I am still curious as lark to see what web pages might look like on the 73" screen. We hooked my buddy's HDMI laptop to it long ago, but I do not recall how actually effective it was for surfing. I will wait until he is back in town to check again, rather than hassle cabling my iMac to it (30' away).

They will look fine. That is a completely different issue. As long as your video canrd can match the panels native resolution (directly, or by using Powerstrip) most anything off your PC will look great.
The exceptions are any photos will have to be scaled up (eg. 1024x768 to 1920x1080 or whatever the TVs' native resolution is).

I ended up doing mine this weekend. Pretty happy with it. I have to make something to help direct the light where I want it, but overall success.

Thanks

I was playing a video game (CODMW2) this weekend, and randomly the TV switch to a different input. I have the 65-wd735.

Has anyone had this happen before?

Thanks for the info.

Hi, all, pardon if this has been discussed. It's a bit of an intimidating task to search 300+ pages of posts...

I just got my Mitsu WD-73737 and I'm liking it to exactly fit the bill, but it has a problem I can't figure a workaround:

If I do a channel scan on the ANT input set to Cable TV, after scans all of the analog channels and it gets to "digital channel 82..." the TV powers off and it crashes with the blinking green power light. I can reproduce this problem repeatedly, and as it stands I have set "Cable TV" and exited but I'll have no channel guide or labels. I'd have to know how to tune directly.

It is by no means a fatal flaw for me because I use a Series 3 TiVo with CableCARD as my primary TV source. I just like having the alternative source if the TiVo is double busy. I also would like for all features of my new TV to work!

I have Comcast Waukegan (IL) with the cable split between the TiVo and the TV. I have a really great RF cable amp and the same direct connect works with the 37" Sharp Aquos LCD I replaced so I know the signal is good. I can direct tune at least the analog channels I've tried so far and I get a fine picture.

I'm guessing this may be fixed with a firmware update, but I haven't found how that can be done. I suppose it requires a tech visit?

If there is a previous discussion on this please point me to it. I have to consider if this bugs me enough to go through all the hassle of shipping the monster back within my first 30 days.

Thanks for any advice!

Love it!

I get a big kick out of creating something (somewhat) new out of a device to fit a different need. Outside the box is the place to be!

When cruising Home Depot for ideas of how to do something, I've learned NOT to ask the help to think outside the box. (cue deer in headlight look ;o)

But actually the local Ace Hardware guys are very in tuned with alternative uses of products. But then they know stuff.

netringer; I have discovered, if you let the channel scan complete a full round of analog seraching, waiting for it to come around full circle and start scanning for digital channels, you can stop the scan by hitting the Pwr. button, then power it back up again (while the lamp is still on) you can go ahead and manually enter your 'in the clear' digital channels.

That solves two problems.
First, you don't have to wait 10-15 minutes for it to scan all the digital channels and second, you won't have to spend another 30 minutes deleting all of the 'encrypted' channels which also includes 45+ so called 'music' channels.

I was having a HUGE problem with the set 'crashing' due to using the TVGOS on a CATV system that uses SDV. Due to the system constantly adding channels, the TV apparently gets overloaded with all of the sub channels and deletions, then the set just crashes deleting all of the digital channels and wiping out the TVGOS listings effectively forcing you to do a rescan and starting from scratch with TVGOS.

By not letting the system scan any of the digital channels, for whatever reason, no new QAM channels are added down the road.

Why your set crashes on ch. 82 is probably due tho the operators lousy PSIP data on that channel. I have read similar issues with other members having weird problems of their sets turning off for no reason on a certain channel.

Blame the FCC with their damn confusing 'virtual' channel nonsense. If it's 93.1, then it's 93.1, not 2.1 just because the local station use to be on analog channel 2. If consumers can get use to just about everything else, they can get use to a simple number change.

Haha. I showed my wife and she thought it was retarded... Dont care though. I LIKE IT and it works. My buddys all got a kick out of it too.

