I think that's the auto on timer indication..... I forget where it is in the menus though. Mine was doing this a while back and that's what it turned out to be.

buy one of these great mitsu's (or other stuff) and get 30% off with coupon code LSCOLUMBUS.

you can get a 65837 for just over $1300. A 73837 is just over $1750. Free shipping too. I didn't try it all the way through but it looks like it works.

I'm crying right now because I bought a 65837 two weeks ago for $1600. Loving it though.

When you apply the coupon code, this pops up:
Special Pricing by Invitation Only - Cannot be combined with any other offer. (LSCOLUMBUS)
Cannot be combined with any other offer. Excludes Bundles, Clearance, Netbooks, Game Consoles, Beltronics, Bose, Escort, Shure, Yamaha and select LG, Mitsubishi, Polk Audio, Samsung, and Sony items.

Somehow I suspect that the new Mitsus are considered 'select' items .

Bummer, coulda picked up an 82837 for $2900 . Don't know what I'd do with it since mine is being delivered tomorrow anyway .

yes, I saw the same thing, but it applied the discount when i put it in my basket. I tried some other things that didn't work (variious blu ray players) so I think it will with the mitsu. But I didn't follow through with the transaction so who knows if it cancels out at the end?

Thanks. Yes, I'm definitely glad I exchanged it. There is, what I call operational "noise" but other than that nothing.

So in short, and so that others may also look out for this.

My first set had a high pitched, buzzing noise. It would get worse if you had set the light energy to BRIGHT.

It could not be drowned out by the volume because the high pitched sound can be heard. If the movie had only dialogue or silent parts like "Castaway" the buzz can be heard.

I had to replace the entire set. The new set (82737) is quiet with some operational noise, and that's it. A volume of 1 will drown it out and the fan noise is very low. Overall it will not detract from your viewing or listening experience. If it does, take it back or have a service tech look at it.

I hope this helps! Because this set is awesome and you can't be the price for the size.

Thanks everyone for your input and info!

What is the shortest viewing distance for a 65" screen? I have a small room in an apartment for now where I have my computer on one side of a corner type desk and my tv on the other. I like that I just have to turn in my chair to switch views. For a family Christmas present we got a 50" plasma for the living room a couple of years ago, which my wife has control of 95% of the time (actually part of my plan for me to get something really HUGE and cool for the room I prefer to hang out in). So now it is my turn to upgrade. The current dimensions are about 3.5-4' viewing distance to the current tv side of my desk. With some rearranging of furniture, a large tv could be placed to the side with a viewing distance of 5.5'. Any thoughts on whether I would be better off with a 42-47-50" plasma/lcd at the shorter distance or a 58" plasma or 65" dlp at the longer distance? This set up would be for about a year until we plan to move into a house, or longer if it works well.

I have to say that the picture from this tv with HD and blu Ray is simply IMO better than any flat panel I have seen.

What do you guys think of the PQ of the 737s. I heard that the blacks aren't all that great. Is it worth buying?? Anyone know where the good deals are?

I just tried to get an 82837. After the code is entered the set comes up at $2927.77. I could not complete the deal because no matter what shipping address I put in it said there were no shipping options to that address. I might call them after they open and see what the deal is. That is a GREAT price on this set and they are listed as an authorized dealer on the Mitsubishi site!

UPDATE! I have to thank bunfacejones for the coupon code for electronics-expo.com. I had to call to square my on-line order away because it said there was no shipping options for my location. After talking to them I had a done deal on a 82837 for $3456.76 shipped including a 5 year extended warranty. So I have a total of six years full coverage for anything Mits would of covered under the original warranty. This price is good till closing today. So if you are on the fence I would go for it. The person I spoke to was Keith @ extension 150. Nice guy. He will fix you up! WOOHOO! I'm excited! It should be here before the end of the week.

I set 7 feet from my 65837 and it looks great. I can just see the 1 pixel wide test signal so I know I am able to see all the 1080P resolution from Blu-Ray. Here is a chart for different screen sizes-- http://s3.carltonbale.com/resolution_chart.html

Has anyone here gone from a pioneer kuro to mits RP? I just came from my buddies house. He has a samsung RP, and we watched the Yanks Twins game. The pic looked alot better than my Kuro. Blacks were blacker, and the whites really popped. No noise at all either. The only difference is he has VZ Fios, I have my local cable. I am wondering if it is the TV, or my cable service(Fios isnt avail to me yet). Anyone here care to share your opinions?

My Fios picture (SD and HD) is far superior to when I had Comcast. I have a JVC56FN97. So I think you would need to compare apples to apples as far as signal and source are concerned.

Now I'm bummed, $500 less than what I paid at US Appliance (which was a great price) .

But mine was delivered today, too late to change my mind (or my order). And all I can say is WOW!. Everything looked good on delivery, the driver even helped put it on the stand. HD on Dish or OTA is great, and BluRay is simply stunning. Did a quick setup using some settings from the thread here, will run a better cal with the Spears and Munson disc tonight or tomorrow. This baby probably justifies an ISF cal once the bulb settles in. Geometry looks OK when viewing menus and such, the S&M disc will tell the true story.

