Question about Mitsubishi WD62628 62" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Half of screen blacks out

Mitsubishi dlp wd62628/tv will work fine and all of a sudden the right side of picture will go black. Left half of program continues normally. We then will turn the tv off, then turn it back on with tv remote, wait for the power light to stop blinking green and when solid green will then turn it back on with cable remote. Picture comes back normal and then a while later will happen again. Please advise. tguinan

Re: half of screen blacks out

Sounds like power supply caps or caps in the dm board

The DM board is the one with the digital connectors on the back panel. If you already have it appart, you may as well check the caps on all of the boards. The caps that go bad are typically Jamicon brand caps in 1000 uF and 330 uF values. There are also a couple of 3300 uF caps in the PS that cause problems.

My Mitsubishi TV has a small white dot on the screen

This could be something on the lens or mirrors. you can open one or both porthole covers on the left or right side of TV to determine if this is the cause. You can look at the mirrors & lens to determine if a bug or dust has gotten on either part. Then clean.

HOWEVER, the most likely cause is the DLP chip. this causes white & or black dots. May start out as one or two, then multiply.

See the following website for the proper DLP chip for your Mitsubishi model#:

The left side of my screen is blacked out. The

It is going to be a faulty light tunnel or a faulty DMD board. Both possibly require a complete light engine replacement. That repair requires a technician to do it.

I have a 56" DLP Samsung (HLR5668W) Right side goes solid black

The color wheels will never fix an issue like that. The only things that will cause that issue is a bad DMD board which is part of the light engine or the digital board which is not. Freak Squad need to replace the digital board.

Samsung 2006 56" HLR5688W DLP TV Right half of screen turns black. Left side normal picture. Corrects itself when set is turned off and back on. Randomly occurs - sometime picture is ok for half a day...

Possibly a bad light tunnel assembly if the part is only a shadow effect. If not then probably a bad DMD board. The DMD board is part of the light engine but needs to be replaced by a technician.

Fading screen

If you're seeing a shadow either vertically or at an angle the most common/probable cause is the light tunnel in the light engine. I have this same problem with my ru-44sz51d and have found many people with similar problems. For reference search "dlp light tunnel" as many samsung dlp's are suffering from the same problem and have been since they were purchased. You should be able to repair this yourself, but only if you feel comfortable and are knowledgable in such a situation. The repair may consist of replacing any number of the 4 or so mirrors or just reapplying the silicone adhesive to the original mirror. As I have not done this yet myself I can only speculate and refer to topics I've read about. Good luck

Black line

I just had this problem with my Samsung 50' DLP HLR5067WX/XAA. Fortunatly it was still under warranty with Best Buy, so they fixed it for me. They had to order a brand new light engine. (or where the mirrors are, if i'm not using the right terminalogy) He said the problem is with one of the mirrors that has slipped (or slipping because overtime the black line will get thicker and thicker). I hope i'm saying it right, but it was with a tiny mirror that was slipping. Hope it's under warranty. I've also had 1x component plug burn out on me, my HDMI port went to ****, and he's gotta come back out because when he made the repair, the picture was reflecting too high up and to the left. (MLB 2k7 for xbox 360 - scores on top of screen are about 1/4th cut off). He said is next trip back to my house would result in me getting a new TV, so can't wait for his arrival! good luck with your tv

DLP TV: Left half normal, vertical 6" band center is gray, right half almost black. What's wrong?

No. The optical engine is OK. You need an adjustment in the light tunel. Call a tech to do it.
