I do not get any audio unless the lamp comes on. I also found that when the lamp does 'decide' to come on, you can here a faint noise that almost sounds like an alarm prior to the light coming on....bwoop, bwoop, bwoop, then the audio and lamp come on. I have noticed that the noise doesnt happen everytime it 'decides' to come on, however, if I am having problems getting it to come on and I hear the noise, I KNOW it will come on and it does. Does ANYONE out there have any kind of clue what this problem is?????? Could it be a relay or a timer or something?????????? Thanks in advance.

I have a 2 year old Mitsubishi Rear Projection 52" model WD-52525. I recently experienced the same problem as you. My TV quit without any warning and the red lamp light came on. I bought a replacement lamp just like you did, did everything you did too, but it still didn't work either. Since it's past the 1 yr warranty (of course), I took it in to an authorized service center for an estimate. They determined the light engine failed and it will cost me $816.35 to repair. I already shelled out $240+ for a lamp, $48 for the repair estimate and I said "hell" no, I'm not going to fix it for another $800+ and bought a new TV. I'm writing a letter to Mitsubishi expressing my deep dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) with this faulty product and will be requesting reimbursement, which I probably won't get. I sincerely hope this is not the same problem your TV has, but if it is be prepared for a costly fix.

I had the same problem, started to come on..went to blinking red light then power shut down. Replaced lamp...same problem. Read about capacitor problems online, replace 3 on power board and the set has been working for 3 weeks now...give it a try, I'm not all theat techie but a few minutes with a soldering iron saved me at least $500.00 dollars that the autorized Mitsubishi dealer quoted.

Mitsubishi DLP overheating


Mitsubishi has problems with the thermal sensor going bad. They extended the warranty for several sets. The sensor is right by the lamp. Call mitsubishi and insist they do something for you. If you keep playing your set, the bulb could also be at risk. I would think your set is covered being a 62" set. Good-luck and be sure to act ASAP.
