Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

WD-52525 Shuts off, shows red lamp light even after replacing lamp

I turned on the TV, it strobed lots of colors at me but the menus and stuff were reduced to dancing monochromatic icons. Basically.. everything looked totally jacked with no video showing up and then it shut off leaving the red lamp light on. I thought it was finally time to replace the lamp, so I installed the new one that I bought over a year ago. No change. After resetting the system and unplugging and everything I could think of, if it even came on at all, it would flicker and shut off again. Mitsubishi won't help. They only warranty the lamps for 30 days (wish I had known a year ago). I got a Bravia in the meantime while I research this problem and try to get it repaired.. Any insight would be appreciated. mitsubishi wd62526

    My TV does the same thing had lamp replaced and it still foes it a guy at a tv repair shop said that it was the ballast power supply and I'm going to try that first because i would hate to have wasted 3000 for a tv and not be able to use it so i can understand the frustration.

Maybe your problem is in the power supply circuit of your tv,but then try to replace the flyback first maybe there is no high voltage coming out on the cap.

check the 2 3300 mf/ 10 volt capacitors on power supply board.
visible examination of these caps will often show the top of the capacitor bubbled up.

Turn on the set and let it shut down. push in the Menu and Device (or input, I don't have a schematic in front of me) buttons on the front of the set at the same time and hold until the green light starts flashing. Then release. There will be two different sets of flashes, such as, 3 and 6. The code 12 means the set is opperating fine. The other codes will tell you what part of the set needs repaired. Also, remove the bulb and check the ballast connection to the bulb. I find the connection for the bulb bent over when a customer replaces the lamp sometimes. Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
