Its not about the wattage of the bulb. Its about getting exactly the same replacement bulb. The question is did you replace the bulb that is exactly same as the replaced one?

The dark spot is caused by the deformation of the lenses due to the heat of the bulb - This is a very bad news, the lenses when they get deformed they can't be repaired and replacing the entire optical engine will cost almost as much as a new tv.
Verify immediately the status of the lenses and find out what is wrong in there - check the ventilation, the bulb (yes, the power of the bulb is critical, if it's higher than what was in the tv initially no wonder that it heats the lenses) and the fitting of the entire optical assembly: bulb, DMD chip, the color wheel and the optical engine.

Most likely you also have a bad Optical Block assembly. Do to the cost of the part, I would not invest the money to replace it. The Lamp failing would not cause this to happen.

My Samsung 50'' DLP has a few dark spots on it, as well as a dark streak on the screan...what are they? I have already replaced the bulb once after two years.


It is unlikely the DLP TI chip is bad--it would just be a few small spots. There are port holes on each side of the set where you should be able to see if anything is awry--shine a flashlight in one side and look from the other. If you have replaced the lamp, then you should be familiar with the insides although how long ago that was depends on the model HLM HLN HLP HLS(my first) HLT(improvement with LED lamp, yeah) Ax50 (newer). Best luck, -Ken

This not a DLP set and does not have a bulb that the customer can replace.
It may need a firmware upgrade if avaiable.

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The HD-ila sets accumulate a lot of dust in the light engine. The worst offender is the little fold mirror just under the lens. I take my set apart about every 8 months or so to clean all the dust from the light tunnel and all lenses, mirrors, diffusers etc. The picture really regains it's pop when this is done. Unless you are a skilled technician though, I would recommend against attemptimg this procedure as you need to disconnect the individual color lcds. Check with a local service center to get it properly cleaned.
