I use a X-Rite i1Display Pro (ID3 around these parts) colorimeter, last year they went on sale often for about $150 (normally $225-250). Learning HCFR (mentioned in Augerhandle's post) and how to interpret the graphs has a bit of a learning curve but once everything "clicks" it's not too bad. The problem with the Mits sets is like I said the color isn't linear. In other displays like LCD when you calibrate to the 75% or 100% Saturation color patterns the 50%, 25%, and 0% generally correctly fall in line. In a nutshell with the Mits if for example you calibrate to the 100% Saturation patterns then 75% is wrong, 50% is close to correct, 25% is wrong, etc. The built in CMS (color management system) can't correct this, only an external 3DLUT can. The blue on the Mits are wrong too and if you get a meter the CMS controls for it barely change it and 3DLUT's can't entirely correct for it either but much better than the built in CMS.

If you don't want to buy a meter download the AVS HD 709 disc or mp4's (This is also useful if you have a meter as it has patterns for it too):
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-di...libration.html
Read the manual first. But basically set your brightness and contrast to the black and white clipping patterns (just be careful not to set contrast too high to avoid eye fatigue). There's a pattern for sharpness. Then do the Flashing Color Bars pattern, gotta put the TV in blue only mode (in the advanced user defined mode) then set color and tint. It's not accurate but it's much better than the built in modes.

That's not calibration since there's no objective data for interpretation.

I calibrate about every 3 to 4 months with a few touch ups of the Contrast due to lamp aging. My family uses the TV a lot so I have to swap lamps about once a year.

Regarding non Mits lamps. My last lamp is from one of the discount lamp web sites (discounttvlamps, it was half the price of a genuine Mits lamp) and while this isn't exactly scientific in recording this anomaly but I noticed that without my 3DLUT color correction 100% Red saturation pattern the red appears red-orange and I can't even get it remotely close to what 100% Red is supposed to be with the built in CMS, only with 3DLUT correction have I been able to get it back to pure red. I do not recall my genuine Mits lamps doing this. Maybe my DLP is getting old and something is wrong with it, maybe it's the lamp, I don't know but next lamp will be genuine Mits.

Maybe not but that's all the calibration I'm ever going to do 'cause I don't have the patience for any more.

That's why I lik ethe auto calibration feature of my video processor. Although I still need to a decent manual calibration since my video processor doesn't process 3D. but once that is done the calibration software works with the DUO video processor and colorimeter to auto calibrate. But even then I'm too lazy to calibrate as oftenas I should.

Maybe I just missed it, but what is the brand of the OEM bulb for our Mits DLP's? Everyone had said how good the Phillips bulb from Discounttvlamps was, so I bought a couple for the future. Then again, I still have less than 700 hours on my TV, so my original bulb may last a while yet. I just checked the settings with Disney WOW and nothing changed with regards to brightness and contrast or any of the color or tint settings. What would the actual repercussions be if the Phillips bulb is not quite up to par compared to the OEM bulb besides a slightly dimmer picture, that may be able to be tweaked back up using something like the Disney WOW disc (or the energy level in the settings)?

Using other people's settings doesn't work like that. Due to differences in tolerances in all the parts that make up the TV means they have to individually calibrated. Use the method I mentioned with the AVS 709 disc if you don't want to go the meter route.

The whole calibration business on these sets is a bit of a nightmare. You need an external 3D color processor of some sort because the built in CMS is total POS. That is the only way go you can get the colors correct at the various saturation points. Even then it is tricky. I have both a eye 1 and a D3. I use the eye1 spectro to calibrate the D3. With a Lumagen Radiance or other 3D Color processing you can get the color right at 25, 50, 75 percent calibration but that calibration is for a specific amount of light in the room. I do a complete dark room calibration. That same calibration is undersaturated across the board with light on in the room. So you almost need 3 full calibrations. One for day, one for night, and one for normal evening lighting if you are watching at night with lights on in the room. All this is really too much. I just have one calibration for full dark room and live with the desaturated color in other lighting conditions.


