    Thanks for the help... We called a tech out to clean it. Better safe than sorry.

    We have had to have the mirror cleaned a couple of times by a technician. They said they were working with Mitsubishi for a "permanent" solution but nothing has happened. On my old Mitshbisi TV's I could clean the mirrors and lense myself. I have seen several posts that mention they removed the screen and cleaned the mirros and lenses and this removed the spots. Proble is no one that I have seen has specifically said how they accessed the mirrors and how they cleaned them. Their only comments where that it was so much better after cleaning. I hate to need to have an expensive service call everytime in needs dusting. Help.



    Thanks

Wd-52525 This is a DLP, I dont suggest taking it apart to clean anything, this is what we call a MICRO display, the imaging device is about 1" square and blown up 50X to the size of the pix you watch, anytime anyone I know has taken stuff appart where the mirror is at has ended up worse off, you say that there is dust on the mirror, what does it look like in your picture? If the spots are quarter size or so and fuzzy edges the dust is inside the lightengine and you want a factory cleanroom to service the LE, the one thing I think you can safely do is pull the lamp and check for dust on it as it can cause issues in pix, other than that I dunno what to tell you, hope this info helps.

Mitsubishi 62525 static on screen more noticeable with dark background cleaned filter and replace lamp


A few of these (not sure if this model) have two mirrors inside--stupid idea and only a few had that--.

If this is the case here--little mirror (I mean LITTLE) is at bottom pointing up from the optical lens--gets dust and such from the fans= picture gets darker to the point where brightness is very diminished.

Mitsubishi can tell you if it has two mirrors (the large one in rear of set must not be touched and never needs cleaning as any finger prints etc will show in the picture.

If two mirrors I can tell you what to do--15 minute two person job.

I have seen alot of the Mitsubishi DLPs to get very dim and the colors appear dull and the cause was almost always caused by the small front mirror needing to be cleaned due to a dust build up. If you need assistance with how to access the mirror on that model send me a email and I will send you info on how to access the mirror. The file is too large to post here. [email protected]

Replaced wd-62525 lamp, picture dim


Cleaning the mirrors will not increase the brightness much. I would double check the lamp setting in the Menu and also the setting of the picture and brightness settings. Many times these are adjustable independently for different inputs. Besides this, I would look at the Ballast and or the Power Supply to cause the problem. I would recommend a professional to look at it if it is not correctable from the Main Menu of the set.
Hope this helps,

Best settings for moderate to low light viewing?


Using your remote, click the "video" button (mid area, Right hand side) and adjust the brightness, contrast, etc., to your liking. Only you know what you like. If your picture can be "plenty bright enough"...then just make the necessary adjusts to whatever looks best to you. If your picture is "very dim" no matter what the video settings are, you need a complete cleaning of all lens, mirrors, and screen...and possibly a new lamp.

Inside screen seems to be getting dirty


I had the same problem until I removed the screen and cleaned the front mirror with a static feather duster. First, turn OFF power. Second, remove screws on rear at top and on both sides of the screen. Third, remove speaker grill. Fourth, remove screws on each side of the screen where screen meets the speaker area. Fifth, remove two screws in center area of speaker area under screen. Sixth, lift screen up and away from set housing and use a duster with a two to three extension and GENTLY wipe the noticeable dust layer from the front tilted mirror located behind the screen at bottom of screen. Seventh, do everything in the REVERSE and you're done. If you need to replace the lamp, now's a good time to do so. Also you should clean the dust filter located behind an access door on the rear (right hand side as your are looking at the rear) with a handheld type of vacuum device.

After I completed ALL of the above procedures my WD-62525 was better than I remember. I bought it in 2005 and the picture quality has never looked so good.

The screen is as light as a feather but 62" is awkward. It is recommended you use another person to hold the screen but I work best alone and it was a breeze.

GOOD LUCK.

Dark spots on tv


I have the same TV, and I was getting the black spots on my screen as well. It is dust settling on the bottom mirror. Yoiu can call Mitsubishi and spend 150-200 on getting it cleaned, or you can do like I did and take the front panel off and the 10 screws around the edge on the back of the black plastic border around the screen. Then lift up gently and have someone hold the screen for you and gently dust the bottom mirror. I did this by myself, but it would be wise to have 2 people do it.
