Question about Mitsubishi WD52527 52" Projection HDTV

Different kind of blinky light problem

Here's a real head scratcher........ I've got a WD-52527 LCD. I got home and had a yellow blinking status light. I checked the filter cover and it's all good. I unplugged the set overnight and it comes up fine in the morning. But it won't come on a couple of hours later. I unplug/replug the set and wait the 70 seconds or so. When I push the power button I get a blinking yellow status light AND a blinking green lamp light. I cannot find what this code means anywhere. I tried getting the code through using the Device/Menu buttons but I don't get consistant codes. One time I got 56 another I just got a 4. Sorry for such the long post. I'm really frustrated. I hope someone smarter than me can figure this out.

    I looked for loose connections and couldn't find any. I took it in and they had to take apart the light engine reseat and resolder all the connections internal to the engine/shutter. I had recently moved the TV across town and that's probably what caused my problem. Works great now with no problems.

I have the same problem and found thecode in a service manual. 56 is Shutter Not Connected. I found another individual who said they took it too a shop and they repaired loose conections. I am going to tear into mine to see what it takes to repair it. I will keep you posted.

I have a blinking yellow status light on my mitsubishi 73837

blinking yellow indicates no lamp or the lamp door is open. if you had the back off you may have gotten the door switch aligned improperly. the door switch is located just inside the lamp door.
the lamp may also be bad.

lamp part# 915B403001

Mitsubishi TV troubleshooting
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

Status Light Problem

Is the status light yellow or red? If it is yellow, then check the dust filter cover. That cover might be off or not secure. If the status light is red and blinking, then try unplugging the TV for a minute. If the error doesn't resolve the TV needs service. If it is out of warranty, you might want to open up the set and look for any obvious problems on the circuit boards (scorch marks, soot, bulging or leaking capacitors (look like cylinders on tripods)).

I hope this helps.

You have to pull the light engine to get to the pbs fan it is the one located closest to the lense on the light engine. you should be able to see if the fan is turning without removing the engine.

Mitsubishi WD-62525 yellow blinking status light

Check that the lamp door is closed all the way. There is a saftey switch that closes from the door being on all the way. If not the status light will keep blinking. There is also a switch on the air filter door.

TV was working earlier, today came home no green power light no nothing

I looked up the manual online - after you replace the bulb, you need to reset the bulb life timer. Using the TV remote push the menu button, SETUP menu, select the lamp reminder option to reset the hours to zero. That might help the status indicators.
