My wife called me at the office a few minutes ago. She said when she turned on the TV, there was a popping sound (scared our cat), and now there's no blue color on the picture. I checked ShopJimmy, and they are out of stock on blue LEDs. What are my options, other than a new TV? I was hoping to hold onto this one until OLED prices came down.

There are plenty available on ebay, and elsewhere, both new and used.

Thanks to this forum I've had a HL67A750 for about six years and it's been a great TV. I started to have the issue with the white spots a couple of years ago and I had the chip replaced - no more issues. A few weeks ago it started to experience a new issue. Shortly after turning on the picture would black out (sound remained) and after several seconds it would turn itself off/back on and then all worked fine. Happened a few times. I would assume it's a component that is failing; Fry's had a good price on an LG so I decided to replace it.

If anyone is near Silicon Valley (south bay) and is interested in the TV please message me. I'd like to get $200 for it.

Thanks,
Bruce

I just did the white dot fix on my tv... thanks to the site, shopjimmy and youtube had a chance to clean some dust off the internal lenses and i think that also helped my image. thought the tv was brighter afterwards...but think i just changed one of the cinema or color temp settings... so have to go back through the image calibration stuff.

It's possible to get a black screen from a missed HDMI handshake.

Yes, understood. As this behavior is new and is accompanied by the power off/back on I believe it's most likely due to a component that would need to be replaced. In any case I've enjoyed the TV and can't complain.

I've had my HL61A750 since 2008 - it's been a great TV. I got the white dots a few months ago, and replaced the DMD chip, and all was fine again. Last week the blue LED died, and I decided I'd rather finally get the OLED of my dreams than crack open the old TV again. The new TV arrives Friday. If anyone in the Hayward, CA, area wants the old TV, for free, send me a PM. Otherwise it's off to the e-waste dropoff.

My HL67A750 seems to be getting dimmer. I replaced the DLP chip couple of years ago. I not sure I want to give up on it yet. Would it be the LED's needing to be replaced?

I wouldn't think so, unless you have them set to the highest value already. Has the set been opened and the dust cleaned off the heat sinks, the lens, the mirror, and the DLP chip?

It was set on Dynamic. I set it to Standard and put the LED to max. Looks good now. Maybe another year or two. Sure been a good set.

Several things are starting to be odd, maybe more than I can reasonably have fixed since unlike you all, I have to have a repair person come.

Maybe 80% of the time, when I turn on the TV, it's a wild color. Turn it off, back on, and 100% of the time the color is normal. Would this be a function of HDMI on TV going bad, or a cable?

TV takes a long time to come on. Sometimes I have to turn it off then back on. Yesterday the sound went really wonky and could not power the TV off (this has happened a couple times before). Unplugged TV, plugged back in, and all was well.

Am wondering if these symptoms are serious or simple, so to be prepared if a new TV is in my immediate future.

I have experienced this occasionally, the "wild" color is always either green or magenta. It seems to be a HDMI handshake issue. Changing to a different input and back would always clear the problem. Maybe you should turn on the TV last.

My first guess is that one (or both) of the power supplies is going bad, usually the electrolytic capacitors fail after many years of use. You can usually find them (the boards) on ebay, or maybe your local repair shop can replace the caps for a reasonable charge.
