Re: mits wd52525 bulb replacement
Good Day Cawhite;
You replaced lamp and still get flashing light.
1. TV's 'ballst may be bad.
2. If lamp comes on for 2-3 seconds, the problem will most likely be the caps in the power supply. (to see lamp turn on you have to take off back or front (inner panel).
Hope this was helpful.
Good luck, Big Irish.

There are 3 different LEDs on the front of this televison. The TIMER will blink green. The STATUS will blink orange and the LAMP will flash red or orange depending on if there is a failure or if the lamp timer is showing over 5000 hours.
If I answer your question directly and the status is blinking a steady orange light, then you have left the side filter cover or the front lamp cover off or they are loose.
Also holding the menu and device buttons together until the timer light blinks will reveal a code that will help in diagnosing your problem. Goodluck.
If you have a voltage meter you can pull the bulb out and check for continuity by placing the probes on the power plugs of the bulb. If you have continuity the bulb should be good, and it may be the lamp ballast.
1: You have a lot of dust in the vents so the bulb gets too hot. You might see a flashing red temperature light on the front status button. Clean the vents to the light housing and see if that solves the problem. You might also want to physically disconnect the power from the TV for about 30 seconds to allow it to reset if it is just a random problem.
2: Your light is about to go out. If you have had the tv for a few years, it is possibly time to replace the light bulb. You can usually tell this because the light will be dimmer than normal and possibly all 3 indicator lights will be blinking on the status button on the front.
Bad capacitors on the FMT there are 3 1000uf 16v capacitors that will cause that symptom. Your onscreen menu is unaffected right? If you need more info or a link to the service manual for thet model you can get the service manual at this link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
first did you getthe lamp from miths and if notyou could have bought a bad lamp. you need to get a lamp form mits if you did not buy from them. if you did buy from mits have them replace the lamp it has a 90 day warranty. try hitting the menu and device / input buttons for 5 sec and repost the blink code. it is a 2 digits blink code. (ex. 23 or 33 or 26 like that)
