Re: Zenith color problem
We have seen this several times and the yellow spot is due to a problem in the light engine. Major repair and very expensive. The amber lite is simply the lamp replace indicator. After the lamp is replaced a programmer remote is required to get into the service menu an reset the timer.

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).
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.
No the bulb indicator is on a timer just meaning that is is reaching its "expected" life. The lamp will cause a dim picture or no picture it will not cause color deformities sorry. The light engine to fix that set is also priced higher than the set is worth.
Any color spot is never the lamp with this type of set.
the yellow spot is caused by the optic block (Engine). Very expensive to buy.
Little over $1000 plus labour with a qualified technician.
Sometimes technician may try to clean or repair inside but most likely won't succed.
There is a device that can be used to correct your concerns. Symptoms can be correct by EE PROM CORRECTION TOOL: LSUQ0100. Instructions included. Try calling 1-800-458-6053. It's under $100.00 and takes about 1 hour from start to finish.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
The huge yellow circle is either your blue filter is burnt out (very common in Zenith DLP) or you LCD cube is bad. I would bet it is the blue filter. Zeniths DLPs have 3 color filters one blue (a pinkish color), one green (a grayish brown)and one red (it is red). For the bulb indicator I would check and make sure your lamp is seated to the ballast correctly. Just take it out and put it back in.
The blue filter is burnt out. A very common problem in Zenith DLPs. There are 3 color filters, 1 blue (a pinkish color), 1 green (a grayish brown) and 1 red (it is red) they give you your colors for you picture. This is a simple fix.
