I've replaced the lamp after 2 years, 1 year into this bulb. Also, had mother board go out about 2 years ago, had repaired at $700. Most recent problem started out w/satellite picture starting to pixelate out, then to blue screen only. Antennae input still worked and DVD, the next day, both of those went to blue screen only w/light in middle, etc....
Is it possible this is a simple problem? If not, is there a market to sell the tv for parts?

Re: Blue screen only now on all inputs....
NO not simple problem. This dlp has so many problems that you have not experienced yet but you will. To repair this concern will be into the same $7-800.00 range again.
Not much of a market to sell this but can try local service shops/ or internet type places.
But let's not get too much in front of ourselves. I would call the manufacture and complain and try to get them to repair unit, tell them (they know) you know that TV is having a lot of problems and service bulletins written on this model. Here's their info:

This TV has many problems......at least three boards and many parts on each PCB..... most places charge between $750.00 to $1,200.00 to repair. So, I will let you be the judge if it is worth it. Get an estimate from an authorized service center be fore making final decision.
If you can repair yourself I will be glad to give you the info.....it takes an experience tech about 3 hours to repair.
I strongly doubt it's the lamp assy since you can actually see the blue screen. If the lamp failed, you would not see anything on the screen. This blue screen indicates to me that either the tuner is no longer decoding the signal, in improper input has been selected (ie: input 1 is selected while actual signal is on composite 1), or something of that nature. If you are getting audio then the input is selected properly but the video decoder has failed.
If your cable signal is going through a VCR or DVD, disconnect it from there and go directly to the TV (ie: bypass the VCR/DVD). If your picture comes back, there's some kind of problem with your VCR/DVD player.
If you have multiple inputs, try connecting an input signal to another input (ie: video 1, or aux from a dvd player) and see if you get a picture there. If you do get a picture, the whatever input you're currently using has malfunctioned.
