I believe one of the two DLP chips went (service mode was bright as can be). I was able to make a claim with the above just before their january 25 of this year deadline.

If it helps any, the Sony 940d is still available with same size and has better 3d (real, not checkerboard) and looks very natural for an LCD. Or the last of the 2016 OLEDs do great 3D also. You need to act quickly though...I am currently deciding between the 940d and the E6 myself--both have advantages and disadvantages. 3D is a MUST for me--if people had actually tried it on a big enough screen, it would still be popular (and included today)
I am a big 3D fan as well. I didn't accumulate 170+ 3d movies just because. Everyone who saw 3d on the Laservue was amazed.

I didn't know they had 2 DLP chips. I thought they only had one. I did not have issues with the set until the last week or so. I called my local dealer and they have 1 Sony 940d new in box.

I may find someone who will play with the electronics but other repair shops have also called it "unrepairable" since they can't get parts.

Nothing in this posting/signature really means anything in the long run.

Hey guys, I'm cleaning out my garage and came across the original Mitsubishi wall mount for my L65-A90. No idea if it fits other models but just want it gone and felt I should check here before it goes in the trash.

It's pretty heavy but I just want the shipping covered from Los Angeles.

Any Gurus out there still Monitor This Site?

My L75-A91 Has a wavy look to the TV guide lines.
Straight on the left side of the screen, then bows down slightly
and the up in the middle of the screen, then back down and up on the far right side.
Long banners on the screen have a wave to them too.
It is not severe and I can live with it.

Is it a calibration issue?
Something Get jarred in a move?
Anyone in Minnesota Work on these sets?

Help Please.

If it is a steady distortion (that is doesn't move around), you will probably need to calibrate the geometry.
It's been a long time, but somewhere on this thread there should be a remote control code that will give you access to service settings.

The line does not move at all. It is just a little less than straight across the screen.

Same with banners like the CNBC stock banner. The Banner At The bottom appears to rollercoaster

identical places across the screen.

It can be done from the remote control?

Yes I think it is a simple geometry fix.

-----

Found this online. Is this the problem? Tv picture is great just not long straight lines.

"This is a stunning tv, But after awhile if you look closely wavy lines will appear. The lines are almost always horizontal. Every large DLP designed tv has the possibility of doing this. There is a very thin plastic lining on back side of the glass and after awhile it tends to separate.You will only notice this if you are able to visulize horizontal lines on your tv. Mitsubishi will tell you it is not covered and that it was caused by you not placing the tv on a level base. possibly moving the tv or you caused it in transport. This is a problem that occurs with large DLP tvs but very common on the large Laservue tvs. So if you want to chance it because it does have an unbelievable picture DO NOT BUY IT WITH OUT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY. So beware"

IIRC there was a copy of the service manual floating around online, but I can't recall where.
This post may be enough for you though: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/63-re...l#post23232937

Yes, Thank you. I found that last night.

I wish to try the manual geometry alignment.

The service code is listed as 2 4 5 7 to be entered into the remote.

I Have the L75-A91 and That code does not work.

Am I doing something wrong in code entry?

Any Other code number?

Simply entering that code on my remote does not work unless I am doing it wrong.

Help please.

Did you press the enter button immediately after entering the code?

HELP!! Can Anyone Answer the Questions In Red?

Manual Geometry Alignment
1. Activate the Service Mode (First Press The Menu Button) Then the following number sequence
<2-4-5-7>. From the Service Menu, press the <0> button. The Data Transfer
& Geometry Menu will appear.
2. Use the buttons to select “MANUAL GEOMETRY ALIGNMENT” and press .
3. The Manual Keystone Geometry Alignment Pattern will appear. See below.
Note: To remove all geometry correction, while the Geometry Alignment Pattern is displayed, press <1> then
. This will null all correction data. Re-enter the Manual Geometry Alignment mode by repeating
How Do I Press 1, Simply pressing 1 does nothing. Exact Sequence please.
step 2.
Note: To restore the original factory correction data, select “RESTORE GEOMETRY DATA FROM BACKUP” and
press . Press what button?

Phase 1 - 16 Point Geometry Alignment
1. 16 Adjustment Points are indicated by white dots around the edge of the raster. The adjustment position is
indicated by a + cursor.
2. Starting from the upper left corner, use the buttons to align the + at each point in a straight line,
flush with the bezel as a reference. See example above.
Note: Only the cursor will move. The Geometry Pattern will not change.
3. After adjusting each point, use the button to shift the cursor to the next point clockwise and repeat until
all 16 points have been adjusted.
4. After all 16 points are adjusted and the cursor is returned to the original starting point, press .Press What??
Press What button
Correction will be automatically calculated and saved and the Manual Geometry Alignment will be terminated. Can't get this to happen. Exact Steps please.
5. Press to re-activate the Manual Geometry Alignment. The geometry pattern will appear with the
corrections applied.

Phase 2 - Geometry Touch-up Alignment
1. If additional correction is necessary after performing the Manual Geometry Alignment, re-enter the Manual
Geometry Alignment mode.
2. Use the left right button to shift the cursor to the point needing correction.
3. Use the center toggle to indicate the direction and amount of correction necessary at the particular
point. Note: Only the cursor will move. The Geometry Pattern will not change.
4. Press the button to apply the correction. The Geometry Pattern will now show the correction.
Press WHAT button. HELP What Button??
5. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 as needed.
6. Press to save your changes. The Manual Geometry Alignment will be terminated.
Press what what button to save my changes?
7. Press to exit the alignment mode. Or, to proceed to Phase 3, re-enter the Geometry Alignment
mode

Could someone please fill in the details here.
Many of us have never done this and don't use the remote provided with the tv very often.

On My Geometry screen the lines do have bends or waves as do the side yellow and green line.

Let me thank someone in advance.

See my Post above.

Never done this before and need details.

I understand getting all 16 points and can do that but don't understand how to save and don't know how to override the correction by pressing 1.

Hopefully a guru will further Detail the steps and and perhaps detail other things that can be done in the service Mode.

Anyone Know How To Do The Manual Geometry in The Service Mode?
Someone must have done this.
I know how to do the 16 points on the screen but how do I make it "take".
If I buy a service manual does it have explicit directions?
Does Mitsubishi take Phone calls anymore?
This Picture Totally Blows my Mind.
OLED is incredible detail but my Laservue picture is simply amazing.
So Natural!! I do NOT want to change tv's
I can live with the slight wave in the guide menu or long straight lines.
Having a manual geometry set in the menu means adjustments are possible.
Service manual have explicit instructions?

PM Sir Mark https://www.avsforum.com/forum/63-re...l#post23232937

I'm pretty sure the button you press is ENTER. I believe once you adjust 16 points you have to advance to the next point and hit ENTER for changes to take effect.

Thank you.

Hopefully he responds with explicit steps on exact way to turn off factory geometry so I can do manual settings,

and exact steps to make the changes "take" once the 16 points are set. That part is easy.