Thanks for the info on it. Ill put up a pic when I think about it.
post #9190 of 9409
Well, I tried searching but didn't see anything solid. Has anyone come up with anyway of adjusting the overscan even if it is kind of hackish/ modding the hardware?

I'm asking because I've been noticing more and more channels on cable and even some broadcast networks seem to be ignoring the HD content safe areas and when this happens some of the text gets trimmed out due to overscan. Guess the folks monitoring these stations have all switched to flat panels. I've also noticed it with 1 or 2 games. Really quite annoying.

Any help, thoughts, ideas, hacks, mods, etc, greatly appreciated.

Currently have the WD-73831 if it makes a difference.

Thanks, Bruce!

I tried one more time after I posted the above, and it didn't even remember the "Cable" option after the crash.

YOUR METHOD WORKED! I hit cancel before it got to scanning digital channel 82. I still PO'd that I can't get any digital channel above 82, which it looks like meanxs I have NO HD channels! Maybe I can still tune those manually.

I figured that TV was choking on some data it couldn't grok, but shouldn't we expect that Mitsubishi would have a firmware update to fix this? I'm going to call for a fix.

I say we demand the source code under the GPL, have one the more savvy hacker/owners patch it, and embarrass Mitsubishi into fixing it.

But actually the local Ace Hardware guys are very in tuned with alternative uses of products. But then they know stuff.

Last night was an exception for me. I went to my local Ace about 20 minutes before closing with a specific list of what I needed and the one thumb screw from the recessed ceiling fixture over my kitchen sink (I dropped the screw years ago and of course it went down the drain.) I also wanted some brown Mystic(TM) tape to cover up the worn parts of my leather easy chair.

I had been impressed and amused at the obscure, yet vital and handy stuff they have in the vendor-supplied hardware bins.

I made about 6 round trips of that area. No likely thumbscrew. I went to the tape/adhesives aisles. No Mystic tape. I KNOW I bought some at another Ace just a year ago.


Of course as opposed to my last visit just days ago where I was asked if i need help about 6 times as I reached for what I was looking for, this time I was my own. Did I mention it was near closing time? I knew I'd find teh whole crew waiting to run and sure enough as I glared at the pack of 6 standing by the front door, the whatever-manager asked if I needed help finding something. Yeah. This screw and brown Mystic tape.

1) He was sure they didn't have the screw. I protested that it might in the electric department (as they have stuff like pull chains. I did look and didn't spot that area either.) It's probably just a 6-32 bolt. "It may be common but we don't have it.

2) Talk about deer in the headlights look. They had never heard of Mystik tape. I described it as being like duct tape but more cloth and comes in a bunch of colors. We have plastic tape and duct tape. Nope.

In the end one of the kids took pity on me and found a likely screw. 25 cents each. When I tried it it didn't fit.

I'm going to do more buying online. How could it possibly be any worse?

I really hate those types of stores now. I think now that the economy has tanked, the more knowledgeable, better paid employees have been let go for the cheaper. ignorant kind.

I bought a Makita Drill from Home Depot a while ago. It was around $300. It was the nice lithium Ion type, 18v, quick charge, etc. I used it probably 10 times for small projects and then the batteries wouldn't charge. I took it in there and the manager told me I had used the batteries too much and they needed to be replaced. I tried explaining that I had already called the manufacturer and they said it was probably a bad batch and that I had barely used the drill. Beyond that what are the chances that both go bad at the same time. He took them to his "testing machine", which I COULD NOT follow him to. When he came back he said they were bad and I needed to buy new ones.

Ended up sending them to Makita who replaced them for free and said they were defective and apologized.

People just dont care. I bet if you had went in there at 9AM, someone would have helped you more. Next time I need something, I am going to find a local small hardware store and give them my support. If all thats left in this world is Home Depots, Lowes, and Ace, we are all screwed.
post #9194 of 9409
netringer; When you canceled the scan, was it on the 1st round looking for analog channels? If so, that might be the problem. It apparently needs to complete the analog scan up to ch. 135 (the highest CATV channel). When you see it pick up at the highest analog channel (in my case ch. 72), then stop the digital scan.

