Panasonic rear projection tv has a yellow tint, and it just turned off by itself while the indicator light flashed yellow. What's wrong with it.

The yellow tint can be caused by a faulty lens where the filters are burnt out. Normally this happens when the blue filter burns you get a yellow picture on the screen.

Unfortunately, this can be expensive to repair.

Yellow tint

Hello. Here's the visual key to remember about projectors--LCD panels show their colors like this: RED lcd panel displays cyan onscreen(baby blue); GREEN lcd displays purple; BLUE lcd displays yellow. ( You now know where the displayed dust is!) The problem is most likely a burned blue lcd or polarizer filter in front of the blue lcd panel. This occurs when the dust filter isn't cleaned regularly or properly and heat builds up--yes, enough to "cook" the lcd panel or actually cause a burn to develop on the polarizer. The polarizer is just like a lens in a pair of good sunglasses. It is a small, extremely thin, pane of glass with polarizer material glued onto one side. When burned, it causes a "shadow" effect--that enhances the display of that particular color--in this case, yellow.--Hope I was of assistance!---Rick

Screen is yellow tint regardless of color adjustments we make. there is a red circle when the screen is black

A discolored Blob or blotchy pattern usually in the center of the screen. the problem is becoming all too common with Hitachi projection sets. What happens is that one of the lenses in the optical block (or light engine) starts to burn (in thi scase the blue one) or discolor due to overheating because of a blocked air filter causing poor air (cooling) circulation. Nothing can be done when the damage is too far-gone except to replace the light engine-at a cost that makes it not worth repair. if the damage is minimal than to reduce further damage, the air filter should be replaced. The Light engine needs to be removed in order to replace the air filter. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Dell 2400 MP DPL Projector projects a yellow tinted image.

Clean any external dust filters or air openings in the unit.If you don't want to remove the filters, you can simply use a vacuum cleaner hose to suction away the dust from the filter element--same effect anyway. The unit probably does indeed need a thorough cleaning.
The yellow effect is most probably a burned BLUE polarizer filter located behind the blue LCD panel. (Color key--Purple onscreen=green lcd, baby blue onscreen=red lcd, and yellow onscreen=blue lcd). That's how you can tell which lcd has dust on it! Usually, the green lcd has the most free area around it and collects the most visible dust. (large purple specs) The polarizer filters can get burned due to excessive heat (not keeping proper ventilation). Of course, it might be the blue LCD panel which is failing prematurely due to heat build-up over time. The polarizer filter isn't that expensive if it can be replaced, however, the actual lcd panel IS.---Rick

Projection has yellow tint

From your description, it sounds like a problem with the blue color. Green LCD=purple onscreen, Red=cyan(baby blue) onscreen, Blue LCD=yellow onscreen. It could be a lot of dust on the blue lcd panel, or worse, might be a burned polarizer filter behind the lcd panel due to excessive heat. If you can focus on the yellow and its tons of yellow specs, its dust. A burned filter however, must be replaced. A technician trained in projectors will have to do it. The filter material is glued to a thin glass panel and is replaced as a single filter. It's a very involved repair.

Greenish tint

Not sure if this is the solution, but I believe the color polarizer filters have been burned. I have a yellow haze circle on mine and I'm pretty sure that's the problem. In my case the blue filter is burned, leaving the red and green stronger yeilding a yellow blur.

Yellow circle

There are a couple of things that this could be caused from.. Its hard to say without actually looking at the set, but they are as follows.

The lamp is what you heard pop, they are under extreem pressure when on, and when they get to the end of there life, they will expolde if not changed in time.

The circle can be caused by 3 things.

1 : when the lamp exploded, it knocked the internal mirrors and lenses and or burned them due to high heat and brightness of the explosion.

2 : The polarizing filters that are infront of the lcd could have also gotton burned.

3 : The lcds could have also been burned.

If the haze happened right after the pop, I would expect that you bumped one of the lense or mirrors in the optics out of whack or even cracked the glass. If the haze has been present prior to the pop, then your lcds or filters are shot.

If there is a yellow circle in the center of the image, and it is an LCD projector, then it is more than likely that the blue polarizing filter is burnt-out. I don't know where you can get replacements - I would like to get one myself for an aging Sanyo PLC-5605B.
