Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I bought the tv used, dim picture, lamp went out after 2 weeks and lamp looked really burnt out. Replaced the lamp, lasted 3 months and then went out (lamp light on no picture, just sound). With this last lamp it took 15-30 seconds to get a picture from the time it was new until it burned out. I pulled the lamp out and it still looks new. Should I replace the lamp or does it sound like something else.
Continued lamp failures are sometimes caused by not cleaning the filter on the left rear of the tv . remove 2 screws pull off the small cover and clear the filter. vaccume it off , do not wash unless you dry it completely for a day or so (any moisture will be drawn in and can damage the set or break the lamp). do not use canned air to clean out the inner part of the tv as you can blow dust into the optics and cause light spots in the picture. the other cause is cheap lamps that just don't quite match up to the tv specs. most lamp driver board failures i have found, they used an after-market lamp that led to it (signs of excessive heat with a clean filter). thanks, techman 580-243-8025

Having the same problem with the dim picture on my WD-52525. Had the lamp replaced and still had a dim picture. My authorized dealer has been in contact with Mitsubishi Tech Support and they are thinking it's the optical engine (light engine).
If you think the replacement lamps are expensive, wait till you see the price of the optical engine. My dealer told me they run around $750.00! If this is the problem, I'm hoping they will cover it under warranty as the TV is less than 2 years old.

Do you get an error code? hold the MENU and DEVICE buttons when turning on the TV and get error code

i actually own this tv myself... that striking you here will only occur when the lamp does not fire. as far as lamp life i have found that mitsubishi has the longest lasting bulbs from my experience. i would check to make sure the connector on the lamp is seated properly into the other connector in the tv. if you know your lamp is 100% i would look at replacing the lamp ballast. ive had this tv for a few yrs now and love it.
