Re: yellow lines

This is an LCD type projection set, so your problem COULD be a bad light filter on one of the LCD's in the light engine, or something is on one of the mirrors inside the set. Replacing or serviceing the light engine inside these sets should only be attempted by a trained service tech, because of the equipment thats needed to do this repair. good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.

Color wash at upper right corner of screen and lower left corner, color bleed. Resembles the colors of a florescent yellow or purple highlighter.

Projection TV sets have two common problems. The first is known as a convergence problem. Common symptoms are....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.

Dlp tv has smattering of white (and just a few black) squares in upper right hand corner. Thick at corner then thining as spreads. Covers1/4 of picture. The rest of the picture is perfect.

You have a bad DMD board. It is easily replaced but not easily aligned. I would suggest having a technician look at the TV. The DMD board is the board with the million little mirros on it. The white squares indicate a few mirrors sticking in the on position reflecting the light from the lamp constantly. The black are just the opposite reflecting no light at all.
