Well I've decided to sell my 82840 to step up to a Samsung 85 inch 4K LED...So, my 82840 is for sale. I live in Cali if anyone might be interested.

Lag is not a problem with Mitsubishi DLPs. I remember reading that the early Samsung DLPs had a problem with lag, however.

That's what I mean mainly, are these 840 mits models lag free? I mean I've gamed a ton on mine, and I've thought it was lag free but it could simply be a super low refresh rate.

In any case, I guess my question is bumping to an led set will introduce me more to lag correct?

I'm lookin at the Samsung ju7100 75 model and I'm just hoping that gaming on it would be similar to my 82 840

Stink bugs!!!!

Inside of my 92840.

Literally flying around and doing some unmentionables on the screen?

Any suggestions on how to get these suckers out before they have babies?

Also, how did they get in there? I would think that a filter must be missing that needs to be fixed.

Thanks.

Fog the house or disassemble the TV.


The TV is not a sealed system no filter would help..

If there is a side port, just remove it and suck the stink bug out with a vacuum cleaner hose.

I bought an "Osram 69788 P-VIP 150-180/1.0 E22R OEM replacement bulb #5 " for my 92840. I installed it in one of my OEM lamp cartridges. This will be the first time I haven't used a lamp I got directly from Mits, but I think it's the correct one. My favorite TV of all time has 13860 hours on it now. Like most of us I hope it keeps on keep'n on. My 73c9 is still working great too.

When you see what is out there anywhere near the size you are talking about 8 grand or much more. It would be a lot cheaper to repair rather then replace, assuming Mits can provide spares. I am under SquareTrade warranty for another year.
I don't have as many hours as you but I am over 10000 hours now on my 92840. 300 hours on the latest (Mits) lamp so it's time to calibrate again.

Our warranty runs out next July. I've heard that Discover card gives an extra year. Hope I don't have to find out.
I heard someone on Home Theater Geeks or one of the others talking about an ultra short throw projector and screen combo that didn't need a light controlled room. Not sure who is working on that. I hope someone.
It would be very tough to have to get used to a smaller screen.

Any Vapers Using these DLPs?

I love my 73640, but I have a big issue and it comes from the wife and I vaping (if you are unaware, that means we use e-cigs).

Are there any other vapers using these TVs? Have you found a solution for the vape build up on the inside of the screen and mirror?? Been thinking about maybe installing exhaust fans in the side access ports....?

I have to take the screen off every month or so and clean them...gets tedious.


This might sound crazy to non-vapers, but just imagine having a fog machine (turned on very low) running in your TV room every day....the vapor settles on the inside of the TV and the image gets progressively cloudier over time. My widows get all vaped-up too.

If it does that to the TV and windows, imagine what it does to your lungs..


Buy an LED/LCD TV.

Well, it was the only thing that finally got me off of smoking (after 30 years) and I know what that was doing to my lungs...so, the lesser of two evils for sure.

Thanks anyways.

Put an air purifier in the room! It should take care of the vapor and a few other things

Already got one...if it helps, it doesn't help much.

I'd love to get a nice, shiny, new flat panel...but to get even near the screen size I already have (73") the only real budget option is Visio and they are still much, much more than I paid for the Mitsu.

Someday.....

Yeah, I've been eye-balling the 80" Vizio for some time now...but dang, $4K is a LOT of green. The price on the 75" is much more enticing (~$2800), but still more than twice what I paid for the Mitsu...yeah, it was 5 years ago, but still.
