I don't believe there is a colorwheel or a bulb like a DLP would have, so what would I need to replace to make this TV set brighter?
I have loved this tv from the day I got it .Now I could just loose it over this issue .When I purchased my Mitsubishi LaserVue L65A90 they offered no extra warranty either
But anyway, if you can't find the part now... WAIT It takes a while for aftermarket to pick up your part. I recall my TV's parts becoming available 3 years after it became obsolete, no more no less. Ebay seems to have a lineup as we speak, of light sources 500 bucks, not bad. Good luck in getting'er up n running.
the mirror in the light engine has 3 small spots of dust .I cannot figure out how to remove the dust .I tried about 10 times
to get into the light engine even tried my vacuuming the mirror .Always sure not to touch the mirror but the open is small
rectangle where the dlp chip set in . . How much do you want to buy mine for ?
Guess they decide to fix them now instead of pay the customer off for the tv .. Not sure this is absolute truth but sharing it anyway .
I've had mine for several years. Shortly after the first year (warranty expired of course) I noticed dimming/contrast issues at various times. A tech came to look at my problem and said it looked normal to him. I pointed out instances as they happened and he saw it a couple of times he said, but then said it was normal and was the result of a change of image source i.e, channel/commercial/etc. I argued the point but no good. I called BS. He said he'd send his report to Mits.
My LaserVue has now dimmed as you describe in your post. I'm about to dump mine and go back to LED/LCD. Initially, I was in awe of the picture. It was outstanding! Since the issues reared up, and with no help from Mits, WASTED BUCKS!
I am going to get a 64 inch Samsung plasma 8500. Picture is superb even if the size is smaller than I wanted. Not sure what kind of warranty to get. I am applying for an American Express card to get a 2nd year warranty at least. Tomorrow I will learn if my warranty on the Mitz with an aftermarket company will give me something beyond what Mits is offering.
Some dimming noticed sometime in its 2cd year. More so in the 3rd year. A LOT more in 4th year to the point of not really being watchable. A few weeks ago began getting the auto-shutoff as well (time to shut off varies and I've ruled out all other source components and cables).
My 5 year warranty is good into late Spring of 2015 so not 100% how the retailer I ordered the set through (local retailer) is going to handle it. I loved the image when the set was in its prime (after calibration), especially 3D, and am now sorely disappointed it hasn't lasted longer. If the set could be repaired I *might* be ok with that for awhile, but how long before it would go out again? I really think I want to replace it with the 2014 model LG 84" 4K/Passive 3D set (don't want to go down in size and not much else out there that can match the non-ghosting high-quality 3D imho) but I *have* to recoup something per the 5 yr extended warranty I purchased.
And what's with the lack of availability of parts for this set anyway? I was under the impression manufacturers were required by law to stock parts for 7 years past the date they cease selling (manufacturing?) the product. Is this incorrect? If not, how does Mits skirt this requirement? And if I'm wrong well, not the first time lol.
Any owners out there that have had their set repaired (particularly new light engine) and has remained in good working order afterwards for a substantial amount of time (or the opposite)? Let's hear the rest of your story.
