Mitubishi WD 62725 - Ballast Problem??

My Mitsubishi WD 62725 was giving me a solid red light status code (lamp failure)? While the lamp was less than a year old, I replaced it anyway. The TV game me the same solid red light lamp failure code. I took the module out and had a TV repairman look at and fix any abnormalities (it tests fine) but the TV doesn't work? I then switched out the ballast and the TV worked fine (for 30 minutes) then turned off and gave me the red light lamp failure code again? I know my module is fine, I know my lamp is fine, could my TV be burning out the ballast, or is the problem happening before the ballast?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Could be the FMT pcb or the Dm pcb board you should check the caps on them and replace any faulty ones.

The capacitors on the power board are the most likely the cause of the problem.

Hello my name is Devin, I have a wd-65735 model and I just purchased it off of a friend and braught it home. He had told us from laying it on its side while bringing it home it said in the guide to let it...


Caveat: I am not a tech, I just read through the Mitsubishi service manual, and have worked on different model TV that I have owned (older model of this one) I am a little unclear on the second set of lights but I think the combination *may* indicate that the lamp fan is not starting (there are two fans though), if the blinking red is the status light. It is possible the connector for that got jostled during the trip, something fell into it from being on the side (wire or loose something) and is blocking it from spinning now, or a module unseated a bit,and is loose, or the lamp is no longer seated correctly (though the lamp light does not appear to be on) or none of these. :) These are just guesses.
Be careful if you open it up, due to potential for shock. Wear gloves, and power it down first (then unplug). Reseat any fan connectors.

Google: I used "wd-65735 status lights" to find a service pdf , it's for V39 chassis (several models)

From page 24 of Service Manual :

3. Error Code Operational Check Note: The TV must be in "Shut Down" and not have been switched Off, to perform the Error Code Opera- tional Check. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to "12" No Error.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT" and "MENU" buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds, activates the Error Code Mode. The "TIMER LED" flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problem has occurred since the last Initialization.
Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.

  • TheLEDthenflashesindicatingthevalueoftheLSD(onesdigit)oftheErrorCode.
  • The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times. Example: If the Error Code is "23", the LED will flash two times, pause, and then flash three times.

No sound or picture. red timer light on. wd60735


Hi there,

This model as 3 LED indicator lights:

1) Power/Timer 2) Status 3) Lamp


If "STATUS" LED is blinking RED:

1) Internal Fan has stopped. These tv's require fans, to prevent overheating and causing damage.

If "STATUS" LED is solid RED:


1) Circuit failure (short)
2) Disconnected DVI cable, chassis to engine
3) No LAMP-EN signal from Engine to turn the lamp On.
4) Ballast UART communication problem.

If "LAMP" LED is solid RED:

1) Lamp Failure - Lamp failed to turn On.
2) Lamp is broken (e.g. burst or blown)
3) Lamp turns Off during P-ON

There is no data relating to TIMER LED being solid RED.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Scott

Hi, have you replaced the lamp after 2-3 yrs of usage? The lamps used by mitsubishi tend to last around 4000 hrs 1-3 yrs.It is common for the green light to light up.Other common failures are the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.Also check if its not overheatin, dust out the fans.Heres where u can get the lamp or ballast http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=wd-52631

Blinking Green light after Capacitor kit replacement WD-62725


I just repaired two Mit WD-62725 sets in the last two weeks.
The first one had bad caps on the power board and the FMT board. The scond one had bad caps on four out of the five boards.
Also, on the FMT board, there was a blown surface-mount fuse.
I advise checking all of the boards for bad caps. If you fine a bad 1000uf cap, replace all of the 1000uf's on the board.
Hop this helps,
Dan

Lamp Issue with Mitsubishi WD-62725


Hi I am Vortash it sounds as if the actual fault is in your ballast circuit this is the circuit that fires up the arc on the lamp and sends the signal to the main board that the lamp is running , if this is faulty no signal is received by the board and the lamp light comes on when this happens there is usually still sound but not always as sometimes the problem affects the power supply also .. this is a job for a trained engineer as voltages at the ballast are sometimes in excess of 25000 volts at first arc that then settles to a lower voltage to run ... regards Vortash

Mitsubishi WD 52525 lamp replaced, no picture, red light


You have to take the TV apart. Pull the electrical chassis out and look for bad electrolytic caps on the boards. The red LED probably means the 2 - 3300UF caps on the power supply board are bad. You can tell if they are bad by the fact that their tops are puffed up and they may or may not be leaking brown fluid. Compare them against the other caps on the boards and you will see how they have flat tops.

BUT before you take the TV apart you can check the error codes by pushing "menu" and "Device" at the same time and holding for about 10 seconds. The status light will blink two numbers. ex. one flash pause two flashes is 12 Error Code Probable Cause

12 No error detected
22 Recovery from momentary Reset
32 Lamp Cover open
33 Air Filter Cover open
34 Lamp abnormality
35 Chassis Fan failure
36 Exhaust (Back Cover) or Lamp Ballast Fan failure
37 Engine (DMD or Lamp) Fan failure
38 Excess Lamp Temperature
39 Excess DMD Temperature
41 Short Detected
44 DVI Cable (between Chassis and Engine) disconnected

You can buy replacement caps from Mouser electronics online. There are plenty of solutions detailing how to do this already posted.

STATUS LIGHT SOLID RED ON 73 DLP MITSU MODEL WD73735


The colorwheel is your problem. To confirm this, unplug the tv, then listen thru the air vents in the back as you plug the tv in. You will probably hear a ticking sound. If you do, that is the colrwheel. If the colrwheel is working, youwill be able to hear it "spin up". It will be a sudden high pitch whine. Let me know if I can be of further assistance
