OK everything was good until yesterday, then picture started breaking up then grey.black vertical lines and half picture then NO picture only grey/Black vertical lines at startup. (Take A Look)
Sound is fine
Reset TV, unplugged for 30 min held power button, set looks like below when powered on, lines and width changes each time, one time NOTHING, just sound, upon startup again back to lines
NO red lights, fan shuts down as normal powers off fine just all of a sudden NO PICTURE
Never had white dots so maybe no DLP issue?
Should I try changing bulb first, ballast, or is this a light engine/color wheel problem?
Maybe something loose?
I LOVE my 65" DLP and hate to scrap it, but if costs are gonna exceed $500 or so I'll have to go buy a new Samsung or Sony (regretably).
CAN ANYONE HELP? Has anyone had this problem or seen these lines?
PLEASE help me save my DLP
Thanks In Advance!
