This model tv uses a replaceable lamp that needs to be changed every 4-6 years. If you have had it 9 years and not replaced the lamp then that is what you need to do. Also if you did replace the lamp but got a cheap knock off non-original product then you need to get a real original product. Here is a direct link to get a quality lamp:
suggest the $99 version. Lamp installation instructions are in the Tv user manual:
If you think it's not the lamp please REPLY and explain why. If you are unable or unwilling to perform these operations then a repair shop should be consulted. I am here to help you. Please reply back if you need clarification on any of the above, or even if you just want to say "thank you" :-)
