So I'm running into an issue here that hopefully someone can help on.
I've had the 82837 (the 2009 82" 3D ready DLP) for 3 years now. Was given a 3DC-1000 kit for Christmas. The adapter won't turn on, which leads me to believe it's just faulty out of the box, but I want to make sure there's not something I'm missing prior to dealing with the headache of a replacement.
My setup is thus:
A PS3 w/ latest updates
a Yamaha RX V-467 A/V receiver which I (painfully) managed to update the firmware on last night to allow 3D pass-through via HDMI
A DirecTV receiver
The PS3 and DirecTV were always routed through the Yamaha. What I did was take the HDMI cable that ran from the Yamaha to the TV, and put it in the HDMI in port of the 3DC adapter. I then took the HDMI cable Mitsubishi gave me with the 3DC and ran it from the HDMI out of the adapter to the HDMI 1 of the TV (where the original HDMI cable ran to). I've got an emitter cable running from the adapter to the TV as instructed, and the actual emitter running from the 3DC to the top of my TV. The emitter itself glows red, even if I unplug the adapter's power cord. I assume it's being powered by the HDMI cables. The adapter itself though, the power light won't come on. Is there some sort of failsafe by which the thing won't light up unless certain conditions are met? The owner's manual makes no mention of this. And if that is the case, what conditions can I implement to get this to happen?
The 3DC kit was brand new btw, not used.
