Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Tv won't stay on

My tv won't stay on. it never did. i started having problems with it the week after the warranty expired. That's what i get for buying the one set that was on display. Best Buy knocked a grand off the price so i thought it was a good deal. It would occasionally go out, but not all that often. It was right in the middle of football season and didn't want my new and only big-screen in the shop because i'd miss the games in high-def. I realized that if when i plugged in the set, when the screen message at the bottom asked if i had just replaced the lamp. if i pressed "yes" the set would not turn off. So i just continued to to that everytime. But now, the set won't work at all. All i get is a constant red light at the bottom. i had the lamp replaced once already at the tune of $400. should i just chalk this up as a loss and just get a new set. Of course because the warranty had just expired Best Buy was of no assistance, even though there records indicate that i had problems with this tv from day one. I don't know what to do, and football season is about to start and i don't have a big screen to watch it on. I've been reading these complaints. It seems as if alot of people have been having problems with this particular model(WD-52525 52"). you would think Mitsubishi would have recalled it. But i guess from their standpoint that wouldn't be cost-efeective because they would have to take back alot of sets. My best friend bought a mitsubishi 60 inch and fortunately for him hasn't experienced any problems at all.

If its two weeks old why are you here? Take it back to point of purchase and either have it fixed or replaced or get a refund.....

From the brand you likely are in UK but here all sets come with some kind of warranty==the problem sounds like a power supply issue but if you have a warranty and open the set it will void that warranty.

My vizio 32" tv won't turn on, only the red led light does. My warranty expired one week before the tv stopped working. can you please help me


I would try real hard to get it repair under warranty, they may bend the rule sinc it is only one week over warranty. Right now the 5vdc standby power supply is working. Typical repair for LCD TV is $200 and up plus parts. If they refuse, I would not buy another VIZIO.

Remote control key sequences.


That sounds like something that would be in a service manual. Now that your tv warranty is expired, you can probably buy the service manual off samsungparts.com. I wouldn't have suggested that if your tv was in warranty, because that procedure would be in the service menu, which only Samsung trained technicians have access to when the product is in warranty. Just remember, if you go in the service menu and mess things up and can't fix it, you would probably need service for the tv.
