When you see something that is maybe a digital color blue, there is ahloaround that.. and when you should see a white shirt for example, the shadows are all blue instead of maybe gray. I was watching Indiana jones on the Blueray and it seems that all of the light reflections.. eyes, shadows extra look alittle blue sometimes and very blue other times. I have read Poodles post on the LE cleaning and I am prepared to attempt it, just thought I would make certain the issue could be the same, as I have not seen the problem described as blue.. thnak you.

Have you looked at the setting & tweaks thread? Take it out of torch mode, change color temp, brightness, contrast, use a calibration DVD, etc. You might also want to take a look at this thread where the WD-XX734 Owner's hang out.

Thanks for the info, I do have it out of torch mode. And yes, I did have it calibrated several times actually with the DVD. It seems as though I see some new flaw in the quality every day. The real shame is I have done nothing but bragg about the quality if this TV for them money since I bought.. and actually sold several to my customers. Good thing is they do not have bad pictured yet, and I sold them all warrantys... not me though..Dummy. Any way, I will check out that other thread, thanks for the input.

bwall23; It should be the same software. The only fifference between chassis is the lamp/ballast with the higher output and probably the optics. The source is the source. Mits in California (not India or wherever their outsourced company is located).

Thanks videobruce. Please post if you're successful in getting Mits to send you the firmware update and I'll do the same.

That's called two things;
1. Human nature, something has drawn attention to a surrounding of yours and now you are 'tuned' to it. Which usually means you are looking/listening etc. for something wrong.
2. You have graduated from Video 101 and now are stepping up in knowledge.
What you see (or hear) now has probably always been like that, but you never noticed. We are waiting for those screen shots. Please take several and post the best.

bwall23; I will.

Doing some moving to different inputs (or other video changes, I can't recall), screen goes black for a few seconds. There is about a 5 second delay using VCR, when I hit rewind or play from rewind, etc. (video thru 'yellow' video cable to AVR).

I'm curious about this as well. With my media PC the graphics driver gives me the choice of output formats, either RGB or YCbCr444.

If anyone has any blooming you need to do the clean. I did it on mine on Sunday. It took about an hour and a half start to complete finish. WOW. Huge difference. I forgot how good that TV looked when new. Several times that day both my wife and I commented on just how good it looked.

Do it. It's easy.

Did you use poodlehead's instructions? Any cautions or hints?

I found that the 734 (as most), use YCbCr.
In addition, another question I had earlier on 734 having 24P...
In my Denon 1909 'Status' (I think), it showed my monitor (734) as capable of:
1080P 24Hz (is related to 24P)
1080P 60Hz

I did and really no hints. Very little to screw up. I loosed one alignment screw and when I put it back in it was perfect. If not it's easy to do. The film on my bulb came off easy. I used diluted rubbing alcohol and a coffee filter (leaves no lint). There isn't much verbiage with the poodlehead pics but you don't need them. Just look at Pic 1 and compare to Pic 2. See which part is missing..take that off. No special tools needed except maybe a really small phillips (eyeglass size) screwdriver.

The worst part is the 20 screws on the back.

Thanks NetJunkie, I'm going to have to do it sooner or later and I'm trying to cover all the bases before I begin.

I would go with a Sammy LED driven DLP. Period. Greensidh TV on the planet. Complete opposite of a Plasma. Like comparing Rapid Transit to a Hummer.

Just too bad it doesn't have two RF inputs, TVGOS & 1394 outputs (for AVHDD's). All of which are useful, pratical and worthwhile.

Thanks,Bruce
I was thinking exactly that The DLP+LED Sammy.Now I have to decide on 61" or 67"......

Hi, I've searched here and I've googled and don't find anything. Maybe someone here has seen this and I'm just not using the right search terms.

My Mits is a WD-57831 just over 18 months old. It has 2164 hours on original bulb and has firmware V33+ 008.01

No complaints on PQ

Recently I have been plagued by a gray rectangle covering most of the viewing area of analog channels. I can't say for sure it never happens on a digital channel, but what testing I have done suggests it is on analog only. I have begun to do the following:

When the rectangle appears, I can press Menu 2-4-7-0 and look for digital signal strength. It has always been N/A (so far). By the way, as soon as I press "Menu," the rectangle disappears and if I could stand to watch the picture through the info screen, that would be a plan because the rectangle does not appear as long as the info is displayed. As soon as I hit "Exit," the rectangle returns as before.

