52" mitsubishi wd-52525 brightness problem

Help. bought the tv new a few years ago. it has done well except for the lamp replacement which is normal for these. 2 months ago we had red blotches on evryones skin tone and a local "quality electronics" came out as a representative for sears. they ordered and replaced the light engine and that took care of the red problems with the skin tones but now we have a problem with things that are white or light colored objects such as paper someone is holding or even skin tone in someone that is being filmed and have a light focused on them. it makes that object extremely bright no matter how you set your contrast ,brightness or any adjustment. i went thru the loops again and they came out after telling over the phone that is adjustable thru the remote. they were in the house for a total of 3 minutes and did nothing but ran the contrast from top to bottom and said that it meets factory specs and blasted out the door. has anyone ran into a similar problem and what was the resolve? I will be contacting sears and ask for a different service company. thanks for your time

That is the V26 chassis dlp. Which has been plauged with bad capacitors. I have serviced many mitsubishi DLPs and have found that there are 4 1000uf @16v capacitors on the FMT board that can give the video some problems they are C8F21, C8F22, C8F19, and C8F27. These chassis are a real bear to work on. I would recomend a service center that is authorized by mitsubishi do any repairs on that model. Mitsubishi has a list of authorized service centers on their website that you can look up by zipcode. If you need more help please let me know. I am very famillar with that chassis

I have a mitsubishi wd-52525 tv and just replaced the lamp but the picture does not look as bright as before. no settings have been changed.


Try "initializing" a "factory reset" power on the tv then on the remote "menu 1,2,3 enter". Start the reset to default and see if the new refreshed settings help.

Lamp failure in WD-52525


i actually own this tv myself... that striking you here will only occur when the lamp does not fire. as far as lamp life i have found that mitsubishi has the longest lasting bulbs from my experience. i would check to make sure the connector on the lamp is seated properly into the other connector in the tv. if you know your lamp is 100% i would look at replacing the lamp ballast. ive had this tv for a few yrs now and love it.

Just bought a Mitsubishi WD-52526. With Brightness, Color, Sharpness, Contrast, Everything Video turned all the way up the Screen is still very dim. Is this a lamp issue?


It could be. Do you know if the previous owner ever changed the bulb? If not you may have to replace it. The bulb usually costs around 160ish. I would try it and see if it helps the brightness.

Please buy Mitsubishi original lamp for TV safety.

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.

Mitsubishi WD-52525 52-inch DLP HDTV ywllow warning lamp light


that means your lamp it is getting to the end of its life.
sometimes even if the lamp still good the TV will send you that message because that timer is closed to 5000 hours

What you can do is open the lamp door, closed again and the tv will ask you if you replaced it the lamp, and just say yes and that sign will go away

or just simple replace the lamp. 915P020010

WD-52525 Shuts off, shows red lamp light even after replacing lamp


maybe your problem is in the power supply circuit of your tv,but then try to replace the flyback first maybe there is no high voltage coming out on the cap.

Problems with Mitsubishi WD-52525


When you replace these laps on these TV's they have an internal clock to countdown the lamp usage. After installing the new lamp the TV asked you if you replaced the lamp and you should answer yes. If not its going to ask again. First thing is go through the motion of replacing the lamp take the lamp out etc. then place it back in the set and turn it back on. Follow the on screen instructions and that should reset the lamp timer.
