Re: Mitsubishi WD-52525

By "honeycomb" do you mean it looks something like 96 colums with horizontal lines running across them, left to right, alternating in intensity from top to bottom and side to side?? If so that's a common failure of the FMT board Mitsubishi p/n# 930b924002 and a spendy little board it is... Average cost approximately $425.00 dollars plus shipping...
Another alternative is to have it rebuilt at PTS Electronics for about $350.00 dollars plus shipping.
Any qualified shop might use one of these alternatives or bench repair it instead. A lot would depend on the findings of their tests.
Good Luck!
And please don't kill the messenger...

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 picture problem

you didnt mention which two boards you replaced the caps on however each board in the chassis has the same capacitor issue. Sounds like you need either of the four V26 Repair kits. The FMT repair kit, The signal Repair kit, The Terminal 1 or the terminal 2 repair kit

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.

The DM board wont cause that symptom. The DM only directs power that is recieved from the PWB to the ballast fans and etc. That sounds like a problem with the FMT. capacitors 1000uf @16volts numbers C8F21, C8F22, C8F19, and C8F27. those will cause distortions in the video on the V26 chassis. Let me know if you need more info
