Mitsubishi WD-52525 image and brightness problem.

I have a 3-1/2 year old Mitsubishi WD-52525 and it was working great. But from last few days its picture image is not sharp enough and also it is not bright enough. I tried to make the picture 100% bright but still it is quite dark and faded.

Please suggest some solutions. Might be it is the lamp alignment but I am not sure. I have not moved/relocate my TV since last 2 years. No message on the screen.

Yes, they dim as they age, and you've done well to get 3 years out of one.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy.

You need to replace the capacitors on the FMT PWB this is a common problem with the V26 chassis which is what your model number is. They have some bad capacitors that need to be Changed. There is a repair Kit available for the FMT repair.Let me know if you would like the link for the repair Kit. Please respond to this same post if you do want the repair kit which does involve soldering.

SOURCE: Tv brightness

I just bought an e 62525 on craigslist for $300 dollars. The guy had it in his garage because of a degraded picture... white out haze and virtually no black ... I surfed for similar issues most referring to the light engine. However; going back to basics. I removed the front panel assembly (approximately 16 screws including the center panel surrounding the card/rca ports in the front). The main mirror was spotless (in itself missleading) but the projection lense and the smaller mirror were frosted over with 3+ years of fine dust. I cleaned them with a simple cloth. I also noted that the foam insert surrounding the lense had gaps due to age which allowed excessive light sepage (the white out problem). I repositioned the foam as best I could. Then simply stuffed a black cloth over the foam but firmly arround the lense (keeping the foam intact as well). This blocked "all" light sepage. Bottom line is that I now have a picture quality that is flat out incredible! This is one bad mutha (shut yo mouth) tv. P.S. I'm just an average guy with an electric screw driver.

as i previously posted, my picture was dim, muddy looking after replacing lamp with osram lamp. i fixed mine by taking the screen off and cleaning the small mirror. it had a thick layer of dust on it, cleaned with a microfiber cloth. no water, no glass cleaners. i also used a very fine new small paint brush and dusted the projector lens which also had a dust film. brightness, contrast and clarity returned!

disconnect the connector for the front switch control board. Try turning it on with the remote. If it works replace that board, also look for bad caps on the small signal board. they're 1000Mf 16v

Our Mitsubishi WD 52525 goes to blue screen and shuts off.

It sounds like you TV is overheating and the video is suffering and the lamp is overheating as well. Also, if your TV is over 2-3 years old, the mirrors (behind and below the big front screen) desperately need to be cleaned. Clean all filters and fans as well. (Look on side and behind the unit). Is the TV in a "hot" environment and/or dirty environment? DLP TV's are NOT sealed units. They need to be cleaned every few years to work well to have a good, clear, bright picture.

Mitsubishi WD-52525

Normal 0 The Mitsubishi WD-52525 has a serious capacitor problem as discussed in this forum overseen by a Mitsubishi certified repair technician: There has been a worldwide problem in computers and TVs over thepast several years with faulty electrolytic capacitors (from Taiwan) thatdecay, dry out, swell and die. The power supply is often the firstcomponent to go bad, but other systems also degrade over time. As theforum explains , this problem is widespread in these sets causing multipletypes of display problems after several years of use. On my set, I also got a blue screen with a lighter blue ball in the middle. Mitsubishi is awareof the problem and will cover most of the cost of repairing the chassis, evenyears out of warranty, but apparently ONLY if you get an estimate from aMitsubishi certified repair station and contact their customer support BEFOREdoing any work on the set. I just followed the recommended procedure onthat forum and Mitsubishi is covering half the cost of my $700+ repair when my3+ year-old set recently died and showed only this blue screen on all inputs.

Mitsubishi WD-52525 - Picture is not horizontally level

You would need the service manual for that adjustment. It is outlined in the service manual on how to adjust the tilt. It is a mechanical adjustment. You can get the service manual emailed to you instantly after purchase at this link.
