Question about Mitsubishi WD-62525 62" Rear Projection HDTV
Make sure to check or defeat the micro-switch for the filter cover, and for the lamp, these can also cause red lights..
Here is the Honest truth...
From what you are describing, I would say that you are encountering the "famous" problems of the mitsubishi v26 chassis based tv's - Mitsubishi has used this chassis in almost ALL of the DLP tv's they made, and they are loaded with problems..In my opinion they are complete lemons.
There are almost 50 capacitors in this set on the DM board, Format board, power supply and the terminal boards that were cheaply made, and go out of specs making this tv do many different "strange" things until the capacitors on the DM board go bad, and the tv will simply sit flashing the green timer led and do nothing. This is known as the "flashing green light of death" -- The red indicator with a good lamp is an indication that yours may be on its way as well.
You may want to google "mitsubishi dlp lawsuit" I have heard of several class-action suits against mitsu for these sets.
Mitsubishi is supposedly offering a refurbishment service on these chassis' and I have heard several different prices - from $250 to $850... you may want to give mitsubishi a call and see what they say, but honestly for that kind of money, I would recommend investing it in a new set..
I have worked on several of these sets, and i now wont touch them due to the fact that they are so problem riddled--between the bad capacitors in the chassis, the light engine problems and the bad thermistors in the set, (not to mention how long the DLP lamps last) ....when you DO repair one, and something ELSE fails 2 months later, it makes it look like it "wasnt fixed right the first time" It's a complete customer relations nightmare!
The other possibility "could" be the light engine, but this problem sounds more like the capacitors in the chassis are finally giving out.
Let me know, if need further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
