Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

3 Answers

I just bought a WD 52525 today used. When i looked at it the tv was great and the picture looked fine, so i bought it. Lived about 40 miles from them and had tied a ratchet strap to hold it down so i could make it home. But now when i try to use my dtv, dvd player the picture has waves in it. But when the menu and device menu come up, they look perfectly fine. Could something have shaken loose?

    It was mid to have 50s. Not sure wind chill. I was driving between 65 and 80 for 40 miles. I did have a thick green blanket over it so i didnt scratch the tv with tie down. I also noticed that i had put the tie down to tight and on the sides the outer screen was coming off, but it snapped right back into place

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    absolutely never tilted or unlevel. I made sure not to let that happen. I sold my 60 inch dlp over the weekend and i drove that one 20 miles with no problem. Im gonna turn it back on and let it play

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    OK, ill leave it on tonight and check in the morning. Ill update you. I really appreciate this help. its a horrible feeling making it home, setting it up, and then finding out that you may have broke it in transport or it went bad on me. I just couldnt understand cause while i was there the picture was great, i was impressed. Have a good evening and Ill check back with you in the morning.

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    I forgot to tell you that the sound isnt working either... I know it has to be something simple, cause it worked fine;;l have left it on for the night and heading to bed.

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    sound doesnt work either

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    well its 8am here and it still has the wavy lines, any ideas?

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    This tv worked fine when i picked it up, im just convinced it is something that might have moved inside the tv or got changed around, maybe from the ratchet strap or just from great houston roads. The sound is also no working either. One other thing, i noticed on the way home, that the outer screen had come loose on the sides, NOT THE TOP AND BOTTOM. i didnt think much of it, cause it had little snap ins, that i pushed back in when i got home, and they went into place easily by using my little finger.

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    Last night i tried my blue ray dvd player, and both of my DTV converters. I dont have cable.lol
    So i tried three different devices, and used each of the two antenna inputs, as well as all three inputs. Still resulted same problem. Also using different cable to it each time. I did notice that when i press the format button, it shows 480i in stretch, standard and narrow. I didnt understand why it was saying 480i when its a 1080 tv

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    I found out that the owner i bought it from yesterday said when i was there it was hooked up to satellite, dont know if that makes a difference. Also, i was actually only using AV cables last night, i just grabbed an HDMI cable today to try that, as i also found out that the guy had his satellite hooked up using the HDMI cable.

    Also again, remember the menu will come up on the whole screen with no problem at all.

  • houstonatvpa Dec 29, 2010

    I actually was only using the av cables last night as i didnt have an HDMI cord. I grabbed one today to try. When i talked to the seller, he said he had his satellite hooked up by the HDMI, cord. I also wanted to add, that when i turn the tv on, it takes about 20-30 seconds before it shows anything on the screen. also i think i said this before, but not positive, but when the menu comes up on the big screen, it comes up perfectly with no screen issues like it does with the tv. I have actually today just removed the metal box out of the back of the tv. Well, its not removed, but slid out enough that i could hopefully check this capacitor issue. HEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPP

YES absolutely, these TV's well, any, TV, and especially Big screen units over 30" or so.must be transported very very very, delicately, that's why they come in those polystyrene lined boxes, as it indeed doesn't take much to completely ruin a set by incorrectly packing and transporting.
Just flexing. or twisting the internal boards or chassis can and will cause all sorts of problems.
However what you describe, doesn't really characterise, "the picture has waves in it" (sic) any type of fault like that. but it would still pay to give the unit the "Once Over' checking all clips and connections. Then go through the setup procedures all again and see how you go.
To assist you i have given you a link below so you can download your service and repair manual. simply follow through the troubleshooting steps and i am sure you will be able to identify the problem.

Hi.

Before jumping to conclusions about something moving inside TV you need to test the TV using different devices and cables. Something moving inside the TV usually cause TV not starting. According to your description, at most you may have a broken solder joint in terminal board (the one with connectors),

About people asking you driving speed and agreeing immediately with transport damage, remember that Fixya is open to answers to almost everybody.

From your description it looks like you tested only using a DVD player. The DVD player may be using PAL/NTSC settings that are different from TV (this gives wavy lines). Have a look at player settings. If player does not play both PAL/NTSC, check that TV and player have same settings. This is written in manuals or at the back of the devices.

If the player you use is HD, then the signal may not be supported by the TV, try at lower definition.

Test using different devices and cables. Test also using the TV internal tuner. If the TV has sound using internal tuner, then sound is OK and the problem is the audio cable to DVD or the connectors at the back of TV.

Regards.

Ginko.

    Hi.

    When you tested at seller place you were not using the same DVD or BRD unit. By the way, if the TV shows wavy lines when connecting the antenna to the TV built in tuner, then the TV is faulty. Ensure that you have tested connecting only antenna. If there is no raster, then the TV is defective.

    Also test the TV using AV cables, not HDMI. If you do not have cables at home, get them, AV cables are worth only a couple of $$ and are necessary for testing (signal is analog and LD with AV cables).

    If you get wavy lines under all conditions, then it is usually either input board (terminal pcb) or formatting board. To be more specific I would need to know the precise outcome of the simple tests proposed above. What happens with only aerial? do you get lines, raster or static? If there is static, can you tune channels?
    What happens using DVD with AV cables (red, white(sound) and yellow(video)?

    Additonally. Ensure that the TV is NTSC if in US, PAL is for Europe market. PAL TVs in US will have wavy lines, same for NTSC TVs used in Eu.


    Regards.

    I would let it play for a while, it might even out. Just one question? Did you ever tilt it, or get it un-level at any point?

  • JOHN BABA Dec 29, 2010

    Once it settles, the fluid in it will stabilize. Probly low of fluid. Just give it a little time to settle down, I think you will be OK.

  • JOHN BABA Dec 29, 2010

Green horizontal lines on screen no picture


The green CRT's (color picutre tube or color wheel, or ballast) will need to be tested for replacement.
It is quite common with these tv's

You will need an ohmmeter and or voltmeter and test each component for currency and accuracy

WD-52525 screen is jumping all around with wavy horizontal lines etc.


Good Day;

Keep talking to the factory, it is their product. Best Buy won't replace unless it is deemed not repairable and/or terms of the contract. You purchased the extra warranty because you most have felt that the TV might break down. Well, it did, now use the contract to repair your TV.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
