The ballast for the bulb is the culprit. That is the circuit board directly wired to the bulb. You can get a replacement on line at:

how are you hooking it up.are you using hdmi on both ends? computer and tv? if you are using an aadapter then you will have to have additional audio cables, as the adapters dont carry the audio

Seems to be the inverter board that controls the bulbs! With the TV on if you shine a torch at the screen can you see a faint picture? If so it is the inverter board that needs replacing!

Yes, there are three. The chassis fan, the exhaust fan and the fan for DMD.
The chassis fan is going to be mounted behind an intake air filter on the right side of the cabinet from the rear view. I am providing you the service manual.

i unplugged the tv , turned the lamp switch to off . I left it unplugged for a few hours . I then plugged the tv back in , hit the reset button , located on the front bottom left . I waited for the timer light to stop blinking , then turned the lamp switch to the on position . I turned the power on to the tv . i heard the fan kick on , this time there was not a dragging sound . the screen lit up and i have not had a problem since yesterday . i think that the problem started because the tv had been left on for too long , I know that what i have done is only a temperary fix . but as long as I dont forget to turn the tv off , i should not have a problem

We contacted Mitsu today in Irvine. Sounds to us like they're aware of a widespread problem with this model. Told us to get a Mitsu Tech to diagnose and fax to them the outcome and someone would contact us back within two days. Seems like so many are having the same problem and all about 2.5 to 3 yrs. old. I paid $3,500.00 for mine. I'm not going down without a fight with Mitsubishi. Thought they were #1 in the Big Screen world. CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR RECALL BY Mitsu should be in order....They know there is a problem with the power supply module.

Dead pixels can not be repaired.
The model# WD-52525 you provided is for a DLP TV.
If you are seeing white dots on the screen it is due to a bad DMD chip or light engine. Unfortunately, it is not a cheap fix.

Good luck

error code 37 is either the dmd fan or the lamp fan. you can see the dmd fan with the cover off. you cannot set the lamp fan as it is under the light engine. I guess the easiest thing to do is get a lamp fan 299P282010 and a dmd fan 299P283010 and change them both.

Hi Terrence
Probably bad connections in the lamp base.
Heat damaged or corroded or Over temperature sensor tripped.
When it goes out next, Bump it or Tap it to see if its mechanical contact problem. That will help diagnose where the problem is
Good Luck

no you cannot substitute a 680uf 16v 105c in place of a 1000uf
if you want to put a better capacitor in place of the old 1000uf 16v 105c , then use a 1000uf 25v or 35v 105c
the voltage rating will allow the cap to better handle the circuit

The lamp housing has some screws you need to loosen, did you do that?
