I have a Mitsubishi...

I have a Mitsubishi 73" DLP WD-73833 TV. Lamps go out fast. I need a an AUTHORIZED repair person in my area or least close enough to make the drive...

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Mitsubishi is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It;s the Diamond Series... I bought it 4/2008. It was a fairly new model at that time. It was one of the 1st 120hz.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes... Inputs fine that I am aware of. No control issues.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

A little over a year. I was getting 3 6 months out of a lamp at that time. Recently they have lasted weeks, the last 2 days...

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the expert to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything at the moment.

I have gotten them from a couple of sources on Amazon. $24 - $32...
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The price ranges up to $175.00 plus

That is where lies your problem , those cheap lamp do not last and thats correct they usually sell for well over $100

Do not spend a $125 on a service call , the tech. will tell you the same thing .

Give me a minute please

Here is a link where you can get one with a year warranty for $93.49 ; http://www.shopjimmy.com/mitsubishi-915p061010-dlp-replacement-lamp-with-philips-bulb.htm

You better off spending a bit more now and have a lamp that should last years not weeks
