Also does anyone know a of place that i can obtain the parts needed for the repair to this unit?

 Much thanks in advance!

Wow!  You need the optical engine and the digital DM board.  It would be less expensive to by a new set my friend.  Are these parts missing from the TV set.  I do have a service manual, but I do not know where to send it to you at, as you did not leave your e-mail address and my magic crystal ball is in the shop for repairs.  Laughing

oh sorry.

jweldon49@gmail.com

the parts are not missing from the tv they are still in there.  Why are they repairable?

I did buy a new set, but this is a project and i would like to possibly pump life back into it.

Do you have a method in which to obtain these parts?

What is the symptoms that the set has? Does the green light flash and there is no picture or sound? Who told you the DM and the light engine was bad?

Unless you're an authorized Mits service center you won't be able to purchase a DM board from Mits.

DM board part orders to mits require an authorization number obtained from Mits techline. No #, no board.

 BTW, you're talking about a serious investment into that set.  IIRC, the engine is easily around $600-800.  The DM, if you could get it, is probably another $250-300 and the ballast at $50-75.

Sounds like you're trying to shotgun this thing.

I also have this same TV and I need the service manual if it is possible. My picture is very dark in dark scenes and I was hoping it just needs minor adjustment. Any ideas anyone?

Try replacing the bulb.  Sounds like it is going out.  buy a good one.  200-300.

Is a "good one" from Mitsubishi or could you recommend some where else I should buy.

Leave an e-mail address and I will send you a copy of the factory service manual.

thanks very much!

September 6, 2007 7:41 AM

cjamie, I have sent out the service manual as well as the documents that you should need to troubleshoot and repair your TV set. If you do not know how to solder, play it safe and let a pro assist you in the capacitor replacement. Good Luck

Larry,

so do you think that my problem is with the caps or the lamp?

Thanks very much for all your help!

September 7, 2007 7:39 AM

I really doubt it is the caps. most likely the lamp.

Hi. I hope you wouldn't mind sending me a copy of the service manual also. I would really appreciate it. My email address is jeperez1@sbcglobal.net. I have some issues with my DLP also. Many Thanks JBG

Hello....
I am having trouble on the same TV but a different issue.  I think there is dust on the "mirrors" because there is random dust like spots on the screen.  I tried following directions from the store where I purchased it.  I was told to remove the speaker cover and unscrew a few screws to remove the screen so that I have access the mirors behind the screen.  I removed 2 panels...one to the light and the other i thought was the mirrors. I used canned air to blow the dust out and  it got worse.  So I think I am right about the dust but  I am scared to undo the wrong screw!!  Does someone have the service manual?....If so can I have it?  It would be a tremendous help!....
Thanks in advance!

We have this same tv(wd-62525).  We noticed that the picture had become very dim so following advice from almost everyone we replaced the lamp.  It made no difference, which at $300 was an expensive experiment.  We finally called an authorized Mit repair tech who said he had no idea what the problem was, that he had never heard of cleaning the mirrors.  More money down the drain.  Cleaning the mirrors ourselves will be our next attempt.  Larry, would you please send the service manual to me also?  Thanks in advance

unfortunately you've probably got a dirty light engine.

There aren't many light engines out there today that are real conducive to being stripped down and the optics cleaned. Regardless of the brand, the procedure is time consuming and works only part of the time and sometimes, the results can leave you with worse than what you had. Mitsubishi is one brand that is not a very good candidate for that sort of cleaning. Since you have no knowledge of electronics there's no point in even beginning to try that.

BTW, there's nothing in a Mitsubishi service manual on tearing down an optical engine.  For a novice, just getting the engine out will be an undertaking.  

November 11, 2007 7:55 AM

I second what MOtvGuy says, Dust is a terrible problem in all the projection types. Usually the only proper fix is to replace the light engine until we the tech's can convince our shops to put in a clean room. :)

November 11, 2007 7:57 AM

BTW, our parts guy said that pts is in the future, or now offering a light engine cleaning service.

November 11, 2007 8:25 AM

I have to agree with the other two, cleaning a light engine is a very complex thing to do, and they do not show this procedure in the factory service manual. The only thing to do is swap out the light engine. This is also no light undertaking, as a lot of these light engines take  several alignments when installing them. Good Luck

Hello Everyone!....

I think I solved my problem!.....FYI...My problem was "dust like" specks on the screen. They never moved with the change in the picture.  I removed the cover on the front of the TV and the two covers behind it.  One was for the bulb and the other...I dont know..."access" to something.  I assumed it was the "mirrors".  Then I used canned air to dust the area that I thought the problem was and it got worse.  Well I did it again! AND...again....and the "dust" FINALLY went away!!!

Anyway...hope this helps someone else!

OH....I did put the bulb cover on the last time and left the other cover off so that the TV would come on and I could see more of what I needed to "dust" because ot the light inside.

Thanks for your responses...GOOD LUCK!

Hi Larry I found this thread that is more like the TV I am working on for friends they have the WD-52525 I am assuming as in the past it is the same TV just a smaller screen then the WD-62525. They have replaced the lamp after the last one failed and now the TV will not come on. You can hear the fans startup but the lamp never starts I have check the connection of the lamp and see no problem. One thing I have been having trouble with is getting the set open enough to check some voltages so hopping that that will be in the service manual. If you have the service manual you can email me at fglowacki@earthlink.net. I have been checking out many of the treads on TechLore.com, I have to say you are a busy man thanks for all your help from all of us and keep up the good work. Frank G.

I am trying to repair my WD62525 dm module. I replaced 3 of the 4 bad caps but still have the blinking green light when plugged in. After pressing the reset button the blinking stops but when I attempt to turn on the set the red led starts to flash. Is there any place that I can get a service manual for the set in order to ensure that I reassembled every thing properly? Any Ideas?

Thanks Rubin

I sold my WD62725 on craigslist and it stopped working for the buyer after a month.  I am trying to help him.  I have replaced the four 1000mfd with 35 volt/105 C.  We still get the flashing green lamp forever.  I can test voltages and solder like a pro.  I am now aware of more caps that should be changed (3300mfd/10v ?).

Can the the error codes be read on this set when blinking light and no power?

Could someone pretty-please email me the service manual?

(yes, the set was sold "as is" for $900, and worked great for me.)

Thanks!

My Dad's WD62525 went out a week ago, acted like the bulb died, green blinking status light then a solid red lamp light. I replaced the bulb for him (for Father's Day) turned it on and the same thing happened....
Looking thrugh the vent above the filter I see the bulb light for a few seconds then go black after power up.
Larry, could you send me the service info for this set and a helpful nudge in the right direction. ( aztecan@netzero.com )
Reading on the forum about capacitors, ballasts and fuses, just wondering where to begin, last tv I worked on was an analog CRT type. Time to break out the Oscope and multimeter....
