I can't speak to how well the blue mode works, but I know that it was there.

Thks. That will help. I'm researching as much as possible so my setup will go as smooth as possible. I will have a lot to configure once all of the deliveries are made. I'm hoping to make my purchases in August.

Quick question, what's the difference between this year's 42 models and last year's 40 models? And what's with the C models? Trying to compare TVs on Mitsubishi's website is just about impossible.

Thanks! smile.gif

My wife now wants built-ins along the entire wall about 12" off the ground (perfectly matches the height of the fireplace landing). [...additional text and pictures removed].

That's pretty much exactly how my WD-92840 arrived back in August of last year. Except with my luck, the truck the guys were using was a rental because their main truck was in the shop for repairs. Additionally, the gate hydraulics wouldn't allow it to go down. This got me thinking "here we go". But the driver did a literal "Fonzarelli" on the hydraulics with a hammer and got the gate lowered. The HDTV was right on the edge the entire time but feeling the weight of it myself, I could understand that it wasn't going anywhere on its own and wasn't top heavy with much of its weight in the bottom.

I know this has been covered before...but

I'm so confused.......Can someone tell me the difference between these glasses as there is a 12 dollars difference , I am guess the Batteries: 1 Lithium Metal batteries required. (included). I'm just trying to find the correct glasses for my model WD-82840.

I do know I want to the the Xpand brand after reading Wesley Hester post http://www.avsforum.com/t/1405484/verified-differences-between-3d-glasses


The Glasses


Mitsubishi 3DGX103 XPAND 3D Glass - Black
http://www.amazon.com/Mitsubishi-3DGX103-XPAND-3D-Glass/dp/B005HFJFKO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8

and
Mitsubishi 3DG-X103 3D Shutter Glasses
http://www.amazon.com/Mitsubishi-3DG-X103-3D-Shutter-Glasses/dp/B0054QGNKG/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1343135377&sr=1-2&keywords=3DGX103

Thank you

The only difference in the glasses you are looking at is that one is sold directly from Amazon and the other from a third party seller QualityMatters-DC. Personally, I try to always buy directly from Amazon for the return policy (third party too but faster service when using Amazon directly).

eek.gif You guys have some bad/almost bad stories of delivery, that it makes me cringe on what I might encounter. It will not stop me from ordering, but it will make me diligent in micromanaging each step of the process to avoid as much issues as possible.

I tried programming the remote with the Mitsubishi codes by pressing tv and ok for 3 seconds, it blinks twice, enter the codes, then the tv mode button should blink 3 times for a correct entry but I went through all the codes and none of them worked. I only got 1 solid blink instead of 3.
Now the volume doesn't work between the ATT U-verse remote and the tv. Then I tried using the 955 code to program the volume to work on the tv and it does the same thing.
I don't have a receiver or surround sound yet. The TV's remote volume works and is maxed out all the way and the tv is barely at a sound level to be able to watch tv and hear whats going on.
I reset the Att Uverse box and it didn't help either.
Can anybody help me out with this.
Thanks
Jason

My 92840 will be here Friday. Just got the first coat of paint on the stand. 2x4's, 3/4 inch MDF, some taping compound and black paint. I made one similar for my 73C9. This one's 13.5 inches tall. Just enough room for the center channel to sit under it. Not sure if I uploaded the picture correctly. Will see.

I hope my Mac Mini syncs up with the new set as easily as the old one did. Anyone else try that with one of these?

Called Amazon, and they are sending me a replacement for the WD-73742 that came with 493 hours of service already. They will pick up the old one when they deliver the new. At least I can watch it until the new one arrives. Thanks for the advice, especially tombobcat who PM'd me the hours on his new 73742.

Congratulations on the resolution. Proof of why I love to order direct from Amazon even it they are a few $$ more. The piece of mind is priceless.

I probably should have just done that right away, but I wanted to check out the issue first to make sure it wasn't just a software bug. It seems like a big hassle, until you realize that they will deliver the TV right to my home theater room and also take the old one away. Not really a hassle at all.

I always prefer Amazon for my all purchase and make sure its shipped and sold by Amazon.com only to get piece of mind. I don't like third party seller which is always painful even though PaultsTV is listed there. Amazon rocks in there service and stand behind the customer to make them happy.biggrin.gif

Dont worry about the shipping too much...
The day after I got my tv, the tv fell down face first onto the floor from a 15 inch tv stand.
The screen even popped out from the top.
I put it back on the stand, put the screen back in.
And it works just fine smile.gif (no scratches)
thank you baby Jesus

I would probably still be recovering from a massive heart failure after that. I freak out when my kids bump into the screen. I'm glad to hear it is still working. Any lasting damage?

I'll bet the mirror is "dangling by a thread".
post #3168 of 3948
The screen barely popped out of the frame so was very easy to pop back in.
There was no earthquake.. I think the neighbor must of hit the wall really hard and my 30 pound center speaker fell on tv
and caused it to fall down...

There is no lasting damage. I am really happy I got this tv.
So durable!!
post #3169 of 3948
Is there a way to turn on and off the tv without having to see Mitsubishi
advertise their phone number as if the tv is going to go bad any day now.

you could modify the firmware on the usb stick. At least you could on the x33, x35 series stuff. It used linux. and the .picture files were on the flash, including the demo pics.

Be extremely careful - you could render your tv useless. I would not use microsoft paint or windows picture editor to switch those out to say "Goodbye from the Johnson Home Theater"

I have a 90 pound German Shepherd, that "attacks" any animal on TV...real or animated. Needless to say, after she almost went thru my 73740 a week after I bought it, I have learned to get real fast with the "previous" button, when said animals show up.

And by the way, notice sometime how many freaking dogs/cats/critters are on TV commercials...it's ridiculous. smile.gif

I had a cat like that once. However, most of the pets I've had, both cats and dogs, were oblivious of any TV.

i had a doberman, that went berserko over a flashlight beam on the floor cealing etc. chased it everywhere into a slobering frenzy, Then LEDS got popular, it was even more intense. it was something. Had Hip dispacia and we had to put her to sleep. The pains were unbearable for her. She used to be sooooo active. and then in a matter of weeks .....total discomfort.

Let me know if that works out for you.
I don't think I am capable of doing something like that.

Why use picture editor in the first place?
No need to say goodye and good morning every time tv is turned off and on lolol.
Perhaps that would make the task easier.

Sorry for your loss. I have a Pug that does the same thing. goes nuts with flashlights. She also attacks my TV when anyone swings a golf club. Strange behavior that keeps me from playing Tiger Woods or watching golf on my 82740.

yeah, i went with small lab / cocker mixes


we have a yellow and black one. They are great personalities and temperament, Dobies are great until they forget their not a lap dog wink.gif

Overall first impressions of my 82740. 2D picture is outstanding. I set the picture to natural, tweeked it a little, and it looks great. I will get it calibrated at a later date. I watched several 3D films last night and was dissapointed. I switched from natural to bright and the picture was still to dim to enjoy. I have an LG 475300 in my office and the picture is substantially brighter even with more ambient light. Passive 3D isn't as smooth as the mits but easier to watch. I don't know if it's the tv or the glasses. I have the expand 103's and they seem very tinted. Not sure if there are better options out there. It's not a deal breaker as the 2D picture is stunning. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated as I would rather watch 3D in my home theater environment
