Re: Sony 60" DLP HDTV

you need to change the light engine.

Whats your TV MODEL?

if your TV is a DLP
Then the problem is with the projector. Its causing to blob some colors.

If your TV is a LCD rear projection.
Then your problem is with the optical block, most probably 1 of the LCD chips is stained.

Re: Samsung HL-S5065W Next Step in Troubleshooting

hi there.... Well the only thing that you haven't change is the power supply... The path is LAMP --> BALLAST --> COLOR WHEEL --> DMD --> POWER SUPPLY Honestly I dont think the DMD is the problem and the only thing left like I said before is the power supply. My opinion is, change the power supply......

Re: samsung HLR4266WX/WAA

does it look like..a "fuzzy"/ blur line? or is it more like a well shaped vertical line?

If it looks fuzzy then the problem is with the light engine system, most probably on the part where the projector goes.

If its a well shaped and sharp vertical line, then is the DMD board.

Your ballast should be receiving around 340-360 volts.

Try changing the power supply, if this doesn't work, then try changing the ballast.
