Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Service Manual Techman, On July 11, 2007, mtsanch gave you credit for the solution to his capacitor problem. I have the same problem he described. I would greatly appreciate it if you would forward me the service manual for accessing the power supply board to replace the capacitors. My email is [email protected] Many thanks.

    Fixya is great! My problem with my Mits WD-52525 was described on Fixya. Techman gave the solution - blown caps on the power supply board. I purchased and downloaded a service manual and ordered caps from Mitsubishi. My brother-in-law has worked with power supply boards and did the repair. Yeah, we had a few extra screws left over when we put it back together, but the TV is working! Thanks to you and a couple of folks who sent me suggestions.

    I seem to be having the same symptoms as well. Could you send me the service manual at [email protected]. Started disassembly but got stuck. Maybe I should get an otter to open this clam. {:^)

    I have the same problem. I have part of a service manual but it does not show how to get to the power supply. Help with a manual if you can.

    Email to [email protected] Thanks

I may have what you need. I have mine apart all over the floor right now. This is how I learned about cars too. Finding blown capacitors but not the 1000/16v ones, but then I am just digging into the power supply. Will forward what I have.

    BTW, breaking this thing open is tougher than a one armed otter opening a clam. Been debating about replacing what I see now and putting it back together or spend the rest of tomorrow to check the other boards.

  • noseriously Sep 18, 2007

    Fixed it. Turned out to be 3300/10v capacitors on the power supply. Symptoms were a harsh horizontal and vertical scroll which eventually went black. Had audio. Strange deal was that as I went to switch devices it would shut off and I got the solid red light.

    Replaced both caps and it works fine. Thanks to all on this web site.

I have two charges on my bill. What is a virtual charge

Your question is incomplete. Please add details using the Comment menu choice.

It sounds like your credit card bill, perhaps you paid "virtually", that is, not in person, and gave the credit card number and made authorization over the phone or using the internet, but without handing over your credit card in person.

Check with your bank or credit card company.

FIXYA did not bill you. It is a free service given by unpaid volunteers who live all over the world, using the internet.

Can caps isue cause tv not to come on at ll. no lights no click sounds nothing

Defective capacitors can cause all kinds of faults, so, yes, your capacitors could be the cause of the fault you describe. Replacing such capacitors is not always easy, because manufacturers sometimes use multilayer circuit boards where the contact is in an inner layer of the PCB. However this is not always the case. If he PCB on which the defective capacitors are located can be removed it may be a relatively simple job for someone skilled in the art of soldering to replace them. Otherwise, it is a job for a professional TV repair technician. It may be possible to replace the card with another, or to take it a Samsung service centre for repair. You are likely to discover that it is easier or cheaper to buy a new TV,

There may be other problems with your TV that is causing it not to turn on.

I entered my problem about July 5, paid my $12 by credit card, and have heard nothing at all. Please confirm that the $12 will be credited back to my credit card.

You need to report this to the resolution center. As this is time bound do it at the earliest.
Plz. dont forget to rate this suggestion.

It started to smell and then started to smoke last July I haven't turn it on since.

If you didn't haven't had the unit serviced and repaired since last July, now is the time to do it. With what you described, I seriously doubt, that the problem solved itself.

You will need the service manual to do this repair. I happen to have it, as this site was suppose to put in the pictures and things to explain that a lot of TV sets are still using this DM board, but they are building them differently. Just follow the directions in the service manual on how to remove the DM board and then follow the directions in the article on repairing the DM board. I will need your e-mail address to forward this service manual to you. Good Luck

Not unless you have a magic wand!!!lolol This happens alot when a service man goes out to the house as they are told not to do many repairs in the home cause theres no money in it . If the set is over 3 to 5 years old it might not be such a stupid idea of looking into another set. Good Luck
