Classic symptom of a failing sync circuit.
do not run it as it will likely smoke soon.
Call Repair tech now.

    As this is a newer unit only a person with experience on this model can likely fix it.
    It is just some of the components heating up or drying out.
    but folks only replace module now days.
    It won't be cheap, but you got the extended 5 year warranty right.

LG DLP Projection TV Green/Brouwn vertical Bar


Hi there.

The excessive heat from your lamp has burned one or 2 polarizing lenses.
To replace this you have to pull the optic engine out of the unit and dismantle it.
You will see 3 square lenses in there, remove one by one until you find the burned one.
Then go to ebay and type in hoya polarizing lense.
Buy the 72mm one and cut it to size.

hope this helps.

Shadow down left hand side of screen


Is it an LCD or DLP? The Model below suggests it is an DLP. Sounds as if you have the dreaded light tunnel collapse common to all LG DLP TV's. Inside the light engine there is a square tube made up of four mirrors. These mirrors deform and crack with the heat of the lamp. They fall down over the light aperture and cause a shadow of varying degrees. It is fixable now at a realistic price ( used to have to replace engine) as LG have made the parts available. It would take a competent tech around three hours to complete or if you are technically minded you could do it yourself. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Don't recommend replacing the light tunnel if you never had any experience with DLP optical systems. you need to pay careful attention to the way you remove any screws or you will be forced disassembling the engine multiple time to get the alignment correctly.

This is likely a bad light engine, or so I'm told by the LG electronics. The cost of the part can be as much as you paid for the set itself. Call customer service and let them know of your problem and then ask to escalate the issue. LG electronics, although not admitting fault, tried to find a service rep but eventually bought back my set at a pro-rated amount. Overall, I was very satisfied with their support. Best advice I can give you is to not buy a rear projection set again, LCD or DLP. Lamps are expensive and design is unreliable. LCD flat screen is your best option, in my opinion.
