Check to make sure the lamp is in correctly and that you've closed everything up properly. If you don't close the cover, the sensors will tell the computer in the TV that the door is open and won't let the TV turn on.

Other than that, could be a bad lamp or bad ballast.

Always buy OEM lamps, or better-than-oem equivalents! Philips lighting is the best lamp manufacturer out there for these TVs. They invented the thing!

Buy from Authorized distributors, and don't buy the "cheap" stuff. savnig 20 bucks will cost you more in the long run--believe me!

hint: the two pins the lamp plugs onto go directly to the ballast which is really a power supply for the lamp.

not clear from all you have said if ballast is the problem===these sets had a lot of issues; anything, even too much dust on the fans inside will shut it down...........

The lamp light is blinking orange and we just replaced the lamp! on model WD-52531

You may have not plugged the lamp in fully or have not put the lamp door back properly. If you have done this properly and have the blinking problem then you are likely to have a bad ballast. This ballast supplies the voltage to light up the lamp. But first look on the front of the set for a small push button that says "system restore/reset". Use a ball point pen to press.

Wd-52531 color is being overpowered by green and yellow

Hi, You are most likely seeing the effect of a defective optical engine. This is the part that processes and projects the picture onto the front screen. Physical anomolies can cause random blobs of colors and a distinct appearance of haze in the center of the pic. The only fix is to replace the engine, usually around $800 to $1000. THX

Same problem with Mits WD-52531

The first thing to try is to reclose the access door to the lamp area. There are interlocks there that may be marginally connected. Try to reclose all access doors and report the results here.
