Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Lamp light (lite the color red)

Hi! I just replaced what I thought was a bad bulb, and after checking the light comes on for aprox 15 seconds and the turns off and after 20-30 seconds, the red lamp light comes on. Could this be a bad ballast? A tv repair facility advised me it could be the color wheel. Thank you for any advice,Greg

Chances are its the bad capacitor issue on the power pwb, These symptoms will mimic a bad ballast. You can get a repair kit for the V26 PWB PCB at the following link which contains the replacement capacitors and a CD which identifies the board and capacitor location that needs the capacitors changed and also contains the Service manual on that CD, and the entire kit costt less than just the service manual anywhere else. They have free tech support to help you with the repair as well. Heres the link the kits are listed under the repair kit catagory.

Power button blinks green about 1 minute then goes red


There is an additional problem,

if the bulb had been replaced by a technician, call them back and ask for additional support, since they did not fix the problem.

Replaced bulb but tv comes only comes on for about 10 to 15 seconds then shuts down and red light flashes


It sounds like you have a bad ballast board, or possibly the power supply going to the ballast bulb. I'm afraid that if you do not have the repair experience on solid state TV sets, you will need to contact and authorized Mitsubishi repair center. Good Luck

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp


Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

Mitsubishi WD-52525, replaced bulb but still not working


SYMPTOM: Power LED does not stop blinking after plug in.
CURE: Check C81A2, C81A3, C81B3 and C81B4 (1000 uFD, 16V, 105C) on the DM PCB.
Check C8F19, C8F21, C8F22 and C8F27 (1000 uFD, 16V, 105C) on the FMT PCB.
If any are bad, replace all of them with part # 181P734030 (680 uFD, 16V, 105C).
this is what we at the shop check first. it is quite common. on the power supply board look for swelled up capacitors
