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!

Tip

An idea of making a rectangular glass tube with just 1 to 2mm thickness is not...


A weakness that you might experience with your projector is the collapsing of the light or mirror tunnel. Not sure if this is common to DLP projectors only. The symptom is that you see grey bands or shadows on the edge of the TV image - this is caused by a mirror getting in the way of the bulb light. The glue holding the mirrors together seems to weaken over time (3000 lamp hours in my case) and causes one or more of the mirrors to loose its position. For solution, search for "mirror tunnel" or "light tunnel" under all projectors. The problem seems to be quite widespread. I managed to fix my LG's.

I wonder why the manufacturers don't use a rectangular glass tube that is mirror plated on the long sides ?!?! Suppose they want to sell new projectors after lamp or mirror tunnel expiry!

Viewsonic 5132 dust blobs


Most likely your DMD chip has dust or hair on it. You can try blowing it out with compressed air but the best thing is to tear down and clean the dmd chip itself. Very carefully. Here is a video of a similar unit. SO far all the DMD projectors I have worked on have had a very similar set up. Take pictures as you go.

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.

Sharp dt500 projector


if none of the keypad keys work, it might be in lockout. if they do, the projector may need to cool down before it shuts down so the bulb won't retain the heat and cause damage. could also be button failure (or if the buttons are rubber, the contact underneath may be worn or dirty thereby causing no contact).

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.
