But I wouldn't know for sure which ones were really compatible. That's why I'm asking you. Or don't you know either?

Yea!!! My 67" is working again. After searching this and the 61" thread it sounded like my red LED bit the dust. Today I received a new one from encompassparts and installed it, thanks for the service manual Buzz.

Go Me!

LOL

Between my HL67A750 and my L75A91 LaserVue I think I'm finally getting a handle on it.

When i turn it back off, it seems like the screen struggles to boot back up, but when it does, everything is back to normal.

Can anyone chime in on what might be wrong? A weak capacitor / a solder joint coming loose somewhere?

Thank you,
Calvin
bump can anyone else help out please?

I have owned the HL67A750 for 2 years and it has now crapped out. When you turn it on, it trys to turn on and I get nothing, only the 3 lights on the bottom panel flash. I talk to repair shops and they say its the bulb, but they obviously don't know its an LED light, they don't know. I finally broke down and took it to a repair shop and they said it was the LED Light Engine (I still don't have a high confidence level that they really know, they sounded a little unsure).

Anyone else have this experience or know where to start? I've looked for an LED light engine and found one for almost $1,000!!!! Thats a deal breaker for me. The repair shop said they can't find replacement parts. I've looked at samsungparts and didn't see the light engine....

PLEASE HELP!!

The following list of DLP link glasses are known to work:
ViewSonic PGD-150
Optoma BG-ZD101
XpanD X102

Right now, for various reasons, the Viewsonics are the best deal.
post #2442 of 2719
So to make this whole thing work with my 67A750 I need these glasses and a 3D BRay player. Is that it? Will any 3D BRay player do?

Jack
post #2443 of 2719
Panasonic BTD-100 player ($160 on Amazon)
Optoma DLP link glasses. ($90 per pair on Amazon)

I got Alice in Wonderland,it looks OK. Hoping because the 3D was added after the filming that other movies will look better.

only panasonics have the checkerboard pattern option that DLP sets need

When I Google Panasonic BD 3D players the latest model the DMP-BDT100 shows up. Were there any earlier 3D models that were available with this checkerboard ability?

The DMP-BDT100 is the lowest priced Panasonic BD 3D player. There is also a more expensive DMP-BDT300 and a DMP-BDT350. All were introduced in 2010. There were no 2009 3D BD players.

If you go with the DMP-BDT100 (@ $130 at amazon.com), you'll also need DLP 3D glasses (@ $100 apiece: ViewSonic PGD-150 or Optoma BG-ZD101 or XpanD X102), an HDMI cable (@ $3 at monoprice.com), and of course 3D Blu-Ray movies.
post #2447 of 2719
Someone needs to compile all the 3D conversion, glasses, software, bluray player and any other 3D information into a sticky. This thread is way to long and way too full of questions as to if something really works or not. Maybe the sysop can start a new thread with a poll and equipment list or something. I would really like to see a list of any glasses that work with any blu ray players or any boxes to convert to checkerboard and would really like to know if and when Sammy will or will not release a firmware update. I love my 67A750 and do not want to upgrade until this one dies beyond reasonable repair.

I just wanted to post and say thank you to all of you who have contributed to this thread. I've been reading it off and on since before I took the plunge and bought my 61", and I've stopped off at AVS frequently just to gauge public opinion on various tech over the years as well.

My set has been terrific up until this weekend. I too noticed the dim bar at the left edge of the screen, and as I'm hyper-critical of image quality, it must have just appeared. I'm going to perform the fix that I've read about, but I am skeptic about this not being a larger problem. I also find it incredibly odd that many of us are experiencing this exact issue at such similar times. I received delivery of my set in October 2008, which means that it is approximately 2 years, 2 months old, which is younger than some of yours who have seen this, and I'd really like a better explanation than 'it might be caused by vibration'. Always the left and all of a sudden? Doesn't jive with me.

I'm also quite disappointed in the reports of people replacing failed LED's so soon as well. Didn't the product literature state somewhere about 20,000 hour average lifespan? A lot of the reason I went with LED was so as not to worry about color wheels or lamp replacement ever if I could help it. I figured I'd get at least 5 years out of the set before I got upgrade-itis anyway. (yes, I still might, but now I'm concerned).

In any event - just wanted to document my issue and again, thanks for posting the fix. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

For the person asking about the 3d glasses...I have the 67a750 and have 3d up and running. I got the glasses with emitter off eBay from seller 3dtvcorp (they also have a website 3dmagic.com, I think). I got the Mitsubishi checkerboard adapter from Tru3d with the Gefen spoofer. And I'm using my Comcast DCX3400 set top box and my PS3 as 3d sources. It was relatively painless getting it all working.

I hear you there. I've been experimenting with LED lightbulbs for the last year and a half. Some of them are not yet ready for prime time. The particular problem with some I bought at Costco is they don't have their claimed output to begin with and get even dimmer over time.

