Question about Projection Televisions

Mitsubishi Projector DLP TV

Hi Tim, you responded to my question about the shiny areas and glassy appearance in parts of our picture and I thought maybe it was the lamp going bad but since they are so expensive I didn't want to buy one and then find out it might be something else. You said it shouldn't be the lamp but that if I provided the model number you might be able to help me. The model number is WD-73727. This morning I had to turn down the brightness and contrast. Our picture is a lot dimmer but better, nothing like it use to be just a week ago. It was sharp and clear. We bought the TV used, it's a 2006 model. You mentioned something about an extended manufacturers warranty. I assume it may only apply to the original owner?
I don't mind paying something for your information but at first I was just hoping for a yes or no answer on the possibility of it being the lamp. Today I notice now that the areas on the forehead and cheeks are glassy and shiny and some of the light background. If yoou can help it sure will be appreciated. Thanks again for your time and expertise............Don

This problem is covered under the mitsubishi extended warranty for the 73" dlp. I would try contacting them to see if they will cover it. Not sure how they will handel it because you bought it second hand. If mitsubishi will not cover the repair the first thing you need to try is removing and re-seating the dvi cable between the o-block and the chassis inside the tv. mitsu claims this to solve the problem sometimes but i myself have never had it work. the only other thing to do is to replace the optical block assy. this is an expensive part. let me know if you have more questions!

On a Mitsubishi DLP wd-60638 do you have to clean the color wheel now and then


Hi Deilbert

If you are Tech Savvy, A quick careful air blow inside from a Camera Type Air Can could clear any dust accumulation and cool the projector down somewhat.
There are many moving parts & sensitive items.
If you do attempt to clean it with a can of air
Be very careful or it could be an expensive item.

The Modern LCD or LED or Plasma Screens are fully digital computers & have no moving parts.
My next one will be an LED or OLED as the price of power is going up and any savings around the house are welcome.
Even my Light Bulbs are all LED Now

These TV's are so dependent on Mechanical items & Timing & High Power Lamps. Just Glad I don't own one.
Must be expensive to run of electricity.

Good Luck
Cheers TJH

On my Mitsubishi WD-82840 DLP TV for the first hour of operation I'm seeing green pixelations in the darkest sections of the image displaying on the TV.


May mean the DLP chip is either not getting the proper level of black signal until the controller board has warmed up, or the DLP chip itself is not completely responding to the controller signals. After thoroughly warming up the problem goes away. This is a sign of aging of the parts. Diagnosing and correcting that type of problem is a challenge. Regards.

Bright white spots on mitsubishi wd-73833 I just replaced the lamp and now these bright white spots have started to appear!


This unit uses a DLP (digital light processor) chip and if this starts to fail then you will get spots appearing on the screen. The DLP chip will need to be replaced.

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.

Mitsubishi 73" DLP TV (Lamp going out?)


This is definitely not a bad lamp. The lamp can only make a picture or no picture. never can cause weird video problems. I do however think i know whats wrong with your set, and it may be covered under an extended warranty from mitsubishi. if you get back to me with the model number i will assist you further.
