1 Answer

When the picture comes on it is green and fuzzy. Was told it is the light engine that failed. trying to figure out what it is and where it is located in the tv. I have the service manual with part breakdown but nothing in there states light engine. What is the actual technical name for it? Where is located?

Dlp tv color goes fuzzy and green


Its probably unrelated to lamp, take the lamp out, try it again and look into the lens, if its still very green the projectors electronics are failing. The projector generates pictures as 3 streams of info Red Green and Blue. It looks like the projectors red and blue electronics are failing, but the green is working.

Are you sure that you have the good color wheel for the LIGHT ENGINE install in your tv. Samsung use different version of light engine who had their own color wheel.

Green power light goes on. No picture and no sound. Not even a fuzzy sound. Nothing.


While it is unusual that the power light is steady instead of blinking a trouble code, I still believe the main power supply has failed since the failure is affecting both video and audio.
Since there are now millions of individual components in the chips used in modern sets, it may just have 'hung fire.'
You might try pulling the AC plug overnight to see if a locked-up circuit will recover without power applied.

Press power button green light comes on.But no picture no sound,


I have had my WS-65511 fail like this, first at 4 years, second 2 weeks later, then 3rd time yesterday (4/14/2009). In past, the tech replaced a thermal sensor p/n 299P313010A (but Mitsubishi says that part is not for WS-65511 and that it does not have a thermal sensor - go figure). It is a white rectangle with about 30 pins in 2 rows and is soldered onto a board in the TV. List price is about $25. Might be your problem.

Have a green tint over 90% ot the center of the screen


I had the same problem with my 60V500A about a year ago. The screen got a red tint in the center and the image was fuzzy in that area. A new lamp didn't solve the problem. I did some checking and found out that the original light engine used in this model had a cooling issue that could cause the light engine to overheat and distort the LCD panels. My warranty had run out more than a year before this happened so I figured I was screwed since the light engine was so expensive. I decided to call Hitachi tech support and see if I could get a discount on the cost of a new light engine since the cooling problem was a known issue for this model TV. I calmly explained to them that I was aware of the cooling issue in the light engine and that I felt like a $4000 TV should last more than two or three years. Tech support gave me the phone number for my local authorized Hitachi service center and I gave them a call. Once the technician confirmed that it was the light engine that was the problem Hitachi sent him a replacement light engine at no cost to me. I was WAY past my warranty period so I still had to pay for the labor to replace the light engine. $300 for labor was a lot cheaper than buying a new light engine or tossing the TV and buying a new one. I have to say that Hitachi earned my respect for admitting there was a problem and doing what was needed to correct the problem more than a year after my warranty had expired.

Green screen with red and blue wavy lines


This is "NOT" meant as "expert" advice...as this is not my area...HOWEVER...I see no one has answered this yet...AND I got some good help from here a year or so ago that worked for me!

When I had a similar "green screen" problem with my SONY projection tv...the guy helped me by having me make "MINOR" adjustments to the red/blue/green etc knobs behind the panel. These were three small black plastic pieces and needed less than a 1/16 of an inch adjustment...try adjusting one at a time and giving it few seconds after each adjustment. It worked for me..at least for a while (till my wife gave it away to a friend because it was "too big"...ah! women!!! LOL)...hope this helps. (NON-expert help!)
