Here is in laymans terms what the problem is. The blue film from the RGB on the input is close to a heat source and over time the heat source burns through the filter and washes out the blue lead. I know that was a lousy explanation, but that is what it is. I had mine replaced 2 months ago. Supposed to be a permanent fix. (extra filter put in.) When it is replaced, they replace the complete apparatus, all three colors, light, and mirror.

Actually hardrocko it is not a DLP light engine so the link you put up is completely wrong. DLP TVs have light engine and LCD projection have optical blocks. These are two totally different technologies. It is possible to fix this problem by cleaning the blue lcd chip. This link is more efficient in helping you solve your problem. It is for a sony LCD projection but very similiar to the 60in LG. http://sites.google.com/site/sonylcdrptvproblems/optical-block-defects and http://sites.google.com/site/sonylcdrptvproblems/sonykdf-55wf655opticalblockreplacement these two site should help you fix your problem if these don't fix it then unfortunately you will have to invest in a new optical block which will cost roughly $700. I've got the RU60SZ10 which is pretty much the same TV and these two sites have helped me tremendously.

I have read another solution which may indicate the light engine has failed and will likely need replacing. The cost is quite expensive. $1500 range and apparently the part is no longer available from LG. Best you might do is get an estimate to repair just to be sure.

yes the yellow spots mean its a optical block problem. in your case it is the yellow LCD panel inside the optical block. this is not a diy fix you need special tools to realign the panel. sorry for the bad news.
