Anthony Rodriguez: Update: 12/22/13. The repair was a sucess and only took about 15
minutes.Also got some more info from the repairman. The chip was made by
Texas Instruments and there was a bad batch. Mitsubishi, so far, is the
only company to have worked out a deal for replacement. Apparently the chip
contains a lot of mirrors & the black and white dots from the mirrors
reflecting/not reflection light at the correct time. This chip was
installed in a variety of brands of dlp sets.
Bob Trach: Just replaced mine on a mit 73833. I thought it was a good idea to try to
turn on the tv without the back plastic cover. You need to install the back
cover for the tv to work.
Anthony Rodriguez: I called Mitsubishi customer service 3 days ago. There is a known issue
with the chip. My TV is just over 5 years old and the warranty just expired
a few months ago - Model WD-65735. Their solution was very fair. They
covered the cost of the chip if i agreed to pay $200. The customer rep,
while i was on hold, contacted a local repair shop for me. I was told to
wait up to two weeks to get a call from the shop. About a half hour after
calling i got a call from the repair shop. They will be out later today to
fix my TV. 800.332.2119. Just have you model and serial number handy.
Stajhe123: Thank you so much! Where is the capacitor in all this? I want to know what
to look for so I don't electrocute myself haha
Xoeclyus: are you not supposed to put thermal glue on the heatsink?
Puppetlo: I was just wondering. When you said white dots, were they flickering and
disapearing and reappearing again on the same spot??? Cuz my moms TV is
doing that but sometimes the dot is there and then it flickers and
disappears and then it comes back again on the same spot.
Anthony D. Saba Jr.: Is it the same proceedure for the WD-65737 model? What part number would I
use? I have about 50 white dots now.
Scott Figgins: I'm looking for the chip for a wd -65733 part no .938P075020 at a
reseaonable price ,any suggestions?
MrFleetline49: dude where did you buy the chip I have the same tv in your video and how
much was is thanx
HDTVEXP77: You are welcome, I am glad to hear that...
Jody Glass: great video just replace mine for 150 bucks, dots were so bad u could
hardly see the left side of screen, now its like a brand new tv! thx for
the video you rock
nick samuel: Soo if I do the steps one by one will it get rid of the block dots n the
jrl0958: I have never worked on a TV in my life and I replaced the DLP chip this
week and all the dots disappeared. Took me about 1 hour because I took my
HDTVEXP77: you have to replace dmd chip
d johnson: Completed in 30 minutes!!!! Thanks
ChrisZennNYC: THANKS for sharing! Where do I get the chip from? Mitsubishi DLP 73"
bkfeva72: If I follow your instructions on the instillation, do I have to put some
thermo paste or anything else to prevent the Television from burning out?
Laugh 'N Leap: Hey SupaDave....it's the Chip! Dust is a non-factor. The white dots will
worsen with time. You can buy the DLP Chip now or later, but the white dots
will be there until you replace it.
HDTVEXP77: Its very similar almost the same.
Kaiser Jose: I have 73737 are these DLP's similar?
Stajhe123: To follow up... Mitsubishi replaced the part for free; and, with the help
of this video, I was able to replace the chip all by myself!!
tdj7777: any thoughts would be awesome and thank you in advance
brandon david: So...you HAD the parts FREE from Mitsubishi because of the known problem?
AND then you decided to pay somebody $200.00 to unscrew some screws and put
the part in? LMAO....video of how to do is right here...you're watching it.
tdj7777: All wires reconnected, screws tight, and chip locked. I see that there is a
connection on the green circuit board that is empty of a connecting wire.
it is top left and second connection to the right, no connection present
when case opened. small flat white wire connects to top, right, rear of
green circuit board and has small blue line on wire at connection, replaced
with blue to bottom and numbers on cable on top as I remember it when case
opened. Have used reset button on front to no avail.
nick samuel: Will I be able to do it myself like it is showed in the video ?? I have a
60-67" inch mitsubishi tv hd
HDTVEXP77: You are welcome.
Hilario Penaloza: I have a 1910-6103w. can that be swapped with a 1910-6145 chip?
murilloesteban: is this prose the same for mitsubishi wd 73733 model
gshockresistant: Make sure you put the back cover on before turning on or else the tv won't
power on and you will think that you broke the tv while installing the DMD
chip. There is a safety switch that prevents the tv from turning on without
the back cover on.
turtlehome4sluts: i have a mitsubishi tv wd 57733 what is the serial # for the chip i need to
buy i have alot of different ones but which one is need ed to replace dmd
jkimop: Informative, but sloppy. It didn't seem necessary to tear the light engine
apart like that, pulling off the hood and pulling ANY the wires. It looked
like the replacement could be done just by removing the back cover, the
heat sink and flipping circuit board for the swap. We'll see if I'm full of
crap after I do this procedure.
berzerk0912: Why didn't he use a thermal paste on that DMD chip before he put the
heatsink back on? That chip is going to have a short life span like the one
CalibanVOV: Problem solved! you HAVE to put the back panel on because it pushes a blue
lever under the lamp. This worked like a charm!
cjward1234: i saved 700 bux replacing my dlp chip myself thanx dude
gerniee3: Looks extremely intimidating...but I do think I'm gonna try it, unless
perhaps there is a company that comes to your home to fix? I know music
production, I don't know the inside of televisions...
Daniel Carroll: I completed this task on my 73" Mitsu DLP and now the lamp light is
flashing at me. I help down two buttons and it flashes 32, so I believe
that the lamp cover is showing as not on properly. I've taken it apart
three times and put it back together and it seems fine to me. Any idea what
I may have done wrong?
Xoeclyus: h t t p s
original chip pulled from Mitsubishi WD-73733; not trying to argue, just
putting the information out there. i've never heard of not using thermal
glue on any cpu-heatsink. btw local tv shop estimate was 1000 bucks. wish i
could make 800+/hr, seems like a trade i could get into lol.(175 for chip,
thermal paste, & can of air duster)
HDTVEXP77: You are welcome.
nathan dunn: hi i have a 60inch mitsubishi dlp and and no if its bugs or what but its
got little black spots in it i just got it from a friend
Laugh 'N Leap: I was skeptical that this process would fix the "white dot disease" on my
57" Mitsubishi DLP. I took a gamble and purchased the chip from ShopJimmy
for $189.00. Installing the new chip wasn't hard at all, but I still had
doubts. After putting everything back in place, I closed my eyes and turned
the TV on with the newly installed DLP Chip........and the WHITE DOTS were
gone! My wife was amazed! Total time for the complete process was 1.5hrs.
Much Thanks to the producer of this video!
E . Conrad Miller: im geting status a red light i even change the lamp what to do next
TheMafarcofos: Would a tv repair shop know how to do this? Or am i better off doing it my
Steve Lawhead: Thanks for the video, one hour start to finish and the TV is as good as new!
gmarv: Followed your video and replaced the dmd chip in my wd-57733 and no more
spots, good as new ,best $159 bucks i ever spent Thanks bro!
Kevin Daniel: Or just call Mitsubishi, they pay for the parts as it is known problem.. I
paid $200 for a professional to do it with a warranty.
tommy salinas: Were do I get the chip at
HDTVEXP77: Thank you.. Dont forget to subscribe to get the latest tv repair news.
Xoeclyus: then why did my original have thermal glue on it from the manufacturer?
Rocquelle: so you will need to replace the chip and the lamp
