Can't learn remote buttons in NetCommand

We've owned a WD-52525 for a little over three years now. I originally setup NetCommand when we got it and while the learning curve was steep, I managed to get everything working. Last year, when we got the bulb changed, my NetCommand setup was lost, so I had to re-do everything. I had enough problems that I only did as much as I could find time for, and lived with the few issues I still had.

A couple days ago, we finally decided to try out digital cable from our cable company. After trying two CableCards, neither worked. (One refused to connect back to the office and the other the TV claimed was invalid.) I punted and opted for the cable box.

Since my cables had gotten to be quite a mess, and since I had enough lingering problems from my haphazard re-programming last year, I decided to re-wire everything and re-program NetCommand from scratch.

Sadly, though, although I can add devices in NetCommand, I cannot get it to learn any of the commands from the other remotes! Not a single command on any of the remotes. I remember doing this before, and can't figure out why it won't work. Repeatedly pressing the button while the command label flashes yellow does nothing, and it eventually times out and stops flashing. Repeating this, trying every angle and distance from the TV I can think, has no effect. I can tell the remote's working, as I have to cover up the desired device to stop it from acting on the remote's commands, even from steep angles. The batteries on the other remotes are fresh.

Is there a known issue that causes this? Am I missing something obvious?

I had the same problem. You need to clean the mirror and lens. The learn remote apparently uses the same mirror. Mine would not learn any new commands. After cleaning the mirrors and lens inside the TV, the picture improvement was incredible and the learn function works fine. The dust builds up gradually on the mirrors so you don't notice the difference in the picture as it degrades.

How do I unlock a WD-52525 Mitsubishi I have a Rca universal remote I dont know the password


You must use the factory remote. Mutlibrand will not work for this option. No matter the universal remote, you need the original. No other way to do this.

1. Press MENU on original remote only
2. Then press 2,4,7, and 0
3. Select "initialize" and then 'ENTer"

This will full restore to factory original settings. but you need the original Mitsubishi remote.

    The remote operates all the units except for the TV's vol, channe


    There are 2 possibilities: either you have a stuck front panel button, or the remote sensor is bad.

    You can eliminate the button issue by removing the front speaker grill and access panel and disconnecting the button assy wiring harness.

    There is a plug/socket connection there that you can easily disconnect. If after disconnecting the control panel, you still have no remote, its the sensor. Its located behind the screen assy mounted behind the CRTs. You will have to remove the screen assy to get to this.

    If you're not up for this, a service company will charge you $300 or so to replace the sensor for you.

    Blinking Green Light on Mitsubishi DLP 52525


    The 52525 is definitely going to either:

    1. have the caps on the FMT/DM board replaced (not something I'd recommend you do yourself)

    2. have the electrical chassis rebuilt (as sometimes, you can replace the caps and still have the problem).


    wait time: 4-8 weeks
    cost to rebuild: $400-$500
    cost for labor: $200-$400

    You will need to reset the Netcommand and tuner settings in the set. The little indented button in the front of the set needs to be pushed in (when the set is off). The front light will blink for about a minute or minute and a half. Then, reprogram the Netcommand settings. This should solve your problem. If you need more information, then, reply to this post and I will respond.

    Mitsubishi WD 52525 & PS 3


    First make sure your hdmi cable is connected from the PS3 to the TV. Then go to netcommand, review, and make sure "monlink" is checked, click next, and finish. Select "monlink" from your device manager and turn on your PS3. If the screen is blue, go to the next step. Connect the PS3 via regular a/v cables to the front panel "input-3". Create a net-command device for input-3 as well. Switch to the input-3 device you created and turn on your PS3. Choose display settings, and change the settings to HDMI. Then click change. You'll have 30 seconds to hit device manager, change the device to "monlink", and let the PS3 unit know the setting has worked. From there you can configure. Good luck!
