No Part Available

Still no parts availability for my MITS TV. Last price on light engine was around $2800, but I think that is a bit redundant if the part is no longer produced. Keep the dust away and cross your fingers, because WHEN it breaks, it is at this point unrepairable.
CPS Warranty is a joke. BBB should shut them down. Nothing but a huge scam. Great attitude they have. "If we can't repair it for any reason we'll give you back part of your premium". How can they lose????

I'm not sure, but I think the CPS extended warranty contract is also covered under The Magnuson-Moss Act. Whether or not their "no-lose" clause is legal is another question. In either case, it does seem immoral. If they can't repair, maybe ask for a comparable 75" hdtv. Probably won't be as good as the LV, but much better than $300.

It might be worthwhile to contact your state attorney general's office to see if there's anything they can do to get you a better (as in fair) settlement. At least in Massachusetts, it wouldn't cost you anything to do this and has been known to actually get results. The warranty company shouldn't be able to just give you a partial refund on the cost of the warranty and walk away. That defeats the purpose of a warranty.

Hey Raccoondad. If you are in need of a light engine, I purchased one for my a91 as a backup when the last light engine went. Unfortunately the light source went and I was unable to source the part anywhere new or salvaged. I still have the engine, but have no way of testing it. If you want it pm me as I ended up junking the Mitsubishi and went to my backup Samsung.

One agreed to those terms when one purchased the warranty, so nothing can be done.

Well, it has happened again. I was watching a program, and the L75-A91 just went dark. The power light just flashes amber. I have looked at the error table, but since the light just flashes steadily and continuously, I have counted over 100, well beyond the highest value on the table. No breaks in the flashes and no other colors, just amber. I have tried unplugging and replugging, and I have tried the system reset described in the manual. No luck. When this happened last time, 2 years ago, a couple of weeks later the TV just started working again. I had called CPS (extended warranty), and they told me to do something, but it recovered before I did anything. I filed another claim tonight, as I still have a few months on the extended warranty (for what it is worth, which appears to be little judging from others' experiences with CPS—we will see). If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be most appreciative.

Thank you.

Hey guys, been reading the AVS forums here and there for years but never had a reason to post until this weekend when I became the happy new owner of an L65-A90!

I've always liked the picture of DLP's and have owned a few so when I saw this on craigslist I jumped on it. The good news is that the colors and contrast are phenomenal and there are no white dots on the screen. The bad news is that while the bottom of the picture is perfectly focused, it gets progressively out of focus moving up. On the overscan test image in the service menu the lines are razor sharp at the bottom but easily 3/16" wide at the top and clearly out of focus.

My technical knowledge of these sets is limited but I can't help but think this is a mechanical alignment issue. I've downloaded the service menu but haven't found anything helpful in there. I've removed the back panels to vacuumed out all the dust and while I was in there i very carefully checked both the flat and parabolic mirror and neither seems loose or gives any indication of being "out of whack".

I'm slowly making my way through all 92 paged of this thread but if anyone has any ideas it would be much appreciated.

William.
