On my WD-60C9 60 DLP HDTV the picture is really dark, colors are still ok but the entire picture is dark


Have you tried changing the brightness and contrast with the picture controls? If that doesn't solve the problem, it's possible the lamp box and lenses in front of the bulb need cleaning.

Go to your menu and choose picture. See if your settings are normal or if the brightness is turned down. If it isn't then it's a problem with the T.V.

bjac,

You are correct about lamps working or not, but that is the extremes. Over the course of operation all lamps lose brightness as the hours add up. All lamps will lose their brightness over time.

Typically lamps only last at best 6000 to 8000 hours. That is not long if the unit is used most of the day everyday. In addition the cheaper the quality of the lamp, cost and manufacture, the quicker they go down hill.

Assuming that you have a low quality lamp what you are experiencing is normal. You may be able to improve the brightness and clarity of the picture by cleaning the lenses, mirrors and screen. I have a tip at

This tip is labeled projection tv but is also appropriate for cleaning an LCD or DLP unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

The overall picture is not bright like it use to be. like about half the brightness. picture is fine just not bright


suggest replacing the lamp. when the lamps are reaching the end of their life the tv will take a long time to show a picture and you may see a drop in brightness. part number 915P061010 i would really suggest getting a mitsubishi original lamp there are alot of generics out there and they are junk. good luck

Replaced wd-62525 lamp, picture dim


Cleaning the mirrors will not increase the brightness much. I would double check the lamp setting in the Menu and also the setting of the picture and brightness settings. Many times these are adjustable independently for different inputs. Besides this, I would look at the Ballast and or the Power Supply to cause the problem. I would recommend a professional to look at it if it is not correctable from the Main Menu of the set.
Hope this helps,

Replacement lamp not bright


as i previously posted, my picture was dim, muddy looking after replacing lamp with osram lamp. i fixed mine by taking the screen off and cleaning the small mirror. it had a thick layer of dust on it, cleaned with a microfiber cloth. no water, no glass cleaners. i also used a very fine new small paint brush and dusted the projector lens which also had a dust film. brightness, contrast and clarity returned!

Why does picture brightness change up and down on LP70.


Hi there

Sounds like the lamp is going , but it could be the Ballast as well ( lamp's powersupply ) Rather have a certified technician look at.

Usually a bad lamp. If the lamp you replaced is new, then cleaning the internal mirrors (especially the small triangular one) and clean the projector assembly as well. The lamp ballast supply may be weak as well, but I seldom see this.
