Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
Return from 30 day vacation, tv picture&sound did not come on. Lamp statu was red; Replaced lamp with new one provided by Mitsubishi - no change i.e., no picture no sound. Disconncedted, reset no help...What else beside a bad lamp would cause a red lamp status? Haven't been able to find a qualified technican in the San Antonio, Tx area.... Tony
I RECENTLY HAD A LAMP ISSUE THAT MAY ASSIST. I HAVE A MITSUBISHI WD-52525 52" DLP. I HAVE OWNED THE UNIT JUST OVE THREE YEARS. THE UNIT INDICATED THAT THE LAMP NEEDED TO BE REPLACED WHEN THE UNIT WAS TURNED ON. I ORDERED A LAMP AND BEFORE IT CAME IN THE UNIT QUIT WORKING. I REPLACED THE LAMP AND WHEN I POWERED UP THE UNIT I GOT A STEADY YELLOW INDICATION AND THEN A SOLID RED. MITSUBISHI TECH ADVICE STATED THAT I MAY HAVE BEEN SHIPPED A BAD REPLACEMENT LAMP. I SENT THE LAMP BACK AND ANOTHER WAS SENT TO ME. THAT LAMP ALSO GAVE THE SAME RESULTS. I CALLED CHUCKS ELECTRONIC REPAIR AND A VERY KNOWLEDGABLE TECHNICIAN RESPONDED TO MY HOME. IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THE POWER SUPPLY BOARD WAS BAD AND THAT THE LAMP NEVER NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. I SPOKE WITH REPRESENTATIVES AT MITSUBISHI SEVERAL TIMES AND THIS WAS NEVER EXPLAINED TO BE A POSSIBITLY. THE TECHS AT MITUSBISHI BASICALLY JUST READ FROM THE OWNER MANUEL AND HAD NO IDEA WHAT THEY WERE DOING.

After buying two lamps (at a cost of $500.00) we had to call the Mitsubishi service man. He came out at a cost of $150.00 (his appearance fee), and told us right away (after taking out the lamp that we had newly installed) that the socket was smushed/smashed. He then went opened the set from the back and tooled around, and unsmushed/unsmashed the socket. We were so happy. On installing a lamp we all must shine a flashlight into the compartment so that we can see what this lamp is going to connect to. Just like a lightbulb, there is a socket on the left inside of the compartment that the lamp must plug into. From our dark vantage point we could not see this, and with the newly manufactured lamps, which are not the same configuration as the old, it is a very tight fit and this connection socket is vital -- or the set will not work. I wish they would have told us this. That lesson taught to us by the Mitsubishi service person cost us an additional $100. Well anyway, we are sharing it with you. Good luck. Maryland

Do you know if it was the top or the bottom of the set that he took off. i have the same problem, and i know that it is the connection and probably the bulb as the bulb went out first but i see that the connection is pushed inand i have to dig it out but cant get to it from front of set.

We have the tv on a power strip. I turn off the power strip supplying power to tv wait 30 seconds then turn power back on power strip. tv flashes green for 20 seconds more, then works ok.

The buttons are menu and device at the same time for 5 sec, then the first set of flashing is digit one of the error code, then the second set of flashing is digit number 2. For example
flash.... flash flash...
would be error code 12
the code repeats itself 5 times and then the light goes off.

I have the same problem with my Mitz wd62525. I had a service guy take a look and the lamp is definitely not the issue. It could possibly be the lamp timer reset is not working properly. There is a button combination you have to enter on the front panel of the TV to do this (unfortunately I don't know what it is). If this doesn't work its probably a more technical wiring issue needing a service technician to resolve. Hope this helps. If you find the reset combo - please write back.
