I own a 60-inch HDTV Mitsubishi 1080p DLP Model # WD 60735.

This answer was rated:

I own a 60-inch HDTV Mitsubishi 1080p DLP Model # XXXXX 60735. The lamp stopped working Monday evening. We followed the instructions and the red indicator light remained on. I never noticed any blinking red light warning us that the lamp was beginning to fail. I bought this television 22 December 2008, from Circuit City. How long is a lamp powering this widescreen DLP supposed to last? Would you be able to give me the model number to the lamp for this model HDTV? Would I be able to replace the lamp with a longer lasting one that may not be specifically for this TV model?




Lare normally warranty for one year. The amount of time you can expect should be in the range of 1500 to 2000 hours.


I don't know of any replacement lamps that are built to last longer.


I can try and help with the lamp part number and best place to order from, but I will need a better model number. The one you gave me did not show up on the MItsusbishi

parts locator.


Please recheck model number.

Oops, sorry. I transposed the number. WD 60735



The replacement lamp can be purchased through a number of Sources.


Also google replacement lamps for model WD 60735

this way you can compare prices at different parts distributors.


Most offer a one year free replacement warranty.


If you decide to replace the lamp yourself, be sure to follow instructions

that come with the replacement lamp and do not touch with bare hands.

Oil from you hands can shorten the lamp life.



I found that there a number a complaints to Mitsusbishi on this and similiar models

with the lamp going out.


You might want to check this out for yourself.

One more question. ... Would I need to purchase the "bare" bulb, or should I invest in the bulb with the housing?

It will cost you less for the bare bulb.

If you are handy at small projects, it is fairly easy to change just the bulb.


If you buy the complete housing its just one screw open the cover on the back

pull the housing and bulb out and plug the new one in.


Be sure to replace cover securely befo trying to turn set back on.
