I picked up a very nice WD65733 off craigslist that had a bad dmd chip..

I had it apart to clean the various items of dust and took the lamp out and saw there is some sort of black fragments in there.. Is this the mercury or is it signs of wear?

Probably just dirt. That part of the lamp is not sealed, only the little tube inside the lamp, and it's only there where the Mercury is.
