Sounds like Calibration is needed on the projection internals. Your TV uses a rear-projection system and the problem is either in the imaging LCD Unit or the light filter. I see in a previous thread you have changed the bulb. You can invest in a voltage regulator to keep the hardware in factory condition.
Also you can burn a DVD of a stuck pixel remedy video and run it on the screen with full brightness and full contrast. This is used for plasma burns and stuck pixels on conventional Flat panel TVs but can repair color issues with projection systems. This therapy is focused on the imaging unit between the projector and the main drop of your tv.

Hi Druaga

This is a Blue LCD Polarizer that will have to be replaced if the spot shows yellow.

You will find that this will only get worse as time goes by.

Possible dust in light engine? What ever you do, don't blow it out with the set on or hot. This easily equals instant death to bulb.

Image on screen


Yes... The LCD screen is faulty and will have to be replaced in order to remove the "pile of straw" , You can do this by removing the screws below the battery with a t7 torx screwdriver , then you will be able to remove the front of the phone and ther you will see the LCD screen and is simple to replace, Hope i helped :~)
