    I have already changed the pressure lamp once and now there is a blue haze creeping up from the bottom of the screen. What is causing this and how can it be fixed?

    Has anyone ever been called back from LG. I have the same problem with my RU60SZ30. I called LG and they said the team will be back in touch with me. They have never called me yet. I fill that this is just a run around. You know they are aware of the problem, but I think they are just buying time and hoping the cosumers will just give up.

I just called LG about this issue. I was told there is a recall for this light engine & the recall team will call me in 14-21 business days. The rep I spoke with did not know whether labor is covered but it sounds like it will cover the entire repair. I spoke with Ruben at (800) 243-0000.

This is the light engine problem. i was able to get mine fixed through LG because its a known issue. this is not a bulb problem.

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Everything that is supposed to be black is showing


Hi,It sounds like a problem with the color wheel or DMD board. The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will hear ,humming,buzzing,high pitch noises ,you might also experiment color distortion ,black and white picture. This is how the DMD works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

Install new lamp, nothing comes on ,change back to old lamp still nothing


Hi,If the lamp didn't do the work it could be that the problem is with something else.If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Do you hear buzzing or high pitch sounds? If you do it could be a problem with the color wheel.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.Make sure the door cover is properly shut other wise it wont lamp light up.

Hi,If you are getting a black and white picture,color discoloration or a humming high pitch sound, it will be an issue with the color wheel.The color wheel is a rotating disc that spins at high rpm and its in charge of creating the colors on your set.Found it here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-Replacement-Color-Wheel-HLS-HLT-Series-p/samsungcolor_wheel_bp96-01579a.htm You can replace it

Just changed the lamp in my samsung 4663w. lamp light blinks a while then all three blink. sound but no picture


hi, leaves only 3 options
1. color wheel not coming up to 6000 rpm`s
2. no ballast strike to lamp
3. lamp door safety switch in wrong position when door was re-attatched.
highly unlikely but not impossible u got a defective lamp, did your old lamp still come on? if so put it back in, if it lights up new lamp is bad, my money is on the color wheel if you installed lamp door correctly, gl, video-tek

No picture or sound after replacing lamp


Possible bad color wheel...

Pull the lamp out & look inside where the lamp sends the light-

does the color wheel look defective? If so,replace it.

Or, the lamp ballast may be bad.After that,usually replace

complete engine.
