I have a WD-73835
The 73835 has about 3780 hours on it. Its starting to look dim in the daylight. I think it has definately lost brightness. Is this normal around this timeframe as far as bulb life. I know its rated for 6000 HRS but its definately lost the oomph and brilliance.
I only had one other bulb but it bit it prematurely inside warranty and was quickly replaced as a courtesy from Mits.
Is this the end.......
Is it time to replace the bulb.
We usually watch on standard bulb energy mode, and fast power on. The set is connected to a UPS as well.
I see mits sells for $107 with housing shipped to NC>
I think that is a great price from what i see. Sure i could save 17 and buy just the bulb.....but i might like having a spare housing.