The wife loves it already, life is good. My 16yo daughter came home from school, took one look and commented "This. Is. Ridiculous.". Now I know I made the right choice ....

Congrats on an AWESOME deal, I'm going to call and see if I can get it too.

It shows they have the 82837 on sale for $4699, so taking 30% off that wouldn't bring it down to 2900ish. Plus it's not showing free delivery either.

What was the pricing break down on your invoice?

Again, congrats on your new 82".

Thanks

Hello all,

Newbie here, but have been reading this forum since April. Finally ready to purchase a 73" Mits, been wanting one for two years now to replace my VS-60703 from 1998 (don't laugh, it's still working great and never had a bit of trouble with it). I've settled on the 73" as perfect for my viewing area, but am struggling a bit with the model selection.

73737 - plenty of good prices from the etailers, lots of great advice in this forum for 'out of the box' inspection items and setup info.

73C9 - seems this is just a rebadged 73737, no loss of features or functionality. Really? Then why would I even consider purchasing a 73737 if this model is identical and quite a bit less expensive?

73837 - honestly, this was going to be my first choice until the issue of the iris pumping came up. Am I over reacting? The video showing the iris lag was damning in my opinion. And since it seems the consensus is to turn off the extra bells and whistles anyway and rely on a good calibration to get the best picture, the end result is just paying more for the extra HDMI port in the front and a nicer cabinet. Not sure it's worth the extra cash.

Apologies for the public hand-wringing. I plan to pull the trigger by the end of the week. Much obliged for all the advice from this thread, I promise to put it to good use.

Cheers!

How can you tell if you need to adjust the geometry settings? Anyone with a Oppo BD83 can you please tell me what are your settings on your player and Mitsubishi for optimal video.

That coupon took more than 30% off the price. The TV was 2927.77 after it was applied. That got the price of the warranty down because the set dropped below 3500.00 The warranty was $299.00 and the freight was added on to that. No tax.

"to the side"? What will your viewing angle be? I'd be a little concerned if you were at a sharpish angle that close. Angled viewing on these isn't bad as DLP's go (keyword being "as DLPs go") but it is worse closer in. At 5' I'd want that thing dead-on to your eye-level both left-right and up-down for the best picture. And don't forget this is NOT a flatpanel we're talking about --if that 5' is to the wall, you also need to allow for the depth of the TV and some airflow room in determing how close the screen will be to you.

Hey guys,

I recently got a 73737 and wondering if fast motion on HD channels is messed up by the TV or by compression from my cable provider? I watched a football game yesterday for the first time and when the players were moving fast they appeared "pixelated". Slower action looked good but fast moving definitely suffered.

I saw the same thing watching a baseball game when the camera showed the stands with people waving towels ..it looked very pixelated.

I'm assuming this is caused by the signal compression from my cable provider, I hope.

I have a Harmony 659 and a Mits 65C9 and used the Wd-60C9 choice in the Harmony database. I use a Denon 1610 AVR and have one HDMI cable from receiver to TV, all sources plugged into AVR....Harmony remote works fine.

I think pixelation can be safely chalked up to the source material (over compression). Have you seen any problems with DVDs or Blu-rays?

Bit the bullet yesterday during the rainy Columbus day holiday and decided to do some geometry adjusting on my set. HD stuff didn't look bad, but 4:3 had a terrible inward bow on the right side - everything else looked pretty straight.

First of all, my horizontal position was way off and the verical was off a little so that the lines were "twisted" (picture was off screen to the left by quite a bit - I could see the white line only on the left, but all 4 colored lines on the right - and rotated about 20 degrees from vertical). I can't believe it didn't really show up that much watching HD material.

After centering the picture (lines) the best I could I did the 16 point correction, and got it to look pretty good. 4:3 correction was a bit of a disappointment, none of the 11 settings gave me a good straight right side, but I picked one that was much better than the out of the box setting. I can live with it now at least.

Thanks for all the help and the pointer to the service manual posted in this tread.

Don't have a true HD source to test it with at the moment, I had a look at a 37" LCD in another room and I think it also showed it. But at that small size it's a lot less visible.

Why is it the tv flashing at the begining of a blu ray and DVD? Is this hdmi handshaking. My other tv never did this.

(giggle).

I recently picked up an Atlona AT-HD500 scaler for ~$200 at Fry's to connect my netbook to my old Mits WD-65734. Best two bills I've spent in a long time. Takes VGA in and outputs 1080p HDMI, also takes analog or digital in and outputs your choice of analog or digital.

Easy setup, plug and play, setup menus built into the firmware and adjustable via OSD. Have been using it to watch Netflix and other streaming services over wi-fi, picture quality is much better than expected. And my netbook is quieter than any HTPC....
