Re: Purple blotches

Ok, so I'm about to flip a lid with my TV. I am showing purple quater sized blotches all over my screen. I bought it for a discounted price because of this issue, in hopes i could fix it. I took the back panel off the TV. ( about a 6in * 6 in plate) removed the light bulb and cleaned the bulb and lens, where the light bulb faced. I used a dust cleaner and special cloth. NOTHING! I took the entire front screen off cleaned it and then cleaned the mirror and second lens.... NOTHING! Then i heard that dusk sometimes gathers behind the lens and that should be cleaned. Try this, Its 4 screws, just be careful and remember the way you took it out, because it has to be replaced the same way.

I have yellow and purple blotches on screen

I had this same problem on my Mitsubishi rear projection WD52527 model television. The optic engine was changed twice, and the blotches were still there. It turned out that it was the mirror inside the television that was causing the purple blotches. It was filthy and once the repairman took it out and cleaned it the discolorations were gone. Hope this helps

Problem with a colour display on Hisense tv

If your picures are all purple it means that the green colour is missing. TV colour is made up by mixing Red, Green & Blue. Removing Green leaving Red & Blue makes purple. Study the green colour circuit for a fault and confirm that the green gun inside the tube is working.

Purple blotches on Mitsubishi WD 52527

yes you can clean it. i clean mine all the time. after you remove the screws at the bottom you should be able to just lift it up. it will be hard be cause there is sticky tape with a hinge that the hole screen sould just lift off. i know it doesnt feel like it but it will. just do one side at a time. now the problem with the purple spots are because you move a speaker to close to the front of the tv the was not shielded and cause it to do this. you can move the tv so that the earths magnetic field will restore it for you. make sure the tv is not plugged in when you move it for 2 to 3 days . after the 2 to 3 days plug tv back in and leave on for 2 hours. after this you can move it back and plug back in. this should fix it. if not you will need it to be degoudged. tv repair center can do this at your home. hope this help you.... thanks eddy
