Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

WD52825 52" DLP Diamond 120GB 2006

The lamp light was on and got no picture. I removed the lamp and it looked fine. The tv also had the check status button on. We have no manual for the tv to refer to. I took the lamp to a repair center and he said the lamp was fine. I replaced the lamp but the lamp light still lites up and there is not a picture. We have not used this tv much in the past 2 yrs and are really upset at having paid $2799.00 for the tv and to have a problem this soon. Please help, thanks Linda

Press the device and menu buttons both in together for 5 seconds on the front control panel then release to see if the LED will blink a two digit error code. Then let me know what that code is. Please respond to this same post.

Mitsu hc3000 problem "red-green status light blinking and no input"

Heres what the manual says about REd / green lights

Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and contact your dealer

And also this:

Check that the lens cap is removed.
It may take about one minute for the lamp to light up.
The lamp fails to light up on rare occasions. In such a case, wait for a few minutes
and then try again.
If the projector was turned off before the lamp was cooled down suf? ciently last time,
the fan may start rotating and the POWER button may not work after the power cord
is plugged. After the fan stops rotating, press the POWER button to turn back on the
POWER indicator.
Check that the intake vent is clean.
Set SCART INPUT in the FEATURE menu to OFF. (See page 25.)
Check that the lamp cover is closed. (See page 33.)
Check that the cables connected to the external devices are not broken.
When an extension cable is being used, replace it with the supplied cable for check. When
images are displayed correctly, add an RGB signal ampli? er to the extension cable.
Check the operation manual of the video device for its connection.

Status Light Problem

Is the status light yellow or red? If it is yellow, then check the dust filter cover. That cover might be off or not secure. If the status light is red and blinking, then try unplugging the TV for a minute. If the error doesn't resolve the TV needs service. If it is out of warranty, you might want to open up the set and look for any obvious problems on the circuit boards (scorch marks, soot, bulging or leaking capacitors (look like cylinders on tripods)).

I hope this helps.

WD-62525, continous amber lamp light. No picture. Lamp is good.


Make sure u replace the lamp cover as the safety switch need to be closed to make the set work. If new lamp did not repair your problem , then it may well be the Ballast Board, Sometimes call the Lamp Driver.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525. This morning my TV would not turn on so I pressed the rest button. After the Timer light stopped blinking I pressed power. I could hear the fans start than a somewhat loud...

the status light blinking red means a fan (the unit hs 4 of them) has failed. you need to determine which one. use the self diagnostic function:
Error Code Operational Check
The TV must be in “Shut Down” and not manually switched Off, to perform the Error Code Operational
Check. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to “12” No Error.
Press the front panel “DEVICE” and “MENU” buttons at the same time, and hold for 5 seconds to
activate the Error Code Operational Check. The LED will then flash denoting a two digit Code.
Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.
• The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
Example: If the Error Code is “32”, the LED will flash three times, pause, and then flash two times.
• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.

and read the code.
35= Chassis Fan failure
36 =Exhaust (Back Cover) or Lamp Ballast Fan failure
37= Engine (DMD or Lamp) Fan failure

TV was working earlier, today came home no green power light no nothing

I looked up the manual online - after you replace the bulb, you need to reset the bulb life timer. Using the TV remote push the menu button, SETUP menu, select the lamp reminder option to reset the hours to zero. That might help the status indicators.

TV will not turn on.

This is usually caused by 1 of 2 things.

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.
