Hi all, my 52 inch Mitsubishi DLP went on the blink Friday evening - was fine Thursday night then turned it on Friday evening and no picture - just a lot of green wavy horizantal lines - I can hear the audio and the device manager and setting controls worked fine.
When I tried some of the other devices inputs I got a light blue screen with a round faded circle in the middle of the screen - I usually got a darker blue screen when there is no input. I tried input 3 where my DVD player is connected and got nothing. I also tried the front A/V inputs and those did not work either. I connected the satellite box to another TV and that worked fine so i know it's not my Direct TV box. My TV is a little over 5 years old and I replaced the lamp last March. I'll also mentione that the picture quality has been looking washed out and faded lately.
Any ideas what it could be? and/or what type of cost I'm looking at to fix?
also, how much in general would/should a service tech charge to come out and tell me my set is broken?
thanks in advance!!
one other note - this morning (saturday) - i turned it on and now my lamp button turns red after the initial power button blinks green for a few seconds - now can't hear any audio and none of the device/setting functions work - i pulled the lamp cartridge andit looks fine (not burned out like my last lamp) - could a lamp relacement fix all the issues I have???
