Right 2 inches on edge of screen are darker than the rest of the screen
We've got a Samsung HDTV with DLP, and I recently noticed that the right two inches on the edge of the screen are noticeably darker than the rest of the TV. We can still see the images on the TV, they are just dark.
What could be causing this? Is it something can fix?
Re: Right 2 inches on edge of screen are darker than the...
I have a 20 month old Samsung HLR5668WX/XAA that except for the left vertical 20% of the screen, the rest became very dark. I can make out the images behind it, but just barely. For the next few days, I turned off/on the set after a few minutes every time it happened and the picture came back to normal. Then eventually the problem became permanent. Thinking it was the lamp, I replaced it, but the problem still exists.
In addition, for a few months, the set has been making an intermittent grinding noise that goes away when I turn off/on the set as above. Its frequency seems to be increasing.
Does it sound like the color wheel is bad? The fan perhaps? Something much worse (crossing my fingers)? Please let me know. Thanx in advance.

the reflecting mirror is likely loose and falling down inside the light reflecting tube. you should have seen the band getting darker and larger, the small mirror is in front of the lamp and bends the light, remove the lamp and look down the tube (light path)
If all the color alignment is correct ( Convergence is right ), it sounds like you may have a problem ddeveloping in the horizontal section. You might want to seek professional help before the circuit fails and the set quits. It could be more costly if you wait to long. Good Luck
