Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I turned on the TV, it strobed lots of colors at me but the menus and stuff were reduced to dancing monochromatic icons. Basically.. everything looked totally jacked with no video showing up and then it shut off leaving the red lamp light on. I thought it was finally time to replace the lamp, so I installed the new one that I bought over a year ago. No change. After resetting the system and unplugging and everything I could think of, if it even came on at all, it would flicker and shut off again. Mitsubishi won't help. They only warranty the lamps for 30 days (wish I had known a year ago). I got a Bravia in the meantime while I research this problem and try to get it repaired.. Any insight would be appreciated.
I have a Sears Teh over right now, in teh same position. They noticd that the original ballast is OSRAm, while the replacement ballast, which he said is very common, is a Phillips. He is checking voltages on the exhaust fan, from what is seems. No luck.... Now, there is an orange light flashing after everything trys to boot up, whenbefore it was the steady red, showing LAMP. Also the error code was for lamp/bulb abnormality too, before the ballast was attempted to be replaced. Since this is visit # 2... I am hoping the next one is unsuccessful as well.. so I can get the value of whatever,a nd apply it towards an LCD TV. Since I use the WD-52525 52" TV as a monitor too, the LCD will not need these damn bulbs, and have a better contrast for reading text against a black backround.

Turn on the set and let it shut down. push in the Menu and Device (or input, I don't have a schematic in front of me) buttons on the front of the set at the same time and hold until the green light starts flashing. Then release. There will be two different sets of flashes, such as, 3 and 6. The code 12 means the set is opperating fine. The other codes will tell you what part of the set needs repaired. Also, remove the bulb and check the ballast connection to the bulb. I find the connection for the bulb bent over when a customer replaces the lamp sometimes. Let me know what you find and we can go from there.

maybe your problem is in the power supply circuit of your tv,but then try to replace the flyback first maybe there is no high voltage coming out on the cap.
