Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
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.
