My L75-A94 is blurry in the bottom left corner. Is there any way to fix this?
post #2374 of 2625
Hello,
Has anyone combined this tv with wall mounted speakers. I already have the speakers installed. I'm guessing with the 15" depth this set-up may not work functionally and aesthetically?

Thank you

Sorry I dont have a fix. I had the same problem with my new A91. The bottom area of the screen was out of focus. Had to ship it back to Amazon because I am in Canada and there are no Mitsu waranty repair people here. Mitsu does not sell anything in Canada. ( I drove over the border to UPS store to pick it up, and drove back over the border to return it. ) I tried to find a cure on line same as you, but had no luck. I really liked the TV otherwise and wanted to keep it, but that bottom screen was a big distraction.
post #2376 of 2625
I read in these forums that the screen corner could be out of position. The solution was to gently push on the screen (with a towel to protect it), or use a suction cup to gently pull it, until it snaps back into place, whichever direction improves the focus.
post #2377 of 2625
For those of you having the studder issue watching TV: I contacted Mits about this issue and was told by their rep that they knew about the issue and I would be receiving an update. I asked whether this would be in the form of firmware upgrade or if they would send someone out. The rep told me he was not sure, but I would be receiving a call soon.

Any word on a firmware update?

I'm GOING to be a Laservue a94 owner real soon But I've got a question. Reading the posts on this thread, I do understand it supports 1920 x 1080 as a desktop resolution.

Now Look at this 1920 x 1080 desktop "screenshot" from my current Samsung DLP img560.imageshack.us/img560/204/testca.png (3MB warning)

This is 1080i (not p) desktop and all the fonts are too small to read (not to mention in program icons like drawing tools in flash and photo shop etc...) It's not ideal to work with... (some of you may see it as normal, but I assure you viewing it from my screen the fonts are tiny tiny.) (tried adjusting DPI and font size, not much help..)

Here's where I'm getting at and request answers about.. The native resolution on my screen is 720 and it looks real nice. I was wondering if 1080 on the laservue will look similar to the way 720 looks on my current screen. Visible, easy on the eyes (bigger and readable fonts and icons). All operating at 60hz. (not eye scrambling 30).

As 720 is "recommended" with my display, will 1080 be the "recommended" on the laservue?

Well, if the screen size remains the same and your viewing distance doesn't change, going from 720p to 1080p will make everything on your desktop (font sizes, etc.) smaller, not larger. However, you can switch your Windows desktop to 720p if you find you need to make things appear larger - the TV will scale it up to 1080p to make use of the entire screen.

Also keep in mind that the DLP rear projectors have overscan, so part of your Windows desktop (~5%) will be off the screen on all 4 sides. You can get around this by creating a custom resolution that you switch to when you want to use your Windows desktop and then switch back to 1080p when watching media (Bluray, DVD, TV, whatever else you use the HTPC for). How you create the custom resolution depends on which brand of video card you have (ATI/AMD, nVidia, Intel integrated graphics, etc.).

Thanks for your immediate response I think you've answered my question. The 1080 desktop will appear viewable on the Laservue. You reminded me of when I used to play around with my old monitor years and years back... a 1024 x 768 rated screen displaying 1280 x 1024 (appeared small). So the Laservuew is rated 1080, it will allow for complete display of the large size. Thanks!! (also overscan is a key sign that it will appear big and visible on the large display).
post #2382 of 2625
I find that putting the TV and other monitors at it's native resolution helps maintain clear sharp fonts and images. I have had this problem in the past and instead of making the font size larger, I used a large font desktop theme. I used to do this in XP but have not tried in 7 and other operating systems. I still have a 720P DLP and hope to upgrade it soon, but I have repaired it recently and it has not totally died yet. I do not know how much smaller it will look at 1080P.

I purchased the truedepth 3d glasses for dlp
says they should work with later nodels mitsubishis but i cant get them to work with my tv, the xpand 3dg 10 work just fine while the x1o3 xpand glasses didnt
does anyone know of any other models that WILL WORK with laservue l75 a94 right off the bat
or how to fix this?

