We have had our TV for four years. We started having problems soon after we bought the TV. Had a repairman out to fix the problem. Helped for awhile. The picture has now gradually faded out and none of the adjustments do anything. We can not fix the problem. Also the whites are too bright and occassionally the faces have green splotches on them. The TV is way too big to transport and we are looking for a repairman that can come to our house to fix it. Can you help? Linda Metzer

Re: Bad color, faded out picture
Typically, overtime your tv will become out of tune.
The way a display TV works is by shooting electromagnetic pluses through a vacuum guided by variations of magnetic stability.
What that means is overtime magnets tend to wear down thus resulting in a repairman call. Unless you are a expert in the field of tv repair i would also suggest for you to call them up and have them come fix it again. Although, though experiences and a budget, if you are able to upgrade to a LCD flatscreen I say do it. It will save money in electricity and the hassle of someone having to come fix your display.
Please post what you do and how you did it.
I look forward to your posts.

Sounds like your color wheel may be at fault. Do you ever hear any unusual noises coming from the rear of the TV? Color Wheels usually make a humming sound as they go bad. This is because the tiny bearings in the color wheel motor have begun to misshape from use and heat. Your TV may have a new type color wheel assy that has a slightly different configuration but the result is the same.
I have the same tv and the same problem (color banding, incorrect colors, colors blinking) occured after I replaced the lamp. I had a tv repairman take a look at my unit and he said the color index was incorrect, the tv doesn't know the correct colors to display. The best way to fix that problem is to replace the "light engine". The repairman replaced the "light engine" to my tv and everything is working great. My tv was still until warrenty so I don't know how much a new "light engine" would have cost.
one of the problems is that tubes for projectors are getting hard to get. parts hard to find plus there is a chance the red tube will go soon.I have 25 years in the busniess i feel you should start looking for another tv. The hard thing is figuring what kind to get.
there is plasma which has burned in imiage problems and bad panel they are heavy but thin. There lcd tv lighter last alonger time but have power supply problems and the picture is not as good as plasma. and you have dlp they look like projectors but they take abulb that gos bad every 2 years and cost 300.00 but are in expensive. make sure you get the warr tvs today only last around three years i hope this helps thanks doctor video. Bottom line is get the warr then you never have to worry what ever you decide its worth it. thanks DOCTOR VIDEO
