To insure the best picture quality for your unit you should clean the mirrors and lenses on picture tubes every 3-4 years if you smoke in the house this be done once a year because of the nicotine build up you can do this yourself by popping the screen off the front very carefully or call a shop they should do it for about a hundred dollars but well worth tv will look a hundred times better

Mitsu #WD52327 DLP replaced bulb but hazy picture

Did you clean the small mirror. Dust will cover this mirror and give you a very hay picture. This is easy job and takes 15 minutes at the most. Someone posted detailed destructions on how to do this already if you look for it under WD52525 hazy picture.

Screen hazzy and issue with blue convergence

bad convergence would cause show to look as if it was supposed to be a 3-d movie, if a bulb was going out then people would look purple blue -green,or some other off color, so likely the green bulb is going out from the color of the people you described.

Dark Picture

Sorry Don

Smoking absolutely destroys these TVs. Just like Teeth, the smoke gets inside and permenantly yellows the Light Prism. Since the Light Prism is responsible for passing light in these units, the yellowing dims and yellows the picture. There is NO fix for this.

Cleaning these is dangerous since all the parts have either a UV or Polarizing coating on them.

Again, I am sorry but this is the truth. On the other hand, try pressing the "Video" Button to see if one of these settings is any improvement

Dull picture on my KP61s65

You can safely clean the mirror and lenses, it can greatly increase your picture if its dirty. If you unplug your tv you can safely remove the back and gain access to the lenses. All it takes is a philips screwdriver. After you remove the back, you can remove the light barrier between the upper and lower half to free up some room. Take a dry scratch-free cloth and wipe the dust from the lenses. If they're grimy, use a little lens cleaner (liquids used sparingly here, electronics don't like liquids, be careful) You can look up into the top and see if the mirror is dirty. A flashlight shined on it will illuminate the dust/dirt if its there. If you don't smoke you likely won't need to clean the mirror, but it may need it. Use windex or similar for tough grime.. I can usually reach up to get the whole mirror but I've heard of using a swiffer mop to reach the top. Removing the screen is difficult but possible if needed to get inside. Don't touch the back of the screen but lightly with a rag to get cobwebs, etc.

Optical Engine in a Mits WD-52527

You have to be careful when replacing the projection bulb assembly. Don't aways look for the cheapest as they are rip-offs that do not last long and are not as bright. Dont buy OEM "compatible" only OEM originals. Call Mits Customer Service for advice

Rear projection clean mirror

You can get to it by removing the back panel. You also have to kind of lay down beside it and kind of twist around with your head to see what your doing. But it can be done. It helps if you take the two screw out that keeps the shelf that's around the picture tube assemblies it gives you a little more room. Don't use windex though it will streak it up bad. Just a damp soft cloth and then dry it good. Makes a big difference in picture quality.
