Yellow/green blotch appears in light areas


Hi,If there's any discoloration,pixilation or hues on the tv it will be an issue w the light engine's 3 lcd chips.This link explains how the lcd technology works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and picture by blending together all when the light of the lamp goes through them.When they start to melt they will start to show the symptoms.You will need to replace the 3 lcd chips or replace the light engine.Good luck and God bless your house!
