While watching our 73" Mitsubishi WD-73732 model tv , the screen will sometimes go black on the left side of the screen......we usually turn the tv off and wait a few minutes then turn it back on to a full picture again........we are experiencing other problems with the audio off the picture, and sometimes on our local channel we loose the audio completly,,and we think this is due to our outside dish, but we believe the left side screen black out is something wrong with the tv....

Re: Half of the screen goes black
The light engine is defective and needs to be changed..this set is not that old..contact mitsubishi customer relations to see about having it done under a customer accomodation, as they have had a lot of problems with the engines

It could be a bad lamp but I've run into many of these TVs with bad color wheel assemblies. Also, if you are getting a dialog box coming up with these words," airflow blocked, TV will shutdown ..." that's a defective thermal fuse.
This is a job for a mitsubishi authorized service center. A tech can disassemble the light engine and confirm that the wheel is the problem. If you're still in warranty, great. If you're only recently out of warranty, call mitsubishi for assistance. Remember that persistance pays off when dealing with large corporations. You very seldom get what you're looking for on the first call or from the first person you speak to.
