so my a91 now has some issues with dots that come and go. I called mits and after putting up a fight they agreed to fix for free (parts and labor). But they want me to sign a release. CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT AND R E L E A S E. The tv is over 2 years old. I brought up the buybacks and they said No. Any advise?</div>

Any idea if the repair is expensive or not? If not, I'd tell them to stick that document where the sun doesn't shine. If it is expensive, I still might tell them to do that. If you sign the document, where does that leave you if the repair doesn't work? On the one hand, it's nice that they're agreeing to fix something that's out of warranty, but on the other hand it's the right thing to do (except for the signing your life away part).<br><br>
Not that it's a factor at this time because they don't currently sell anything I want, but I can't see myself every buying a Mitsubishi product again seeing how they've been handling these issues.
Just go to shopjimmy.com and buy and replace the DLP chip. I just did this myself and the difference in the picture is amazing, its back to the super bright and vibrant colors I saw when I first purchased the L65-A90 in 2009. There is nothing on the market like this TV even 5 years later. The chip is less than $200 so its well worth the small investment, trust me!

I ran across some specs for the Laservue yesterday that said it supports xvYCC / X.V. Color. Is that literally true?
That is will a BD player that supports it pass the wider colors properly or is this just marketing hype?

Is there a specific setting to enable it?

xvYCC is not supported by DVD-Video but is supported by the high-definition recording format AVCHD and PlayStation 3.

On January 7, 2013, Sony announced that it would release "Mastered in 4K" Blu-ray Disc titles which are sourced at 4K and encoded at 1080p.[5] "Mastered in 4K" Blu-ray Disc titles can be played on existing Blu-ray Disc players and will support a larger color space using xvYCC.[5][6]

On May 30, 2013, Eye IO announced that their encoding technology was licensed by Sony Pictures Entertainment to deliver 4K Ultra HD video.[7][8] Eye IO encodes their video assets at 3840 x 2160 and includes support for the xvYCC color space.[7][8]

They wouldn't come down to Cleveland Plasma's price, but the amount they did come down plus the money back for the Laservue put the LG price well below what I could reasonably have expected anyone else to match. So I feel this was quite fair.

And yes, I sure hope this set lasts longer than the 4 years of the Laservue (which I will still miss; oh that color when it was in its prime...)
If you don't mind my asking, where and when did you buy your LaserVue?

You need the exact part for your model. Unfortunately, laser assemblies are not interchangeable among model years.
