Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV won't turn on, no status lights, nothing.

So i was watching tv tonight, and next thing i know, the tv just up and shuts off. i turned it back on after about 10-15 seconds, and it came back on, and then within 30 sec. the red status light came on and the tv shut off again. it is a mitsu. wd-52525. the light was replaced less than a year ago. i have noticed that after i turn it off, a couple hours later, it still sounds like a fan or something is running inside the tv. i didnt pay too much attention to it, but now there are no sounds or anything working on the tv. i hit the reset button, and tried the device/menu combo and nothing. i took off the back, and couldnt find any fuses. i am not much for electric repair, but i was hoping you guys might be able to give me some ideas as to what might be causing the problem. i hope i gave sufficent information.

thanks in advance,

Urn on you tv after it goes off
go to front press menu and device at same time
it will recycle and the green will start flashing
count the cycles a three flash pause and than a 7 flash
will mean a bad fan
there is fan in the back that cools a heat sink
it is easy to get to
sometimes the connection goes bad
you can check your fan
dont order one from mit
this is a standard 3 wire 50mm x50mm computer heat sink fan
take yours out and find one to match
cost about 6-8 dollars unless you have laying form old computers
you have to take off the plastic cover in the back no big deal
with cover off yu will see a metal cover looks like a tunnel at the bottom
three screws removes it wires are under
after removal you will see the fan and heat sink
put you filter on the side back on with the two screws
so that the tv will start plug it back in turn power and see if the fan spins
if not check connects no run after that
than replace this fan
mine worked fine with new fan
if need more help you email me at

My TV won't turn on. It was fine this afternoon and when I tried to put in on tonight, nothing.

The key here is does the red power light come on? If not follow power cord inside to the fuse that is directly in line with the cord.

If other let me know.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
