Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Mitsubishi 52525...I got advice from a lady guru after getting error code 34, lamp did not start. I got a new lamp. So I turned the tv on, it stayed on for 2 minutes, fans running but no screen action. Then shut down and gave me error code 34. FYI, I got this tv in parts and put it together. This is as close as I have come. Help ??

    Could it possibly be the ballast ???

  • Jay Keating Sep 03, 2010

    No, nothing happens...this is what was happening prior to the lady guru advising me to replace the lamp. I tried to let her know that the previous lamp looked new. So I want to make sure I do not spend money for someting I don't need. I did check the covers and connections. Everything is fine. Just will not light up.

    Hey, Thanks. That is what I wanted to hear. Have you heard of Discountmerchants.com ? They have slightly used ballasts for $ 69.99

  • Jay Keating Sep 03, 2010

    Thanks !

  • Jay Keating Sep 03, 2010

    Yes, I know . But I really don't want to spend alot of $$. This is more of a project than a need. I do thank you for your help. I had no intention of voting you down. I don't know how this fixya thing works.

Sounds like what you got here is a lmap ballast issue, The ballast transformer is not lighting the lamp thus causing this to code on you.

Part can be found HERE

Kinda expensive to replace and would explain why the other bulb was new or looked new. People assume its the bulb in fact the most common issues with this tv was the ballast.

Good luck

Make sure that you have closed the lamp cover properly. The lamp has two doors, inner and outer covers. The inner door has a sensor that shuts down the tv if the lamp reaches a high temp and/or lamp door is not closed.

    Yes. That is another possibility. Is the lamp coming in before the set turns off?

    Buying used components may not be such a good idea unless you have no other choice. The ballast is one of the most hard working parts of a RPTv (it supplies around 400 volts to the lamp) so I do not recommend it. But considering the fact that this is a ratherold model it may be your only option.

I replace the bulb and I'm getting a blinking error code 3 4. How do I fix? Mitsubishi WD-52525


That code can often be caused by failed capacitors on the power board which will cause the 34 error for lamp abnormality. The V26 Power repair kit at www.tvrepairworld.com may fix that issue. The kit contains the replacement capacitors and has the CD with instructions.

Its much more likely that your getting a 34 error which is a lamp abnormality vaused by defective capacitors on the power board. You can get the V26 DLP power PWB repair kit at the following link that should repair the issue. Chances are your old lamp is still good.

usually with that model when you get a 34 eror code for lamp abnormality, its directly related to the capacitors on the Power Pwb. You can get the V26 Power PWB repair kit at the following link which repairs that issue. It contains the replacement High temp capacitors with the board location numbers and PWB identification as well as the service manual on CD. Heres the link its under their repair kit ctegory.

RE: Mitsubishi 52525 still green light


Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.


Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Tv keeps turning off?


cutta, you will most often hear a click on boot then the fans start up and lamp will then fire. The picture will start to show up....at what point does it shut off? and do you hear a click when the tv is turning off? Is it the complete tv shutting down, fans and everything that turns off? Do you see any lights on the the front panel "POWER", "STATUS" or "LAMP", what are they doing? If you see a Power, Status or Lamp light after it shuts off the below are what they mean if there is an issue. POWER - STATUS - LAMP - CONDITION/ISSUE: Off - Yellow - Off - Temp. high/dirty filter/excess room temp Off - Off - Yellow - 4000 hrs. Lamp usage warning Off - Off - Blink Yellow - Lamp Cover open Off - Blink Yellow - Off - Air Filter Cover open Off - Off - Red - Lamp failure (failed to turn On or broken) Off - Blink Red - Off - Fan Has Stopped Off - Red - Off - Circuit failure (short) or DVI cable disconnected If you want to check for the last "Error Code", after you first turn the TV on, by pressing the front panel ?DEVICE? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time and holding them for 5 seconds, it activates the Error Code Mode. The ?Power LED Light? blinks/flashes (1/2 sec delay) and then flashes again denoting a two digit Error Code indicating no problem or an error has occured since the last Initalization. i.e. "Power light" blinks 3 times (1/2 second delay) and then blinks 4 times then 1 sec delay and repeats a few times. This would mean "Error 34 - Lamp abnormality". See below for error codes..... Error Code - Description or issue 12 - No Error detected, check Power Supply 32 - Lamp Cover is open 33 - Air Filter Cover is open 34 - Lamp abnormality 36 - Light Engine (DMD or LAMP Fan stopped) 37 - Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped 38 - Lamp temperature high 39 - DMD temperature high 41 - Short is detected 44 - DVI cable between FMT & Engine disconnected. Sorry for the long answer but it was an open ended question.
