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.

Have a mitsubishi XL6600u projector .....screen is yellow and have replaced bulb still yellow


Could be one of two problems. How old is the machine? If one of your LCD filters inside the machine has burned up it will show yellow. Common on SL4U. It starts with a yellow circle. If not that then most likely a bad VGA cable. If you have it hooked up that way.

Epson projector has yellow circle in middle of image, as if the lamp has caused something (lens maybe) to become yellow.


Probably had too high wattage bulb and basically, it burned the lens cover. Remove the old lens and "project" to see if the yellow circle is projected. Iif so, purchase a new lens cover.

We heard a loud pop and the tv turned off and


That sounds like the lamp bulb blew and you will need to replace it. You can find ads on this web site that sell DLP bulbs at a decent price and you can install it yourself, or you can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

Read replace lamp then afew weeks later heard pop noise and now black screen


Two things in your TV can make that popping sound. One is the bulb of course and the other is a capacitor. Have you pulled out the bulb to inspect it? My guess is that you have broken glass in the cooling fan, which is why there is a grinding sound. Most bulbs tend to contain the glass from getting everywhere as it's only the filament inside that pops creating little diamond looking pieces inside the lens. If a surge was strong enough or if the bulb was poorly manufactured, the whole unit can explode inside spraying glass everywhere.

If the bulb looks fine, the pop must've been a capacitor on one of your circuit boards resulting in no display. Since the TV still powers on, your power supply and it's fuse appear to be fine. Check the bulb first and go from there.

Yellow circle


The huge yellow circle is either your blue filter is burnt out (very common in Zenith DLP) or you LCD cube is bad. I would bet it is the blue filter. Zeniths DLPs have 3 color filters one blue (a pinkish color), one green (a grayish brown)and one red (it is red). For the bulb indicator I would check and make sure your lamp is seated to the ballast correctly. Just take it out and put it back in.
