Joe the Archer,have you contacted the manufacturer?

As painful as it sounds, you may only have two options at this time: keep replacing the bulb, or buy a new TV.

TV Lamp
Posted by on
WEST ROXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS -- I own a Mitsubishi model WD-57731 DLP High Def TV for less than 2 years and have replaced a lamp for the third time.

This has resulted in a great expense. The sad factor is that I previously owned a Mitsubishi rear projection TV I had for several years and never had any problems.
This has caused great frustration. I had reached the point of purchasing another TV other than a Mitsubishi which is arriving today.

I have no intentions of ever purchasing a Mitsubishi again.

To avoid this problem in the future don't buy a DLP. The lamps are expensive to replace.

DLP isn't bad. It comes down to hours on the TV, vibrations, etc. I've had a RCA DLP for a few years and haven't had a problem. It has low hours and sits on concrete floor. All we do is watch a couple hours of TV on it...no video games!
lobo65 on 2008-11-18:
Precisely why they are phasing DLP sets out. They are expensive to own compared to LCD and Plasma. Not to mention the lost viewing time while awaiting a new bulb, or color wheel to arrive.

Chipping Paint After 3 Years?
Posted by on
I own an 2005 eclipse and like the car. However, the paint all over my car is peeling off. That's not normal. I approached Mitsubishi about it and they refused to do anything. I am extremely disappointed. It'll cost me a few thousand to fix, and I'll never buy a Mitsubishi again.

I'll also be sure to encourage my friends to do the same.

You failed to say where you are, and that has a lot of bearing on the problem.. I am originally from Indianapolis, and have seen the damage to car finishes from salt and other chemicals the city spread to combat snow and ice. I also lived in Arizona, and saw literally hundreds of cars, a lot of them GM products, with big patches of primer, where the paint had peeled off, In Arizona, plastic is biodegradqable. There are many places that have specific chemical or environmental problems that affect paint, but three years is not unimaginable, unless you wash your car daily and wax it every week. Paint protects metal, but it is not eternal.

Mitsubishi DLP is good for no more than 2 years
Posted by on
DALLAS, TEXAS -- I read the reviews of many of you and feel better now to know that I am not the only victim of Mitsubishi poor quality product and customer service... actual no customer service.

I bought a 52" DLP in 2004. Worked fine until 2006 then, after many miserable long waited phone conversations with some of the so called Mitsubishi service reps, I had to buy a bulb for about $300, and now 12-2-07 the bulb is burned again. I am not about to through hell again to get the bulb. I am done with Mitsubishi TV or auto or any other product with this name on it.

To show you why American products are better I bought a RCA 27 inch tv back in 1997 and it still works fine today.

Don't count on that wallyworld?

You know...Nipper. The little RCA dog? The terrier sitting in front of the antique phonograph with one ear cocked to show he recognizes the sound of "His Master's Voice"? Li cocks his own ear, clearly baffled.

Well, you wouldn't call him baffled now. He has, in fact, a special interest in old Nipper. In November his company struck a $560 million deal to merge its television manufacturing facilities with those of French consumer electronics giant Thomson. The resulting venture, in which TCL will hold a 67% stake, is expected to have sales of $3.5 billion and ship more than 18 million televisions this year--at least six million more sets than anyone else. The agreement constitutes one of the biggest deals in which a Chinese company has taken control of a Western enterprise. It gives Li effective control of Thomson's television plants in France, Poland, and Thailand, and also of its subsidiary based in Bloomington, Ind.--RCA, proud proprietor of the Nipper trademark.

yeah that’s sad that most of American goods are being outsourced or bought out by foreign companies its also sad when you have an American flag that says made in China. The Chinese need to be sanctioned for undervaluing there currency like they do.

What we need it to get back to the constitution and get rid of 2/3rds of the federal government that is selling us out to China and everybody else!

Your not alone. We paid over 4600 dollars for our 73 inch DLP and have had it serviced twice for the lamp and once for the light engine which is a $2000 part (covered). Mitsubishi has the worst Consumer Affairs agents. They put you on hold for 10 minutes at a time and then transfer and lose the call often. They apologize a lot and do nothing. Our TV was purchased in Dec 2006 and it has had a problem about every 3 to 4 months. Do not buy a Mitsubishi TV or you too will go through this hellish nightmare. From all the other complaints, it doesn't seem to matter which model you buy either.

