Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blue Screen w/Flashing light in the middle echoing out to edge

I've replaced the lamp after 2 years, 1 year into this bulb. Also, had mother board go out about 2 years ago, had repaired at $700. Most recent problem started out w/satellite picture starting to pixelate out, then to blue screen only. Antennae input still worked and DVD, the next day, both of those went to blue screen only w/light in middle, etc....

Is it possible this is a simple problem? If not, is there a market to sell the tv for parts?

Good Day, you all;

This TV has many problems......at least three boards and many parts on each PCB..... most places charge between $750.00 to $1,200.00 to repair. So, I will let you be the judge if it is worth it. Get an estimate from an authorized service center be fore making final decision.

If you can repair yourself I will be glad to give you the info.....it takes an experience tech about 3 hours to repair.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

If it happened gradually I would suspect the lamp--a photo posted here might help.

The other possible cause in a Optical light engine which might be very expensive to replace in this brand.

Hello, I have a Samsung HLP4663W 46 in. Rear Projection HDTV Television, and they lamp kept going out so I bought the proper lamp to replace it and it still would not show a picture. Should I pay to have...


Recheck the tv projection lamp installation?Recheck the lamp door latch,see if it is proper closed and tightly closed of the lamp door?Hear any clicking noises,when the tv projection lamp tries to ignite up.If hearing constance clicking?Mean the tv board that call the Ballast board it is also dead,this Ballast board only job are to ignite the tv projection lamp only.Ballast board must have be replaced.If the tv have a colors wheel is it dead or damage and broken require changing,u will hear major humming,motor or grinding sound noises and alot of times the tv pictures flashes multiples colors on the tv screen or the tv pictures will have a black&white flashes of a background of white light within the tv pictures background.Selling defective tvs almost impossible to sell it for a decent or a good priced or it at all.If this tv u have less than 5 years old,tv it is still have alot of it life ahead of it,tv tube picture screen panel,will last u atleast another 10 years and have to be 8 hours tv whatching every day to dies this faster or could be last to 15 years,if tv less hours of watching every day.Should get priced quotes from many tvs repair shops and get it fixed max prices about $400-$500 dollars.New tv same model and sized or difference models too will cost u like $1,200-$1,500 dollars.

Blue and 2 red lights flash in sequence for warm up but then blue light goes out, tv does not come on and red light for lamp stays on. Bulb looks good, Is there a way with multi meter that I can test and...


Depending on the bulb, you can do a continuity check, that's about it. The average bulb will last from 3-7 years depending on viewing habits. The sets are programmed with a "lifetimer" that you will reset once you replace the bulb. I'm not sure if it's based on resistance degredation across the filament or just time. Any way you look at it, unless there is a board issue as well; when you replace the lamp, you will have a Much Brighter and Sharper image!. As a cautionary warning, do not buy a Chinese Knock-off to save 50$ They have a high fail rate and only last a year or so. Stick with the MFG recommended lamp. Hope this helps

My Samsung DLP model HL-P6163W keeps turning on and off and now lights are flashing. We replaced the color wheel last year and about two years ago the lamp.

Place heat shielding around the lamp to prevent overheat; use cooling spray (freon) to cool any chips or, circuit boards near the lamp as you attempt to start the set check the lamp for the correct serial # voltage etc.

Blue screen only now on all inputs....


Good Day,

nniemeryer;

NO not simple problem. This dlp has so many problems that you have not experienced yet but you will. To repair this concern will be into the same $7-800.00 range again.
Not much of a market to sell this but can try local service shops/ or internet type places.
But let's not get too much in front of ourselves. I would call the manufacture and complain and try to get them to repair unit, tell them (they know) you know that TV is having a lot of problems and service bulletins written on this model. Here's their info:

Consumer Relations
Consumer Issues
Phone 7:00AM - 5:00PM PST ......(800)332-2119
Dealer or Servicer Referral(24HRS)..(800)332-2119
FAX (24HRS).........................(949)465-6147
FAX Document Retrieval System(24HRS).(800)332-2119
I hope this has been helpful,

big IRISH.