I'm surprised they even bother with a update for TVGOS. Don't bother, the set to too old.

Hey VideoBruce-

You seem very knowledgeable on this TV, so maybe you can answer this question for me.

I have a WD-65735 and a BDP-1500 Blu-ray player. I am interested in trying to display the player using its 24fps feature as thats how most films are meant to be shown.

I know that this function does not really work with a 60hz rate and forces a 3:2 pull-down.

Last CEDIA I talked to one of the employees at the Mitsubishi booth and he explained to me that all 3-D ready TVs actually display in 120hz, it just wasn't advertised as such.

Have you heard anything regarding this or have any experience with the 24fps settings on this model?

I'd answer, but you should wait for the "expert" here to reply. I'm just an owner.

michanecash; I can't really help you since I don't have a Blu-ray player and I never heard of anything regarding 3D and 120Hz since I don't follow most of those 'latest and greatest' marketing ploys.

Regarding overscan, other than position, there are no service menu tweaks. While some Flat Panels have different overscan settings (Samsungs' "Just Scan" for example), I can't say I have ever saw that in a DLP.

I read that Mits was going to supply an adapter so that it's 3d ready displays could display 3D Blu-Ray content per the new standards. Of course, that adapter will be an additional purchase.

I have a question regarding my old WD-65831 - the lamp burned out recently - 2nd time for this set - and soI ordered a replacement... except, this time I only received the bulb, and not a replacement housing... Unfortunately, as I was disassembling the housing to drop the new lamp in place, I neglected to mark which of the wires go to the correct location on the bulb.
Does anyone recall, or is this an AC bulb where it won't matter? I don't really want to plug it in and see; the bulbs are a bit more $$$ than I would consider expendable if it blows on reversed voltage, and I'd prefer not to risk damage to the TVs internals either.

Also, as I disassembled the lamp housing, I found a likely reason for the bulb's failure (as well as the distraction that led me to forget to mark the wires)... one of the wires to the bulb had overheated so much that its insulation had melted off, and the others' outer layer of insulation is cracked and split as well. Even the base of the old bulb cylinder (inside the lamp housing) is melted down into a cloudy over-sized sphere, instead of the normal cylinder-and-sphere clear glass of the new unit.
Should I be concerned? If the TV overvolted the lamp, it may be a fire hazard. However, it is also possible that the bulb failed (it had been getting dimmer for some time; I knew this was coming) and drew too much power, causing the overheat. I am not familiar with how this happens, but don't want unnecessary risk.

Thanks!

Other than LEDs' and DC CLFs' (which I wasn't aware of), I don't know of any type of device that produces 'light' that is polarity sensitive.

Thanks! Works great! I work with LEDs quite a bit as a hobby, can you tell?
Add me to the list of people that are experiencing "white blooming" i.e. pronounced halos around white on dark backgrounds; especially bad in credits-type text. This wasn't an issue until just now, so it is likely the ash and dust from the burned wire insulation has collected on a lens that I was unable to clean properly; everything in the lamp housing was lightly coated so I'm sure it is everywhere in the TV now.

Ok, so there are no official methods for fixing overscan via software or hardware adjustments. Has anyone come up with anything on their own. I imagine it would most likely be some sort of hardware adjusting/hacking to the placement of the LE seating but haven't fully looked into it yet.

If anyone has already gone through the effort to minimize the overscan themselves I'd appreciate your experiences.

Thanks

I have read through about 134 pages and have not quite found exact answers to my questions.

My TV WD- 65732

1) I understand that the TV does not display 24fps, but that it accepts it and converts it to 60fps. Is there a disadvantage or advantage to having 24fps enabled on my PS3?

2) I assume the TV is 60hz, correct?

3) Is there a menu or a physical way for me to adjust the mirrors? Some of the picture is cut off at the bottom and crooked.


