Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bad Lamp for TV

I have a 6 year old Mitsubishi WD-52531 and the picture is getting dark. I ordered a replacement lamp #915043010, installed it as directed and closed the rear panel. When I plugged it in, I saw the flashing green timer light and then the lamp light came on as red/orange. Was the replacement DOA, the old lamp still works when reinstalled.

SOURCE: WD-52525 Red lamp Indicator

usually with that model when you get a 34 eror code for lamp abnormality, its directly related to the capacitors on the Power Pwb. You can get the V26 Power PWB repair kit at the following link which repairs that issue. It contains the replacement High temp capacitors with the board location numbers and PWB identification as well as the service manual on CD. Heres the link its under their repair kit ctegory.

SOURCE: No picture and no sound after replace lamp for Mitsubishi WD-51525

I was having the same issue after a lamp replacement and the warranty tech said that it was the lamp power supply that went out. The part was on back order and look at the board neaqr the lamp and it had a blown capacitor. This would make since why the lamp would come on then shut off right away. She replaced the capacitor and works fine.

Failed caps on the power supply will cause that. The V26 Power pwb repair kit will usually correct that issue. Its available from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the capacitors and the CD with instructions.

Lamp life for this model is 2 years or 2000 hours, less if a non Mitsubishi lamp is used, sounds like a bad lamp.

The lamp light is blinking orange and we just replaced the lamp! on model WD-52531


You may have not plugged the lamp in fully or have not put the lamp door back properly. If you have done this properly and have the blinking problem then you are likely to have a bad ballast. This ballast supplies the voltage to light up the lamp. But first look on the front of the set for a small push button that says "system restore/reset". Use a ball point pen to press.

Picture is very dark


its probably the lamp going bad. dark picture is a pre-cursor to failure. these lamps are supposed to last 2-4 years but for some reason the mitsubishi ones never do. you can replace the lamp yourself, and if it is going bad, you can cool it down, pull it out, and you will see it will look kind of bulged or white in the bulb part. instructions are in your user manual. if it is under a year old, mitsubishi should still cover it. if its just over a year, you can try to call them and complain and maybe they'll back it up. let me know if you need further assistance.

I have a Mitsubishi big screen. the lamp went out and i installed the new one. it worked about a day or so. then i couldn't turn it on anymore. lamp button blinks and no picture. i took out new lamp and it...


Where did you get the lamp? Did it look like original part? If not, you need to get your money back. There are a few out there selling replacement lamps that are just cheap knock-offs.

Mitsubishi WD-52531 not working after replacing the buld.


Check to make sure the lamp is in correctly and that you've closed everything up properly. If you don't close the cover, the sensors will tell the computer in the TV that the door is open and won't let the TV turn on.

Other than that, could be a bad lamp or bad ballast.

Always buy OEM lamps, or better-than-oem equivalents! Philips lighting is the best lamp manufacturer out there for these TVs. They invented the thing!

Buy from Authorized distributors, and don't buy the "cheap" stuff. savnig 20 bucks will cost you more in the long run--believe me!

Same problem with Mits WD-52531


The first thing to try is to reclose the access door to the lamp area. There are interlocks there that may be marginally connected. Try to reclose all access doors and report the results here.

Thanks,
Dan
