Jumping in here; I've a 65" also and I find 23" to be too high, much less the 26" in the stand you linked to IN POST #9834. We replaced a 2003 Mitsu 52" with the 837, and really liked the look of the old stand. Thought it would be OK. Had to make it so.

The DLP is very sensitive to vertical offset. We noticed immediately the viewing difference. I needed to tip the back of the TV forward @1/2" to get an improved PQ at 10ft viewing distance. Yes, I did secure top of DLP to the wall behind it. PITA when I have to get behind the equipment shelves!!

Good luck.

I have a 65737 that has been great and never a problem- tonight it shut off on its own and will not turn on past the blue welcome screen with green LED flashing and shuts back down.

When I run the code error test I get a 12 which means no error.
I have done the reset with the power button and the AV reset.
I have tried using different forms of input.
Pulled bulb and made sure everything was still clean in the vent areas.

I have found several other post on this same issue but have not found a response that looks like it was solved.

I will contact Mits on Monday, but looking for anyone who has solved this on theirs....
any help is appreciated

You probably need a main board, very easy to replace. I just replaced mine on my 73737. Is it still under warranty? Mine was stuck on the welcome screen but wouldn't shut-off. Had to unplug or hold the power button. Flashing green light and error code 12,

just found another post where Mits sent a software update to fix - I went to the Mits websit and dowloaded to a flash drive and followed directions. The first try it did the same thing and shut down at the welcome screen. I tried a second time and the software installed and booted the tv back to normal.

In fact the picture seems to look better - probably reset all my previous settings

Do you have a URL to the firmware/software upgrade site?

I had thought mitsubishi was pretty tight with firmware upgrades. Have been hoping for an update to fix a couple of wonky things going on with my 82837. By chance went to the website and found a new update available.

Go to mitsubishi tv site, click on support (upper right) then on software upgrades. A popup menu will come up asking for the model and serial number. download the file. My tv is at 11.01 and the new one is 11.03

You're lucky if the update even temporarily fixes it, usually it doesn't work at all. As it didn't with mine. Of course that was the 11.0.2 update just last week and the 11.0.3 update is new and this is the first time they posted one on the website.

Don't be surprised if the issue comes back.

I have a WD82837 (11 days out of warranty) that has started suddenly going dim. The dimming (loss of brightness) does not last but switches in and out. has anyone heard of this? Could it be the DeepField Imager, color board or bulb? Any help would be appreciated before I pay $100.00 for someone to come out and change a setting.

Did you try turning Deepfield Imager off and see if that makes it go away? Other than that you could buy a bulb and change it yourself... if it fixes it, obviously you're good to go, if not... at least you have a spare bulb ready for when it does blow.

they have software download on their website now. http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/support.html
Its the small text that says Software Updates.

enter your correct model and download the software and instructions.

basically, extract the files to a usb drive.
insert usb to tv
unplug ac cord, replug ac cord
press power button and wait for like 5min for it to finish.

i think it will fix your problem.

there's no need for main-pwb replacement.
they have new software that fixes the problem.

in fact, everyone should install the new software to prevent future failures.

What you fail to realize is that the 11.0.3 update was just released within the last week. The 11.0.2 didn't fix the issue, the only fix was to replace the board, which I did.

If in fact the 11.0.3 does fix the issue, I'm pissed cause it was out of pocket, about a week after the warranty expired.

Sucks for you colour. I just did the 11.3 update this morning I'm having no problems with my 60737 just trying to stay ahead of them. I'm glad to see Mits getting with the program and making the updates available via download instead of having to go through layers of talking heads like I did to get 11.1. Now Mits how about making some 3D updates available to us 09 owners.

Yes it does suck for me and others that had the same issue. That is if in fact the 11.0.3 was made to fix the welcome screen issue. I still have my old board.....might consider reinstalling and updating it just for curiosity.

Ya they made a big issue sending me the 11.0.2 update, at least they emailed it and didn't have to go through USPS.

Even if my 73737 was still under warranty I wouldn't have waited for repair. I had the part shipped next day, had the TV put back together and back on my stand in less than 20 minutes.

Anyone done this on an 837 yet? Any functionality changes, or is it just bugfixes?

Having already invested in two 3Da1's I can live without an actual 3-D upgrade (which seems extremely unlikely at this point anyway), but I'd sell my first-born for a discrete code to toggle 3D mode, which surely wouldn't be an emormous task to implement.

I did the update on my 82837 went from 01 to 03. There are no obvious fixes that I can tell. I have only had a few times that the tv would not turn on with the green light flashing. I am still messing with my setup trying to get my blu-ray to see the adapter through my brand new 3D ready receiver. Might try one of those Gefen spoofer devices inbetween the adapter and my receiver programed with the EDID of a new Samsung 3D tv. Not sure if the Gefen will pass the frame packing 3D to the tv though. Believe it is 1.3 spec. (not enough bandwidth)

Anyone's guess, don't know what Mits problem is. I'm surprised they even put it up on the site.

I probably won't update my WD-65837 unless it's something worth while!

Here is the 11.03 firmware direct download link for the 73C9 http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/files/s...V41C_11_03.zip

Software Update Instructions for Model WD-73C9
This software update procedure consists of three (3) steps:
A. Re-Formatting the USB Mass Storage device.
B. Downloading and Extracting the Software Update file.
C. Installing the Software Update.
Quick Instructions (text only) are shown below, Detailed Instructions are shown on the following pages.
************************************************************ *****************************
Quick Instructions
A. Reformat a USB Mass Storage Device (128MB minimum, FAT32)
(If you require assistance with this step, please click HERE.)
B. Download, then extract the software update file to the USB Mass Storage Device.
(If you require assistance with this step, please click HERE.)
C. Install the Software Update
1. Disconnect the TV power cord from the wall socket.
2. Insert the USB Mass Storage device into the USB slot labeled “Service Only” located on the side of the
TV.
3. Plug the TV power cord into the wall socket.
4. Press the POWER button. The status LED on the front of the TV will start to blink green. You may notice
that the TV is displaying a blue screen with the Mitsubishi logo during the update procedure. This is
normal. IMPORTANT NOTE: If after approximately 5 minutes, the green LED continues to blink and
the TV never comes on, unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait approximately 15 seconds, then
return to step 3.
5. When the update has finished installing, the status LED will stop blinking and will remain green, the TV
will automatically come on (to whatever channel or input was last being watched), and after a few
moments, a text message will appear on the screen stating that the software update is complete. Do NOT
turn the TV Off. (Very Important!)
6. While the TV is still on, remove the USB Mass Storage device from the TV, then disconnect the TV power
cord from the wall socket. Wait at least 1 minute before plugging the TV back in to the wall socket. The
TV is now ready for normal use.
