Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
We had a power outage and when the power came back on the blinking green light appeared. I tried to reset it and can't get it to reset. Need help on what to do.
Is this a WD-52525? If so, and the timer light doesn't stop blinking, you have a problem in your electrical chassis.
In essence, you can do 1 of 2 things:
1. If the 8 capacitors on the DM and FMT circuit boards are vented, you can slug through disassembling the entire electrical chassis, dig out the 2 boards, re-solder in some new caps, reassemble the darn thing and pray to the gods.
I've done it a few times on some sets; it's a **** shoot on whether it works or not.
2. You can send the chassis off to Mits for a rebuild. Expect to shell out about $400-$500 for the rebuild. And, if you are squeamish about taking out the chassis, expect another $200-$300 for someone to take it out, box it up and put it back in.
Oh, and expect to wait anywhere from 4-8 weeks for it to be returned to you, as well.
It's a shame, I know. I wish there was better news.
Remember, this only applies if you have a DLP (those 52-525's are notorious for this), and the timer light never goes off.

This is not a lamp problem. The indication for the lamp is the orange light. The green light will eventualy stop blinking but it may take several attempts of unpluging it and plugging it back in and waiting. The power supply was getting weak or was damaged by the sudden power outage. There are some capacitors that are overworked in the power supply on all Mitsubishi sets Rear projection and DLP and everyone I have ever seen has needed replacement. If you cant do the repairs yourself, it will need to go to a shop. Good luck.

It most likely burned out the Lamp. DLP TV's need time to cool the Lamp after power is turned off.The fan will run for a few minutes after a normal power off condition from the front control button or the remote.When you lost power, the lamp was still hot and was unable to cool down.You can replace the Lamp yourself.Go to www.dlplamps.com
