    there should be a thin piece of glass between the bulb and the colour wheel. You have to view this from behind the set to see it. If that has shattered then you could be looking a future problems very soon.

    Hi,

    To the best of my knowledge the glass between the bulb assembly and the colour wheel housing is expected to have a thin crack in it. It is part of the design. It has been mentioned on other SP50 related posts over the years. I definitely have it and it makes no difference to the picture quality.
