Question about Mitsubishi WD-C657 65" HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Mitsubishi WD-C657 with white spots all over it, its just over 2 years old (25months). I called Mitsubishi and they do not have a authorized tech in my area. They need an estimate before they can decide if they will help me or not......Does anyone know what it is and how much its going to cost????

I have the same tv with the same problem and have found it to be the dmd chip which controls the mirrors. Once the chip begins to go it just gets worse and eventually will have to be replaced. Unfortunately you can't just go out and buy one and replace it yourself. It is mounted on the light engine circuit board and I got an estimate on the light engine from an authorized service representative and the cost for the part alone is about $900.00. The white spots are when the mirrors get stuck in the on position and if they get stuck in the off position they display a black dot, which I also have some of them. In a month's time my tv has gone from no dots to over 100 now. I have been searching to see if there is anyone who repairs the light engines instead of buying a new one, as this would surely be cheaper and I found a company that does this, but they will not do business with consumers only repair services. They are Hong Video Technologies, so if anyone out there knows how to get these engines refurbished and what it would cost, we both would be very appreciative.
Thanks

    I found a vendor in texas, as my TV is doing the same. I see stars all over my tv. if you go on ebay and type in the model number with light engine his shop comes up I think the refurbished ones are $359 and you can get credit for your old one

White dots on screen


I developed white spots on the screen of my Mitsubishi WD-57734 in increasing numbers over days and weeks. I called a repair service who quoted me $1500 to replace the light engine. He suggested I call Mitsubishi Customer relations at 800-332-2119 option 5 which i did. To make a long story short after several conversations with them they agreed to replace the part for free if I picked up the labor (Would have been less conversations if I had the original purchase receipt). Instead of $1500 I paid $250. The tv was only 3.5 years old. Perseverance paid off.

White spots on screen Need DMD chip for Mitsubishi WD-C657 DLP


This is something of an urban myth....The "DMD chip" is actually the LCD display IC for the set; yes I have seen some listed on EBAY---still a myth----they are replaced (when a light engine is rebuilt in a space age lab or environment) under exacting conditions----if positioned a micron off in any direction picture will be tilted in some way---this is also not like changing spark plugs in a car, if you have a optical engine issue like spots etc, either get a rebuilt engine from Mitsubishi or buy a new set.

They usually require some parts for old engine (mounting brackets etc) be installed on new or rebuilt engine.

I did see the "chip" for another model listed on ebay today.(100.00 PLUS)

I understand the engine is expensive, I replaced a lot of them when the sets were in warranty---more Mitsubishi than any other brand with Samsung a distant second.

I am sure Mitsubishi does not offer the part for sale--they want to sell a tested rebuilt engine only.

I wish you luck but have little hope you will find a "part" other than the whole engine.

I have white spots and black spots on right side of Mitsubishi WD-C657. I've done research online, and have heard its the dlp chip. Is that true, and if so, is it something that I can replace myself,...


This tv is it the DLP projection light engine block main board itself is the problems,not easily to go into the tv itself and replacing the IC chip itself.Must take out many mechanical parts to get u the Light engine block it self.U can replaced IC but somethime the IC chip it replaced,will not solved the problems,because the tv problems now the it is spreading and going on beyond the IC chip itself.If want to keep this tv very exspensive repair,i would reconmend hire a bound qualify tv tech replaced the whole Light projection block itself,but first call Mitsubishi for some kind of deal,they might help with the repair amount cost.

Little white spots appearing. Started with one now have 8. They look like little stars. TV is only 2-years old


most likely a problem with the optical engine. that tv is a DLP and it uses a DMD device that is made by texas instruments that has millions of tiny mirrors on the face that move independantly and the white spots are going to be stuck mirrors that are not moving. suggest calling mitsubishi customer support for possible repair accomodation. that repair depending on the labor would be around $1500.00 total parts cost is around $1100.00. mitsubishi customer support 1-800-332-2119
