OK, folks, here's the deal:

TV: Mitsubishi 60638 DLP 3D HDTV
Bluray: Samsung BD6800 3D
Glasses: 3Active DLP Link

I'm trying desperately to get 3D working for my daughter for Christmas. We got the new 3D Finding Nemo Bluray disk. We enabled the 3D on the TV and the DLP Link. When we put the Bluray in, it goes to the language selection screen. Once we select English, it goes to a screen that says we do not have a compatible Bluray display or player and that we need to load the disc into a complatible player or display or update our firmware.

I've put the latest 12.02 firware update on the TV and the last Samsung update was January of this year and there's nothing else out there. Mitsubishi is saying it's the Bluray's problem and of course Samsung is saying it's Mitsubishi's problem.

Is there any hope of getting this to work or should I just send everything back for a refund?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have the same bluray player. Are you using an HDMI cable from the bluray player to the TV? because this is needed for 3d.

Is it possible that I might need an emitter for this to work even though it says I don't?

For 3D using DLP link glasses you don't need an emitter the 3d syncs using light flashes on the screen. The tv does have a vesa port for an external emitter for IR glasses, but that's not necessary. I would mess around with some of the options in the menu of the tv as I doubt it would be the bluray player as long as you have all the 3d options turned on in the samsung menu.

after looking at your model and that it was made in 2010 I think you need an adapter for 3d http://mitsubishi-tv.com/asset/file/owners_guide/3DC-1000_IB.pdf

or http://mitsubishi-tv.com/accessory/3DA-1 your model is listed as model 638

maybe someone can verify this for me. Thses adapter units are becoming harder and harder to find and I've seen them go from $100 to $300 certain models 738, 838 and tv's of 2011 and 2012 didn't need the adapter. If you already have DLP link glasses all you would need is the 3da-1 adapter to get you going.

I bought a Mitsubishi about 5 months ago, and used this, and the Mitsubishi glasses. Do more research though please, I'm just tossing another item out there that worked for me. It was a current Laservue, which I didn't need it because the emitter was built in ( I didn't do all my research... ) but I do know after disabling the internal emitter, this one worked as an external.

That's just an IR emitter which is an option, but he doesn't need it as he's using DLP-link and has DLP-link glasses. He needs the Mitsubishi 3DA-1 3d adpater to convert the signal coming from the 3d bluray player to a signal the tv can accept. The 3DA-1 is very hard to find and the few that I've seen today were like $300-$400 these units were only $100 new, but since Mitsubishi discontinued this unit and Dlp tv's the price on the 3DA1-1 has sky rocketed.

Oops, sorry. Thanks for the clarification. I don't want to point someone the wrong way. This 3D stuff and rattle the brain and wallet...

I hope this helps Tom, but the best solution I can find for you is to use a Panasonic bluray player that outputs checkerboard no other bluray player I know of has an option to output checkerboard which is the signal your tv uses for 3d and it also has a built in 2d to 3d converter and wifi and can be purchased reburb for $79 with this you won't need the expensive 3DA-1 adapter.

no problem, I went through the same thing when I was setting up 3d on my Optoma projector.

You all seem to be correct: the OP has a 3D TV that only accepts checkerboard. He needs either a new Blu-ray player that outputs checkerboard 3D, or to find an elusive 3DA-1 adapter to convert the multiple 3D formats out there to checkerboard. Good luck finding a 3DA-1 adapter these days for under $300.

Note: you will only be able to play 3D blu-ray movies on your set without the adapter. It is worth looking around to find the adapter in order to play 3D games with a PS3 and to watch cable TV shows in 3D.

+1!!!

He could get a Panny 3D bluray player much easier and cheaper than trying to find an adapter.
