I had an authorized Sony repairman come to my home. I'm sorry that I cannot remember the part that needs replacing but I can tell you that it cost $700+ and $200+ for labor. We would be stupid to replace it instead of buying a new TV. I doubt I will invest in another Sony as this is a known and common problem with these TV.

Turned on my Element FLX 3210 32" TV this morning. When it powered on, there was a black spot in the middle of the screen that reached from the top of the screen to the bottom. The left and right...


there are 2 capacitors on the power board that need replaced with exact replacements. They will be labeled ec17 and ec18 on the power board. The caps themselves will probably be brown or black and say 10uF 450v on them. You should be able to get the parts at radio shack or digikey or mouser. You will also need a solder gun and some solder. Check youtube on how to solder and always remember to unplug the TV before servicing.

Blue spots on screen.


Sounds like your light engine is going bad. I would have it verified by a service tech.

Hitatchi 52" rear projection TV has blue spot in middle of screen


Hello :
I suggest u retrace you the steps u took to replace your lamp make sure no foriegn objects got on the prism where the light shines throung the optics engine, if you remove the lamp compartment througly. If you had a perfect picture prior to replacing the lamp, then retracing your steps you might find something that does not belone. One final note: Did you purchase the right lamp 120watts anything higher than this wattage could damage your optics engine. I suggest never vacuuming the compartment because particals fly around from the suction and could get on the glass of the color wheel asembly.

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The HD-ila sets accumulate a lot of dust in the light engine. The worst offender is the little fold mirror just under the lens. I take my set apart about every 8 months or so to clean all the dust from the light tunnel and all lenses, mirrors, diffusers etc. The picture really regains it's pop when this is done. Unless you are a skilled technician though, I would recommend against attemptimg this procedure as you need to disconnect the individual color lcds. Check with a local service center to get it properly cleaned.

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The gray spots are caused by dust on your lens, very easy to clean.

Power down the TV.

If you open the right side access panel (right side as you are looking at the front of the TV) you can see it in the middle, it's not very big. Using a scratch/lint free cloth, gently wipe off the lens or use a vacuum to **** up the dust being careful not to actually touch the lens.

Replace the access panel and enjoy your spot free screen.
