Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.

The manufacturer normally doesn't count the lamp for the warranty, but call them definitely worth checking w/ the manufacturer. Otherwise if you need to buy a lamp you can try Discount-Merchant.com they have FREE trouble shooting available so you can check to make sure it is the lamp.

It is likely the projection lamp is weak, causing the picture to cycle on and off. Take the lamp out and examine the reflector. If it is dull and cloudy, it's time to replace the lamp. A new lamp will have a reflector that is shiny and looks like a mirror. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Hitachi Rear Projection LCD TV Lamp


Depends on whether you use the TV as your "daily driver" or not. Colour patches on the edges of the screen sounds a bit like a purity problem. If replacing the lamp every year is proving too expensive, not to mention a tad repetitive since it indicates the short life of the lamp(s), plus the set happens to be a few years old, perhaps consider a new TV of approximately the same screen size (50" and up) - if the latter is what you want to do.
