Power supply board

I just ordered a new power supply. It's a shot in the dark, but it's one of the few original parts remaining. Its also the least expensive part.
Where did you order from?
Does anyone know if a 92840 power supply board will work in a 92842. The part numbers are 934C409003 for the 840 and 934C409006 for the 842 but the boards look identical.

I've bought several parts from here and I'm happy with them...

They might can help you determine if parts are interchangeable.

Not sure if my old set will sell, so I am willing to part it out. If anyone needs parts let me know.
how big of a shock was it going from 73" to 55"?

how far do you sit from the tv?

I'm about 10 feet away and the 55" is comfortable from that distance. At times I felt the 73" was too big at 10', but I bought it originally for a larger room.

Before I got my 73" I had a 54" Panny plasma. I'm watching the 73" from about 10' and I find it near perfect. The Panny's 54" always felt a bit small to me.
I dread the day I have to replace my DLP with an LED set. I just don't like the picture on them at all. And sadly plasma is all but disappeared.

That is what I believed until I got mine. The picture is great and the viewing angle is much wider than I thought.

thanks for the help guys. i sit 16ft from my 73" and considered buying a 55" led if my DLP tv were to break.
55" led tv's can be had very reasonably right now.

How are these sets holding up? I'm contemplating picking up a used 92" on craigslist vs building a projector for our living room. There's a lot of ambient light and the viewing angles are pretty big. We sit about 19' away in a u shape around the tv about 22' in width and our current 60" plasma is just ridiculously tiny. I'm thinking this 92" may even be a tad small but.i imagine the picture in our viewing conditions will be leaps and bounds better than running a new epson 5025ub and an elite cinegrey 5d screen. Although I will have a 130" picture then...

My 92840 is now 4 years old. If your ambient light levels is high, I would not suggest the set. It is okay with a fresh lamp in a daylight room but at 6 months on the lamp you would not be happy. I have had very good luck with mine but I need my 4th lamp right now. I have over 10k hours on mine.

Thanks. I went to both and found a few on craigslist, none on eBay. Other than some really wild prices that were higher than the set sold new, one was at 400. Sounds like he'll get a good deal!!

I might pay as much as $500-600 for an 73842 series, but not the 73742 series.

Hi Guys, I have owned a 65" Mit DLP for about 5.5 years and I have been considering buying a used 82" 840. I have a few questions if anyone can help.

I believe I read the 82840 has the clear contract screen, I assume this screen works best in darker rooms.
I am concerned about the white/block dot DLP chip problems, is the 82840 very susceptible to this issue?
Is the dlp chip failure due to heat, and if so has anyone tried adding some sort of active cooling to extend the chip's life.

I have had very good luck with my 65" so far (knock on wood). I am still on my original bulb and I have no dots yet, but I only use my tv for about an hour per day on average. I really love my tv and I would love to move up to an 82" (or maybe even a 92"), but the dot issue has me concerned. Thank you!

I have an 82740 and possibly a 92842 for sale. PM me if anyone is interested. The only problem I've found with selling is that these large TVs are hard to ship if you're out of town or our of state. I'm in NM.

The tv model is the wd-82842.

I need to move the 82" from the upstairs floor down to the basement.. so 2 floors. The basement stairs look tight and it might be doable but wondering if it would be smarter to remove the casing front and back from the tv to make it much easier?

I have thr service manual which is good.. would it be safe to take it apart and not damage something doing so?

I've got my 71 year old father coming over to help.. I'm sure we could do it but he might walk out when I tell him we need to place this is the basement hehe.

That's ok.. we got it down in the basement! Went easier then we thought. Both flight of stairs had a turn ofcourse but the screen was skinny enough to clear.

At first I tried to gut it after removing a bunch of screws from the bottom and had serious fun trying to remove a dozen or more cables from the chassis.. removed a flat ribbon cable and thrn realized the the guts werent made to pull out as I thought and pit it all back together! Wasted prob 2 hours messing around and finally after fooling around trying to figure out the best way to hold it we just went down! Me on the bottom holding all the weight. One had on the back near the bottom were it's designed to be held and one at the top front and away we went.

Happy it's all working just fine!

Tomorrow my new 65" lg oled 5k tv is coming!

Sounds like you may be getting the same one I got (65EF9500). I have it in the bedroom because it's such a smaller screen than my WD92842 DLP. Can't give that one up until I can find an affordable OLED in a similar size. I find I'm spending a lot of time in the bedroom now since getting the LG.
