Mitsubishi DLP "edge bleeding"/uneven brightness
I'm not sure if that's the right term for what I'm seeing going on with my TV, but let me try to explain what it is. Basically, the blacks are completely "uneven" on dark scenes. Mostly around the edges, it is much brighter than in the middle. It's not even on all 4 sides. Just like a dull faded grey color rather than black like the rest of the screen. And even during bright scenes, I can sometimes notice uneven brightness.
Basically I just don't have the money to buy something new at this time, so I'm gonna go ahead and replace the DLP chip since I'm having the white dots issue, and didn't know if that could also solve the edge bleeding issue, or if there's something else I can do while I already have the TV opened up.
I'd go ahead and put up a pic of the edge bleeding, but I assume it's pretty easy to imagine what I'm talking about and/or it's probably a common issue, and I actually have to replace the lamp as well so I can't even boot the damn thing up at the moment.
Oh, it's a WD-65C9, 2009 model I believe, if it makes a difference.
I appreciate any responses or advice.
