Question about Hitachi 53SBX59B 53" Rear Projection Television

Hazy yellow spot in the left lower corner of the screen

There is a hazy yellow spot in the left lower corner of the screen of my Hitachi 53SBX01BA Rear projection TV. I don't think it is the convergence because the screen is clear even behind the hazy spot. Do you have any answers as to what it might be and how I can fix?

    I have the same problem but the yellow spot is in the right lower portion

    of my screen. I took the entire back off the set and vacumed gently, then cleaned the gun surfaces. the spot did not go away! My husband took out the bulb and checked the surface for dirt or imperfections,no

    cause was found there and the spot is still visible. I"m all out of home

    remedies! Any one have any other ideas?

It could be a cob web inside the tv or something laying on one of the guns, like a dead bug. If it's a cob web, you should be able to move the tv a little side to side and see it change from the moving air current. I would remove the back and vacuum off the lenses of the guns and look for cob webs. It's safe to touch and clean the lenses, just don't touch any electronics.If this doesn't fix it, it's probably fluid starting to cloud up in the guns or IC chip problems.

If that blue hazy line is there in all inputs and no signal, you have a defective light engine. Contact Sony Customer Support because they extended the light engine warranty on some models.
