    im not getting any power on my d52w20 any suggestions

  • goldenskyz Jul 15, 2008

    Same problem! When the power button is pressed there is a click (relay maybe?) and the LED will come on for about ten seconds and then shuts off. Pressing the button again yields same results with or without unplugging/replugging first. Superficial investigation seems to indicate my TV is effed up (and most likely a power supply issue.) Good luck!

    I took it in for repairs, and the tech found multiple loose solder connections. $140.00

    I took it in or repairs, and the tech said there were multiple loose solder connections. The repair was 150. I picked it up took it home, and it's doing the same thing. The staff at this repair shop are very professional, and I think the problem will be resolved after I take it back.

When i plug in my tv the screen stays black and wont come on

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
Your Mittsubishi has a system the will cause the green light to blink for 70 seconds when first plugged in, if the green light never stops blinking it is either a power supply issue or a stuck keyboard button.
So do the test and reset it to see if the light stops blinking or not.

If I have helped you with your issue
If you have more questions you can still respond
I will reply asap

If you see absolutely nothing on the screen then you may have a problem with the Lamp unit. If you can see around the back of the TV look to see if there is a vented opening with a noise of a fan and a rather bright light. If you see there is no light then try a reset (hold power button for at least 10 seconds). Turn the TV back on and the green LED should flash for a bit. If you still have no picture or video of any type (completely black screen) and have sound only you probably have a bad lamp. These lamps are around $125 or so and can be bought on Amazon or other sites that sell these parts. It's fairly simple to replace but make sure that the tv is unplugged and securely re-install the access door. Hope this helped.

Green Screen, No Sound, Shuts off after 10 seconds

Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

No picture or sound mitsubishi 62525

Capacitor failure is the most likely scenario the FMT ans Signal PWB would cause the picture interference and the power pwb would cause the lamp light to turn red and give a 34 code when the device/ input and menu buttons are pressed in together and held for five seconds. That chassis has issues with every board in the chassis having failed capacitors you can get repair kits for the V26 chassis at the follwing link that come with instructions. Your model is the V26 chassis. Heres the link.

Tv screen and sound are lost for about 10 seconds.

Can you give me the model number? If this is a projection monitor, it sounds like the ballast for the lamp is dying. Not fatal, but probably in the range of $200 to fix at the local service depot.

Powers on shuts off after 10 seconds- red/green flash

its probably the bulb. if the red and gren lights are flashing simultaneously, than that means the bulb is burnt amd you need to order a new one and replace it.

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
