    We have a Sony VPL-HS3 projector and the picture is blue, we rang Sony when it first happened and were told to take it to their service reps, unfortunately they are useless, and nothing was done. The problem has progressively gotten worse now we have just a circle in the middle of the screen that is normal colour. Any suggestions as to what could be the problem?

This is likely a bad light engine. or so I'm told by the LG electronics. The cost of the part can be as much as you paid for the set itself. Call customer service and let them know of your problem and then ask to escalate the issue. LG electronics, although not admitting fault, tried to find a service rep but eventually bought back my set at a pro-rated amount. Overall, I was very satisfied with their support. Best advice I can give you is to not buy a rear projection set again, LCD or DLP. Lamps are expensive and design is unreliable. LCD flat screen is your best option, in my opinion.

Your green gun in our tv is misagligned/out of focus. Your tv uses red, green and blue guns that layer in different shades and mix to create the different colors. Your green is a little off so the colors aren't mixing right which explains the green haze and the shadows. A tv repair man can fix this problem pretty easily and it isnt expenisve.

Kp-51ws510 picture issues


Bob, remove the front speaker panel and you will see a small access panel remove that also and you will see a small block with 6 dials on it. three on top and three on the bottom. Look closely at the dials and you will see focus for 3 of the dials and Screen for the other 3. The dials marked screen control the drive amount for each tube and are laid out like the tubes green dial in the middle and blue dial on the same side as the blue tube. try turning the blue tube down a little. If that deosnt help you will no doubt need a new blue tube, which is a fairly common problem with that model Sony. If you require more assistance please let me know.

Zenith 44" LCD TV


The yellow spot is due to the BLUE LCD and/or lens assy cracked, reason, to much HEAT! The blue is the darkest color and hold the most heat, so it goes first, always! In some cases it’s only the lens, however most of the time LCD is damage to. Parts are available, however install and alignment is timely. Quick fix is the complete light engine, which for model# E44W46LCD is part# 3141VSN916C, which customer cost is $1,449.27, wholesale for about $1,065.21. Rebuilt, if you can find it around 850.00 to 950.00. However the rebuilt does not always look as good as factory. My advice, TRASH set. This part will fail again in about 3 to 4 years, unless you watch a lot of white video. Remember, on a black or dark picture, all three LCD are blocking 100% of the light, causing extreme heat within the light engine. It’s a bad design.

Light in wrong, however I wouldn't waste the money on this unit. Light engine will fail in 3 to 4 years and show a yellow spot at first.

I have the same problem, the service people indicated this a manufacturer problem, they are not calling it a recall, but requires up graded parts which could take 30 days or more to receive. He said if they do not receive the parts in 30 days they might replace the TV. My TV is a Samsung DLP 61 inch
