Question about Mitsubishi WD-57731 57" Projection HDTV
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.
