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.

I have Hitachi 50V500A I was watching morning news than I shut it down properly by remote control, after few hours I try to turn it on, nothing , no picture just dark screen, I can hear light noise from the back of the TV going on and off within seconds but that's all, when I push the power TV button on my remote control I see the power lights goes on and they are blinking for about 10 sec then the TV is shutting down automatically but still no picture. I'll be more than thankfull if you can get me any answer. I have a family friend who told me about your support center and I hope you can find me an answer for my problem, thank you and have a nice evening.

this is a crt type tv- no lamps just crt's if it was moved recently then a seal could have been damaged on the crt cuasing coolant to leak down the neck getting into the socket. this will cause trouble for sure also could have a crack in the crt. look for a sticky liquid in the bottom of the unit.
sometime the crt's can ark and rip out a video output chip on the crt socket check it out.
not common but not unheard of.cheers

Along with the instructions for the lamp installation, you should have revceived instructions on how to reset the lamp counter. If not, this operation is listed in the owner's manual. If you can not locate that manual, please confirm your model number and I will post the instructions. Since the counter has not been reset, the TV will continue to show the "error" message.
