Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Mitsubishi DLP - model #WD62725

Lamp indicator light turned red - replaced lamp and light turned red again. Got another lamp thinking maybe the new lamp was a defect. However, after receiving yet another lamp I am still getting the lamp indicator light red. No picture, sound, nothing. T.V. starts up and then within 10-15 seconds the lamp indicator light turns red again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have mention that after 10-15 seconds T.V starts up, will you give total description of the T.V within that 10-15 seconds?

I have a hitachi ultravision tv I replace the lamp in it cause the light indicator was just on red and shut off I replaced it now the light is flashing indicating that its the wrong lamp or the lamp door...

If you bot a generic lamp to save money that is the problem. Some of the generics have wrong filament resistance and the circuit detection thinks its the wrong lamp. So, try a factory specified lamp and maybe it will go. Also, listen for the fan. fan has got to go or it will go into protection mode very time. Lamp door is where the fan switch gets activated. So, make sure lamp door is shut tight and perfectly.

Nope. It appears that you now have a main power supply issue since the set is dead.

Does a lamp error message (6 blinking red status lights) mean the lamp needs to be replaced? or could something else be wrong.

According to NEC technical support, if the status light flashes red six times, this could indicate a defective lamp. If a new lamp is installed and the project still won't turn on, the projector will need service.

Green light blinks many times (20+) than the red lamp blinks then the red light (standby) light come on. I think the lamp is bad - but before I purchae a new lamp, I want to make sure - any ideas

first you should pull out the lamp and check
it the lamp should be shattered in tiny pieces
if not try to see if it lights up just half way that would indicate that there is some other problem like a defect fan

Replaced both bulbs with brand-new bulbs. Now all

Verify that the lamp doors are securely closed. The blinking red lights indicate a lamp problem. In this case, both appear to be defective. I doubt that the lamps are the problem. double chack all connections and doors for proper seating. Update this if the problem remains.

New lamp but still no picture

Unless a lamp is shattered it is very hard to tell if a lamp is defective. Sometimes they may have a small crack and may not be noticeable or the igniter on your unit may not be strong enough to make it start. when you put the first lamp in maybe the lamp cover was not on correctly. it has a tab on it that closes a safety switch so you cannot turn it on with the cover off. You say the second lamp is working o.k.. try to reinstall the returned lamp and take notice of the lamp door to be sure it is on correctly. It may indeed be defective but it will be pretty hard if the mfg. says it is not bad because they found no fault with it.

We're under a service plan and had the guy out today. Same symptoms. He replaced the lamp and it didn't work and then called Mitsubishi. They said it is probably a very common capacitor problem on the power supply board. If you open the back and take a look you are likely to see bulging caps. Parts C9A37 and C9A38. The caps are cheap if you can find them, but the parts are really hard to find right now so Best Buy is actually replacing these for people under service plans rather than fixing them. You probably ignored the "warning signs" like we did and didn't think much of it when the TV said there was something blocking the air flow and the lamp was going to shut off. We now know this is a sign that the caps are getting too hot and need to shut down to cool off... Good luck! BTW, our guy said the repair will run you about $200 if you can't do it yourself.

TV shuts off after about 15 minutes of running. Shows steady red light on lamp indicator.

red indicator on the lamp is indicating the lamp is defective or the ballast isnt lighting the lamp. Try replacing the lamp. What model set do you have?
