Picture blurred with yellow cast

Its a Dlp that uses a lamp---the yellow cast suggests a damaged Optical light Engine----Google the model number with problems and you may learn more---if the engine is bad it may not be cost effective to repair the set.

Blue lite flash in front wont turn on

Most likely you have experienced a lamp failure, Part # UX21516.
I use Ebay for lamps all the time and really like a company called
enter the part number and you will find either the bare lamp or whole assembly with them
they ship for free. Remove the lamp from the cabinet, if you heard a pop, that was the anode of the lamp failing.

Tv doesnt turn on and the lamp bulb is blinking


I recently replaced my lamp in my Hitachi 50VG825 TV and the red light was continually blinking for the lamp. The manual tells us to make sure that the lamp is screwed in tightly. I opened the covered and sure enough the screws needed to be tightened.

Try that and make sure you replace the tv cover. Hopefully this will work out for you like it did for me.

Picture getting dark

Ok, so it could be both then. Um if u open up the monitor, then u should see a small chip at the bottom of the lcd. This is called the Inverter. You might have to replace that. I would take it down to any local computer shop, they usually have tools to test it, and see if its broken. unles u just wana replace it, i think they average around 40$ u can simply unplug the old one, and plug a new one in, but it wont be 100% guarantied that. could be a bad installation of your new lamp aswel.
