2008 61" hl61a650
I have had this TV since it was new, when I purchased it in 2008. Since then I have had to replace the bulb and ballast, at the same time. This replacement was about 2 years ago, and I have had no problems until recently. I am getting frozen pixels that are constantly white, so far I am up to ten pixels, all located in the lower right corner of the display. Weird thing is that new pixels only become frozen while viewing an HDMI source, and never anything from the coaxial input after about a week, but put on the Xbox or Blu-Ray player and new pixels show up within the hour.
From what I have read it looks like it might be time to replace the DLP chip in the TV. Has anyone had any experience with this, and is it user replaceable?
I have a good understanding of electronics and experience wit replacing components (voltage regulators, resistors, diodes, caps, etc.) on PCB's, if that makes any difference.
You guys are awesome for putting together this thread, I have been a subscriber to it for a few years now.
Anyway, thanks for the help in advance!
