I think the plan is to buy something new like a Sony X930E and fix the DLP as I have spare time...can't have to many TV's right? We'll find out just how handy or unhandy I am. The part is something like $190. That an an hour of time maybe longer. Sounds easy, ha ha. Thanks everyone for the encouragement. Enjoy!

It has been running great since then and it has been about two years.
Ditto on the 1st part. The # of stuck white pixels really started growing day by day and got pretty bad. I pretty quickly ordered a replacement DLP chip (DMD) from ShopJimmy which cost me $200, after some discount I had. Funny enough, I placed that order on 8/18/15. I installed it within a week of arrival.

My HL61A750 is still working fine and none of the have LEDs have failed, yet. I do have a large USB Thermaltake fan pulling air thru the casing near the exhaust of hot air from the LEDs.

Picture quality hasn't gotten any worse than before original DMD started developing stuck white pixels so the set still looks great.

Mine started doing the same thing about 2 years ago now. i bought a replacement chip and replaced it my self. It took about 1/2 hour. The only other problem I have have told my wife if it goes out Im going to buy a 80" but the thing wont die and the picture still gets people saying wow what a great picture. The chip cost about $130.

Ditto on the USB fan. Found that tip some years back. My HL67A750 has been working fine since October 2008. I also make it a point to take out the chassis and clean it every 6 months. I want this thing to last as long as possible! Been a super TV! Haven't seen any reason to upgrade or even go to 4K with this set.
