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.

Light Blue Haze close to the center of the screen

The Optical Engine needs to be replaced. You would need to contact LG / Zenith to get a Service Facility out to confirm the problem and see if they would be willing to help you with the cost. If they do not help with the cost, it will probably not be worth investing the money into it.
I hope this helps,

Faint Yellow and/or Blue Tint on the Ice during hockey games ( or similar color situations)

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.

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.
