Mitsubishi WD-52631 shadows and blurs in dark lit movies

I have always gotten great pictures for Football games and movies where the picture is very bright, but for dark movies, like The Godfather, there is a shadow and blurring effect. I have and HD reciever and am using HDMI connectivity. The same effect happens when watching TV or DVD's, Live or DVR. It's almost as if the TV has an easier time distinguishing shades of color than shades of black.

    It's been this way since it was new. It has something to do with interpreting darkness, blacks and greys. The picture is absolutely perfect when watching something well lit, like a football game. The problem only occurs when watching a show that is darkly lit where there are shadows.

    That's just it, they are not well defined, which produces a shadowing effect. It's like the opposite of 3D, where defined blacks in the background make the foreground stand out. This shadowing effect makes the background bleed into the foreground, or the foreground bleed into the background, whichever would be the correct discription. In either case, you cannot distinguish well between the foreground and the background.



    It's not the lamp because the picture on a well lit program is astonishingly beautiful, and vivid. There is either a simple way of adjusting blacks that I'm unaware of, or it may be a manufacturing defect that they did not account for and unadjustable.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WD-52631 shadows and blurs in dark lit movies

If you are getting the same problem with both TV monitors it could then be assumed it's an input problem to the TV monitor. If you are using a digital output from your receiver it could be the cabling. If you are using an analog output from your receiver it is probably coming from the receiver.
Digital video processing does have issues with darker scenes.
Can you try another video source seperate from the receiver like a DVD or better yet an analog VHS, if you still have one. Good luck and let me know.

I have a 65731 HD DLP and when I turn it on and start watching a light scene it works great... until a show has a dark scene, like rain or low lighted scene. it appers to look blue or red shadows on...


hi,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The most common problem for this complaint is contaminated coolant for the picture tubes. If you look directly into the three picture tubes you will probably see a haze in the blue one. This is fairly common but requires a knowledgeable service man to take care of.
