If you replace the lamp you need and got sound no picture is your color wheel. Make sure the cover wherew the lamp goes is close completly other wise it would not work.

Thank you

Lamp is bad need new lamp

SOURCE: Lamp failure indicator

I had the same issue when replacing my lamp for the first time. I replace just the bulb with the Phillips replacement bulb. After installing the power down issue started and it would take up to 7 attempts before the TV would stay on with a picture.

Since I never had this problem until i replaced the bulb i decided to send the new bulb back and replace it with a difference one. In my opinion replacement parts are never made to the same standard as original OEM parts. This TV is definitely very temperamental in regard to the bulbs.

When the second replacement bulb arrived I decided to not only replace the bulb I also cleaned the connector plug in the cartridge with a QTip and alcohol. I did the same for the plug receptor in the TV.

When I replaced the bulb i insured the the top of bulb lettering was facing the handle of the cartridge so when you put the cartridge back in the TV the top of the bulb would be facing you.

I also cleaned the entire inside of the TV where the cartridge is inserted including the screws.

Once I did all this the TV turned on the first time and has been working fine for three days now.

I do believe the replacement bulb position is very important as to how it heats up and determines when it needs to cool.

I hope this helps others with the same success i had because I really do not want to replace this TV and start replacing all the parts others have done with little to no success for this issue.

Check in your operating menus on the TV as there is most likely a lamp timer reset that needs to be performed.

Televisions covered: Mitsubishi DLP High-Definition Televisions:
C Series: WD-60C8, WD-65C8, WD-73C8
735 Series: WD-60735, WD-65735, WD-73735
736 Series: WD-65736, WD-73736
835 Series: WD-65835, WD-73835

Here's an online version of your televison's (94 page) "Owner's Guide":
http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/pdf/ownersguides/WD-60735.pdf

It sounds like the lamp in your "Mitsubishi Lamp-Cartridge" blew.

If your TV remains under warranty, you'll want to call Mitsubishi at 1-800-553-7278, and you'll need to have (a) Mitsubishi Model number, (b) serial number, (c) TV purchase date, and you'll have to ship the old lamp module back to Mitsubishi so that:
"All lamps replaced under warranty must be returned to Mitsubishi where they will be inspected for defect verification."

Return old Lamp-Cartridge to:

Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America
1001 Cherry Drive, Suite 2
Braselton, Georgia 30517

If you have trouble finding your TV's information, you need better "Warranty Management". Warranty Management can be done with software, or on paper. You may even choose to toss all your Owner's Manuals into a box, with the receipts. In case anything malfunctions/needs to be reprogrammed/reset then the manual & spare parts/cables (in a large Zip-Loc(R) baggie or two) can be quickly located and consulted.

If you television happens to be out of warranty, a nice (expensive) new lamp module can be ordered from Mitsubishi by calling 1-800-553-7278, or by ordering online at http://www.mitsuparts.com.

Refer to pages 75-76 of your Owner's Guide for complete Lamp-Cartridge module replacement instructions (with nice illustrations).

Your TV's Lamp-Cartridge part number is: Mitsubishi 915B403001

Here's an online source for the Mitsubishi 915B403001 Lamp-Cartridge:
http://www.dlplamps.com/products/mitsubishi-dlp-lamp/mitsubishi-915b403001.html?gclid=CLzb6ciaiq0CFQdN4AodZkMonA

Note that with the dlplamps.com offerings, you can purchase the lamp only for $109, or the entire lamp-cartridge module for $129. So you can save yourself $20 if you're handy. Remember to keep all fingerprints off the lamp glass element - this small amount of oil will weaken the glass, and cause premature failure of the lamp. In the event that you get a fingerprint on the lamp glass, erase it thoroughly with rubbing alcohol. Alternatively, one may prevent fingerprints with latex gloves (make sure you haven't an allergy to latex, though).

If the reason that the lamp blew turns out to have been a clogged Lamp-Cartridge Filter (once you have the Lamp-Cartridge out of the TV and in your hand, you'll be able to easily see the mesh filter), then place a regular PM (Preventative Maintenance) of this filter on your calendar.

There is a crckling noise when i turn the tv on and now there is no picture i hit the reset button and now there is sound but still no picture and after a short while couple mins the tv cuts off.


Your lamp has died. Refer to your manual on lamp replacement and remove the cartridge to confirm. then contact Mitsubishi for a replacement. They are the least expensive and the lamp is OEM.

Mitsubishi tv keeps turning off.


Hello there please check the following in your tv;

Reset the component settings. Most problems with Mitsubishi projection televisions can be resolved by resetting the television to factory settings

If this does not work then a full system reset should be performed on the control panel by pressing the System Reset button. The television will turn off and the green LED light will flash quickly for a minute. When the light stops flashing, the TV will turn on.

If that still doesn't work, then the projection lamp might need replacing and here is how to do that;

Ensure that the bulb is completely cooled and the television is unplugged. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the lamp compartment cover. Unscrew the lamp cartridge on the rear of the television. As opposed to the cover door, these screws do not actually come out of their chamber and simply loosen the lamp assembly. Remove the old cartridge and insert the new one. Secure the lamp with screws, then replace the cover and screw in tightly.

Please note that, Finger oils can cause the lamp to malfunction.

Projection lamps are powered by mercury. Wash hands thoroughly after replacing the projection bulb.

GOODLUCK

Mitsubishi wd-65831 one night worked fine next day nothin..


If you hear a whining noise, the odds are it is the color wheel, the bearings are bad in it and will need to be replaced as a whole unit, kinda pricey, my suggestion, sale the bulb and all boards in it and which should fetch about 400+ and invest in a new TV, a color wheel is pricey unless you can find a deal
