Televisions covered: Mitsubishi DLP High-Definition Televisions:
C Series: WD-60C8, WD-65C8, WD-73C8

Here's an online version of your televison's (94 page) "Owner's Guide":

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

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:

Note that with the 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.

I need a new Lamp. what is the parts number for a mitsubishi rear projection model number VS 50501

in VS models there is no such a thing as a lamp. Your TV have 3 CRT tubes (picture tubes) each of them dedicated to Green, Red and Blue part of image accordingly.
It is not the part that you can easy replace by yourself and it cost new around $600 and just to refurbish existing one around $320.
But you have to refurbish all three of them at the same time. So we are talking about $1000 just for parts, not to mention enormous effort to align everything back together.
If you have bad CRT in your TV - I would advise just to trash it and invest in new one.
Lamp is replaceable in DLP projection Mitsubishi TV and it is next generation of TV"s. Model number starts with: "WD".
If you still insist on part number - I need to know what color of CRT you need - they have different part numbers.
Best regards

Are you a Quailified Technician ? Because this repair is not for the novice. The best thing I can tell you is contact a Mitsubishi Authorized repair center or tell me what area you live in and I can find one for you. cost is 250-350 to repair.

The capacitors on your DM Board need replacing.

This is an extremely common problem with Mitsubishi tvs old and new. It can be fixed easily and cheaply for those willing to use their hands.

Refer to this guide to replace the capacitors on your DM Power Circuit Board part # 935C9860. You could also have someone else do it for you for $100

Guide for DIY repair:

That fixes the problem most of the time.

After replacing capacitors is you still get green light try replacing the EEprom. EEprom board also known as the E2P board is part number 935C978001

This problem is covered under the mitsubishi extended warranty for the 73" dlp. I would try contacting them to see if they will cover it. Not sure how they will handel it because you bought it second hand. If mitsubishi will not cover the repair the first thing you need to try is removing and re-seating the dvi cable between the o-block and the chassis inside the tv. mitsu claims this to solve the problem sometimes but i myself have never had it work. the only other thing to do is to replace the optical block assy. this is an expensive part. let me know if you have more questions!
