MY Mitsubishi DLP is experiencing problems, two different ones. 1. on all the channels, (and dvds) blue specs go in and out (like blow snow) as if the whole picture is not coming in correctly. They are tiny specs only about a 1/4 inch big probably, but theres probably a few dozensthat come in at a time, they come in and out over and over again while you watch tv.
#2 problem is i see waves on the HD channels. Its like the picture has waves going up and down (horizontal lines) but this only happens on the HD channels.
I had the cable company come out and change the boxes, wires, etc. but its obviously a TV problem since its happening on DVDs, and playstation also.

Distoritions like the symptoms you're describing are probably a defective light engine, Mitsubishi p/n#939p977020
If you go to price a new L/E they're approximately $975.00 and $300.00 of that is core that you get back when you return the defective one.
This is NOT a replacement for the less than skilled either. Find a good reputable shop and have them do the job. If you get someone less than skilled you could end-up damaging the new L/E or something else like the color wheel.
If you're not sure where to begin looking for a reputable shop I would suggest calling NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) and asking them for a referral to one of their member shops in your area.

Can you call up the settings menu? Check to see if the ANT-1, DVD, and other ports are properly activated. You may need to re-scan for channels and to activate the HDMI ports for your other devices. Regards.
I suspect you have a DLP TV. The problem is the DLP chip. The mirrors are stuck and the DLP chip needs replacement. Mitsubishi does not make a 72" TV so that is why I suspect its a DLP type. It is not user repairable and there is no trick to get around it. You need a repair person or a new TV. (get a new TV trust me)
Mitsubishi that the one,who u should contact.Talk to them make some kind of deal with them to help u to do a repairing or replace the tv Light Engine Projection Block.That the tv problems,this problems a design flaw on the tv Light Projection Egine Block the IC they put in that causes of this white spots are showing up will continue showing up more and more white dots.It will not stops.
Hello, There is a software update that is available for some Mitsubishi dlp models. The wd-65c9 is one of them. When I experienced your problem, I went to the website, downloaded the update, and installed it on my tv and boom, its fixed. It's super easy, free, and takes a few minutes.
I have the same problem with my tv, my tv tech said mitsubishi knows of the problem and knows how to fix it, but it would cost me 700.00 plus his labor to take out the chassis and send it in to mitsubishi, plus I would be without a tv for up to a month. this is b.s.
i have the same tv i got it for free from my work it was a return there's no picture or sound but the green light blinks on the timer light i took it to a tv repair place ive researched the problem alot most forums said it would be the dm module or the capacitors on it but this guy is sayn its not that and its not the lamp but it could be the color wheel or some balance thing he was bein an a hole about it i paid for a diagnostic and he said hes not gonna look at anymore cuz i dont sound interested in payn what he says MIGHT be the problem and i dont want to get screwed for a bunch of money any tips??? thank you
