Dark band on left side, Samsung HL-R5668W

I have a DLP-TV Samsung HL=R5668W that has a dark band, about 6 inches, wide on the left side of the screen. It looks the same before and after I replaced the projection bulb. The band is the same width top to bottom along the very left edge of the screen. It seems to get darker over time. I first noticed it 6 to 9 months ago.

The reflecting mirror is likely loose and falling down inside the light reflecting tube. you should have seen the band getting darker and larger,
the small mirror is in front of the lamp and bends the light,
remove the lamp and look down the tube (light path)

We have a dark area on the left side of the screen about one inch wide from the top of the screen to the bottom. What could be causing gthis


Have you moved the unit recently? If so you may have dislodged the projection unit and have something blocking the left side. Another possiblility would be a bad video card which is not turning on soon enough during the scan. You also may want to check the display format to make sure it is in the proper format for the signal you want to display. Let me know how this works out.

Dark picture on lg dlp tv


Did you use a generic replacement? Many TVs have a dark picture after replacing the original lamp with a generic. The other issue I've encountered are TVs that have been exposed to cigarette smoke will develop a dark, discolored picture over a relatively short time.
