Hello friend, Thank you for posting your question on Just Answer! I will be happy to help you with this problem, And possibly help you save on these Labor charges today, So please don't Accept my answer unless you are satisfied,

When you have a video problem with a DLP and it's on ALL inputs you have a bad DMD module which is connected on the engine assembly. If not on all inputs then check your signal/box. Check with manufacturer and the list below to price a DMD and also engine, if the price isn't far off you should get the engine because it will come with a DMD module on it. But you can try an old trick use a can of cold spray on the DMD board and see if any caps are leaking; the picture should have a response to the change in temperature if this board is bad, and also on the digital board. These are some part store more pictures of DMD

To be honest this is an expensive repair, until something like a kit is invented, the great news is there are companies that rebuild engines.

And try below and see how much to rebuild it.

Contact authorized center they will check serial number you may still be covered by the manufacturer and not know it.

And this one rebuilds board's very helpful company

Well Good luck friend, and if my efforts on trying to help you save on those large labor charges are appreciated, feedback and a bonus will be appreciated

 

Thanks.
