Question about Mitsubishi WD-Y57 57" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Over the last few weeks I starting to notice the screen is getting darker? I thought it was me but I don't think so. I also noticed it like flicker alittle bit like it was getting dark and light. For the 1st time it acted like it did not want to come on. Does a bulb go out all the way or can one become week?

Fault to the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

Our LG tv has started making a vibrating whistling sound when you first cut it on, you can hear it get faster and faster then slowly goes away.. Also over the past few months I've notices the picture


the picture getting darker means the lamp has aged and u need to replace it another thing u need ti replace the mirrors in the light tunnel of the light engine they have faded secondly the noise means the colour wheel has aged you need to replace it u will have to replace the whole light engine cos the color wheel comes inbuilt the light engine and u will be ok ontact lg dealer in your area

Screen getting dark


If you have never changed the lamp this is more than likely the issue, as the tv ages the lamp looses brightness. Most lamps are rated for 3000-5000 hrs of use. Replace the lamp assembly part # UX21514 and you will notice a much brighter picture. You do not mention if the tv plays the right colors on the entire screen. These have had light engine issues.
Good luck with it

Phantom horizontal upward-scrolling lines... from a PS3 with HDMI to DVI


Everything works better on component, I know the salesman at the store says its better, but its not....I tell customers all the time (I could hook up three tvs side by side..HDMI-DVI-Component and the human eye cannot tell the difference) The reason the DVI and Hdmi were created was for copy guard encription....Although the component is an analog signal, it goes to a A/D conversion..........But this is just my insane opinion...Good Luck

Flickering on black screen or dark areas of a screen


The moving might have created a loose conection,the sets age tell me there are possible other overheated areas that need to be resoldered to prevent other symptoms,If you are familiar with tv service you can check the conections in the output transformer area,he is responsible for generating the high voltage that lights up the 3 picture tubes,before the Hight volatege gets to the pix tubes there is a High volage distribution box that separetes the voltage for each tube,check it and make sure is not degraded,you need to be very careful when dealing with these parts,there is a lot of volatge in that areas,If you are not familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance froma servicer.
