I have a triangular shaped shadow in the upper right hand corner of the screen. When looking at projector on the inside notice the shape on lens but lens is clean. Could it be the bulb?

There is a shadow in the upper left corner of the screen

someone is going to have to look inside by either removing the rear upper part of the set or removing the entire front screen---neither is easy to do. But considering your trouble I would not be surprised if the mirror is cracked---the entire front screens would have to be removed to replace the mirror--special mirror and special handling--I have seen several break when someone is not careful putting in.

Small dark area in corner of screen on Samsung HLP5085W

What you have is a lens that has been jarred loose or a plastic support melted. That's what it sounds like anyway. you may have a recall on this problem if it is common for your model. Not likely something you can fix yourself. if you are Gadget inclined you maybe able to though. check recalls first.

Bluish hazy texture on my screen

It sound like the light engine is going out or already out. I would take it to a certified Hitachi dealer have them check it out then I would call Hitachi to have them fix it for free.

Triangular shadow on the upper left corner

You may have a dirty or blocked mirror. You can usually take the back off and clean them. If you don't feel confident about it, a repairman can do it for you. If you clean it yourself, I recommend using a good quality glass cleaner and any type of towel that doesn't produce lint. Coffee filters work very well. Don't leave any streaks!
