click on the operating instructions link as this is a PDF version of the manual that came with the television. look at pages 13 - 16. this will help you replace the lamp. as a side note, yes you do have to pull on the front cover. don't be intimidated as it will come off with a little applied pressure.

Mitsubishi wd65736 has a dark bar across top screen

If the old lamp still works, I would try it and check results... it may be dim, but if the dark bar is gone then the new lamp (or the lamp housing) is either defective or misaligned. On the Mitsu WD65736 there are two options for lamp replacement, either (1) you can just replace the lamp itself or (2) for just a few dollars more you can obtain a complete lamp cartridge (module) with the lamp already installed. I recommend the latter method because you must not *ever* touch the lamp bulb with your bare fingers, as to do so will significantly shorten the life of the new lamp.
Also try pulling out the lamp module and inspect it as well as where it plugs in on the back of the TV.

Why did you change the chip? If you got the replacement chip the legal way (direct from Mitsubishi parts) I would get on the phone with them. Mitsu generally won't send out a replacement flash chip unless you open a repair ticket with them for a known/documented problem for which they have a patch. Note well that they will otherwise *NOT* give you the latest firmware without a reason. Simply wanting to have the latest & greatest is not considered a valid reason. On the other hand, if someone shared their flash ram with you and you burned your own chip, then you are on your own. Just the act of inserting the new chip will cause it to download the new image from the chip and then automatically erase the chip Hopefully you backed up your original flash chip and can go back to the original firmware. FWIW, the **only** Mitsu firmware patch I'm aware of for this particular model had something to do with being unable to pair it with a cable card.

If all else fails, there is a very extensive (thousands of posts) on AVSFORUM dot com for the Mitsubishi WD series. Search for your model. One of the posters there even did a full documentation along with pictures showing how to disassemble & clean the lense assy. Don't bother asking for firmware there as it is a violation of avs forum board ethics for any member to post links to or share copyrighted firmware. Good luck!!!

One year to the date television stopped working ,,, tv would start blinking and could hear but not see

This happened to me also. I just made the deadline to receive a replacement lamp from Vivitek by 2 days, because of the warranty. If not, I would have had to pay $250. This happened in 2009. My replacement went out in Dec, 2010 and I can't find a replacement anywhere. Order a new lamp, hope this works.

It keeps shutting off. Anywhere from 2 or 3 times

Could be several things. First replace lamp.Remove lamp door and put it back on making sure tab on door presses door switch downward when closed. Can you heard spinning noise from front. Bad color wheel will cause shutdown. Look at big cap on ballast . iff swollen replace lamp, ballast and power board. Is voltage to ballast from power board below 350 volts if so replace power board. hope this helps. Most common are lamp and door switch in up position rather than downward .

No screen at all, does not come on.

If you haven't replaced the lamp yet, that is the first thing to try. Its not hard to do at all.

You can get the lamp just about anywhere on the web.
Here is a link to one site

Here is the procedure for replacing the lamp.

Unplug the unit from the wall and wait for all the lights to stop blinking. Ensure that the lamp and the area around the lamp has cooled.
Remove the front cover of the set. You should be able to see the lamp door at this time, loosen the screw and remove the door. You will now have access to the lamp, loosen the lamp screws and remove the lamp cartridge. Reverse the above process and you should be back in business.

For the full instructions and how to reset the lamp timer go to the following site

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Samsung dlp ( no picture ) , front powerbutton displays lamp, and stand by temp

I can't verify the code without knowing hte model number, but if you have the owner's manual, the code should be listed there. Usually this is an indication that the lamp is bad. Post the model number and I will verify this.
