Click on Buy Local and see if there is a dealer near you.

Strange, the Mitsubishi link shows no dealers within 100 miles of my zip code, yet there is an authorized dealer less than 15 miles away with the Laservue in stock.

AHHHHHH! My TV has a bug, literally. It must have flown into the fans and now it is flying around inside! DIE! Haha...so...that's a first, a physical bug. Or...not...since that's how it got its name.

Going to see if I can coax him out before he dies in there...but unlikely.

Just put the TV into brilliant mode for a few minutes. That should take care of the bug either by scaring it out or by zapping it dead.

This happened to me, as well.

While watching a movie (Valkyrie), there appeared to be a shadow of the film crew's helicopter on the treetops during an aerial shot. I thought to myself, "what a goof to mess that up". In the next scene, a Nazi soldier used his cigarette to kill a bug on his hand, and I wondered why he didn't kill the other one next to it.

I then realized what it might be, and rewound the movie to check the scenes again. There was no helicopter shadow and no second bug on the soldier, so I went up to the TV to investigate. Sure enough, there was a bug in the TV, and it appeared to be just inside the screen.

I tapped the screen to scare it, but it must have been on the mirror. Then all of a sudden, it flew to the lens and appeared giant-sized as it walked across the screen, which scared me instead. I jumped back, and instinct took over as I ran across the room to get away. After catching my breath and laughing at myself, I opened the side port and retrieved the bug with a paper towel.

Re: Anyone else have these same markings?

Yep. I Received my new L75A91 a couple of days ago and am seeing those same exact smudges. They appear to become brighter when the room is lit brighter and I guess are reflections of the room light.

Pervenets



Local repairman just visited my place for evaluation and He pointed out those white spots himself without me mentioning anything as I thought it was normal. He later asked me to take some pictures at night to verify if it affects picture quality and to my surprise it really does (see attached picture).

Haha...yeah, mine was a little gnat so it wasn't so bothersome. But, it certainly did show the light deformity; as the bug got to the top of the screen it was tiny and towards the bottom larger and oddly shaped.

It's gone now, probably died and fell to the bottom out of sight. But, how did you open the side port to get yours out? I was afraid to open the set to get mine out.

How is it working for you? I've still been having a shudder/stutter issue with the image when I game or watch heavy action blurays. I tried playing GoW3 in 3d and it was stuttering so much it made me a little nauseous to play. Still dealing with Mitsubishi to have another shop come out and take a look at it, so hopeful they can fix it.

Sorry for the late response.

3D is solid, I use "Brilliant" mode when in 3D, loving GOW3! No ghosting/crosstalk as far as I've been playing.

I have the L75A91 model.

I use Samsung SSG-2100AB 3D glasses. I bought 8 of them off a South Korean Ebay seller for about $80 a pair last yr. Same authentic ones you get in the stores.

No problems that I can see so far, thank GOD. Hopefully your issue gets resolved soon.

3D in GOW3 really gives the environment depth & brings it alive for me, glad 3D can also be used for multiplayer!

I've been switching back & forth between GOW3 & Rage(id), Rage is another game I wish had implemented 3D, the campaign graphics are awesome, environments looks real, would have been bad azz in 3D! oh well!

My young kids came running to find me saying that there was a spider on the tv. I came in with a paper towel in hand ready to play Terminator. Sure enough -there he was crawling down the middle of the LV screen. I went to scoop him up and he diappeared! No wait - the picture on the screen went to a light background and there he was again! Keep in mind my face was 12 inches from the screen at this point. It was not until I wiped over the spider and seeing him still sitting there that I realized he was right BEHIND the screen.
After a couple of minutes we watched as he slowly lowered himself on his silky thread and disappeared below the bottom of the screen never to be seen again.
I hope I don't turn the set on one day to see a web!

This is exactly the same as last year. I used Mitsubishi's site to locate resellers, and had to drive 90 miles each way just to see one. ...and, while I didn't buy from that reseller, it was pretty nice. Nice enough that I made my purchase (I took delivery of my L74-A91 a year ago next month)!

My bug was in a lamp based set. They have round doors on each side held in by a single screw for access.

Thanks! In for one.

I bought one last year at $3,500 at the time.

is there any reviews/ testing on this set yet .....black levels, 3d, and contrast ratio
post #2361 of 2625

It's an ancient tradition. Mitsubishis are always under-reviewed. But you can read user reviews on Amazon, and glean interesting information from other users on this forum.

