Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

WD 52525 I heard a loud pop and discovered the lamp had blown. I ordered another lamp installed it and got no picture at all, only sound. The green light comes on and after a couple of minutes the red lamp light goes on saying bad lamp. The lamp filament and all seem fine. It doesn't even seem like the lamp went on because it never heated up. I called DLP Lampsource and they will send out another but they recommend I have a repairman look at it before I try to install the new lamp. What do you think? Norm

Mitsubishi WD-52525 Rear projection hdtv I just turned my tv on and after about 1 minute I heard a pop, and the tv turned off. I tried turning it back on, and I have audio, but no picture...what could...


Your lamp blew. Hopefully the power surge did not take out the ballast. You need to get a new lamp. I have a tip at which will not only tell you where to get the lamp at the best price but also walk you through the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

usually with that model when you get a 34 eror code for lamp abnormality, its directly related to the capacitors on the Power Pwb.

Low pitched grinding or groaning noise

Dan i recently had one of these in the shop and discovered a problems with blown capicitors in power supply.. however the low pitch groan indicates a fan or what is known as a color wheel. if this motorized part does not reach speed the lamp will not fire. replaceing the color wheel is not an easy task.
