Question about Mitsubishi WD73727 73" HDTV

1 Answer

Color loss After watching the tv for a couple of hours, the screen starts to flicker with really fast images or squares or lines. Then the color gradually fades away and leaves a purple tone to every place there should be color, with the black and white areas remaining. If I shut off the set for 5 minutes, it will the work for about 15 or 20 before the same thing happens. This will all start over the next day with a 2 to 3 hour start up use. The bulb is 3 months old. Set is a 2005. Bill

    Bought brand new 73 inch mitsubishi - seems to work fine just on DirecTV channel. When I switch to DVD player - after a few minutes the screen flickers and then colors switch to pink pastel/black/white - can still see the image but its like watching an Andy Warhol flick. Switch back to TV and colors still off. Turn off the TV, rest a few minutes and then back on - colors are back to normal. Any thoughts?

    So, which capacitors need replacing on Mitsubishi P/N 938P019010 as this is $780-$1780 part depending on where you are going to buy it new or rebuilt? Can you describe the general area or the exact capacitor that needs replacing?

Your formatter or what is called the FMT board has bad capacitors on it.

Hi,
It seems color wheel problem in your tv that gets problem after some time and you hear high pitch noise along with picture flicker.
Color wheel need to be replaced to solve this issue. Required color wheel is available with PartStore.com (click to view image of part and price info) and it is job of qualified tv repairman because light engine will take apart for that.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

You have a bad video board. If you can find one used it is fairly easy to replace once you get into the TV itself. Your color guns could also be adding to this problem. I am not familiar with this television and its components so I dont know if you can replace one color gun at a time or if once one is shot then all three have to be replaced. That should be a start for you anyway.

Sony KP75HW40 unstable red. (not the usual problem)


I would suggest either the Focus block or the RED CRT drive board either one of those items could cause the symptom. A defective CRT could also, but a shorted CRT doesnt usually go back to being normal

Mitsubishi VS70707 Has developed subtle lines in picture


If they are faint white lines, they are called re-trace lines. They are caused when the current to the CRTs is too high. One way to check is to turn the brightness down. They should go away, but if the picture is too dark, you will need to turn down the "screen" control. This will take some handy work. If you are handy enough, take the grill off the front. Inside you will see a little black box, about 5 inches wide. there are 6 knobs on it, 2 for each color. One row is for focus (each) the other for screen (brightness). It is written on the part. The trick is to turn each of them down equally or risk having a slight tint of color. Really not hard at all, but requires the TV to be on to see. You shouldn't need to turn it but a fraction. Good luck.

Missing Color.


the color wheel may spin but if you hear noise when it spins it's bad. the jumper is used when replacing one type of color wheel for a nother type. so donot remove jumper unless you've replaced the color wheel and the picture is bad. if the color wheel is good replace the DMD board. if the DMD is not available replace the optical engine.

Smeared color image


Since this happens after the set warms up, I would check for bad solder connections or capacitors on the convergence board. If the problem was not readily apparent, then I would consider replacing the board, as I believe the replacement board has been upgraded from the original.
