Question about JVC HD-61Z575 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Green Tint on half of the screen

I recently replaced the lamp in the TV. The picture was great before. Now When you turn tv on it is noticably more dim (until it warms up) than the older lamp. It also has a green tint near the bottom left part of the screen. As it gets warmer the screen starts to get more green through out the left side. Usually only when the picture is darker do you notice it. During well lit scenes, there is no noticeable green tint.

My question is why all of a sudden. Could it be the brand of bulb used? I have read elsewhere that LTI or ITL lamps are not as good as the JVC brand.

    I have the same symptom. Just replaced the bulb with a JVC replacment and have never had any issues. Now no matter the source there is a green tint on the bottom left of the screen

This is most likely a defect in the optical unit (about $1500.00 part). If out of warranty probably will just have to live with it. Those op units are also hard to get.

Thomson 50DSZ644. Just replaced the Lamp great picture but burned smell.. after few house it smelled verry bad..and i turned off. now when i turn on the tv the picture in middle is dark and still thi

should have unplugged it when you noticed the smell.

UNPLUG and remove and look at lamp you installed--is something in the housing where lamp goes melted? I hope you did not touch the face of the bulb with your hand or fingers.

What ever is wrong find it before trying to use set again.

Sony KDS 50a2020. Tv Seems to Dull. not a setting.

Two possibilities:

1. The lamp. When did you last replace it? They will dim over time and lose focus, clarity, brightness and sharpness. If it has been 18-24 months, and this is your main tv, consider replacing it.

It's a F-9308-860-0. They go for about $175.00.

2. Let's say you follow my advice, put in a new lamp and the picture is still dim, dark, dingy and fuzzy? Then you, my friend, need a new Optic Assembly. The thing your lamp shines into and the thing that gives you a picture to look at. They can fail or wear out for all sorts of reasons--too many for me to type out now. But, suffice to say, if you have recently replaced the lamp (less than 6 months) and are experiencing a drop in brightness, consider getting on the phone with Sony. Even if you are out of warranty, your set is covered against Optic failure until June 30, 2010.

Hope this helps.

How to clean Mitsubishi TV WD-52327 fliter

Remove the 2 screws in the access panel on the left rear side of the tv. You will see the filter behind it. Rinse the filter in warm water until clean. Lay it flat on a paper towel and fold the other half of the paper towel over it. Press gently on the towel to soak up most of the water, and install it in the tv.

Tv doesn't turn on.

Does this have a replacable lamp? If so it will do exactly this. If it does it's probably fried.

Check the lamp timer to see how many hours are on it.  If is is near the estimated end of life for your TV replace the lamp.  It will get dimmer as it approaches its end of life.  The lamp timer should be in your menu.

Hello. I have a Zenith DLP Projection TV that I bought new from the store (possibly the display in the store) that has been working fine for 2 years. Just only a few weeks ago, the color seemed a...

Sounds like you need to replace your lamp and the tv will work fine until the new lamp goes out. I have had three lamps since Nov 2006 in mine and I have a notice coming up on my Panasonic saying I need to change the lamp right now. Which is strange, because before there was no warning, it worked fine and then when we went to turn it on again, it just did not work until the lamp was replaced.