What I have found at least on my 92840 is that the color differences between a Mitsubishi OEM Lamp with 300 hours and 1500 hours is not significant enough to to worry about. Even with Autocalc using the Lumagen and ChromaPure the whole process is just too much trouble to do all the time. I have been running the current Night/Dark Room calibration for 3 lamps now. I usually change lamps about once a year. There is no comparison between one of these sets running a proper 3D calibration and what you can do with CMS.


The only thing I can figure about the Mits CMS was they tried for some theoretical average lighting and they just were unwilling to invest in fixing the CMS. Average room lighting doesn't exist. The other weird thing is that the Natural setting or whatever they call it has such a compressed Gamut that nothing you do with it gives you a full Rec 709 color space. Starting with the oversatured Bright Mode and a Lumagen or other 3D color system you can get very accurate color across saturation points.


I have a DVDO Duo VP, on an older Pansonic Plasma, it only adjust 6 colors and won't solve the Mitsubishi color tracking problems. Ideally, you would need one of the higher end Lumagens where you could set thousands of color points. All this seems kind of silly now to go that far as even the 2012 sets are getting pretty long in tooth. I was kind of crazy back in 2011 to spend 4 thousand on the TV and 2 thousand on the at the time, midrange, Lumagen XS. It has served me well but even with good tools it is too much trouble to really have proper color under different lighting conditions and maintain all that through aging and replacement lamps.


But considering I paid $4K for my 2011 92840 I will hang with it until there is a viable alternative. A Samsung 88" JS9500 would be nice but at $20k they must be kidding. I could almost build a dedicated theater room and 4K projector for that price.

^This.


I found that if I calibrate near the middle of the first lamp's life, there is really no need to re-calibrate at all. When the lamp is replaced, the wow factor outweighs the slightly off calibration, which improves steadily until the lamp's mid-life, and by the time the picture is off again enough to notice, it is time to change the lamp again anyway.

Clear Contrasted versus Hybrid

Can anyone on this thread opine as to the differences between the WD82840 and WD82842? The latter has the so-called "hybrid" screen, whereas the earlier model as the Clear Contrast. Has anyone actually seen the differences between them?

By the way, it's easy to edit one's post, but I'm stuck with Clear Contrasted as the post title forever.

I have an 82840 as well as a 92842 and I can't tell much of a difference but I haven't seen them side-to-side.

Thanks for the response. Both models that you have utilize the Clear Contrast screen. What I 'm trying to find out is about the characteristics of the hybrid screen used in all the 842 models except for the 92842.

Is your 92 inch set bright?

Sorry, I should have said the 82740. I didn't get the Diamond series on the 82. My 92" set is not as bright as the 82" but that's to be expected when you're using the same wattage bulb on a larger size. Also, it's not as bright as when I first purchased because it's on the original bulb and it's been almost 3 years.

I own a 2009 82837 and a 2011 92840. The 92840 has the clear screen and it is brighter than my 82". They removed the dynamic iris from the clear screen sets and they made more light. What they lost in contrast from no iris they gained back because of the clear screen. My impression is the clear screen creates a sharper image but could be a reflection problem in some rooms. The clear screen 82" should be nice and bright

I'm sure the CC screen 82" is brighter than the previous generation, but have you seen the hybrid screen 82? It's easier to find 82842s than 82840s in my area.

Sorry, I have not seen the 82842. Actually, I have never seen a 2012 at all. I have seen 2008, 2009 and 2011 examples. For critical viewing IMO you really need a Lumagen unless Mits worked a miracle on the2012. My 2011 92840 is drastically improved with a Lumagen XS when autocalibrated via Chromapure.

Cypress, CA?

After you added the Lumagen to your 92840, do you still feel it is light challenged?

To me, brightness (not at the expense of contrast or blacks) is vital.

