WD-52525 flickering blue screen

When I turn my WD-52525 on, all I get is a blured, flickering blue screen and no inputted picture. I can change the inputs and the menus still appear (although blury) but the set does not appear to be getting a signal from anything.Problem just came out of nowhere when I turned it on; was perfect night before.Dont think the lamp would cause such a problem, would it?

    I have the same problem!! so I decided to change the lamp. Now my tv says it needs a new lamp! what the HECK!!! I NEED HELP!!!!!

    The flickering blue screen is making me crazy. The menus still appear but none of the inputs function. I connected a different TV to the cable box and it worked fine. So the problem is not the signal, it's the TV. I just finished paying this thing off and now it's broken after two years. I'm really disappointed... I don't think a new lamp is going to fix this either.

    I just started getting the flickering screen....not the blue screen also. I replaced my lamp last Feb (2006). Did the reset but no help.

    Any ideas?

    We also have the WD-52525. The picture was fine and then all of a sudden it became scrambled and then the screen went completely black. We still had audio at the time. We could even power the tv back on and get a running picture and then the tv would shut itself off. We attempted to replace the lamp, and when that didn't work called a technician. He told us it was the power supply, but I believe it may be the capacitors. If someone could email us the service manual I would appreciate it. Thanks

    WD-52525 fine one minute then a flickering light in the center of screen (taking up most of the screen) surrounded by blue screen. Changed inputs as well as different components with same results. Also no audio. Don't think it's the lamp either.

    My problem is the same except the flickering screen is green and not blue.

  • desolate Nov 10, 2008

    I changed the lamp in my television and at first, it would flicker colors, mostly blue and only about 2/3 of the screen from the bottom up. Now, the television won't do anything. It turns on for almost 10 seconds and then turns back off and the Lamp indicator LED stays on.

I had the same problem, a blue flickering screen and then nothing. Forunately it is still under warranty. Geek Squad Tech came out within a week and brought a replacement lamp. Still no picture. He opened the back and decided the problem was the power supply and the power supply board. Parts were ordered on 12/10/07. Still no board today. Expected shipment now on 1/23/08. I hope it shows up soon. Getting tired of looking at black screen instead of bowl games. How hard is it to get parts??

Would the light engine explain why all the video sources were supressed and displayed as blue screens yet the menu was still displayed (albeit flickering)?

In principle having a pro look at it sounds good, but if it is going to cost more than about ~$400, it's probably not worth fixing. I just got a 57" 1080p WDY577 for $1199.

The 939P977010light engine is avaiable for $359.95 here:

Or I can send the modules into PTS who will repair for reasonable flat fee (e.g. $92 for power board, $175 for DM board). Trick is to get a reasonable confidence about where the problem is.

When I have a chance I'll probably open it up and check out the notorious electrolytic caps...

It sounds like the light engine has failed..since it is expensive it would be a good idea to have a factory trained tech take a look

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 & PS 3

First make sure your hdmi cable is connected from the PS3 to the TV. Then go to netcommand, review, and make sure "monlink" is checked, click next, and finish. Select "monlink" from your device manager and turn on your PS3. If the screen is blue, go to the next step. Connect the PS3 via regular a/v cables to the front panel "input-3". Create a net-command device for input-3 as well. Switch to the input-3 device you created and turn on your PS3. Choose display settings, and change the settings to HDMI. Then click change. You'll have 30 seconds to hit device manager, change the device to "monlink", and let the PS3 unit know the setting has worked. From there you can configure. Good luck!
