Hello There!!!!!!
Well this is gonna take some work... First thing to start with is...

When you replace the bulb/s -does the bulb actually illuminate?

If you shine a very bright light into the surface of the screen can you see a faint image of whats on the set?

Do you get sound?

If the bulb is illuminating, is it blowing soon after?

Did the set return to normal operation after replacing the bulb the first time?

Side Note-Never touch a high power bulb glass enclosure because you can leave oils and moister that lesson the life of the bulb or make it more prone to blowing. I have no facts to support this note beside my own experiences but this is a known "thing".
Questions? Just ask. Mr.Mike

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WD- 73737 73 in. Screen if dim or dark. Changed contrast, brightness, and restored default settings but that didn't work. Help?

I am not sure about your model but a call to Mitsubishi to ask if the set has one or two mirrors would offer a possible explanation---the ones with two mirrors have a small one at the bottom--it gets coated with dust and brightness drops up to 75 percent----other possible reason is the lamp may be nearing the end of its life.

I would have Mitsubishi look to see if this model uses the two mirrors--if that is the case cleaning will cure this--if you find it has two mirrors I can tell you what is involved--on Vacation but do look here--let me know what you find.

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.

Turned on tv, no picture, only sound


the problem is likely the projection lamp .. you can replace that yourself if you are handy .. you must unplug the set and make sure everything is cool ...avoid getting finger prints on the new lamp ...here are a few places where you can get a new lamp ... you can also see what it looks like on this site ...

the lamp is likely in a cubby in the back of the set (where you used to see the bright light) ...

the lamp is mounted in a cage ... you can get the lamp already mounted in a new cage from here ...

......it costs more mounted but its easier to change and you will need a new cage if yours is damaged .. from the site above you can see what the cage looks like with the lamp already mounted ..

your lamp is a model 915p049010 ... that is available thru amazon at a good price here:.(includes cage)........

Buzzing noise from Mitsubishi DLP WD-52327 after replacing bulb


Did your replace lamp come on the screen or did you lose picture? Just because the LED indicator suggest replace lamp it doesn't mean it needs it. If your pix was dull or loss of brightness then replace it, if not then just reset your lamp timer, check your owners manual for instructions.