Upside Down on Mitsubishi Financing
Posted by on
HANFORD, CALIFORNIA -- Buyer beware if you buy a vehicle form Mitsubishi. Be prepared to throw away a lot of money id buying new because when you drive the vehicle off the lot it will automatically depreciate so much that you will owe more than the vehicle is worth longer than any other vehicle on the market. If you like the vehicle and want to keep it go ahead and buy it. Just don't forget the upside down insurance because it will take well over half the life expectancy of the vehicle if you want any hope of recouping any money or breaking even. I suggest buying used. There's plenty of idiots out there that will throw there money away to lease it for a couple years. Then you can pick it up for half the price.

Depreciation is the forgotten variable in a new car purchase. Many times it’s more costly then the finance charge. There are plenty of web sites that offer a true cost of ownership analysis which should be a must before you purchase. An automobile is an expense not an investment. (most of the time)

Defective Big Screen - Replacement Request
Posted by on
WEST VALLEY CITY -- I purchased a Mitsubishi 55' HD big screen (model# 55805, serial# 100800) about 9 months ago from your distributor 'RC Willey' in Taylorsville, UT. The TV hasn't worked properly since I received it and hasn't worked at all for about 3 months. I have been patiently working with your customer relations department and a local repair center trying to get the problem resolved for about 2 1/2 months with no success and little cooperation. I am very unhappy with the quality of the product and the quality of your customer service. I have spent over $20K this year on Mitsubishi products including a new Mitsubishi Galant automobile and I should be treated as a valued customer!

To help keep me as a potential future customer, I would like the following:

I feel that I have been very patient and cooperative with your multiple repair attempts over the past several months. At this point, I must insist on product replacement. If I don't receive an immediate response and product replacement, I will be forced to take legal action. This will include involving the Better Business Bureau, small claims court, as well as a personal 'anti-Mistubishi campaign' via internet, mass e-mailings and postal mailings. I have already invested many hours adding up to days trying to resolve this, I won't hesitate to invest the same time warning others if I'm not taken care of and fully compensated for my time and inconvenience.
DO THE RIGHT THING!
Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.

I had the same problem with a toshiba dvd player that was defective. I had it for aboout 1 mnth before we noticed it wouldn't play certain dvd's on it. It was over $600 and they said that we had to go thought toshiba where we bought it. Toshiba told us they would have it fixed and held it over 3 mnths. My advice to you is to go directly to the bbb and more than likely you will get results, we did as soon as they found out we contacted them.

Continual repairs
Posted by on
I purchased the TV in 2003 and enjoyed it for 2 years. I then had to have the main board replaces for 650 dollars in 2006. We had a power outage last night and now the timer light just blinks. My technician has told me that it will cost between 200 and 600 dollars to fix. I am getting tired of paying 600 a year for this TV. It appears to be a piece of junk. Naturally, since it is out of warranty the manufacture will have nothing to do with it.

Chances are the TV was 'hit' with either a surge or spike. It doesn't take much to damage the circuitry. That's why a good surge/spike protector is recommended for any electronics.

However, if you can find that the circuit board has a known defect then you might have a case.

Check your homeowners insurance. If lightning was the cause you may be covered.
untmom2003 on 2008-07-01:
we are going through the same thing right now. Warranty people can't find someone to come out, and the ones that did, said Mitsubishi is no longer making those boards for these tvs and that the tv would be shipped to Japan and we may/may not get it back repaired. We're going to go shop for a new tv since its been over 2 weeks and still no repair in sight! Will never buy another Mitsubishi anything!

Continue to receive statements for account
Posted by on
MORROW, GEORGIA -- I turned in my lease vehicle in January. I informed the dealer that I would be using my options to lease another vehicle later in the year. I continue to receive statements requesting payment for the car.

I would like to receive information from the dealer in reference to my options, rather than a contract completion bill.

Thanks for your comments, not much help to a person who wants to own a car "outright" without someone leaning over-the-shoulder checking your mileage,etc. But the best to ya!
