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.
