Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
Lamp indicator light turned red - replaced lamp and light turned red again. Got another lamp thinking maybe the new lamp was a defect. However, after receiving yet another lamp I am still getting the lamp indicator light red. No picture, sound, nothing. T.V. starts up and then within 10-15 seconds the lamp indicator light turns red again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have ordered a new lamp and replaced the lamp but the red light stills stays
on.......the t.v. will try to work for 10 12 sec and then the red light comes on.....and by trying to work I mean there is no red light......but there is never
any kind of picture........I have replaced the lamp before and had no problem....
Do you know what might be wrong
Fixityrsel is wrong.
1 The "Airflow message"is just a bad connection and very easily solved.Mitsubishi has a service bulletin out and will cover the repair for free. Your set may not even have the defective connectors.
Your set was manufactured in 2004..Call any authorized Mitsubishi
Capacitors are very easy to find! Any (105 degree) PC mount 3300uf@ 16VDC will work fine..and not bulge again..Higher Working voltage than the stock 10 VDC is what caused the problem with the caps.
Mouser electronic is one of hundreds of suppliers for those caps
Order online if you know for sure they are bad in your set.

We're under a service plan and had the guy out today. Same symptoms. He replaced the lamp and it didn't work and then called Mitsubishi. They said it is probably a very common capacitor problem on the power supply board. If you open the back and take a look you are likely to see bulging caps. Parts C9A37 and C9A38. The caps are cheap if you can find them, but the parts are really hard to find right now so Best Buy is actually replacing these for people under service plans rather than fixing them. You probably ignored the "warning signs" like we did and didn't think much of it when the TV said there was something blocking the air flow and the lamp was going to shut off. We now know this is a sign that the caps are getting too hot and need to shut down to cool off... Good luck! BTW, our guy said the repair will run you about $200 if you can't do it yourself.
