Your first problem is its a zenith {snicker}, The most likely reason for this is weak tubes and seeing that they are $180 + to replace it wouldnt be feesible to repair. HOWEVER you can try to turn the G2 up on the tubes but if it looks washed out and the whites arent wite just junk her and get you a new HD model besides HD is the upcoming standard in 2009.

HCL652W picture faded will bulb replacement fix this

I would say that it is not worth replacing the bulbs. I had a similar experience with an old rear projection TV like that and I just cleaned all the dust out of it as well as I could. i cleaned the back of the screen, the mirror that the image reflects off of, and the bulbs themselves. I used a dry micro fiber cloth so as not to scratch anything. doing this might help you some, but if it is working and it is bright enough for you after a few minutes, I would just live with it until you can upgrade to a newer TV.

Mitsubishi 10 yr old rear projection

Well, there is no lamp or simple part you can unplug and plug in. I have seen a couple of those sets with that symptom recently and it is caused by a faulty 9 volt regulator on the small signal board. This is not an easy part to change and the repair should absolutely be handled by a tech experienced in Mitsubishi projection sets.

If you want to attempt the repair the fix for most Hitachis going dark is to remove the front panel and get access to the 3 CRT's (picture tubes) Then one by one with the set off and unplugged, remove the CRT boards from the CRT's and blow out the sockets with compressed air. Once all three are done cover it all back up and reapply power and 99% of the time your picture will return to normal.
