Question about Mitsubishi WD-57731 57" Projection HDTV

Mitsubishi slim DLP, keep or sell? can't decide

Hi there. I have a 57" slim DLP from mitsubishi that i bought new in august 07, ( i THINK the model is WD-57731) ... and i have 3 months remaining on my factory warranty. I have had TWO major problems already with the TV in only 9 months and both times, circuit city repair techs have been sent out to replace "bad" parts. The first was a blinking green light one day after work after it hadn't been turned on that day at all, and it would not turn on, later described to have been due to a short in a "digital module", (which required a part be ordered and some soldering in my house once it finally arrived) and the second part that failed just last week was a "Thermistor" "giving bad information" the guy told me, causing the "tv will shut down in a few seconds please check if air flow is blocked" error. The more i read online, the more horror stories i find about mitsubishi owners getting screwed while having problems out of warranty. My confidence in mitsu's tv technology is dropping fast and i am considering either selling this tv while under warranty for a more reliable brand, or buying an extended warranty, which would not be cheap, and from what i read does not really guarantee anything. (many loopholes, and basically these are service contracts not legally considered extended warranties, according to about.com) What would you do if you were me? Thanks for your time.

That problem with the "AIRFLOW Blocked" is now covered by Mitsubishi (parts & labor) Contact a good repair shop and they should fix it free. I had that same problem the tech came out and fixed it in about 30min.

I have white and black spots on my 65in hd1080p what is it tv is on 2 years old


Hi, I have a mitsubishi 65" DLP model # 65733 that I bought in December 2007 brand new, about six months ago I started spoting white dots on my screen that started blinking and then became permanent, thinking is was dust I cleaned everything inside with compressed air without success.
The stars multiply daily to a point that it was intolerable to watch anything with all the white stars and a few black ones that showed up.
We called mitsubishi but got no where, I was out of warranty. (they still deny having a problem with their DLP's)

I had a service tech inspect the tv and was told it could run about $800 to $1000 to replace the light engine with refurbished parts with 90 day warranties.

Researching on line I came across a DLP chip that is compatible with several mitsubishi and samsung models, so I decided to chance it, and replace just the DMD chip before we trash the tv, it was unthinkable to pay $800 to repair a tv that we could buy now for under $900.
Thanks God the "gamble" paid out and the problem got solve with just $150 DLP chip in about 15 minutes of my time.
If you are not mechanically nor electronically inclined, I recommend you use a technician for the installation, but don't let anyone tell you you need to replace the whole light engine, it is a ripoff.
If your problem is just white or black dots on the screen that do not move.......this will solve your problem!!

P.S. Hope this will help you and for the record..... "I will never buy a mitsubishi product again".

I replaced the bulb on my mitsubishi DLP WD-57732 57 in DLP TV. A few months later a white hazeappeared on the screen.


The problem seems to be a malfunctioning DMD module. Do you still have sound when this haze appears? Are all the other controls such as volume up/down, channel up/down operational?

LAMP JUST WENT OUT


I have a 57" DLP and have replaced the bulb 3 times in 2&1/2 years. I'm not possitive but I think I have 6-800 hrs on it total. Mitsubishi claims it a part they expect to go out, but the told me they typically last about ten yrs. If you have proof of purchase they will send you a new one for free, otherwise it'll cost you about $150 on ebay.

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV


If your Mitsubishi TV has white spots in the picture , you can call Mitsubishi @ 1-800-332-2119 and request a free DLP Chip to fix the problem. They will send the New DLP Chip at no charge to a TV Tech in your area to install it for $200 flat rate. That is about a $250 savings if you had to pay for the chip . Call them with your TV's Model number and serial number and let them know when and where you bought the TV.
It saved me some hard earned money and now my TV is like New !

My Mitsubishi tv will not turn on.


If you have the owner's manual, you will find that the blinking light is an indicator that the lamp or fan is the problem. I'm not sure of your model number. Can you confirm that model please? If you no longer have the manual, once you confirm the model number, I can look up the code for you. Given its age, I would suspect that the lamp needs to be replaced.

Please post the model number and I will confirm.

Thanks,
Dan
