We have sound but no picture from our WD62530

you could have a ballast that has gone bad especiallyif it takes the bulb a long time to brighten up. look in the front of the set and see if the bulb indicator light tells to replace bulb or lamp. then you could try to reset the tv just in case this could unset an improper setting. the correct way to reset would be found in the user manual.

Hello. I have a Mitsubishi WD-65732. We are experiencing TV shutdowns about once every two weeks. Also, unless it it my imagination, the picture seems to dim/brighten depending upon other things on...

I've suspect that your bulb has near to its end thats why you've encountered the subsequent shutdown and picture problem. This is the very common symptom of a faulty bulb. But since you've still watching your tv, this is not totally defective. I've advice you to look for a qualified technician to check the condition of the bulb before replacing with new one.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Picture suddenly dimmed and i have not had the t.v. for 7 months with limited use. I checked all the settings and nothing seems to brighten the picture. One instant the the picture was great. I come home...

It could be the lamp, they have an approximate 1 year life depending on conditions. If you bought the TV new, it has a 1 year warranty and labor you might want to contact warranty support. They will send you a new lamp.

To Receive a Replacement Lamp Under Warranty
Call (800) 553-7278. Please have model number, serial number, and TV purchase date available.
Important: All lamps replaced under warranty must be returned to Mitsubishi where they will be inspected for defect

Appendix C of the manual describes how to change the lamp. Handle with care (avoid fingerprints on the new lamp). Make sure the TV is off for at least an hour before starting.

I hope this helps.

Hi olchap

your tv is projection, maby the heat is causing the bulbs to brighten and dim, you should try to keep the room its in fairly cold or try and have the bulbs replaced to ones that are not as strong,

Picture problem

I have an older Mitsibutishi 52" HD 1080. I recently upgraded my cable box to DirecTV HDTV. When I change to format to view in 1080 the TV goes from full screen to what seems to be wide screen with a black bar on the top and bottom. If I change the format to 480p I get a full screen; but the picture has a "redish tint" over it as if looking through sunglasses...I tried everything in my TV manual even call the cable company. Any suggestions?

Your CRT coolant needs to be changed. Thats whats giving you the dim picture. You can also clean the projection mirror on the inside this often helps. But the coolant will need to be changed to get back the bright crisp picture. Hope this helps.

Problems with brightness on the hitachi 50v810

Yes, they dim as they age, and you've done well to get 3 years out of one.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy.
