Hitatchi 52" rear projection TV has blue spot in middle of screen

I recently replaced the projection lamp on my 52" rear projection TV and there is an irritating blue "spot" in the center of the screen. Before the lamp went out the TV worked perfectly. Now it seems that the blue "spot" is becoming blue "spots". I tried adjusting everything, but it's not working. I wore latex gloves when I replaced the bulb and vacuumed out all the dust around the lamp cavity. Thanks.

Hello :
I suggest u retrace you the steps u took to replace your lamp make sure no foriegn objects got on the prism where the light shines throung the optics engine, if you remove the lamp compartment througly. If you had a perfect picture prior to replacing the lamp, then retracing your steps you might find something that does not belone. One final note: Did you purchase the right lamp 120watts anything higher than this wattage could damage your optics engine. I suggest never vacuuming the compartment because particals fly around from the suction and could get on the glass of the color wheel asembly.

Zenith model D52wlcd projection TV has been saying replace lamp for several weeks. Has had a small pink spot in middle of screen. Now full screen is pink. is this a lamp problem or just DOA?


The Lamp will no cause any color distortion. The "Replace Lamp" message comes up after a certain amount of hours after watching the TV because the lamp only last a certain number of hours before needing a replacement one.

It sounds like a light engine problem. There is no quick fix, you need to replace the whole light engine which is very costly (light engines usually run at least $500) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart to replace part).

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The gray spots are caused by dust on your lens, very easy to clean.

Power down the TV.

If you open the right side access panel (right side as you are looking at the front of the TV) you can see it in the middle, it's not very big. Using a scratch/lint free cloth, gently wipe off the lens or use a vacuum to **** up the dust being careful not to actually touch the lens.

Replace the access panel and enjoy your spot free screen.

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.
