Mitsubishi WD-73827 with degrading color

2 yr old TV. Picture comes on fine but after 30 minutes or so it begins to degenerate into darker, fuzzier tones with purple faces and psychodelic-like color splotches that change with the background color. Sound is never a problem.

    We purchased WD73827 Mitsubishi in lat 06 and have had the same problem with the light engine twice and also with the lamp cartridege. The customer service at Mitsubishi in horrible to deal with. You would think with after paying so much and the high quality tv this is suppose to be, they would stand by their product more. The first thing they ask is if we had an extended warranty. We do, but if they were standing by the quality of the tv that shouldnt be a question.

Good Day;

More then likely your 2005 MODEL has a bad "LIGHT ENGINE". Call an Authorized Service Center and have them give you an estimate, then call MIT's and try to get them to give you a "CONCESSION". It's costly. Good Luck, big IRISH.

How do you do a convergence on the wd73286?


Hi,
Mitsubishi WD-73286 is DLP tv that does not have any convergence circuit inside.
Convergence is required in old model rear projection tv that has three basic colors picture tubes to generate color picture that projected on front screen of tv.
DLP tv has light engine to generate picture, it is similar to multimedia projector that throws its picture on wall.
Hope this info will help.
Thanks.

I have a 2 year old Mitsubishi WD-73732 - 1080p 73" Medallion Series DLP HDTV - WD73732. I am getting blotches of color when there are large areas of blue color. Looks like irregular moving stains...


It will cost you probably in the area of $700.00 to replace the Light Engine. I don't think it would be a good idea to repair it. DLP sets have been out of production a few years now due to high failure rates of the light engines for all makes and models and the consumer cost for the lamp.

Picture flashing, weak color. whenflashing stops


I have the same problem with a WD 73732. After about an hour fleshtones go blue / purple, and picture flashes. I gutted the set, and ran it on the bench, and found that a sensor on the color wheel (a small external board), acts up when it gets hot. Cooling the board fixed the picture. I'm going to try to find a replacement part, and then make vents in the color wheel cover so it doesn't get so hot in there.

Picture getting darker over the years


It could be your Light Engine. However, I would first check a few things:

1. Make sure your Low Power/Lamp settings are adjusted so that they meet your brightness needs.

2. Make sure you used a Mitsubishi original lamp, as generics get chewed through fast and hard.

3. Try another lamp; sometimes you can get a bad one in the bunch.

All those things don't work, consider a Light Engine ($400 + for parts; $300+ for labor)
