WD-52525 Image problem

To make a long story short, please refer to images

http://a871.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/80/l_415e0aa91bc020a6e33caa5cb8221eee.jpg

Now that you see the problem, here's a brief version of the story.

I unplugged the power to clean out the air filter as stated in the Owners Manual, when I had plugged it back in, I got that image, Hit the reset button and it shuts down and the green timer light just blinks and blinks forever. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and the problem went away.

6 months later (Nov. 19th, 2007), unplugged my TV to re-arrange my living room and the problem came back.

Followed the steps above at least 3 or 4 times with no avail.

Any Ideas?

If no who wants to buy this TV for $200, lol I know no one will buy a broken TV.

    Developed the same trouble with my 52525. Can't get the unit to reset and the green light blinks constantly. According to Mitsubishi service center, TV will have to have the chassis removed and sent to Mitsubishi for repair. TV will be out of commission for at least 8 weeks. Mits is NO HELP at all. According to NINE different authorized service reps in my area (/ Dallas/ Ft. Worth) this problem is rampant. If you are willing to go without your TV for 8-10 weeks and then pay between $750 and $1000 for the repair, have at it. Mitsubishi customer service is PATHETIC and the reason my $3500 DLP set that is 3 1/2 years old will be out at the curb with the trash on Friday!

It looks like the swolen capacitor issue - I and alot others did the repairs myself but dont just replace the 4 1000 uf on the DM board, The 2 3300 uf on the PSU are probably bad and do a general inspection of all the boards for bad caps.

Have a red double image


Dust on the mirrors was only a minor problem, and one that I could have dealt with. Unfortunately the entire system shut down because of lamp and circuitry issues. The cost to repair would have been 2/3 the cost of a nice new tv, and I would have been left with a giant piece of garbage that was destined for more problems and a lifetime of expensive nearly annual lamp replacements. We got rid of it shortly after my first post. Biggest mistake ever.

My WD-52525 green timer light keep blinking and the tv will not comes on


If you've never replaced the lamp on that TV, I recommend you do it. Most probably it reached it's average lifepsan they have and that's why you're not getting an image at all. Now if you already replaced the lamp and still have the same issue, it's most probable that the ballast is faulty, this is the board in charge of sending energy to the lamp so it can turn on. www.discount-merchant.com/?Click=48427

My wd-52525 lamp indicator indicated that I needed a new lamp. I purchased a lamp, installed it and of course it still indicates a bad lamp. I took the lamp assembly and had it checked out by a tech and it...


Actually Tim, it seems more like a ballast issue, I recommend you replace it, since ity doesn't have enough energy to keep up with the lamp, and that's why you gte a lack of image.

4yr old Mitsubishi DL 52525, HDMI input vide problem


Are you sure its the TV and not the source? Are you sure its only the HDMI port on the TV? The only reason why you must HDMI is to get 1080p and your TV doesn't support 1080p. Its supports up to 1080i. Your TV has a native resolution of 720p which means it can accept a 720p image and not need to scale it, so the picture will look the best at 720p but will support 1080i. I would use component cables to connect your sources and set them to output 720p.
