Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

3 Answers

WD-52525 Lamp failed 2x in 4 it the Lamp?

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.

    after installing new bulb, on our 60VS810 tv, it still doesn't have a picture and the temp light and lamp light still come on. Also there is no sound-what's wrong?

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.

Lamp failure in WD-52525

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.

Hello, I have a 52525 and the lamp indicator went

push the menu and device buttons on the front of the set both in together and hold for 6 seconds and see what two digit error codes blinks. It will most likely blink a 3 pause then 4 and then repeat the sequence indicating a 34 error for lamp abnormality which is almost always caused by faile capacitors on the Power pwb.

No picture

Lamps have been known to burn out the power supply to the DM assembly. If there is no visible damage to the lamp, your problem may be the power supply or the board. Good luck.

Mitsubishi Wd-52525 HDTV Stutis light constant red

Here is the link to the manual if you need it; page 97 states that the lamp is the problem -(the flashing green just means startup - page 11) 14 months sounds about right for a new lamp if you use it a lot - that would be an average of 5&1/2 hours a day if the lamp went to 4000 hrs - although these lamps are more dependable than normal lamps, they can still fail anytime especially if they have been touched on the glass by accident while installing or cleaning, or if the tv is often switched on and off. The fact that there was no message on screen may mean that the lamp has not gone past the warning trigger number of hours - sorry i haven't found what that value is. page 95&96 gives all instructions how to replace lamps and where to get spares - if the price seems bad then search around - prices often vary a lot on these lamps. It is a little disappointing that mitsubishi where not able to diagnose this - please let them know that their technical service is poor in the hope that they try harder. I hope this helps :) Hope this helps :)
