Welcome! We are now connected together on this convenient website. I am an experienced electronics field technician and your satisfaction is my top priority.

This is going to be a failing Color Wheel. Quite common on all DLP tv's. If you want to buy the part and DIY it's about $130, but it's a failure complex procedure to install, no written instructions, maybe some videos on youtube. If you are unable or unwilling to perform any of these procedures then a repair shop should be consulted, which I can help with also.

How does a "failing" color wheel cause color bleeding?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 1 year ago.

The color wheel spins at a very high speed to synchronizes with the picture so the correct colors appear on the screen. When the wheel wears out (it is a moving part), then the colors don't show up correctly.
