Question about Mitsubishi WD-62525 62" Rear Projection HDTV

Dark blotches behind the screen

Just recently, I've noticed several dark blotches of varying color on the screen. It's literally all over the screen when I'm watching TV. I'm thinking that it's just dirty behind the screen, and if I was able to remove the screen I could clean it. Can someone please tell me how to remove the screen on this TV? Thank you.

    Well, I did exactly as you said, and the blotches are still there. It didn't help at all. Thanks for posting, though. Any other suggestions? Is it possible I may have to remove the entire screen and clean behind there? If so, could someone please post step by step instructions on how to do so? I'd be so grateful. Thank you!

    We have the same problem and the picture is very dark we have to keep lighting low. We have had the screen off and cleaned it that is not the problem. We were told by a tv repair man that the light engine needs to be replaced for $1,000.00. Now this is our second tv, we had another that developed the same problem and it was taken out and cleaned and it was better but they did not get all of it and my husband wanted a new tv, but low and behold we have the same problem.So what I think is that the light engine has smoke film and dust on it, we are smokers. It is now out of warranty, so if anyone can tell us how to take it apart to reach the light engine we would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Laurie

When I had this problem with my 52525 I cleaned the bulb with a lint free cloth. The dark blotches went away.

You might have a Service Co. come out and look at it. It sounds like the Z module is not doing it's job of erasing all prior images after a scene change. Some models there are adjustments for that internally. ( only for a tech ) Start a paper trail now.

Dark Blotches


This is probably caused by dust, either on the mirror, lens, or possibly inside the light engine. There is a 5" dia hole on the side of the back of the tv where you can take out one screw and take the door off. this is just big enough for you to put your hand through to clean the mirror and lens. Hope this helps.

Blotches on screen.


suspect the optical engine. are they present after initial turn off before the blinking light comes on and the cooling process starts? if so then it will be optical engine issue. can be very pricey by the way

Dark blotches / Dirty behind screen


it could be dust in the mirror or in the optics,in this set if im not mistaken you have acces to the mirror from the back, anywhere from 12-20 screws it sould be easy to remove plastic cover first and the the mirror.this mirror are very delicate you dont want to leave fingr prints on it it will show just like the dust is showing right know. taking the mirror off will also give acces to the lense.
use someting soft to clean it.
