If this is a CRT type most probably loosely connection of the other color gun. Commonly attached to the backend of the CRT.Dust problem or transistor is busted for color red and blue. Or some minor component connected to driving color.

I just bought a new lamp 3 months ago, and the screen is now very dark. With the brightness all the way up the picture is dark.


Hi,

Your most likely fault is bulb failure. The only way to confirm a weak bulb situation is to replace with a known "good" bulb. Maybe your replacement bulb is not the correct one, or has a problem, like damage from shipping or poor quality to start with. We hear from many users that buy el cheapo bulbs from Internet shopping carts and have failure within 30-90 days. Many shopping carts churn out inferior copies, surplus or rejected products ranging from TV parts to doll clothes and costume jewelry.

Premature lamp failure can also occur with rough use such as:
  • Turning off TV and starting again while still hot.
  • TV turned on while Lightning strikes or other power line "bumps" occur.
  • Collisions with vacuum cleaners or balls bounced against TVs while operating.
  • Over-heating caused by poor ventilation or direct sunlight.
You may also have optical engine failure if images on the Sony Optical Engine Fault Gallery appear with the dim picture.

Sony wega 55 inch tv turns on fine but after one minute tv shuts itself off and comes back on 40 seconds later by itself and this cycle continues - none of the error code lights blink


This kind of problem occurs when lamp becomes weak that means near to end of working life hours but still not dead nor broken.
Replacement of lamp in tv will solve your problem, lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual.
Thanks.

Sometimes the TV's lamp will not go on with the first Power-On


When the set shuts off again count the number of times the led on the front flashes and the color of it. ait will flsh a number of times pause and then repeat. this is an error code and will help diagnose the problem.

Mitsubishi wd-73736 bulbs buzzing noise


The Ballast that ignites the Lamp could cause the Lamp to fail and/or cause a buzzing noise. That being said, the Color Wheel in the Optical Block assembly could also cause a similar symptom. If Mitsubishi would be willing to help with the Lamp cost, I would call a local Mitsubishi repair facility to install it and see if the noise is still there and find out exactly what is causing it. Mitsubishi Customer Service Phone number is 1800-332-2119.
I hope this helps,

Color fades out on tv


I have the same tv and the same problem (color banding, incorrect colors, colors blinking) occured after I replaced the lamp. I had a tv repairman take a look at my unit and he said the color index was incorrect, the tv doesn't know the correct colors to display. The best way to fix that problem is to replace the "light engine". The repairman replaced the "light engine" to my tv and everything is working great. My tv was still until warrenty so I don't know how much a new "light engine" would have cost.
