I have developed a yellowish tint on both the right and left sides of my TV. It started out as minor, but it is now spreading across the middle of the screen. Some of the streaks are in strips, while others are like blobs. What can be done to fix this problem? Thanks to anyone for their help in advance.

I have a older 2006 SXRD rear projection TV. I had the same problem after the TV warmed up this yellow tint started in the corner and crawled its way down the TV. It turned out that Sony had a recall on the optic block of the TV. If you replaced the Lamp and adjusted the color this kinda sounds like the same problem. Here is a link explaining it. In this article it shows up as a green haze and blob, but in my TV it manifested as a yellow tint.
OMG. If it is a rear projection LCD then you have a bad light engine. Any good repair shop will repair for $200-250. If its an older 3 tube projection then you have contaminated coolant in one or 2 of the picture tubes. Just drain out the fluid and replace with new. Should be able to do in 15 minutes. total cost $45.
cleaning the CRT lenses and mirror will help, however with that model I would suspect that the gree and blue CRT needs the coolanr changed to get a your color and clarity back. thats a common problem with all phillips rear projection TVs
Hi, bad news guys, from your brief description you have a bad light engine, you both need to have a tech verify this but thats most likely what is causing your symptom. This is NOT a layperson repair, you`ll need a tech, BMW Rider
I have been advised that the color/light engine of the TV fails often and will typically create a green tint on this unit. I have one on order to get a replacement installed. BTW, it is not "user serviceable" and (for me) will require moving the TV to the repair shop for the change-out.
