Over the past few weeks I've noticed a flickering/strobing on some areas of the screen. I would post a video, but it isn't noticeable on a recording. I've done a lot of searching online and haven't found a definitive solution. I watch a lot of baseball games, and it's most noticeable when the batter is hitting. The flickering occurs along the baselines and against the backstop.
I've had the TV about 6 years now, so far the following has been replaced (main tv, used all the time):
- lamp & color wheel about 5 years ago
-processor/chip?? whatever fixed the "white dots issue", they replaced those parts.
- lamp/bulb again 14 months ago (philips bulb from amazon)
My guesses from doing some research:
-possibly could be the color wheel, even though the tv turns on fine and stays on & there's no "buzzing"
-bulb is running too hot, even though I can see the fan blowing
-bulb is starting to go, and will eventually just need to be replaced.
-or something else that i'm missing?
I'd rather not have to buy a bunch of parts without having it fix the issue...but if internet diagnosing doesn't work, I may have to pony up the $$
