Yellowish tint on JVC Rear projection TV

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 found out it was a bad light engine. The repair cost is $1,700. I'm glad it's still under warranty.

Phillips rear projection tv model number 50pp920217f the screen had kind of a yellowish tint

I would bet that it is your optical block. Often when these go out, you get a yellow or green tint to everything.

I have the Sony KDS- 60A2020 60 inch TV. Recently, my picture has appeared more yellowish. Everyone on it looks like there dark yellowish or have fairly dark (bronze) sun tans. I changed my lamp yesterday...

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.

50 in sony rear projection tv screen has yellowish or greenish tint in center 1/3 of screen

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.

Slight yellow tint to the color.

replace the coolant in the picture tubes that will restore the color and the clarity. Heres a link to the kit which has the coolant and step by step instructions.

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

Yellowish tint on all channels

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

Greenish yellowish tint on the tv

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.
