Re: dead lamp

In you owner / operator manual you will find step by step
instructions and cautions as to how to handle the lamp replacement.A plastic door panel will be removable and then a
lock screw loosened and lamp assembly pulled out....Be sure
you purchase the lamp assembly complete, not just the lamp.

The picture is very dark

Sounds like your lamp/bulb is about ready to die. Here is a google shopping list for some replacements if you choose to DIY.,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=30e0fb8dc28dda8
Also if you need help on the DIY just come back. But a detailed reinstall can be found in the manual starting on page 75 which if you don't have can be found here: Also on that page is a part number and phone number to get replacement direct from Mitsubishi. Good Luck!

My tv is displaying a double picture.. i pulled the back off and covered the red lamp and the picture goes back to normal but no red in the colors.. pull my hand off the red lamp the picture doubles...

Problem cause is red convergence output chip failure that will be replaced to fix the issue.
If you have experience of electronics stuff repair and can replace parts in circuit board as it requires soldering work with proper tools then can replace convergence output IC in your tv by yourself.
Let me know if you have additional question.

The problem is that your lamp has expired, You need to either get in touch with the brands authorised repair agent and they can order and replace lamp( at a cost) or you can replace the lamp yourself. Also make sure you know how to rest the lamp use hours after replacing the lamp. Good luck.
