Question about LG RU-52SZ51D 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have had my TV for just over a year and never had any problems with the image on my screen. However, 2 days ago I noticed that the last 4"-5"" of my screen (vertical line on the left side only) have dropped in intensity by about 80-90%. This occured suddenly and there were no noticable indicators prior to this. I have ruled out a problem with incomming signal by trying out my DVD with the same results. The TV has not been moved, or bumped, or exposed to any harmful elements (including magnetic fields from speakers). Any suggestions before I contact aervice rep? Thanks in advance.
Same thing has happened to me but the tech said the light engine has gone out and to replace it cost as much as the tv. So after this I will never buy anything with the words LG or projection. Please don't buy this junk get a plasma or lcd.

It is the lamp. I just recieved this exact set which had a bad lamp. I installed another lamp from an older projector that I found and I now get a very dim picture all over and I noticed the black on the left side. I will be ordering a new lamp soon as the one that I put in isn't enough wattage to show a bright picture. But I at least know that the set works.

If Im not mistakin this is a DLP projection system. The problem your describing most likly is not the dlp display chip Your problem sounds like it could be a reflection problem like smoke dirt or dust on the lens or light sheld or light reflector. Im thinking could even be the lamp its self.
