Re: 52hmx85 toshiba

Yes it is, here is the advice on bulbs:

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.
Hope ya fix it!

Why does the television power off by itself when color is fading in and out

Not real likely it is the lamp unless the picture is dark and has been getting darker.

I doubt it is the lamp.

Gray faded look on top to picture

It can be the plastic anti polarizing screen that covers the display.

Often it causes grey or red shadows on top of the picture.

Was the lamp replaced? They're not always shattered inside...Sometimes they look ok and are defective.
