Re: Mitsubishi wd73833 shadow

Hello, You are on the right path in my opinion, when I get this after a lamp exchange its usually something inside (the projector light engine) is miss aligned.

Hey S,



Yeah he texted me something likewise, and do not worry if the original CW pops up on eBay or Amazon etc... Angel will find it!



Um well to properly diagnose the TV would have to come on, but since it cycles then I think it might just be the LED that went out..

Re: Hitachi 70VS810 going out

You can always order one from an OEM seller like discount-merchant.com and if it does not work (make sure its a Philips, it should be around that price). Hint, if this doesn't solve your problem once received and installed call them up (800-281-8860) and ask for an RA# to return this for a refund ;)

Well from recent experience I want to say make SURE the lamp connector is plugged in all the way.

At this point I would try a new ballast, but first: how long have you had yo...
