Pictures Turns to Flickering Rainbow of Beautiful Light (Movie Included)

TV stars up fine but a few minutes later the picture flickers and then turns into a rainbow and flashes. When it first starts up it takes a second and then warms up and shows the picture. the picture is actually really nice. all the tubes are aligned. then a couple minutes down the road (usually one or two, but sometimes it'll give me five) it stars this flickering and goes to the rainbow. i made a little video and posted it on youtube so you might be able to see it better then my explaination. Video: okay, for the video. it first shows me turning it on and it turns on audio while the picture warms up. i wanted to show you the sounds so i then turned up the volume, but my microphone sucks, so i apologize. the video shows the picture to be sort of purpley, but that's just the camera. thank you so much for your help. (i was reading around before and saw that mitsubishi is a throw away brand, but i'm a college kid and my landlord was throwing it away and well, it's all i got.) thanks again, -jarl

Wd65738 flickering

I had a TV do that about a year ago, the repair man said it was the color wheel inside the tv. I changed the bulb to see if he was BS'ng me and eventually got the manufacturer to send a color wheel and I change it myself, was very easy...TV works fine ever since. Hope this helps

Tv comes on for a few minutes then goes off

If you take off the front bottom panel of the tv wich is easy. Then you will see 6 tuning knobs at the bottom middle of the tv .the top 6 control contrast for the lights dont mess with those. the bottom 3 are the power to each is bottom left if your screen went blue it makes sense that the red is starting to go but if you turn down the power to it left 1/8 turn it should fix it for awhile .Its easy.

DLP TV starts to loose picture after 1 - 1/2 hours of use

This tv has a 3 board video path. Analog main pcb --->Digital main pcb --->DMD pcb. see which inputs have the problem to narrow it down. if only some inputs, suspect analog board. if everything flickers(all inputs and menu), suspect the dmd or engine. you can see the lamp shine out the back. if the lamp is flickering, suspect lamp or ballast.

Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84

it could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.
