Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Mitsubishi WD-52528 I have a WD52528 DLP 2.5 years old now. No problems until yesterday. When turned on the set there was sound but no picture. I had thought the lamp was out. After further inspection I could still hear the fan running and also noticed the lamp was lit as could be seen through the back of the cabinet. I unplugged the set and now everything seems to be fine? Any ideas? I get a sinking feeling about what the future might hold. Jeff

Will this also cure the timer light blinking issue? I just got this same model TV from a buddy for free. It won't show picture or sound. The fan kicks on momentarily, but the timer light blinks for a minute then stops.

That model has alot of issues with jamicon capacitors being bad. They are on every board of that model. I would suggest leaving it be, then if the problem gets worse. Then replace all jamicon capacitors at 1000uf on the entire chassis and your set will be fine. I would however suggest getting the service manual as they are involved getting apart, but a service center will charge an astronomical fee to service the set, and most do it at board replacement instead of component level repair. which is hundreds of dollars compared to a few dollars for new capacitors. Here is a link where you can get the proper afctory service manual if youd like one.

Mitsubishi wd 60735 dlp tv red lamp light


A common issue and it may be your problem is dust and dirt inside the unit---the set intakes air from the front and exhausts it out the rear==I have seen several of these sets where removing rear cover and taking stthe set outside and blowing it with a air compressor clears the issue.

Fans and other critical items that get clogged or coated with a moderate amount of dust will cause this issue.

Replaced lamp in my mitsubishi wd 60638 dlp but now I have a flickering picture


Sounds like a new lamp that is generic (not Mitsubishi) as the set does not know which lamp is in the set--works with one and not the other you have found your problem.

The picture quality on our WD 52528 is horrible - dark, blurry, and hard to see picture at all if not looking at the tv straight on.


Your satellit receiver should have the capability to hook to your TV either by using HDMI cable out from sat unit to HDMI in on TV. This sgould give you sound and audio, or it should have component output which is a series of three cables red, blue and green.The component cablesdon't provide audio so you have to use digital optical or composite cables for sound. Whos satellite box are you using?You should be able to press your menu and get into "system set up" and, there should be an option for HDTV. Go for the highest resoulution(1080 And a ratio of 16 x 9. You tv manual should tell you about screen set up. Let me know

I have a 2 year old Mitsubishi WD-73732 - 1080p 73" Medallion Series DLP HDTV - WD73732. I am getting blotches of color when there are large areas of blue color. Looks like irregular moving stains...


It will cost you probably in the area of $700.00 to replace the Light Engine. I don't think it would be a good idea to repair it. DLP sets have been out of production a few years now due to high failure rates of the light engines for all makes and models and the consumer cost for the lamp.

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.

New bulb/TV still shuts down


Its far more likely the result of the power pwb capacitors that have failed. As the 34 code will appear if the capacitors fail on the Power PWB. You can get the V26 DLP Power repair kit at the following link.with free instructions
