WD-62525 horizontal lines in picture when using component inputs

My WD-62525 works perfectly when viewing HDMI inputs but when I use the component inputs there are horizontal lines moving over the picture. I opened up the TV and found a number of puffy 1000 uF capacitors which I have replaced but the problem remains. Has anyone seen a problem like this and know how to fix it?BTW, the self diagnostic code is 12 (Ok).

Code 12 means the set isnt experiencing any shutdown symptons. I would check for more capacitors in the same circuit where you found the other often they show no visible sign of deterioration. If you need a service manual to figure out which capacitors are in that same circuit you can get the manbual for your set for 10.99 at the following link. They will even email it to you if you go back to the site and let them know you want it emailed. heres the link hope it helps.

I have a wd-62525 dlp i have pic and sound through ant. and hdmi but on component and video inputs i only get sound no pic

It seems to be some fault with its HDMI cable you connect to this device from the source. As you get sound by HDMI, and no picture at all, this indicates the fault with cable itself. There is a cution notice says that " To assure continued FCC compliance, the user must use a shielded video interface cable
with bonded ferrite cores at both ends, when using the PC or HDMI input."
Cheang the cable and check.

Scrolling diagonal lines

The cable box signal on the components video have a too high refresh rate frequency, that is the reason for the lines.
Use RCA cables or an alternative connection.
Other solution is changing the display out settings for cable box (from PAL to NTSC etc.)

I have seen this problem before. It is usually caused by a malfunctioning color wheel. Replacing it should resolve the problem. Let me know if you wish to fix it yourself so that I can find you a replacement.

Bad capacitors. On my set HDMI looks clear, but component inputs have moving horizontal lines. There's a guy named Tbully on AVS forum that did a PowerPoint presentation that will point you to the capacitors to change. Sorry I don't have a link at this time.

I had the same problem and I found that it was 2 caps on the power supply board. I had both caps replaced and it worked perfect. While it is apart see if any other caps are bad( if they are puffed up in the center they are bad).

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525, and when the Directv installer came out, he said that he could not connect the box to my tv because he didn't know how to get my tv in HDMI mode. From what I am reading, it...

Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.

Connection of HDMI and Directv box

Monlink is the Connection I used with my Directv. All you need to use is the HDMI cords. Are you trying to also connect to stereo system or something other than a straight HDMI connection from Directv Box to WD-62525
