Question about Mitsubishi WD-62525 62" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I endured months of a slight green/blue wave across the screen-noticeable in darker scenes. Then one morning I awoke to an intermittent crackling, static and "boom" sounds. The tv has not work at all, since.

The wave was caused by the fact that the image was badly processed in the processor.  The main cause for that is a bad power source that delivers an unstable tension to the processor .
On the other hand the noises you heard are always generated by the power source: the crackling and the static were generated by the transformers being severely overstressed and the booms by the exploding electrolytic capacitors.
What happened: the capacitors have aged and the power source has become unstable (generating the wave you saw); the problem got worse till one capacitor finally failed; unfortunately the source was too weakened to limit the failure and protect itself so the failure snowballed.
Result  = the power source failed the big way and fried the entire tv in the process. The tv is fixable, but i seriously doubt it's worth the money you need to put in it to fix it.
Time for a new one.

Check its main power regulator section circuit. Replace all the electrolytic capacitors there. This is a power supply fault.

Short crackle sound emits from speaker during scene changes


Actually, it is a failing component. Quick scene changes often place demands on the power supply. I would guess that the noise is more prevelant when the scenes change from darker ones to lighter ones. Since this set is so new, request a warranty exchange. This set needs to be serviced. Return it to the place of purchase and ask for a replacement. Usually if the set is less than 30 days old, they just exchange it for you.

Horizontal blue lines with a slight blue wash in the screen


Hi,
Its because of Over Voltage of Screen (G2) to Blue CRT.
Take off front lower cover (speaker grill) and unscrew board. There you will need to find Focus Block mounted having 6 control knobs. 3 knobs are for Focus control and 3 are for Screen volts control. Find Blue Screen control knob and turn is Counter Click Wise slightly until bluish shade disappear on screen including few blue horizontal lines.
If you select AV input to adjust that will be fine as you do not need to wait for dark-scene.

Red,green and blue lines across screen


I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.

Curved blue lines on screen.


You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

Green Tint on half of the screen


This is most likely a defect in the optical unit (about $1500.00 part). If out of warranty probably will just have to live with it. Those op units are also hard to get.
