Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Bad capacitors I have the blue flickering screen problem with my wd52525. I disassembled the electrical chassis and found 4 bad capacitors. I have ordered enough to replace all of the potential trouble capacitors because I don't want to have to do this again. After I replace the capacitors I will try to reassemble the tv but to tell the truth, I'm not real confident, lol. Is there a detailed description for putting this thing back together? If not, it may end up in the landfill!!! jeh

SOURCE: Bad Mits capacitors

if your going thru all this trouble, be sure to check the 4 capacitors on the DM board (1000mf/16volt), the 4 caps on the formatter board (1000MF/16volt) and the 2 caps on the power supply board (3300mf/10 volt) Mitsu recoomends changing the 1000mf caps to 680MF/16volt.
It is kind of a pain to change these.
good luck

Zig zagged and flickering screen


The surface mount capacitors in a module called the Hyper Board have gone bad. The repair is fairly extensive in that the board must be desolderd from the chassis and then taken apart and all the electrolytic capacitors must be changed. The task is time consuming and not for a do-it-yourselfer. The average repair cost would run around $250.00.

This is likely capacitors failing in your DM or FMT module. This model is know for the 1000uf caps going bad after 4 years or so. There are 4 on each board, plus 4 on the power supply that may go bad. You can tell by the bulging tops that are not flat. Two 3300uf caps go bad in the power supply regularly as well. I recommend getting a service center to send the whole signal block or chassis into Mitsubishi for rebuild to get it all taken care of. The dissassembly is very difficult and frustrating. If you have tons of time and determination you could repair yourself.

Sounds like the 1000uf capacitors on the FMT board need replacing. This is a common symptom with that chassis. There are three 1000uf caps that fail on that PC Board

There is a 5, 9 & 12 volt dc regulator on the chassis that could be causing this. Three legged transistors on small heat sinks. I f you look at the chassis from the rear of tv, is two boards.The one on the left has these reg. transistors. Usually the 9v regulator is bad and a 35ufd @ 50v capacitor near it is bad. From the tuner as ground check the third leg on the regulator for less than 9v dc.