I sent an email to the vendor asking about these working on the Samsung with checkerboard 3D. Here was their response:

John,
After doing some research it looks like the NX-3DG 3D glasses should work for you. The model you have states that Active 3D shutter glasses are needed which is what these are. I have not been able to find anything that says they will not work. If you get them and they do not work please feel free to contact us. We have a 30 day return policy. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can assist you with.

Any thoughts on this? Is this all I need? These glasses and a Panasonic 3D player?

Jack

I just emailed the company yesterday with the model of my tv's (the on in this thread and the 61") and this is the reply: "The NX-3DG are designed to work with all Samsung 3D formats".

I asked him to please make sure. I have the IOD emitter, so not sure if that emitter is specific to IOD glasses.

I also emailed BENQ regarding their 3D DLP Link glasses but have not heard back (http://www.benq.us/products/product_...ag=68&ptag=264).

You will see my sig what I have. The PGD-150's work great, but the arms are flimsy and have been breaking for some of us (including me and yes I handle them with care, but they still broke). Just google and search the forums.

Mitsubishi has released a 3D adapter compatible with Samsung DLP sets!

Dear Mr. Lewandowski,
A derivative adapter for Samsung DLP was developed in collaboration with Mitsubishi. (Model 3DC-100). A distribution network is being set-up but our expectation is that Samsungparts.com will offer it on their site in the next few weeks. Additional retailers TBA.
Best regards,
Dan Schinasi

Mitsubishi is currently (01/26/2011) selling the adapter in a kit called 3DC-100S 3D Starter Pack which comes with the 3D Signal Adapter, 3D Signal Adapter Remote Control, 2 pairs of Active Shutter 3D glasses, Emitter for 3D Glasses, Disney Blu-ray 3D Showcase Disc and One HDMI cable. The selling price is $449.00 and can be found at http://www.unisentvoffer.com/unisent...0S/details.htm.
The above web page comes from: http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/accessories/3DC100S

The 3DC-100S is advertised as such, "The Mitsubishi 3D Adapter converts most types of 3D signals into the signal type Mitsubishi 3D Ready TVs and Samsung 3D capable DLP TVs are designed to display. Most 3D Blu-ray players, 3D game consoles and cable and satellite boxes can be connected to a Mitsubishi 3D DLP Home Cinema TV and Samsung 3D capable DLP TVs with the adapter for an immersive 3D experience."

I am currently investigating whether or not Mitsubishi will be selling this adapter in a kit such as the 3DA-1, for those who already have glasses and emitter, etc.
Update 01/25: I just talked with Mitsubishi and they WILL be offering the Adapter from the 3DC-100S as a stand alone kit like the 3DA-1 from the 3DC-1000. They do not have a part number yet, but they will be offering it in the future!

Thank you Samsung and Mitsubishi for responding to the cry of the Samsung 3D DLP owners!

Thank you PlumB (and all the rest) for showing how to use the 3DA-1 (from 3DC-1000) on the Samsung without the Gefen HDMI Detective.

Thank you for the news. I have panasonic BDT-300 now, but my future 3D blu-ray player option is looking better without the EDID hack.

There are a few others too:

Ultraclear DLP Link glasses
Crystal Eyes 5 DLP link glasses

I own the UC, Viewsonics, Optomas, and have the CE5 on order.
post #2457 of 2719
Sometimes upon startup, the green LED light on front of display will blink 3 times but not always. Is this cause for concern?
post #2458 of 2719
Hi, I have a Samsung HL67a750 DLP. I plan on getting the 3DC-100S when they sell the adapter separately.

So, given that I don't yet have a 3D setup, would the best viewing experience be with DLP Link or emitter glasses? I was thinking of ordering from Ultimate3DHeaven:

DLP Link UltraClear:
http://www.ultimate3dheaven.com/uldlpliwi3dg.html

Emitter version:
http://ultimate3dheaven.com/dlp3dwiglfis.html

With the Emitter version, where would I be able to purchase the emitter?

Lastly, they have their own emitter/glasses kit:
http://ultimate3dheaven.com/family.html

But these look funky. Anyone have experience with any of these?

Should I go with DLP Link? It seems they would be the simplest, but the emitter version sound like they are more compatible with newer setups should I upgrade my tv at some point.

Thanks all.

I have 3 pairs of the UC DLP link glasses, 2 pair of the Viewsonics, and 1 pair of Optoma. I find the UC much more comfortable than either the Viewsonics/Optomas. All 3 can and do exhibit rainbows which are annoying on light colored backgrounds. That is why I have ordered 1 pair of Crystal Eyes 5 DLP Link glasses that eliminate the rainbows. CE5 are much more expensive though, although they are rechargeable via usb instead of batteries.

Be careful with emitter glasses with DLP displays. Some of them wash out blacks and lose contrast because they don't properly block the DLP link flash. Head over the 3D Tech Talk section for more info.
