The bottom half of the tv is flawless. The worse when I use Picture in Picture. Could this be my bulb? Thanks for help in advance

A month ago our house was struck by lightning and The Insurance company wants to know what the price of the Television. Or what it is worth today. He purcheased the TV about 4or5 years ago. the tv was...

$150 usd- $177usd. SEE HERE

Quote from the link...
" My Bottom Line

Considering the price, I am pleased as punch with this purchase. Expecting to receive only basic features, the Orion shouldn't disappoint. Audio buffs should look elsewhere, but at a purchase price of approximately $150 for a 27" TV, one isn't looking to the STV2763A as a high tech set. I'm sure I'm forgetting certain specs here, but this my low tech review of a low tech set. I'm happy with the Orion, a nice balance of value and price."

Amount Paid (US$): 177.00

Since it is 4-5 years old look to get less than half from the insurance co.

The t.v. has too much color

First set the color to 0, the TV should be in black and white. if there is a purple or rainbow color then your tube may be failing. Most default settings are when everything is half way(centered). If this dosen't correct the issue than there is an issue on your main board.

50? Samsung DLP TV Model #HLR-5067W

Did you use an original replacement lamp or an aftermarket replacement? From the price you give, it sounds like an aftermarket lamp, which are notoriously buggy and the problem may be with the lamp. If not, the lamp driver is your next likely culprit. It is also called a lamp power supply or lamp ballast.

Sony trinitron 32 " purple area on screen

Check any magnatic device near TV which causes purple color on screen. That device can be Speaker, Electronic toy, Watch like that carring piece of magnet inside. Remove that device and turn OFF your TV for half a hour, then power again. Hope the color will be fine n normal on entire screen.

It is unlikely that you can do anything yourself.
It sounds to me that there is a power supply problem that has steadily gotten worse and that cannot be confirmed remotely, it must be done on site by an equipped professional.
