4 Answers

Yellow spots & dulling picture

ARe the bulb and "light engine" the same? It appears this may need to be changed. Is there more than one? Is this something I can do myself? Where can I purchase these most reasonably?

No they are not the same, two completely different componenents

www.partstore.com

the above website should have a new part

It is only the light engine that you should be replacing which is a pricey part

If you have any more questions, or need help finding the specific part, please let me know

No, as far as I know, These parts are related but they are not the same.

Its not a cheap part have a look around this website
http://www.nexttronics.com/catalog/hitachi/U/UX22201DR.htm - note that this is most likely not the part you need, look for the correct part with your model number, or part number.

No, the light engine is the whole assembly that the bulb fits in, They aren't cheap, though you could probably replace it yourself with a little patience in a couple of hours or so.

We have a Hitachi 50vf820 LCD television. We have changed the lamp several times since purchase. The picture is dull and not as sharp as it was new. We also have blue/purple splotches around the...


you can fix the dimmed look to the tv by purchasing a new ballast for the DLP bulb.

The spots are non-repairable as they are in the light engine assembly and those are nearly $500-$600 and very labor intense to install.

Hope this helps. Click the hyperlink above to buy the ballast.

Panasonic pt43lc14 no red color. picture is good. cannot get anything to look normal color after trying to adjust color/tint/picture etc. Have alot of blues and yellow, and brown. seems like no red.


It appears that your light engine is broken, I have the same problem. Have you recently changed the bulb with a non-panasonic part bought on the internet. I did this and think thats what caused the problem. I believe the new bulb burn at a higher temp thus causing damage to the Light engine filters

Blue haze and dull yellow patches on screen


The light engine in your set has gone belly up. It is a very expensive repair. Good news is that on a whole bunch of models like yours Sony has extended the waranty on the light engine. Check with a local authorized Sony service center and give them the model & serial number and you might get a free ride. If I were a betting man I'd take odds on 'you're in luck'. LOL

Try the new lamp as indicated by the blink codes. That may resolve the problem. If not, the problem is in the "light engine" portion of the set which should be covered under warranty.
Keep us posted.

Yellow spot on Sony 55"


Possible dust in light engine? What ever you do, don't blow it out with the set on or hot. This easily equals instant death to bulb.

Yellow Spot


Sorry that I have to be the one to let you know this but the light engine in your set has a spot that has developed on your lens. It is not possibile to clean this without making your picture worse. The light engine would need to be replaced in your set to fix this and the cost will not be cost effective. Part number is 3141VSN916C and I cant find it at any dealer for less than 1200 dollars.