I think it was in the 2011 Mitsubishis 3D thread that someone had the same reaction to the various DLP sets that I had at Paul's TV. I came expecting to like the 92 inch the most, liked the 73 inch model, but came away most impressed with the 75 inch Laservue... whereas earlier models of the LaserVue had not impressed me. The 75 inch LaserVue is wonderfully sharp, bright, and colorful. The other fellow had the same reaction as me, and was told that industry people were buying these, and calibrating them to perfection.

It really looks like Mitsubishi got it together with this iteration of LaserVue. Now all somebody has to do is convince me that the laser light is not even possibly hurting my eyes. Yes, I know about diffusion, filters, and all the rest... all I need is a scientific explanation.

But it's a great set, visually, and I think that these DLPs, and the LaserVue in particular, are capable of very fine color reproduction.

I also hope that some good AV Magazine gives this set the kind of analytical review that it deserves.

Can media be streamed to this TV from a pc or smart phone with out going through a device like xbox?
post #2365 of 2625
I also don't see if this is THX certified?

I'd also like to know if you only wanted to spend $2,500 on a TV, is this picture so striking I should find another $2,000 and buy it?

The L75-A91 has a wired LAN input only, so without first hardwiring the set to another device (like an Xbox) with Wi-Fi, you can't stream content to the television wirelessly. Also, any media you stream through your Xbox must be on a device that supports Windows Media Player or Zune software (or, you can use a conversion tool like RealPlayer SP, Nero Move It, Format Factory or DoubleTwist on Flash-based videos, iTunes and other non-Windows-based content). Here is a quick explanation of how to do so. You didn't specify whether you have an older Xbox, which requires a wireless USB adapter, or one of the new models, released last year, which feature integrated wireless. The explanation at the above link is for older Xbox models. Obviously, with the newer Xboxes, you can skip the part about installing the wireless USB adapter. Here and here are links to further information on this topic.

The new L75-A94 has built-in wireless, so as long as your devices have Wi-Fi enabled they should be discoverable by the TV via your home network. Mitsubishi normally doesn't pay to get their sets THX-certified, but you will find that both LaserVue models meet or exceed those performance requirements. Value, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. I wouldn't spend the rent money or take it out of your retirement account to buy this set, but if you can afford it, it's likely you will not be disappointed.

To stream content wirelessly without using something like an XBox, you would want to use a wireless access point. For example, the Apple AirPort Extreme can be configured as a wireless access point. When you configure the AirPort, you tell it to connect wirelessly to your wireless router and then connect 1 or more devices (such as the TV) into the AirPort. The network traffic flow would be:

TV <-> AirPort <-> {air} <-> Wireless Router

Once you do this, all the built in streaming on the TV will work just the same as if you hooked the TV's network port directly to your router (assuming you have a reliable wireless network connection).

If at all possible though, run a network cable from your router to the TV. It should cost a lot less and will be more reliable than wireless.

I'm trying to get my Laservue L65-A90 to communicate with my Denon 2112CI over the Netcommand HDMI. This system has worked using the Netcommand IR emitters, but I would like to simplify things.

I have followed the instructions of the Laservue manual thoroughly. I have the HDMI control enabled on the AVR and Laservue Netcommand "On".
I have also "Learned" the AVR's remote functions into the Laservue's Menu.

I cannot get AVR to respond to volume control or input change requests.

I am out of ideas.


Thanks,

I have a few quick questions, the first is regarding calibration. I paid for the calibration on May 28th, 2011 and scheduled to have the guy come out in early July. When he came out he couldn't find the menu he was looking for (he said he was looking for white balance adjust). Ever since then I've been on and off the phone with Mitsubishi and his company ever since trying to figure out what's going on. I'll admit that my knowledge in this field is very limited, but the Laservue "premier" customer service has been a sham to this point. Which service menu(s) does the calibrator need, and would anybody be willing to provide me with the codes?

Also I'm having a problem with the picture. Every now and then this will happen:



The problem is solved by turning the tv off/on and still happens eventually after a full reset. This is a re manufactured unit and I'm afraid something may have been overlooked. Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

White Balance adjustments are in the User Menu: Menu > Picture > Advanced

Choose either ADV1 or ADV2. The WB controls are the 6 RGB High and Low adjustments.