I am not familiar with TrueDepth 3D glasses. Mitsubishi recommends the XPAND 3DG-X103 and X103 Universal IR Glasses for use with the L75-A94. Since you say your 3DG-X103 glasses work just fine, I would stick with them. If the 3DG-X103 glasses are not working and your lighting is not the issue (halogen lighting, fluorescent lighting and direct sunlight can sometimes disrupt IR signals), then either your TV or the glasses could be defective, or, more likely, your menu settings are not correct. Please refer to pages 26-27 of your owner's guide for more details, but some things to check in the Picture > 3D Mode menu are as follows: Make sure you have selected On in Source Format, as well as Automatic (if your 3D source device is HDMI 1.4a compliant) or Checkerboard (if your source device is not 1.4a compatible). If the image does not appear correct (e.g., objects appear to be moving in instead of out), select Reverse in that same menu. Also, make sure you haven't selected Off in the menu section for the glasses emitter (or Off for DLP Link, if using TrueDepth glasses). The menu Off settings for the IR and DLP Link emitters disables their output. You would select Off for the IR glasses emitter only in the unlikely event that your IR glasses (i.e., the 3DG-X103) are causing interference with your other devices. In that scenario, you would want to use DLP Link glasses (such as TrueDepth), not IR glasses. DLP Link uses a brief flash of white light between video frames as the synch signal. However, due to the persistence of vision effect, this can noticeably reduce overall black levels, so I would first try to make your 3DG-X103 IR glasses work. If you really don't like the 3DG-X103 glasses and you can't get your TrueDepth glasses to work, you might try the Optoma BG-ZD101, which are also DLP Link. The key is that more than one synch method can't be used simultaneously: either IR or DLP Link can be used, but not both together. Finally, make sure the dual emitters on the lower front bezel of your L75-A94 are not blocked and that your IR glasses have a clear line of sight to them (this is not an issue for DLP Link glasses, since the synch signal comes from the video screen itself). If you are still having a problem, you can call 1-877-675-2224 for assistance.

For the standard X-103 you need to program them to the Panasonic setting (#4). These glasses were introduced when Mitsubishi was using the Samsung IR protocol with the IR emitter in their 3D adapter kit for older models. When Mitsubishi introduced newer TVs and added the IR emitter, they went with the Panasonic IR protocol because that was the basis of the first multi-brand standards for IR protocols. The X-103 will work fine if you program them to the Panasonic syste.

The 3DG-X103 will auto-detect the correct protocol - these came out when Mitsubishi introduced the models with the built-in IR emitters.

I am a new owner of an L75-A91 in Canada that I got from a company in Mississauga, ON that deals in refurbs. I got a year aftermarket warranty and haven't seen any issues with the set in the Month that I've owned it.

I was wondering however, if anyone knew of an ISF calibrator in the Southern Ontario region that has experience calibrating these sets? I'm aware that the technician would need access to more high-end calibration/light sensors to get the best out of these Laservue TVs. If you know of any in my area, please reply with their details so I can contact them to schedule calibration of my new awesome Laservue.

Thanks
EJ

IMG-20111113-00029.jpg 128k .jpg file Hi,
as we say in France, "better late than never": I just want to say to anyone outside USA, Japan or Australia, and dreaming about getting one of these wonderfull Mitsubishi Laservue that thanks to RU Geekman I get mine at home in France. This was a real adventure and requested so much effort that both me and RU Geekman learnt a lot about importation laws and processes in France, which I think is probably one of the worst to face.
I can tell RU Geekman make it the best it could be to get the TV arriving in a perfect state, thanks to a very good "packaging" with a wood crate.
I'm using it since winter 2011 without any trouble but with so much pleasure :-)
Thanks again RU Geekman !!

You are most welcome, sir!

I think I remember that calibrating the Laservue require unusual color sensor (or should I say color probe?) . I would like to try to calibrate it with help of some french people from the the french forum hcfr (like avs but in france) who made a software that some avs guys here are improving :-) but I would like to get advice about the appropriate sensor/probe to be used?
Thank you in advance!!

