Most probably you're going to change your lamp. If you replace the lamp and doesnt solve the problem, most probably the problem will be with your ballast.

The part number is: 915P020010

//New lamp?

Try the next troubleshooting list:

//Check the background of the TV
If your TV is more than 2 years old
If you haven't changed the lamp before
If the TV is on for about 4 or 5 hours per day
Then it sounds more like the lamp

//Check for lamp symptoms
If you get a dimmer picture (Lamp symptom)
If you heard a loud popping sound (Lamp symptom)
If your TV shuts off after a couple of minutes (Lamp symptom)
So if you get any of the previous symptoms then it is most likely the lamp

//You can also take the lamp out of the TV and if you see:
Black lines or black dots around the center of the lamp
A fog stain in the front glass of the bulb
If the "glass" filament shattered...
You'll need a new bulb

//Check for other symptoms

If you hear or see any one of the following symptoms, then the lamp is not the problem:

If you hear a buzzing, humming or rapid clicking noises (Ballast symptoms)
If you hear any winding, whirling or screeching noise (Color Wheel symptoms)
If there is any vibrations in the TV (Color Wheel symptoms)
If you get poor color, under saturated or over saturated (Color Wheel symptoms)
If the picture is in black & white (Color Wheel symptoms)
If the picture is intermittently in color and black & white (Color Wheel symptoms)
If the picture is showing the wrong color like the skin tones are pink or green (Color Wheel symptoms)
If you get green vertical bars or green dots in the picture but not in the menu screen (Digital board symptom)
If you get green vertical bars or green dots in the picture and in the menu screen (DMD symptom)
If the picture freezes up (DMD Board)
If you get White or black dots all over the screen (DMD symptom)
If you get a pixilated picture (DMD Board)

I have a Hitachi 60VS810A LCD TV. The color has faded, and now there is an orange color shade on all of the channels and pictures. Also. on occasion the tv will power off by itself. Any suggestions as to what my prolem(s) may be.