I'm really retro, with my Mits WS 65813. I'm nervous about cleaning the optics, as people have many different opinions as to what materials and procedures to use. And I'm not big on disassembling things.

But the set is bright and colorful, and after putting a piece of wood under the back to slightly tilt it forward, bringing the vertical center in line with our couch position, the brightness and contrast really improved.

But no 3D, and 65 inches, though nice, isn't big enough for us.

Funny that no one on the forum has seen the 42 hybrid screen, to compare with the Clear Contrast.

I'm sure there's people who have. Consider that those people probably haven't checked this thread recently. Patience...

So my....

So my WD-73C12 television still randomly stops (or fails to start) with error code "61" even after the main board and light engine have been replaced under warranty. When the TV does start the image is very dim at first, but brightens after a couple minutes ... even though I replaced the bulb several weeks ago.

I can get parts on flea-bay, so I'm wondering if my problem could be a weak power supply that feeds the lamp.

Thoughts??

Did this start before or after you replaced the lamp?

Long before. This is what started me down the dark path of "warranty work" which took months to complete. The same thing is happening again but now the warranty is long gone.

Now the TV won't come on at all. When i plug it in, the LED either stays flashing green way too long (stuck in boot up), or when i can turn it on, it goes into fault code 61 again. Leaving the TV unplugged for a while used to help, but no longer.

I just ordered a new power supply. It's a shot in the dark, but it's one of the few original parts remaining. Its also the least expensive part.

Moved my trusty old 46" Samsung DLP to my living room yesterday after my 73" Mitsubishi went belly-up for the 2nd time in it's 3-year life. Now that it's out of warranty I'm not sure I can repair it.

My Samsung has been repaired twice...once under warranty and once by me, but even after 9 years it still has a clear and bright picture with eye-popping color! This is why I love DLP technology! The image on the Mitsubishi was never this good though. Too large a screen I suppose for a single bulb to illuminate.

My 2009 82837 is the one that was most light challenged. It also would not hold calibration very closely. The reason for the Lumagen Video Processor is to be able to set more than 6 color points. That is all the built in Color Management can adjust. The built in CMS is an epic fail. Even a DVDO Duo VP is not an answer because it is just a six color point. The way I calibrate my 92840 is to start with the TV in the Bright Mode Preset at its defaults. This mode is oversaturated which is a good starting point as external VP can not increase saturation it can only pull saturation. The Lumagen uses a color Look up table and interpolates the positions in between. It fixes the color, not as well as a more advance Lumagen but you can't fix the factory non-linear color without a 3D color lookup system like the Lumagen. Later model Lumagens correct for thousand of color points which will give superior results but the majority of the improvement is achieved with just 125 color points. If the Mits CMS worked properly the built in 6 points could achieve reasonable results. On the Mits it just makes a mess.

I'm not sure anything can open it outside of it's original software. What is a UTV file used for?

After failing to repair my WD-73C12, it is time to give up. I swapped a couple parts that may have been the issue, but now I believe the problem resides with the main board again. I've gone through two of them in the past three years....I won't do a third.

Thank the Gods my 9 year old Samsung is still going strong! I plan to sell this TV online as a parts machine. Sad end for a set that's only 3 years old.

Bye Mitsubishi

Sorry to see you go. I too am now getting the itchy fingers to get a large UltraHD TV but prices are currently too high to get one at close to the same size as my 92842. Will see if prices come down in 2016?

I replaced my 73" machine with an LG 55LF6000. It has an amazing picture... better than the Mitsubishi ever did!

Not sure if my old set will sell, so I am willing to part it out. If anyone needs parts let me know.

Power supply board

I just ordered a new power supply. It's a shot in the dark, but it's one of the few original parts remaining. Its also the least expensive part.
Where did you order from?
Does anyone know if a 92840 power supply board will work in a 92842. The part numbers are 934C409003 for the 840 and 934C409006 for the 842 but the boards look identical.
