Mitsubishi WD-60735 Shutting Off Every 20-30 Minutes

by zigmondsrh / January 15, 2009 11:16 AM PST

I purchased Mits WD-60735 on 12/26/2008. After about two weeks, the TV suddently shut off by itself and the lamp light came on and was red. According to the manual, I need a new lamp. After two weeks? Really? Had a tech come out today who was confident that replacing the bulb would fix it. After 10 minutes, the set shut off again and the lamp light came up red. Luckily, the tech saw the whole thing. He stated that the fans appeared to all be working. His theory is that something in the power supply is triggering the TV to shut off. If that is the case, why does the lamp light come on red? In any event, they are coming tomorrow to pick up the set and take it to the shop for repair. According to the back of the TV, the set was assembled in December 2008. I have read all the information regarding the many problems with the previous Mits tvs. There seems to be very little about the WD-60735. I have seen some data about the color wheel on the WD-60735. Has anyone seen this before? Is anyone having the same problem I am? If so, did you get your set fixed? If so, how?

What was not funny was the 50 BAD CAPS to be replaced. Google BAD CAPS for story and pictures about this plague.

Mitsubishi WD-60735 shutting down

Don't know if this applys to you but if you have purchased anything but Osram or Philips replacement lamp for your DLP tv then this is probably your problem.. The generic is VERY tempting in this recession but in this case generic is poison to your dlp tv... i have a Mitsubishi 60735 and went thru 2 generic bulbs when my tv kept shutting down on it's own and the lights on front would flash, i could cut it back on for 10 minutes then flicker and shut down again ..well since the bulb was new i thought it may be defective so i got is exchanged for another one ... after all of the post i have seen how much repairs were going to cost on dlp sets no matter what the problem was ..i was ready to chunk the tv out the door when the second lamp was doing the same thing.....!! well a last ditch effort to save my tv before i trashed it or taking it apart to dissect it.. was to buy a brandname lamp ... in my case i purchased a Philips cost twice as much =/ ..i could just return it if it didn't work.. well it was the generic lamps that was causing trouble.. the brandname worked perfectly .. i am just glad the generic lamp didn't do any damage to my TV!!! I have done further research on the generic lamps and realized that the damage it could have done was not worth the money i saved when i purchesed it... Generic is a great deal In some cases (household cleaners, etc..) but in this case GET THE NAME BRAND!!!! the only name brands i know of for these lamps are Philips or Osram/Sylvania.. hope this helps others from this headache. Do your research don't by generic lamp replacements, your DLP set cost to much to risk it.
