It's the light tunnel. The tunnel is a square tube made up of 4 mirrors glued together.

It looks like this from the side: |_| (with a piece on top too.)
When the glue breaks down, it shifts inside the little mirror holder. The shifted mirrors looks like this /_/ what you are seeing is the shadow of the tilted mirror tunnel.
ON the RCA's there's not a good fix.

RCA's response:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay for a broken engine and replace it that ways."

That is the ONLY response I got from them.

I took the set apart and found the 4 tiny mirrors. I will be attempting to epoxy them together. (The set is dead anyway, why not try?)

If all 3 colors are mis-aligned, you may have solder connections that blew a fuse. There are three fuses next to the flyback transformer, one usually blows causing this issue. Resolder the flyback solder connections and replace the fuse to fix.

Shadow top to bottom of screen on left side about 2" wide...


This can be the sync wheel assy, failure in the drive circuit for the display chip, or an illumination fault. You will have to give the set out for service.

I have an rca 61" dlp hdtv. It is about 5 years old. I have a shadow over part of the picture and it has suddenly lost most of its brightness.


In terms of figuring out what was causing the problem, I have answered that question. I disassembled the light engine and found that I have a burned plastic optic lens in a part I believe is called the "light gate". Now the challenge is to find a place where I can get one since you apparently cannot get it from RCA. I certainly would never buy another TV from RCA or Thompson.

No, don't wait. Make sure you get RCA to cover this under warranty. Don't wait for everyone with this model to have the same problem and jam up RCA with the customer service nightmare that is rampant in this industry.