It gets expensive. To accurately read laser you need a 5nm or better meter - $10,000 on up. An X-Rite i1Pro is a 10nm meter and although not as accurate as a 5nm meter, it will give results that are visually excellent. I would never trust an inexpensive colorimeter except for a chroma 5 or a Display 3 and then only when profiled from a spectro.
post #2391 of 2625
Hi,
thank you very much for this precise explanation buzzard767.
Indeed that's going very expensive :-) So If I get it correctly, using a Xrite i1Pro would be "the least bad" solution for a none professional guy to make a calibration that might bring a better quality picture. I will try to have a look at the price this can be found in Europe, eventually a none brand new one. Is there a valuable difference between the i1Pro and the new i1Pro 2 ? Or that does not worth the price to go for a i1Pro 2 instead of a 1iPro ?

I red a lot on AVS thread about HCFR V3 software, and especially many discussion arround "i1 Display 3" that would be better (if I understood correctly) than i1Pro for some part of the calibration process? And that would still be the case with i1Pro 2 ?
With your comment I quoted here I'm wondering if I understood correctly then what would be the correct sentence :
1/ i1 Display 3 would be the most accurate (affordable) tools to make the calibration but you need to "profile" it first with a i1Pro (2) ?
OR
2/ both i1 Display 3 & i1 Pro 2 are needed to perform the all calibration process ?

Thanks in advance for your coming reply...

Profiling a colorimeter from a spectro has two advantages, speed and low light accuracy. In the case of the LaserVue or any TV with only 2 point Grayscale adjustments you don't need to be concerned with low light accuracy as 30% of maximun luminance will be as low as you go and the i1Pro is fine at this level. If you're having trouble then use 40% but that is seldom the case. For this reason there is no need to buy a D3. If you have a TV with 10 point grayscale and gamma controls like the Panasonic XXVT50 it is another matter.

There is no appreciable difference between the i1Pro and the "2" except for time between dark readings and if you read the following referenced thread you'll learn that you don't have to take i1Pro dark readings every 10 minutes, especially with color gamut. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1323457/i1pro-dark-readings-i-dont-get-it

I own a L65-a90, it's begun to have many, many white dots across the screen. My understanding is that this is due to mirrors in the light engine failing. I've contacted Mitsubishi and they very graciously offered to replace the set with L75-a94 for $500. I've accepted this offer and will use this new TV in my basement since a 75 inch TV won't fit in the entertainment center in my living room. I've determined that the light engine can be rebuilt, does anyone in the community know of a repair shop in the southern New Jersey area that could rebuild the light engine on my L65-a90? I found someone on Ebay who can repair the engine but I would have to remove the light engine, ship it to him, and then re-install it. That is probably beyond my skill set. Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. My apologies if this has been already addressed, I searched the forum but couldn't find any reference to a similar problem.

Hi,

I've recently get an android app to use a tablet as a network remote control for my Denon AVR 4310. this is working wuit nicely and I'm looking for the same for my L75-A91. I found one for Apple world here (it is written a s handling L75-A94 but nothing about L75-A91 so not sure it can work with it, did anyone tried?)
http://download.cnet.com/TV-Control/3000-2094_4-75358260.html?tag=mncol;1
but I didn't found anything yet for android. Does any one have something on this topic?
Thanks in advance...

My L75-A91 is doing the same thing, At first it was one white dot and then another and now I see one that come and goes, seems that the air from the fan moves the portion that want to pill off.
I am going to call mitt to see what they can do.
post #2398 of 2625
JKilgore, Just wondering if you had any resolution to the "Studder" / "Judder" issue. I have the same issue.
post #2399 of 2625
My L75-A91 Has developed an unusual Problem; The screen start having white dots. I have so far 5 and still more to come.
Call mitt. and they are working with me about the issue, they said that it is the light engine mirror pilling off. Hope none of you develop this problem.
I will keep you post about what will happen.
If some of you thinks that it is something else, ---Please let me know--.
post #2400 of 2625
Just out of curiosity, does anyone know the what the price of a replacement light engine is running these days, if you had to cover the cost out of pocket?
