A very common problem for this set has been bad electrolytic capacitors on the power supply. There are 2 in this model that are 1000uf at 35 volts that will commonly cause this. When they go bad they will normally be domed or mushroomed on top rather than be flat, so they should be easy to locate. If you can solder, they would be easy to change yourself. You can get the caps just about anywhere online for only a few dollars. A repair shop would probably charge around $100 to make this repair if it is indeed bad capacitors.

I have a mitsubishi 3d dlp tv model wd-73640. The lamp keeps burning out. We have replaced it 3 or 4 times in a year. Do you have any idea why this keeps happening?


These lamps should last around 5 years so I can understand your frustration.

Normally the lamp life is shortened by heat issues? Do you have enough space above, to the sides and back to let air flow in and out of the television? Are all fans working? Are the fans staying on for a while after you turn off the TV?

If you're using a power strip to turn off the TV the fans can't run when the television is turned off and it won't cool properly.

amount of use does not counter the fact the tv was 5 years old. a blub not used for 5 years can still burn out just like any other bulb. the only thing you can do is get it replaced.

My 52inch xbr4 tv is 2 years old. Intermitently over past 2 months, when I first turned it on, I get thin vertical lines and double imaging especially over left half of screen. After a few minutes it would...


I have the same issue. Bought the TV 1/08 and it started showing those exact symptoms about 3-4 months ago. It generally progresses and gets worse. You can try to fix it as it's some kind of TAB connector issue, or keep calling Sony so that the 52" owners of the XBR4 and 5 series get the extended warranty just like the 46" owners received for the same series. If enough of us keep calling, they'll have to act.

My sony wega keeps cutting off then coming back .


a couple of years old can be a long time:

has the TV been on 24\7

It's the amount of hours that matters..

electrolytic capacitors typically last 3000 to 5000 hours....

Special "long life" caps last close to 7000
but the caps in most consumer electronics, even broadcast equipment 3-5K hours.

Philips


if you bought it under one year ago then the retailer should be obliged to either replace it or repair it. I would look into this further, ask to speak to the manager or something casue when a tv switches itself off it indicates an error inside and turns itself off to prevent further damage.

Tv willnot turn on


Mine just did the same thing on the same day, same tv. we bought ours from Walmart exactly one year ago and after spending time on internet, i have found that alot of us with the same tv have had same problem with no avail from RCA company or walmart. i can't get help from anyone and am ready to scream. Good luck. Others have told me that they have had repair man out and said that it was a malfunction is some type board that he has seen over and over in this tv and he advised to just buy another tv because it was too costly and the problems were going to keep coming with this specific model
