Ive read other people have problems with the picture actually filckering on and off but thats not what mine is doing. like i said the picture never goes out just a flashing in the background. please sombodody give me some good news.

I've had my 73738 just about the same amount of time and its still as bright as new with 2700 hrs, I had the light engine replaced around 5 months ago for the left side flicker the problem returned about a month afterwards and Mitsubishi shipped out a replacement bulb, out of curiosity I left the old bulb in and the flicker went away on its own and remained stable until the set was moved for cleaning behind it , this leads me to suspect the bulb may not be seated correctly and is sensitive to movement, as a suggestion I would try pulling the bulb out and putting it back in or cranking the bulb setting to bright. I would still have a replacement on hand just in case of failure!
