All of you guys talk about how many hours your bulb has on it. I have a 73C9, and I dont see any option in the menu to track lamp hours. I even checked the service menu and I see nothing there either.

Hit "menu' then 2-4-7-0. It's not a lamp timer but rather for the set so if the bulb is changed you have to keep track when you changed it since there is no reset.

It's like watching the picutre and then it just kind of jumps or jitters but it's doing it quite often. Does this sound familiar and any ideas on how to correct? I love this tv, but it's really driving me nuts.

Thanks.

Something like that is happening I my set as well. I notice it during the sideline camera during nfl games. It's like the screen "oversharpens" and jitters. I turned off the auto sharpen feature and played with the settings a bit. When I compared the picture to my Samsung dlp, the screen is dimmer and colors a little washed out. I just ordered a new bulb.....hopefully that's all it is.

That's more than 7 hours a day, isn't it?

Hey everyone, my head hurts.

I've been searching around, but can someone tell me what is the latest and greatest for 3d for the 73C9 tv?

I see the mitsu starter kits out there, but I would like to get rechargeable glasses.

Can you all share what you recommend?

Yeah something ridiculous like that. I remember the wife griping at some point as I was always calibrating the TV. She somehow thought I worked on it more than watched it. I checked the clock and it had 3400 hours then. I told her and she shut right up. When I ugrade that hours in service clock is going to be very persuasive and helpful. The argument hasn't broken out yet because I am on the fence on the direction of my next set. By the time I get decided on what to buy next she can't say something about not using it enough.

It is all meaningless to her anyway as she rarely watches TV. Short attention span

It is funny, I can buy all the computers, audio gear anything I want and she never pays any attention. But when you change the TV in the living room even with her short attention span, that will be noticed. As will the $4-5k out of the checking account.

At the rate I am going I will need to do another lamp replacement by March Madness. On the big sets they really get dark at 3K hours.

This will sound crazy. We're right at 2 years on our 73c9 and it has 7624 hours on it. We only watch a few movies a week, but this TV is on whenever anyone is home. Nobody around here can stand the house being quiet I guess. I changed the bulb at about 5000 hours.

Still have 3 years of warranty left. Probably a good thing.

Not really, I could easily see that if my kids didn't have their own tv's.

No my wife watches a lot of network tv then I catch up on shows late at night. Maybe 2 or 3 movies a weekend, gaming and sports.

Not a good idea to buy from ebay unless it's an oem bulb and it comes with a housing.
post #10517 of 11220
I guess the answer to this bulb time is multiply the number of house members . That is where the hours add up,only two here and we watch maybe 4 hours of television on an average day. I guess the good news is , I still have a good bit of life left with the original bulb.

Just picked up a used WD60C9 unit yesterday and have it hooked up with FiOS HD cable box and an Xbox 360, both over HDMI.

Both produce sound fine through the TV speakers. However, when I connect my Sony receiver to the digital coax output I only get sound through my surround sound system for the Xbox. I get no sound at all for the FiOS cable.

Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Any help is appreciated! I look forward to owning this awesome piece of equipment for many years!
post #10519 of 11220
You shouldn't use the digital coax output on the TV.

What Sony receiver do you have?

It comes with a housing. Let you know how it works out.

I have an old HT-4800DP. It only has stereo rca inputs for each channel, no hdmi inputs, and one optical in.

I only use it for audio.

On my old tv I ran HDMI from each device to the TV and then used the optical out of the TV to the receiver. Given that this tv only has a digital coax output, I am running that into the digital coax input on the Sony receiver (normally used for the Sony DVD player that is shipped with the system).
post #10522 of 11220
Try checking the FiOS boxes HDMI output setting for audio and setting that permantly to PCM. That TV cannot processe Dolby Digital via HDMI (most TVs from that year and before do not).

If you don't mind I am curious as to why.

It's the only way I can get digital sound through my system- antenna to TV, TV Coax to controller.

Because the vast majority are limited to stereo.

With your other equipment, you're better off either running them to your receiver via HDMI and then HDMI to your display (depending on the receiver), or running them to the display via HDMI and then optical to the receiver.

My TV just shut off and flashed the red light. I have never changed the bulb. Its two year old 65c9. What could it be. I was able to turn it back on and its working now but is this an issue that will haunt me?

After 2 years my tv has started "over sharpening" certain scenes during football games. Its weird and hard to describe but it only happens during football games.

Ive turned off the auto sharpening feature and recalibrated with a thx dvd but I can definitely tell its starting to dim (especially when compared with my samsung dlp upstairs).

Ordered a new bulb from mitsubishi ($120 total), wish me luck!
