Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV popped, bad picture and vibrates

I was watching TV when there was a pop and a pixelated picture and then the TV started to vibrate off and on. I could also smell a slight electrical burn smell, but the TV was not hot. Any ideas?

The pop was a high voltage arc of electricity that blew some vital components on the main circuit board. The unit is of no use now. Repairs are far more than replacing the TV.

I've worked on a few of these sets and have found C2P08 to cause something like rolling bars in the picture and have found C2P05 to cause lines jumping in the picture.

If the lamp has failed, don't fall for just paying big $$ for a new one from Misubishi. Instead, of buying their whole lamp assembly, just buy the bulb from me or many other sources on the net and install it into the assy yourself.

SOURCE: blinking timer light and cannot turn on

How many times does the LED blink? Does it blink 6 times, pauses, and repeats? Or is it some other number of blinks? Or does it just blink continuously, once a second? (Note: on Mitsubishi's it is normal for the TV to blink rapidly for about 90 seconds after you plug the TV in, while the TV runs internal self-tests.) If the LED continues to blink continuously after 90 seconds, then the problem is on the DM board. There are 4 electrolytic capacitors, grouped together. I believe they are either 820 uF (mfd - microfarads) or 1000 uF at 16 Volts. If you check them, you will see that their tops are swollen (slightly rounded; not flat across). They will check okay with a capacitance meter or ESR meter, but don't believe your meter! Replace those 4 capacitors with either 820 or 1000 uF capacitors rated at either 16 or 25 volts. Make sure you use good, high-temperature (105 deg C) low-ESR capacitors. I recommend the "FM Series" capacitors from Digi-Key corporation, part number P12366-ND or P12379-ND. Less than $1.00 apiece. Good luck!

SOURCE: Mitsubishi rearTV has intermittent wavy lines running throughout

Do you have anything to test it in 1080i? Does it do it on all connections or just one? I had a similar problem with my TV that turned out to be a bad input board. Mine would only display 1080i through the Component connections. All others would show pink and green wavy lines. It cost me around 500 to fix it. Unplug the TV. Remove the back cover for the TV. Using a NON-metal object, or gloves, wiggle the input board (that has all the video connections on it) slowly back and forth and see if the problem comes and goes. You will have to have someone watching for you. If something is loose on that board, the problem should show itself. Narrowing down the problem will probably save you money on repair bills.

SOURCE: WD-52525 52 in. Rear Projection HDTV Television: my mitsubishi projection tv has a distorted pictur...

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Repair dead pixels?


Dead pixels can not be repaired.
The model# WD-52525 you provided is for a DLP TV.
If you are seeing white dots on the screen it is due to a bad DMD chip or light engine. Unfortunately, it is not a cheap fix.

Good luck

cpvsmv,

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 http://www.fixya.com/support/r4168009-change_lamp_in_dlp_projection_tv 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.

TV problem - Mitsubishi wd-62327 62


If the lamp is bad, you will hear a buzz noise as it tries to fire up the lamp. If you let it try enough it will spit out the error message. You can pop the speaker grille off and gain access to the lamp door. Use a philips screwdriver to get in. The lamp will be shattered or damaged looking if bad. If you have a good lamp, you may have 2 bad capacitors on the power board (3300uf). They will be bulged on the top and not flat. It is difficult to disassemble this tv.

sounds like the projector globe is gone. i think you will need to replace it. if you are lucky there should be a pannel on the side or rear of the tv that allows you to replace the globe. pricey though.

good luck
