    I replaced my projection bulb a back in February. (I also replaced it in Feb. 2007).

    My TV plays on average 3hr/day. When I turned it on yesterday, I noticed a blue haze in the center of the screen. What is it and how can I fix it?

    i had this tv for maybe around 2 years now, and it also have a blue haze on the lower right part of the tv

    I have the blue haze too. I bought this TV in February 2005 from Best Buy. About a year ago the blue haze began in the bottom right hand part. It has now spread the entire right side of the screen. I thought that my service plan with Best Buy expired and there was nothing I could do. Last week I discovered I had bought a 4 year plan (?!) and I am still covered. They are coming to repair it on Tuesday. I am curious to see if the problem actually goes away. I will update accordingly.

I have developed a blue spot just off from center in my rear projection LCD television. The spot still has the picture behind it but the spot is irritating it is approx 6 inches in diameter. Any ideas?

It sounds like the Optical Block is causing the problem. You would need to call the Manufacture and see who in your area works on your brand and get the symptom confirmed. They may even help with repairs due to the cost of the part.
I hope this helps,

My picture has been getting a blue area in the lower right hand corner of the screen and it is getting bigger farther along the bottom and the right side, also noticed a ring or outline of a circle when...

It is light engine that is going bad and causing blue haze/ clouds etc.
It is an expensive part, and I would recommend a new TV instead of its repair.

My ViewSonic va1930wm monitor has black spots.

How long have you owned it? Mine did the same thing. It was a dead spot which got worse. It was just past warranty (of course) but I took it back to Home Depot & they worked with me to get it replaced. Unfortunately, I think this is your only hope. The monitor dept. told me that once they get dead spots there is nothing you can do for them. Wish the news was better.

Blue spot

the model number KP-51WS510 deosnt use a bulb or lamp. and touching the face of the lamp will not cause color problems in the picture. if your tv is an LCD projection then i would suspect the optical engine as the culprit. to check when you turn the tv off do you still see the blue distortion? if so then you have a bad optical long as it is an LCD projection.
