    I have a hitachi pj-tx 100 and at about 2000 hrs use (just out of warranty) a blue patch appeared all down the right side of the screen and across the bottom. I clean the filter regularly and have the fan set on high. Last night I watched the screen completely fill with a cappilary like motion of black lines! what is going on, I thought these were a top of the line projector??

You didn't state how many hours are on the unit, but I'm guessing close to 3,000 hours, that is when most brands have LCD panel failures, due to the heat over time the coating on the lcd panels burns off, the panels start to burn up, and it gets worse with time, and you notice it more when you put a fresh bright lamp in. if it is low hours then you could have a bad lamp, that casts a bad tint, but it sounds like fried LcD panels, a sure way to tell, is put up a white back-ground screen and see if you see discolored "BLOB" in the center of the screen.
keeping the filters clean, and the projector cool is the best way to prevent this.

Its an obstruction on reflectors beyond lamp.remove lamp,clean it anyway(dry cloth)get hair dryer ,blow into casing to remove residue,re fit lamp.not the the best remedy but the other way requires disassemble and voids warranty but this disperses build up of dust

I had the same problem with my Hitachi PJTX100. I discovered that there was considerable dust build-up inside the unit, causing insufficient venting of heat which then damaged the color prism/filter. It was close enough in time to the warranty for Hitachi to cover parts replacement (approximately $1,600). Since the repair, I regularly vacuum not only the outer cover but also the inner air filter that easily snaps on and off.

(1) Send the setting code Header + Command data (‘01H’+‘00H’+ type (2 bytes) +
setting code (2 bytes)) from the computer to the projector.
(2) The projector changes the setting based on the above setting code.
(3) The projector returns the response code ‘06H’ to the computer.
Using the projector default settings (Reset Command)
(1) The computer sends the default setting code Header + Command data (‘06H’+
‘00H’+ type (2 bytes) +‘00H’+‘00H’) to the projector.
(2) The projector changes the specified setting to the default value.
(3) The projector returns the response code ‘06H’ to the computer.

case, the command is not executed and the error code ‘15H’ is sent back to the
computer. If this error code is returned, send the same command again.
When the projector cannot execute the received command.
When the projector cannot execute the received command, the error code ‘1cH’
+ ‘xxxxH’ is sent back to the computer. When the data length is greater than
indicated by the data length code, the projector ignore the excess data code.
Conversely when the data length is shorter than indicated by the data length
code, an error code will be returned to the computer.

I have a Panasonic PT-52LCX15. 3 months ago I changed the lamp and now I have a blue -ish line along the left side of the screen?????


This sounds like a damaged optical light engine.

This set uses a L shaped engine--the lamp shines into it and heat from the lamp can cause the prisms/lens inside to warp slightly(hint: blue is the first part of the engine to get the light from the lamp--usually shows first).

If no extended warranty it is going to be an expensive repair--the engine is the most expensive part of the set.

Let me know with a comment here if you have questions.

3LCD Projection TV 2.5 years old displaying blue hue/blobs


I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.

HDTV is getting blue dots and the right side has turned blue


These issues are problems in the light engine (optics block)
the dots are called "starfield" and the geometric is "roadmap"
replacing the light engine will fix the issue. for awhile, sony was extending the warrany on the engine for these issues only, but that may have expired.
