Anyone still own this series? I had gotten the chassis replacement/rebuild back in 2008 to address the BGLOD, and last week my 52525 died again. I suspected that it was going to be the BGLOD, however at first the set would just cycle itself on powering, with a audible hum before starting all over again. After leaving the set to power down to cold metal, unplugged, today I let it sit powered, and now I have the BGLOD after a number of hours powered. Tried the system reset and brief power cycle, but still BGLOD. I know it was inevitable, but I wanted to share.
I know this thing isn't worth all that much, and it will be a pain to do the repair again, even on my own, so I'm leaning toward dumping it or stripping for parts. My brother-in-law has a 62725, where he recently attempted to replace the bulb, but it wouldn't come on again. He's since got a replacement, and offered me the set... but he's 120 miles away. I doubt at this point that Mitsubishi will offer any deals. Any suggestions would be appreciated. If someone in San Diego, or Glendora might want either, let me know.
