Tv is two years old we have full warrenty it will not even turn on now,have had a repair man out,and told it is the lamp,this is the only thing not coverd in the warrenty.And will cost approx.£350 ,can you tell me if this is a common fault and do you know of any one else who have had this problem.
I do not have this TV but I have a LG rear projection LCD - RT52SZ30RB and it has blue patches across the screen. I have had it for 3-4 years but the blue patches have been there for 1-2 years. It seems to be common with this model but no solution posted yet. Could it be lens alignment or dust on the lens? Any help would be great

chance are your problem is the projector lamp and not the mirrors. if the tv is 4 years old or more buy a new lamp, they are easy to change. as far as the mirrors go, you have take the back off to get at the mirror but its a lot of work try the lamp first.
Turn on tv have flashes of pictures few sec.than dies have sound left only.Yes,than the 2 long boards call the LCD inverter boards are dead.These 2 long LCD inverter boards help the LCD screen to have a backlight to produced a picture.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy those 2 long refurbishes LCD inverter boards for the replacement.This tv is under a year old right?Look in ur user manual for the service phone numbers.Call for a warrenty repair.
Mine is doing the same thing. It's under warrenty and a guy is coming to look at it today. I will post more info once I find out more. I had called LG and they told me it's a problem with Gemstar and an upgrade that is going on with them. Not a TV problem. We will see.
SOUNDS LIKE ANOTHER LAMP. WHICH MAY JUST BE BAD LUCK. PROJECTION LAMPS CAN GO OUT IN ONE DAY OR LAST TEN YEARS THERE SUPPOSE TO AVERAGE 4000 TO 6000 VEIWING HOURS AND THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT FARIABLES THAT CAN AFECT IT. IM ASSUMING YOU HAVE A KDSR60XBR1 WHICH HAD A PROBLEM WITH THERE OPTICAL BLOCKS. I HAVE REPLACED MANY AND NEVER HAD A CALL BACK YET IN REGAURDS TO THAT BUT LAMPS ARE A DIFFERENT STORY. I WOULDNT WORRY IF I WAS YOU BUT IF THIS NEW LAMP GOES OUT SONNER THAN EXPECTED THEN I WOULD LOOK AT THE BALLAST IT IS WHAT POWERS THE LAMP
I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.
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.
