Question about Mitsubishi WD-73827 73" HDTV DLP TV
I have a Mitsubishi 62 inch DLP TV that is about 3 years old and I am just notcing that my picture seems to be getting darker and less bright and vivid then when it was new. Is this common? Is there a solution for this? I have recently replaced the bulb and that didnt seem to help.
I've noticed no one has mentioned cleaning the optics and mirrors of the TV. If the TV optics become dirty this well effect the brightness. I would do a serch on the cleaning of DLP TVs. This will be the cheapest way to go.

It could be your Light Engine. However, I would first check a few things:
1. Make sure your Low Power/Lamp settings are adjusted so that they meet your brightness needs.
2. Make sure you used a Mitsubishi original lamp, as generics get chewed through fast and hard.
3. Try another lamp; sometimes you can get a bad one in the bunch.
All those things don't work, consider a Light Engine ($400 + for parts; $300+ for labor)

DID YOU USE THE FOLLOWING LAMP
BP96-00826A (PHILIPS WRITTEN ON THE LAMP)? ALSO PLEASE CHECK THAT THE LAMP IS COMPLETELY SEATED OR IT WILL RESULT IN BRIGHTNESS ISSUES. THERE WAS ONE THAT I REPLACED THE LAMP IN AND I NOTICED THAT THE DIAL OPENING ON THE LAMP HOUSING WAS A BIT SMALL AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE COMPLETE SEATING OF THE LAMP AND I HAD A DARK PICTURE AS A RESULT. I USED MY CORDLESS DRILL WITH THE PHILIPS HEAD STILL ATTACHED AND REAMED THE HOLE LARGER AND IT SOLVED THE PROBLEM.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

Sounds like one of the light sources has failed or half of the projection source has failed(first is more likely)
If your TV is still on warranty you may want to call them to come pick it up. I doubt you'd want to move this yourself since it weighs over 100lbs
