    Same problem. Contact an authorized LG repair shop. Repairs will be done at no cost. LG has extended warranty on this set.

I had the same problem. The solution is to replace the light engine. I purchased mine from Tri-State Modules and replaced it myself. You can do it yourself if you are handy and careful. Most places that sell the light engines charge around a thousand dollars. Tri-State Modules can repair your own light engine or you can buy a replacement for much less (I paid $379).

I have a sony wega kdf-50we655 that was given to me but the problem is that there is a yellow spot in the middle and blue pixel dots around. i have never had a big screet t v so is this worth getting fixed...


Light engine (optical block) need to be replaced in tv to solve yellow and blue dots problem, light engine replacement would cost you $1000 to $1200 so its not worth to get repaired because you can buy new LCD tv in that price.
Thanks.

Yellow spot in middle of screen


Hi there,
We have the same exact problem with the same TV. We've only replaced the bulb once about a year ago. Don't know if it had anything to do with the fact that we now have a large yellow circle in the middle of our screen, which is about 7" round.
We only noticed the yellow mark about 4 months ago.
Hopefully someone will have a solution for us that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Paid $2100 for this set and are a little disappointed.

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


I would suggest to try to get this TV fix while still under warranty. Normally the manufacturers give one year.
In regards to the discoloration, there is not much you do but to let the Sony authorized repair center knows about it so they can fix it. Ask them if their work is guarantee as well for how long.
Good Luck.

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.

Yellow spot in center of screen


I have recently developed the same yellow spot problem on my Sony KDF-E50A10  50" LCD television...a large yellow circular hue that takes up the bottom center of the picture and is especially noticeable against a white background.  It has been diagnosed as the optical block (light engine) and without an extended warranty Sony refuses to assist with the repair cost.  Repair was estimated at $1,100 plus tax and travel fees to my home.  So you see, it is not only a Hitachi problem.  You would think they could build something that would last more than two years considering the initial cost of over two grand for the TV !
