Question about Mitsubishi WD-65732 65" Projection HDTV
I just replaced the lamp and about a day later it became dark from the top middle to the right and also on the left top to the middle of the left side. It makes a perfect square were it is bright and color. I have picture but can't post it on here. If any one can point me in right direction.
To begin with remove lamp and make sure nothing happened there as if the light is partly obstructed it could cause this
You can post a photo here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email them the photo to forward to me.
I worked on a lot of these sets when they were new but do not think I have seen or heard of a issue quite like this---too odd it happened shortly after a lamp was replaced.
By the way I am sure you know or knew not to touch the face of the lamp with your fingers.

Mitsubishi Caps cause dim Picture faulty capacitor issue in the WD-52525 does seem to be prevalent at the 3 yr mark. At the bottom of this long-winded comment is a link to another discussion forum similar to this one where we obtained the service manual, chassis replacement manual, and encouragement to attempt the repair ourselves. My husband and I are not experts by any means, but my husband did have the tools from previous electronics projects to solder. So we took a chance on looking for bad caps. And I am here to say that I’m so glad we did because there were 2 obviously swollen caps that were easy to replace. The picture is now even better than when the problem first occurred since we dusted the mirrors and screens while we were in there. NO WINDEX. Just a dry micro-fiber cloth did the trick. We'll probably do that annually going forward.
According to descriptions from several people, the symptoms and degrading image due to capacitor failure can take various forms. In our case, we had a lamp blow out 2 wks before the TV died. And I do mean blow out, not burn out. We didn't get any lamp replacement warning. It flat out blew the 1-yr old bulb to shards of glass inside the casing. We replaced the bulb with a brand new one like good stewards of a DLP HDTV should do. A mere couple of weeks later we watched the image degrade over the course of an hour through various stages until the new lamp simply wouldn't light anymore and there was a solid black screen and solid red lamp light even though the lamp itself was fine. The trouble-shooting diagnostics (pressing MENU and DEVICE buttons on the front panel) gave the 3-4 code indicating a lamp abnormality. But ultimately the problem was solved by replacing the C9A37 & C9A38 caps (both are 10V 3300M-M 105C). We did not have to do any repairs on lamp or ballast components. The cost of 2 new capacitors from Digi-Key including shipping was about $14.50.
Some folks have stated that they were able to do the repair without removing the power supply chassis from the back of the TV. That was not the case for us. It was a bit intimidating at first. But we disassembled everything, labeling as we went, so we could freely inspect and access all boards on the power supply. There are some tiny, very hard-to-reach connections between the power supply and the ballast. For this reason, I also recommend disassembling those ballast components from the frame. They're simply too fragile to force in a very tight space when reconnecting.
Lastly, I am still pleased with this TV. The color and clarity can not be rivaled in my opinion. Even after having gone through this, compared to the problems reported in some of the other threads on issues with whatever other brand name or model you pick, this is a relatively easy repair that can be DIY. This was why we went DLP in the first place. And it is why we will probably remain DLP fans until they aren't made anymore. But next time, we’ll go with an extended warranty for sure!
I do wish Mitsubishi would at least acknowledge the issue. I don't even expect any reimbursement, replacement, refund or anything like that. I'd just like to know that THEY know there's a simple problem to resolve and that they're doing something about it.
please mark the post with a fixya

You need to replace the "light engine". This is very very difficult. You need to take it to a repair shop. But this will be very expensive. Around $1,000.00

Most likely cause of your trouble is dust on the small mirror inside you set. Your DLP set has 2 mirrors not including the DLP chip itself which has about 500,000 tiny mirrors. The 2 mirrors reflect the DLP chip image to the screen you view. The first is the main suspect it's about 4inches by 7inches. It's mounted on the bottom center facing backwards. This mirror faces slightly up and somtimes after time dust, smoke, dirt settles on it . The second fills the space of the entire back of the cabinet but it faces down and takes alot longer to get dirty.
The compartment is sealed but dust seems to find it's way in. If you remove the screws that secure the screen assembly from the top , sides and bottom. Make sure to have a friend available the screen assembly is delicate when it's not mounted to the cabinet. You can remove and clean the mirrors. These mirrors are glass and you can use glass cleaned. Don't use glass cleaner on the screen it's plastic. You can clean it if necessary with plastic cleaner only. Probably not needed.

Tips for a great answer:
Sir try to follow this, turn off your Mitsubishi DLP television set. Unplug the TV from the wall outlet.Find the lamp compartment which is located on the back of the television in its lower right corner. Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screw located on the left side of the cover. Remove the cover and save it and the screw for replacement after you have changed the lamp assembly.Loosen the two metallic Phillips screws on the lamp cartridge. They will not pull all of the way out, but you can loosen them enough that they are simply hanging there. Good day and best regards hope this helps.
