Any MITS DLP techs out there.. NEED HELP!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Guys and Gals need some help!

I posted awhile ago about my replacement bulb that was ordered from Shopjimmys for my 2010 WD-82838 DLP TV. It didn't fit the OEM slot in the TV and I had to swap the new bulb to the old housing to get it to fit. After that the TV fired up and was bright but short lived. TV bulb appeared to be flickering badly after about 5 minutes and then TV shut off with a pop and solid red light. This happened twice. I then swapped the OEM bulb back to the OEM housing and TV came back on but flickered occasionally but not as bad as the replacement bulb.

So I ordered and received the MITSUPARTS OEM bulb today. BAD NEWS!!!!

Installed new OEM bulb/housing and the TV started flickering badly immediately. TV shut off with a pop and the solid red light!!!

I don't have an extended warranty and I'm horrified. I hope that main board or light engine didn't go bad. But I don't understand why the OEM (dim) bulb flickered a little but didn't shut the TV off with the red light??

Mitsubishi is offering to nothing for me even though I had it notated on my account at 90 days that my TV was flickering.

I don't know what to do next... Any suggestions??

I replied back to your pm. Sorry I haven't check the board the last few days.

It gets a little confusing when you are posting the same issue in two different places.

Sorry JS.

I back up and posted in the main forum since I wasn't getting many hits under the 2010**** thread. Should I delete this one?

No. No need to apologize.

Hope you get your issue resolved.
