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.

SOURCE: HEARD LOUD POP NOISE DLP TV DOES NOT WORK

Following up on my Feb 7 post. My new lamp arrived, and I replaced it and it works great. The old lamp had many shards of glass come out of it. It was tore up. I saved some money buy purchasing just the lamp and not the cartridge. It's a little bit more work to take apart, but saves money. Mitsubishi wanted $289 for the lamp replacement kit. I got a lamp for $114. TV is working just fine now!

I have a Mitsubishi 65inch tv, Model WD-60735. I heard a loud pop noise, like if something burst inside. Then the screen went black but I can still hear sound. Shortly after the sound went out. I can hear...


Check your lamp. This is a common problem in projections. Sometimes there is a lamp door and two screws holding it in. you can physically see if it is bad. itll be shattered or have rings aorund it. anything that doesnt look right. If your lamp is fine then you may have blown a fuse or diode or ic chip..theres really a lot to go wrong. I would then take it to a repair shop.

Please take the time to rate. Thanks:]

I turned the TV on and heard a pop. I now have a black screen. Nothing works. The Timer light is green when on but not the power light


Hi:
This is an indiccation that your lamp has failed, replace the lamp and you will be good to go, If you heard a pop this was the lamp shattering in its enclosure. Just replace you lamp.

It sounds like your TV lamp popped this lamps are rated for 6000-8000 life hours witch is a average time of 2-4 years take the lamp out I'm sure you will see broken glass inside the lamp I found the lamp you need

Heard a big popping sound then the screen went black and the red light when on


Hi
A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

T.v. clicking and wont turn on..


Hello:

The loud pop you heard is usually indicative of a failed lamp. The clicking noise you hear is likely the ballast trying to turn the lamp on.

If you need assistance with a new lamp, please feel free to contact us at www.dlplampsource.com or 866-764-5822.
