Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
Read this post:
I pull the original bulb out and look inside the socket where the electrical connection is made between the bulb and the television. There is nothing there!!!!!! With my flashlight I can see that the connector from the TV is hanging loose and cocked at an angle. The only way to find out what is going on is to partially disassemble the TV. I take the lower back off including the fan cover on the lower left side. Under this cover is a metal plate. It looks like it might be an RF shield. I remove it partially all the way from the left corner to partially include the connection panel.
After removing this and pulling the RF shield away, I can see this little piece that have at the top of the page was what held the electrical connector on the TV side in place so the connector on the lamp assembly could slide into it. The little tines was all that gripped the TV side connector and held it and either by design flaw or excessive heat, it had warped enough to loosed and allow the connector to fall back inside the TV.
The solution was to install the lamp assembly and screw it down firmly with the thumbscrews. Then go too the back of the TV and push the TV side connector trough the hole into the bulb side connector. It wasn't a pretty sight but it worked!!
Buttoned it all backed up and I'm now back in business although I did end up with a couple of extra screws.
By the way, the new bulb did amazing things for my picture quality. Whites are white again and the blacks also look blacker. Even my wife who really doesn't care and thinks I'm a little nutty commented that the picture looked much better. The original bulb was an OSRAM and the new bulb was an OSRAM. However, the difference is really like night and day!
Sorry for the long post."
This is his picture of the little piece that fell out:
