My L75-A91 of thirteen months has developed a pulsating of red colors, especially noticeable when the Laservue logo first appears. The extended warranty provider sent out a Mitsubishi repairman who said it was the red laser and the whole light assembly would have to be replaced since it is one sealed unit complete with fans.The service provider said the cost of repair was more than the TV was worth and the part is no longer available. Mitsubishi has, as you all know, dropped out of the DLP business and fired all their tech guys and ceased making parts. I thought a company had to provide parts for at least 7 years? They are still selling the 91, along with the 94 and 96 models. When I questioned customer service at Mitsubishi about how they were going to repair the TVs still under warranty, I was told they will not repair if parts are not available but offer to buy back the TV for about $1000. Is this legal? Are there any others out there who have experienced this? With all the hype and media praise lavished on this TV since 2006, I would think there would be techs who promoted this product screaming foul and holding Mitsubishi accountable. Any suggestions guys other than it sucks to be me with a bad Laservue Mitsubishi?
