Sorry I thought you had your lamp light on. The hours on the lamp will not reset.

Thanks. I will just use today's hours as my new baseline to track my hours going forward.

I started having the issue with my WD73735 getting the flashing yellow light and shutting off but only right after first start up. It would do this a couple of times. I knew I needed to replace the lamp so I replaced it and cleaned everything out. I still kept getting the yellow flashing light and the TV shutting off but like before it only happen a couple of time on first start up but then would stay on all day.
Well finally it started do it all the time throughout the day.
So I replace the thermal sensor and both fans and cleaned it out again.
Well that stopped it from shutting off all day but now it shuts of once of twice after first start up with a flashing green light but after once or twice it says on the rest of the day.
Sometime it will shut off with a flashing green light a couple of times the it will turn yellow for a couple of flashes then go back to green.

I had the same issue with my 735. On these sets, the heat sensor that detects if your set is getting too hot is located next to the lamp itself. So, the heat from the lamp can cause it to think the set is over heating, causing it to shut down. I had a tech come out and rewire the sensor as to not get near the lamp and it has not happened since.

Well after 39 months and 10,386 hours of runtime on my 65736, the bulb finally faded - have a replacement on order under my extended warranty. Enjoying the heck out of this TV, tiding me over until the 92" is under $2500, lol

I have had the TV for about a year and a half now and have never thought the HD looked as good as I thought it should. The whites were always washed out and the blacks way to black to the point you couldn't see any detail in dark scenes. I tried all the things you could do in the TV menu but nothing helped.
Sooooo I finally decided to find a calibrator to see what they could do.
Well I found a guy that doesn't live far from me and contacted him to see what he could do. Well I have to say that I am totally amazed))
I never knew an HD TV could look sooo good. The colors and detail are totally amazing. The whites are white with no silk screen look and the black are black and you can still see all the detail in dark scenes. And the depth of the picture is totally amazing. The picture almost looks 3D and I know what 3D looks like on it because I have all the equipment to watch 3D on the TV and have watched a few 3D movies on it. I haven't yet watched one since the calibration but can't wait too.

As far as the Calibrator I used I have to say I'm extremely impressed with him and his work.
He told me everything he was doing all the way through the process and why he was doing it and what it did.
He kept showing me on his laptop what he was doing and showing me the changes and what they did.
He switch back to the Fios input now and then to see how things look and I have to say each time I was impressed with the picture but he kept doing more and more adjustments. I was impressed looking at the picture after 3 hours but then he worked hours more because he knew it could be even better and he was right. When he was finally done I was totally blown away

So if anyone needs and excellent calibrator that tells you everything he's doing and why and you end up with a picture that you never even belived
your TV could produce you need to contact:

Can you post your settings?

Same here, just replaced the lamp on our 65736 a couple weeks ago. Hour counter was lost after repairs last year. I figure about 9000 hours; 3 years 8 months.

I wasn't as lucky with my warranty though (DTV Express): They quit on us when the Light Engine broke after 2 years (or rather: Bankers Warranty quit on us, and DTV Express just said sorry). Mitsubishi helped us out though, and covered part of the repair -- and did it again when the Main Board broke last year. But of course that meant we had to buy the lamp ourselves. That's $700 in repairs + lamp that was supposed to be covered

Despite all that, we also enjoy this TV a lot. Excellent PQ (if properly calibrated)! And Mitsubishi demonstrated care and support far beyond what I think most vendors would do.

About to hit the 4 year point on my warranty, and I have not had to use it. It includes one bulb replacement, so I have to make a phone call and hopefully they can just ship it to me and I'll hold it until I need it.

I have had no problems with my 73835, took a chance and didn't buy an extended warranty. This time I won.

I changed my bulb about a month ago and it is now noticably brighter. I was surprized how easy it was to replace the bulb. To anyone who has not yet replaced their bulb, it is time and you can do it yourself.

I found my receipt from my TV, and saw the warranty expires on 5/26. Called up and I'm getting the bulb mailed to me. Don't know if I'll install it though - I may just hold onto it until the my current bulb gets really bad. I haven't had to kick up the brightness or anything, but I wanted to take advantage of the bulb replacement since I paid for it.
