Question about LG RU-44SZ51D 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
All I can suggest is to replace the bulb. I experienced a similar problem after about 2 years viewing when the recommend lamp life was approx 8000 hours (I got to approx 3000 hours). There is a service menu you can access where you can reset the lamp hours time. I have read that if this is reached you must replace your lamp, but you can extended this by reseting the hours.
I have since learnt that a lamp bulb can go at anytime, so it is worth having a spare. Also I have noticed that switching the TV off at the switch (not leaving it in standby helps).
Try this to access the service menu. Holding down the menu button on the remote and the one on the TV for a few seconds. I think the TV needs to be off.
From memory, I think it is option 4 and option 5, then reset the lamp hours to zero