When changing channels, the rectangle disappears momentarily and the new channel appears normal for a few seconds before the rectangle reappears.

The rectangle appears to have an aspect ratio of 4:3 but it does not cover the vertical area completely -- I'd say about 80%. The picture is visible through the rectangle, but the density of the gray is rather high. The areas around the rectangle appear normal.

I have a cable card and a DVR/Tuner. Last night, the TV was set to the DVR/Tuner and we watched for hours without any rectangle appearance. Today, I tuned to an analog channel using the cable card, got the gray rectangle, and now switching to the DVR/Tuner does not remove the rectangle which appears even when the DVR is tuned to digital channels.



I purchased the set from an independent dealer of long standing in our community (50+ years) who has a good service department. But, when I call them, they will send a truck to take the set to the shop, and I will have to pay some minimum amount just to get that far. Before I do that, I'd like to know if anyone who has seen it would tell me what might be causing it.

Is there anything I have failed to disclose that would be helpful?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Can someone please help me find a solution for my problem. When I change my color settings like my picture mode than my contrast and so on....when i turn it off and on again my settings go back to the factory settings, even my perfect color adjustments go back to factory. Why does something so simple have to be so difficult? Am I missing something or is my TV messed up? I called support but could not find anything as to why it does that. My set up is simple: Ps3 to receiver, satellite to receiver and than from receiver to tv all through hdmi. This problem has just come up recently for some reason color settings default back to factory. Any help out there? Thanks.
post #8867 of 9409
Make sure you are setting things for each input independently. They should "stick" to whatever you set them. My set is 57831, but should be the same procedure.

Input: Ant-1
Video: Brilliant, Bright, Normal and I use left or right arrow to cycle to Normal
Video: (again) moves to another setting

repeated touching of the Video button on the remote should cycle the video through all of its settings, color temp, contrast, brightness, etc. When you are finished, you can touch Exit or just let it expire (about 7 seconds and it will disappear). Next time you touch Video, the setting you were last viewing will be seen again.

Same thing with Audio.

But, now switch Input to DVD (for example). Touch Video and it will be Brilliant. That doesn't mean your settings didn't "stick." It means you haven't set for DVD, so go ahead and do that.

Suppose you had component cabling from your DVD player. When you disconnect your component cables from the DVD player and install the HDMI instead, that input becomes HDMI, and you have to set those.

In a way, it's a pain in the butt; but in another way, it is nice to be able to have independent control of each device.

See if that doesn't help you. Also, I got some benefit from "reading the manual" if you haven't already tried that!

I had a problem similar to this when my set was new. It was diagnosed as a bad EEPROM. Once it was replaced, I never had the problem again.

how was it replaced? did you have a tv repair man come out to fix it?

Have you tried removing the side access ports on either side of the housing and reached in to wipe the light engine outer lens which shines on the large rear mirror?

The problem is electronic, not physical. When viewing a digital HD channel, the PQ is flawless (well, as flawless as my aged eyes can detect).

This phenomenon is a sudden appearance of a sharply defined rectangle of what I would call 64% gray scale transparency in a 4:3 aspect covering 80% of the vertical screen.

It does not appear at all, ever, when playing DVD. It has something to do with the TUNER!

P.S. I suspected the cable dard, but I have swapped out the cable card with a new (different) one and the same thing happens.

I had the company I bought it from fix it. There was no charge as the set had the problem from the first day.

Got the new WD-65735 Setup and looking good. I LOVE THIS TV!

Whotony,
Seeing your # of hours, I was wondering if there is a place in the menu (I have not seen it) where the Mitsub. shows how many hours it has on it? Or you just estimating by avg hours /day x # of days?

It's been posted dozens of times. It's in the Service Menu (2470) as lamp hours.

That is the Yamaha YSP-1. Not a great buy.
post #8879 of 9409
To anyone that has a model with TVGOS (even if they aren't using it) and either has a OTA antenna connected and/or cable TV without a STB confirm the number of digits shown in the disgnostic screen of the TVGOS menu under Setup (using the code 753159852)?

Not the NetCommand screen, but the diag. System Stats screen that is accessed by going to the menu bar, toggle to Setup, drop down to the first entry and enter 753159852. It's only a diag. screen, not a Service Menu. Nothing can be changed here.
