So to answer our question it Makes A Huge Difference what lamp you use I have tried the So Called Better made German Lamps. The difference is Night & Day Pun Intended.

Get This one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002Y0QV5M/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00

No Other will compare

Well you are 100% right. I wish I would have looked here first. I always used to.

The Osram is not close to the Panasonic bulb.

My tv is still going strong. However I am getting the upgrade itch. Who has upgraded? What did you get and how do you like it compared to the Sammy?

My hand was forced because the DLP chip died in my Sammy. If you want to stick with DLP (which is still the best size / $$ ratio) your only option is Mitsubishi as far as I know. I think it's sad that all the other vendors have dropped their DLP lines.

I have the Mitsubishi WD-73740 73-Inch 1080p (2011 model) and I have no complaints. Feature-wise it beats the Sammy... but picture quality wise I think the Sammy had a slight edge.

If you are looking to change technology and go with a flat panel, I think Samsung makes some of the best, but don't go overboard on getting their highest tier. From what I have read you are paying for how thin it is, and not how great it is. So you can step down a couple of notches and come out cheaper with even better PQ. But nothing LCD/LED is going to come close to the value of a DLP. 73" is now considered the "small" size for DLP. The other two sizes are 82" and 92": http://mitsubishi-tv.com/

Compare those prices to Samsung: http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs (check the "over 65" button on the left).

Thanks for the Reply.

I have narrowed it down between the Panasonic TC-65PS64. 65 inch plasma for $1300 is almost to hard to pass up. However I will be losing 2 inches. My other option in the new 70 inch Vizio M series. I want a 70 inch. However it is $1000 more and doesn't have as good of picture quality as the Panasonic Plasma.

Just curious why you are not considering a 73" Mitsubishi? It will be as cheap as the Panasonic (or maybe even less... I paid $999 for mine which was a referb) and still have the benefits of a huge 1080p screen, 3D support, and all the bells and whistles.

Question

TV started acting up this month (1/2016). It's been randomly turning off. Sometimes, once an evening. Other times it's good. This morning, 4 times in one hour. Picture still looks good as the bulb was replaced in February of 2013.

Anyone experience this? Anything to check? Thanks.

I just changed the bulb in mine on new years day (had over 11k hours on original bulb), otherwise, still going strong (darn it)... I'm really wanting it to fail so I can replace with a 70" or 75" 4k sammy...

Q1: Is there a fan in the back somewhere to be heard blowing the heat from the bulb area?

Q2: Are there firmware updates for this TV somewhere?

Yes, there is a fan but it should be pretty quiet (at least mine is). I think it runs all the time the tV is on but am not sure because I only hear it when behind it.

I've checked for updates on samsung web page. I didn't find anything but the manual. At this point I'm about ready to replace it anyway...

I think we are back in business. Both fans are operational. It's been two days since cleaned and hasn't powered off:
  • Took out the light. Vacuumed the light from the two side holes to remove some large dust flakes in there.
  • Took off the rear panel - lots of screws - use cordless screwdriver.
  • Removed the power supply and vacuumed. A little tricky to get the connector in the back bottom off. Small hands would be easier. Slides out easily when all the connectors are off.
  • Vacuumed power supply area. At the rear of the power supply bay is the light fan. Took damp paper towel and cleaned all the fins from baked on dirt. Careful not to leave any paper towel remnants or use a small cloth.
  • Vacuumed main unit by the small fan and any other areas.
  • Removed the small fan (two screws). This is where a sizable glob of fine dust was sitting on the lower part of the heat sink. Cleaned all the fins.
  • Reassembled.
