3D DLP Related Questions

Digital Light Processing or DLP is a video projection technology that uses an optical semi-conductor or a chip called Digital Micromirror Device to process the light digitally. 3D DLP is a technology that allows its users to view images on a third dimensional level. To use this technology, you would need to have a 3D DLP television, ready screen or a projector, compatible software to play back 3D stereoscopic movies or images, 3D DLP compatible movies and images and compatible DLP 3D active shutter glasses. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to 3D DLP that has been answered by the Experts.

How can an individual fix the problem where there are increased and random pixels outages on a Mitsubishi DLP 3D Ready TV screen?

It seems likely that your TV has a faulty DLP chip. Usually, there are two million hinge mounted mirrors in a DLP chip. Each one of those mirrors is about 0.0008 inch wide. When the mirror is on, it creates a bright pixel on the display by tilting towards the projection lamp. However, when the mirror is off, it would generate a dark pixel by moving away from the lamp. The dots, in this case, are the mirrors that are stuck. In most cases, you would find that the mirrors are stuck either in the ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’ position. Usually, white dots would appear on your screen when mirrors are stuck ‘ON’ while dark dots would refer to mirrors that are stuck ‘OFF’. Now, since this issue is a very common one, you would want to call Mitsubishi and have them repair it. They might fix this problem for free even if you are not under warranty. Alternately, you might consider contacting a qualified technician to fix this issue as it would require a significant process of disassembly. It is not an easy repair to perform and therefore, the best thing to do would be to replace the TV.

Can I get a 3D Samsung converter that is compatible with 50a650 DLP TV?

In this case, it is unlikely you would get a 3D Ready glass or an emitter package manufactured by Samsung for their DLP TV’s. It is only for the LCD, LED and Plasma TV’s that Samsung manufactures the 3D packages. However, you would find many other manufacturers and companies that do make DLP based 3D packages with glasses and emitters.

How can I watch 3D movies on my DLP TV? Can I connect my TV directly to my computer for this, or does the individual need to buy a 3D kit?

In this case, you would need to get one of the 3D DLP products first. You could get these products from Mitsubishi or Samsung. Then you would need to buy a 3D kit. Once that is done, the next thing you should do is burn the 3D movie to a DVD player to connect it to your 3D kit. However, you must know that directly connecting your TV set with your computer for 3D would not be a very good idea. It would affect the picture quality because of bandwidth issues. Therefore, in order to get a better quality of 3D picture, using DVD is always a good choice as it would provide you with a proper bandwidth.

DLP is a projection technology that uses Digital Micromirror Device. It is applied in separate video projectors, screen applications as well as rear-projection televisions. It allows its users to enjoy an affordable display of 3D projection from a single unit that can be used with both active and passive 3D solutions. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to 3D DLP, you may ask an Expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
