From the information you have provided I expect the problem is being caused by a defective optical block, also called a light engine. Click here to view the pricing of the part. I cannot reccomend this as a part a consumer should replace due to the difficulty. Most TV repair shops will charge about $1000 t replace the light engine and make the needed adjustments.

 

Should you require further clarification, never hesitate to ask. It would be my pleasure to clarify my answer to your question. If after reviewing the above information, you have additional questions, I will be glad to answer them. My goal is your 100% satisfaction with all questions I answer.

Could it be anything else?
TV Technician: Edward, Technician replied 7 years ago

No, sorry to say the optical block is causing the problem. This is a very common part to fail on the DLP TV sets. Click here to see what other customers are saying. . I sure wish I had better news for you. Many manifactures are no longer producing DLP TV sets due to the problems with the light engines.
