Hi, just a shared information about Mitsubishi HC7800D 3D devices compatibility. At time, no one, either Mitsubishi representative, has been able to give a very very easy information about that projector: which 3D players are compatible with this unit? Would it posible if contributors of this thread may inform which 3D Bluray player are using with this projector and which are the 3D configuration at their menu? At my experience, I'm using and working well Samsung BD-D8900 which is one the the few one than has at its menu the 3D to 3D mode (non auto only mode). To my surprise, at AUTO 3D mode the HC7800 does not recognize the 3D player unit. Further to that, I tested Sony brand either with the PS3 and the high rated BDP-S790 and both, with only AUTO 3D output mode (Sony does not have 3D mode output), the Mitsubishi didn't recognized them. Please note that I'm talking just only with Bluray 3D discs, not a normal 2D reproduction where the HC7800 works perfect with all kind of players. Does any one any experienced with other brands with full 3D compatibility at all? Which 3D players have 3D output mode (not only AUTO mode) that are compatible with the HC7800D?

It works fine with the PS3. The 3D mode can be left on auto and will work fine as long as 3D is enabled on the PS3. When watching Xfinity OnDemand, I often have to wait for the movie to start and manually change the 3D mode to SBS or T&B.

Thanks for the direction!
I have the adapter which i use with E Star glasses and it works great. If you read back in this thread, you'll find all the info you need on which glasses work, the schematic for the adapter, etc.

I was lucky enough to have another forum member make and sell me an adapter, but it looks pretty simple.

Hello to everybody,
I am a new owner of the HC7800.
After some days of watching, I got strange noise from the projector.
Here is a YouTube Video of that noise and how to prevent it:

Any idea how to fix it?

Has anyone had to buy a new bulb for this projector? I ordered one over a month ago on Amazon (link below) and just told the last day it was scheduled to arrive by that it's still not available and could be another month, if at all. First, I'm curious if I can just buy a bulb without the housing or if it's better to get the whole thing. And when buying, I've noticed it is very easy to get sucked into "original replacement" labels that aren't at all original equipment or even a premium substitute that may be equal to or better than the original. Any suggestions or information on any of these questions will be greatly appreciated!

Amazon item: Lutema VLT-HC7800LP-P02 Mitsubishi VLT-HC7800LP Replacement DLP/LCD Cinema Projector Lamp with OSRAM Inside


Also, I realized this isn't the classified section but if anyone is looking for the original 3D glasses, I have two pair of glasses that I've never used and would be willing to sell.

From my experience with a new lamp for my Panny 4000.
If the lamp is stamped with Osram, Philips, Ushio, etc. ( I think that's all of them _ there are only a small amount of manufacturers with the facilities to create these high pressure lamps) then they are OK.
If it's not stamped with anything, then don't but it.
The lamp from Amazon is OK, but the plastic (like mine for my Panny) was made of cheap plastic that really stank when it got warm.
I ended up using the original Panasonic housing.
When ordering just a bare bulb make sure it's stamped with the manufacturer name, make sure they have a return policy. Ask them first in an email _ save the paper trail and use your Visa card so if they lie to you, Visa will go to bat for you.
If you can get a genuine replacement, this will have the proper lamp and a quality housing and save allot of hassle.

thank you! one other question. The manual says that I can reset the timer by pressing <, >, and power at the same time. I did that to try and turn it on with the old lamp in it and it won't reset and power on. I never heard the lamp break, but remember the warning to replace it. Wondering if the Projector is bad or if I must put a new bulb in before the projector resets.

Which brings up the question, can I use the existing housing and just put a new bulb in it or is it dependent on whether the bulb inside the original housing broke? Or could it work like an HP printer cartridge that has a chip in it that the Projector won't allow you to use the original housing?

disregard. i found the [new] mitsubishi website (the old one said "we no longer manufacture projectors..." but then Google helped find the new one that or one that looks like a legitimate Mitsubishi Electric website that was something like mitsubishi-presentations dot com. It is only $50 more than the other ones at places like "purelandsupply" that I was referred to by the local boutique (The Sound Room) which had only one review on resellerratings that was a 1 out of 10. Yikes. Seems like every option out there is terrible so I'll just try to buy the original.

holding. breath. now.