I think I had more questions but cannot think of them.

Thanks in advance.
post #9206 of 9409
I apologize if I'm bringing up questions that may have already been answered but there does not seem to be FAQ section of this thread and given that there are a billion replies ( I am exaggerating but my point is there a lot of them) it feels like finding an answer is searching for a needle in a hay stack. Also there seems to be a lot of TV tied to the series.

Here is my story:

It seems I got lucky with the tv Mitsu WD-57731 since I bought it as a display model from a CompUSA/Good Guys closing out back in 07. It was not until last week that the lamp died out on me, so for a good 3 years it lasted me even though it was a display model.

Here are my questions:

1. What is the latest firmware for the tv? Mine has Version FW: V33 008.00
If there is a new FW would I see any changes or added features?
I have not had any serious problems with the tv but I did once try connecting a Panasonic DV camcorder to the tv via fire wire but never got it to read it, I was unsure getting confused on if it was analog or digital. I guess I could always reset the tv settings and retry connecting it again?

2. When I watch movies that do not fit the aspect ratio of the tv and tv shows that are 4:3 I see like a small thin white glow of light at the edges. I only see this line when the aspect ratio of what I'm watching doesn't fit the entire tv. I guess this is called the "halo effect"? Is that correct? I should note though that with getting the new lamp this effect has some what been reduced but it is still there none the less.

3. Should I even consider cleaning the inside of the tv at all? I feel like I don't want to mess with the insides considering how long the first lamp lasted me which came with the tv and considering that it was a display tv. I know they have those on almost 24/7 at max capacity at the stores, so I guess I got lucky with how long it lasted me. Is vacuuming and OK think to do on the inside of the tv?

4. I was looking through some threads. I have my Samsung BD-UP 5000 connected through HDMI on the TV. Does the TV not register Dolby digital signal or DTS through the HDMI and sending out the signal through the coax to my receiver? I do know that with over the air antenna for HD TV, the coax does send out dolby digtial signal to my receiver.

Thanks for the help. Also even though I have had this TV since 07 I have stumbled upon this site within the past few weeks just recently. Wish I could have found it earlier but I guess better late than never right?

Oh one more thing unfortunately it seems the 57731 missed the boat on being 3D ready as I had called Mitsu inquiring about this. The series following this set started to be 3D ready.

You could find the answer the the hz in the manual of the TV just read it.

Reading through some of the threads there are special menus on the TV.
Use the following one for adjusting the display area:
Service Menu: Menu + 2457
You need to get Into the service menu, and move the HPOS over to center your screen.

Hey all I wasnt expecting a monstorous thread for these units here.

I'm shopping around to replace my old SD 53" RP Sony, obviously I want to stay in the same size range or larger with a new set.

I've been eyeing out the 65C9 65737 65837 I see that the C9 is a step below the 737 but some of the options are indeed there. The 837 might have a couple other features but not sure if they're important or not.

So I'm reaching out to the community for suggestions feedback etc..

My TV will be in my Basement, its cooler and darker down there, not too damp I have a dehumidifier. We're non-smokers the house is forced air heated. My current set has to be close to 10 years old 7 of those have been in this basement. The viewing distance should be optimal for a 65 the 73 just might be too big for down there. My source is DTV I have HD with them for my other set and I would upg for this set. I play 360 about equal time as watching TV and SD DVDs and Netflix through the 360 (HD) depending on the show. The set will get turned on and off quite a bit as we have kids and they're running in and out all the time.

Is this an ideal unit for my needs, I was thinking of getting a projector at one point should I stay that route or just get one of these sets? Any thing that I should watch for on these units such as models to stay away from etc..

2) I assume the TV is 60hz, correct?

Yes, as are all non CRT TV's except ones that higher refresh rates as a option.

3) Is there a menu or a physical way for me to adjust the mirrors? Some of the picture is cut off at the bottom and crooked.

That is done by physical adjustments to the chassis and within the SM. See my previous posts regarding my "What's Inside" thread;
