DLP color Problem

I have a HP model md5880n HDTV. If I watch NFL, NASCAR in 1080i its great.However, when I'm watching other programs, in 720 or 480, I get weird color. Hard to explain It's like when I watch "CSI" being mostly in the dark the faces of the actors get a redish or greenish glow to them. I know that it is not the cable conection as I move to Direct TV, and I also get this when I watch a DVD disk. Any help on what this problem is called, or what might be the problem? Thanks Healey

Light engine is going to cost some bucks, but the good news is you can replace it your self. If you remember what you unhooked.

Never been able to get 1080i hd through HDMI cable or uhf hd antenna

The programs u are watching must air in HD to get 1080i.Like ABC,CBS are air in HD most of the times.Press ur remote display button will see what modes the shows are playing on.Alot of the channels programs only play on modes 420i,720i modes are just DTV.

MD5880N replaced bulb and worked for 2 hours now nothing

Place heat shielding around the lamp to prevent overheat; use cooling spray (freon) to cool any chips or, circuit boards near the lamp as you attempt to start the set check the lamp for the correct serial # voltage etc.
