Your set uses red, blue, and green lcd panels to produce your colors. The lamp provides the illumination. What has happened is the blue lcd panel has been damaged in the area you are seeing the yellow. The fix for this is to have the optical block (also known as the engine) replaced. This is a very expensive part,... you may want to move on to a flat panel tv.

It is called a yellow blob. It is a defect with the television. I kept mine under warranty and Sony replaced it, no charge.

not sure which model you have but sounds like the blue polarizer has overheated over time. when you put the new lamp in I would think that the extra light you now have is highlighting the problem more plainly.
If this is the case then a new polarizer would be needed

Yellow spot in middle of screen


Hi there,
We have the same exact problem with the same TV. We've only replaced the bulb once about a year ago. Don't know if it had anything to do with the fact that we now have a large yellow circle in the middle of our screen, which is about 7" round.
We only noticed the yellow mark about 4 months ago.
Hopefully someone will have a solution for us that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Paid $2100 for this set and are a little disappointed.

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.
please feel free to post a more in-depth description or any changes

I have a panasonic pt l500u, just started getting large yellow spot in middle of screen- looks like a giant finger print. Bulb was replaced less than two months ago.


Hi:

The problem here is the one of the miniature LCD screens in the unit is faulty, in this case its the blue one. There are three of them inside the unit RED<GRN<BLUE. The blue seems to be failing in your unit, for instance if you mix red and green you get yellow. Have a local shop service the unit and clean and refocus the unit back to factory spec's..

This is probably the polarizing filter. It will need to be replaced. It should not cost very much to fix.

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.
