Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

WD-60638 I have a Mitsubishi WD-60638 I bought used. The colours and blacks are washed out quite a lot with all of the different settings. Even pure black screens are quite gray looking, almost as if light is escaping out the sides and reflecting off the inside of the tv. Any ideas how I can resolve this? The previous owner had a new lamp put in, she showed me the old lamp and the box for the brand new lamp, it was a phillips brand lamp that was put in.

    Also there is a kind of halo around bright objects in a dark scene. The halo extends out quite a lot, sometimes a few inches outwards depending on the initial brightness of the object.

This is a issue with the DMD board it is not using the colors properly. This part runs around $200 plus you might need to pay for installing.When a color wheel is bad you will have different symptoms.
I hope this helps :)

that is a common problem with that model you will need the v26 power pwb repair kit and the V26 FMT pwb repair kit. You can get both kits at the following link which includes the replacement capacitors and instructions on where the capacitors are located. Heres the link.

Chances are the lamp is not bad. Is the lamp door reseated properly? The is an interlock on that door that must be activated in order for the set to turn on. If the unit was woking before the lamp went out this may be the problem

SOURCE: wd 52525 52 in dlp tv screen needs cleaned

all you have to do is, take the 12 screws out from around the screen, from the back, there are also like 4 of them on the front, but usually , you can just lean the screen out far enough to use a swifer sweeper in there, and the dust isnt going to be on the back of the screen, it will be on the projecter, do the screen while the tv is on, then you will realy see the dust on the projecter

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WD-65733 no picture, electrical buzzes in series

What it sound's like is that the lamp ballast is the problem. Buzzing sounds like when the power is first brought to the ballast it has to ramp up the voltage to get the lamp to light, then the voltage drops back down when the lamp is lit. Sounds like the lamp ballast isn't ramping up the voltage the way it should. May have to replace it. A good service shop would be able to do this for you.

I have a mitsubishi tv model wd 60638 I changed the lamp. Tv works fine for about 20 minutes then I start to smell like something is burning then picture starts to flicker, what could could cause this


You have a bad connector in the lamp. Stop running the TV immediately and contact the company you purchased the lamp from. this is common in older DLP tvs but not in one 5 years old unless you have a lot of hours on it. the connector can crack and arc inside the plug and then melt and smell terrible. It usually very repairable if you can get a ballast for it. the plug is part of the ballast.

I have an Epson XP-202 printer which I use solely as a black and white copier. Accidentally I pressed the colour button for a copy which ( as the original colour cartridges are still in the machine) has...


Not sure about Epson but I had the same problem and the store where I buy my ink said that a lot of the printer companies require all the color cartridges with ink in them to work. My color use to disappear even if I just pushed black and they said that was the way they were made . They sell printers quite cheap but make their money on the ink. I got rid of mine and purchased a black only ink jet and it hardly uses any ink at all. Its a powder. You can copy many copies on eighty dollars worth of ink where the cartridges I went through several hundred dollars a year.

Replaced lamp in my mitsubishi wd 60638 dlp but now I have a flickering picture


Sounds like a new lamp that is generic (not Mitsubishi) as the set does not know which lamp is in the set--works with one and not the other you have found your problem.

Canon Pixma 3600 I want black & white printing only for documents Question: How do i turn off the colour cartridges for black & white printing only?


The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.

  1. Open the presentation you want to print.
  2. Click on the word File in the Menu Bar.
  3. Select the option Print.
  4. The Print dialog will appear.
example:
sayurisan20_3.jpg 5.In the Color/Grayscale section, choose the Grayscale option to print in black, white, and shades of gray. 6.Choose the Pure Black and White option to print in black and white only. 7.Click on the OK button.
