Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Mits WD 52525 format issue.

I cant seem to get the partial zoom to disappear as a format. The bottom half and the top half and both sides of the TV are cut off.....any suggestions? When I hit the format button all I get are 2 selections wide expand and standard...but when i change channels in the top right hand corner it always says HD partial zoom - I take it that this is the problem? Driving me crazy....anyone who can help will be much appreciated as Mits has not emailed me back with a solution as I have emailed them 3 times.

Re: Mits WD 52525 format issue.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Picture quality

Contact your local service rep as this sounds like a "not so easy fix' related to the main board or power supply (known issues with Mits boards, especially the capacitors). Cleaning, resetting, re-configuring will not likely make any difference. Verify the problem occurs across all input modes (such as DVD, etc). before taking any service actions.

Going nuts!!

If you are using Dish Network, while in SAT mode, hit the star key on the remote (also labled FORMAT). It will start scrolling through certain modes: zoom, partial zoom, normal, stretch... etc)
