Picture is getting darker


Many of these DLP sets the picture gets darker right before the lamp fails.

Average life of the lamp is 2,000 hours----about 1 to 2 years of normal use.

If the lamp has not been replaced for a long time it is first suspect in this case.

Let me know if you have questions.

Mitsubishi WS 65857 Picture problem.


Mitsubishi's have been known to "burn in" when you have a stationary image on the screen for too long. Usually its not a problem but in some cases I've seen..if its hours and hours of game play..or even places like home shopping network that have phone numbers that never move during the broadcast...it can cause the image to burn the screen.

The projection tubes would not be burned...it would be the mirror viewing screen.

PICTURE IS GETTING DARKER AND DARKER


Hi,
Without more information, assuming its a Halide lamp, and the viewing angle of the TV hasn't also got worse I would say yes and quickly, if the image has degraded badly the lamp is close to failure which could cause further damage.
Although only a guide as some lamps last longer than others you should always keep an eye on the lamp hour counter The manual should tell you how long to expect from a lamp.

Dark Screen


The lamps in these normally last about 3000 hours (if your really lucky). The bulb will start to loose it brightness as a matter of due course at about the halfway mark. It maybe that you are running the unit in the non economy mode that they are fading faster then normal.
The sets have a reputation for not being good with lamps though.

Have a look at the lamp though, make sure it has been off for at least an hour to let it properly cool and check for dust that has settled on it. Also if you wipe the lamp, make sure it is with a dry cloth, or allow plenty of time for any moisture to completly dry before turning it on if you use a damp cloth.
