Color/Pic problems Mits WD-65731

Recently, my TV will randomly start flickering and the color gets distorted, almost looks like a strobe light. Does anyone know what this could be? Lamp? Light engine or wheel? I want to get an idea before I start calling local techs. Already spoke to Mitsubishi and only could recommend local techs. I want to get as much info as possible before I call local techs. I feel like they will charge me to look at the TV but won't be able to fix it. Basically am anticipating aggravation on trying to fix the TV. How about pricing? Anyone have an idea on how much these parts are? I'm already aware about how much the lamp is, but am concerned about how much these other parts? Thanks in advance for any info

    Our TV is doing the same as yours. Along with this, skin tones are blue. Looks like watching the Smurfs. Called Mits. Got the same, just gave me the number to a local service rep. We've only had ours a year and a half.

It sounds as though there is a problem on the main board and yes,it will be expensive to repair.i would guess between 400 to 600 possibly more depending on how much damage is on the main board. i know this isnt what you want to hear but i have a friend that has a tv repair shop and i know he gets big money for repairs on big screens.

After about 30-60 minutes TV starts to hum and picture gets distorted, could this be the color wheel...???


Sounds like a sync problem due to color wheel speed. clean and lubricate color wheel motor with tiny amount of Z-Max lubricant (liquid Buckey balls, available at Wal-Mart), on each bearing. make sure wheel is free-wheeling and turns easily. Should cure problem. If the color wheel is in good shape, there is a power supply problem, which may be due to dried out electrolytic capacitors or a regulator that's failing. Troubleshooting or controller board replacement may be needed. Regards.

Replaced lamp on my Mitsubishi 82 in dlp. after 15 minutes pic started to flicker losing color. was advised to also change lamp ballast, did that but still flickers with new lamp. put old lamp back in tv...


When you put the old lamp back in did the picture look OK? If so why did you replace to begin with? Yes, there are some poorly manufactured lamps out there, where did you obtain the replacement? Was it true OEM?

Hi:
This sound is an indication that the color wheel is faulty in the light engine, with mits sets you must replace the entire optics engine. You can purchased used light engines or have your sent in for repair. Try this site for rebuilt engines www.tristatemodule.com

Tv started to shut off here and there, then the


Hi,samsung has 3 major failures.The 1st one is the lamp, which averages 6000-8000 hrs 2-4 yrs.When it's about to go bad it shuts off and on or image won't come at all.You can find your part here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=BP9601472A Another problem that causes tv to shut off is the ballast,which is the board that powers the lamp.It makes clicking sounds and will cause pic to flicker.The other problem is the color wheel .The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.Have a bless one!

Lamp light on front of tv stays on, it is amber in color


Hi,do you mean tv is showing an amber picture? If you do,it could be an issue with the color wheel or dmd board.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.This is how the DMD works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

TV has distortion very small on top and bottom which will flicker


This tv has two common problems:
in the power supply (set does distotions and shakes a lot etc very unstable until the set cannot work at all).
powerfully color gets back with a deep clean in the reflexion area. I'm sorry this job is for a technician, The set is so intricate for those two problems that any bad movement in this precision job could send the tv straight to wherever is bad.

Distorted colors on my mitsubishi wd-73727


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

1. Look at the new lamp. make sure it still looks good. not broken with little glass pieaces in it. 2. When you turn on the tv, put your ear to the lower back part of the tv near the middle. Listen for the start up of the color wheel (a low high pitch sound only at the start up of the motor). If this is good you will here a ticking sound only if the lamp dose not light.

Now with all this info. If the lamp lights (as seen from the back of the set) and goes out after a few seconds and you did not here the color wheel spin up, the color wheel is bad.

If you here the color wheel spin up and no ticking sound, the Ballast is bad.

The ballast part no. 939P978010

The color wheel is not avialable from Mits. You will have to replaced the light engine. It cost to much. Just buy a new tv.
