If you purchased a malfunctioning Mitsubishi LaserVue laser-light-engine-based DLP rear-projection set between 2008-2012, you might be entitled to a free product repair or reimbursement for any work performed to fix it.
That’s because the parent of the marketing company, Mitsubishi Electronics Visual Solutions America, which exited the U.S. consumer rear projection TV business in December 2012, has agreed to a preliminary settlement in a consumer class-action lawsuit over problems that have caused a range of picture defects, including splotchy images and darkened sections of the screen after about 8,000 to 10,000 hours of use.
The firm handling the settlement for the consumers, Gilardi & Co. LLC of San Rafael, CA, last week posted a web site notifying qualifying parties that they might have a stake to the settlement relief benefits, and is gathering names and case numbers now. The firm leaves a telephone number for those with further questions: 888-289-0223.
