Re: green lamp/bulb

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence

Have a mitsub. WD-73734 working fine this morning with white and black dots - replaced the chip and now the tv won't turn on, green light blinks raptly then the lamp light starts to blinks red/orange

Somehow--the lamp is not firing. Before you go get another bulb--check ALL of your work, and make SURE no connectors to the ballast have been left off or pinched somehow. It is easy to do this. Also, make sure the lamp door switch is making proper contact with the tab on the lamp door. You have already fixed a real problem with this set--do NOT give up so easily now!! ALso--make sure all fans are running. If ANY do not run--it WILL shut down. ANd make sure the color wheel connector has not come loose or been damaged somehow (this will be between the engine and the lamp area--likely have a "hump " raised in the light tunnel betwen the lamp and the engine--this is where the CW is). Even IF the ballast died (NOT likely at all), you can find one on ebay for under 100---and this set IS WORTH the repair. You will NOT be satisfied with some crappy flat-panel as a replacement.

Green screen

inside the light engine there is a red a green and a blue glass color filter.The heat from the lamp causes the color to burn off the glass.You need new filters .One is red one is blue and one is green.The lcd itself doesnt make the color,it is a black and white device.The colr comes from light shining through colored glass

Turns green and shuts off

I had an electrician come over. He pulled out the bulb that was dead (for me it was the color that was flashing before it would turn off) and now I have a blue and green TV with no red. He said that the only way to fix it is to replace the red lamp with a new one.

Lamp works, but it says to replace it.

You are not going to believe this one. My TV had the solid red light took it out inspected the bulb noticed on top where the the wire feeds through there was a black mark I carefully wiped the black off cleaned my filter stuck the bulb back in and its working like new again. Color is brighter than ever. Also left TV unplugged for 1/2 not sure how long it will last but will enjoy as long as it works. Others might want to give this a try before spending hundres of dollars that may not be necessary.

Green Tint on half of the screen

This is most likely a defect in the optical unit (about $1500.00 part). If out of warranty probably will just have to live with it. Those op units are also hard to get.

Color Lamp

It is not as simple to replace as a bulb. This is a picture tube, and for a novice, no play it safe and have a tech have a look first. Just because the picture tube does not light up, does not mean the tube is bad. There could be several things in the solid state circuits that could cause this problem. Good Luck
