I seriously doubt it is the light engine... I've owned my exact model for 2 years and can tell you as much or more than the average tech. I own my own PC business therefore have an electronics background although there is always something someone else does through trial and error to find a more viable alternative to changing the light engine.

First, unplug the tv, then take the filter out and clean it.. blow air through the TV vent and fans. Next, remove the panel below the panel it pops off. There are 2 big steps that you need to understand what to do in order to not damage the tv... First, the lamp is removed and placed on a hard surface free of water oil dirt and certainly don't lay it on the carpet. take the canned air and blow the fan off and general cleaning area where you can reach. Next part of step is to leave this out and remove the row of screws on the bottom carefully and put them in a dish. remove the surround screws in back from the bottom to the top and across the top and back down the other side. dont' go below the screws around back that are the bottom as you don't need to disassemble the tv, just want to remove the screen for cleaning.

Once removed, there is a plug for the wired display buttons to work and interact and be careful pulling that apart. Now, slightly lift up on the screen on the sides and it should pop off. lay the screen vertically not flat on the floor. Take a dust remover like one swiffer makes that removes all dust. IF the dust is really like a film, well you can lightly spray it with eyeglass cleaner (no amonia) and clean it off with a cotton towel but remember the towel will leave lint and dust. So afterward take off the dust with the swiffer dust removing duster.

I wouldn't remove this if you aren't mechanically inclined. However, I want you to also look at the lamp as they do dim after time but it should be okay. Anyway look for darker areas in the lamp. If so replace the lamp AFTER you try the tv first to see if it is better.

I got dust in my tv the first time when workers turned on the tv while they were tiling my living room corner and sucked in dust. Since then I've performed similar cleaning on multitudes of different brands, all with similar results that you will agree is outstanding or at least 80% better.

The light engine is that part that displays the picture on the screen. its like a filmprojector. if you need the complete LE, you run in about 1200-1600 dollars.Mitsubishi DLP's are known for collecting great amounts of dust, so try to clean the filters first and remove all the dust you can careful,do not use a vaccuum as they can damage the electronics and the fans.....

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.

Picture getting darker over the years

It could be your Light Engine. However, I would first check a few things:

1. Make sure your Low Power/Lamp settings are adjusted so that they meet your brightness needs.

2. Make sure you used a Mitsubishi original lamp, as generics get chewed through fast and hard.

3. Try another lamp; sometimes you can get a bad one in the bunch.

All those things don't work, consider a Light Engine ($400 + for parts; $300+ for labor)

Buzzing noise from Mitsubishi DLP WD-52327 after replacing bulb

Did your replace lamp come on the screen or did you lose picture? Just because the LED indicator suggest replace lamp it doesn't mean it needs it. If your pix was dull or loss of brightness then replace it, if not then just reset your lamp timer, check your owners manual for instructions.

Dull almost Foggy picture.

you need to take the screws out from around the screen in the back, on edges, go to the front and take the screws out from the bottom of the screen, should be 4 or 6 in the front, pick up on the screen and lift off, only about 8 pounds, now clean the little mirror in front of the projector, and clean the dust off the projector lence, that will solve it, iv had to do this on about 50 of thease tv's

Tv brightness

I just bought an e 62525 on craigslist for $300 dollars. The guy had it in his garage because of a degraded picture... white out haze and virtually no black ... I surfed for similar issues most referring to the light engine. However; going back to basics. I removed the front panel assembly (approximately 16 screws including the center panel surrounding the card/rca ports in the front). The main mirror was spotless (in itself missleading) but the projection lense and the smaller mirror were frosted over with 3+ years of fine dust. I cleaned them with a simple cloth. I also noted that the foam insert surrounding the lense had gaps due to age which allowed excessive light sepage (the white out problem). I repositioned the foam as best I could. Then simply stuffed a black cloth over the foam but firmly arround the lense (keeping the foam intact as well). This blocked "all" light sepage. Bottom line is that I now have a picture quality that is flat out incredible! This is one bad mutha (shut yo mouth) tv. P.S. I'm just an average guy with an electric screw driver.

Mitsubishi WD-52327 Picture flickers and goes blue

In your case I've seen this and it was a electrical issue between the DLP fan and board. The tv could have a problem with the digital tuner and not kicking a code due to low voltage ... it isn't expensive to fix, just hard to diagnose.

Do you smoke? The fans suck in smoke and it gets tar build up on the connections and that causes this in some cases too.
