    Hi there!

    I just replaced the bulb (after ~ 2100 hrs) in my somewhat aged Sharp XV-Z1E. Light had diminished and the lamp reflector looked quite bad ;)

    Now the light is much better and my nerves aren't that stressed anymore.

    BUT: There is quite a large dark area on the blue color channel that drives me crazy. Since it's only on blue, I don't suspect the LCD panel. Could some blue color filter have become darkened or burned? :confused:

    AND: I tried to open the proj but didn't manage beyond the back end lifting a little. Does anyone know how to open that critter or have access to Sharp repair documents? :lease:

    Otherwise I will have to :suicide: for investing into the replace lamp.
    Thx a lot :hiya:

    I think there are 3 LCD panels, so it's possible that the blue one or the polariser for it might be damaged. I don't know much about LCDs, so maybe someone who does can expand upon that a bit more.

    Thx for the quick reply, Gary!

    3 panels sounds reasonable to me. I hope it's not completely :zonked: in that area.

    If i just could crack that thing open. :mad:


    (btw. just saw your ht pics and instantly recognized the familiar denon face *g*. i have a avc-3800)

    I think the individual panels or polarisers can be replaced, but it's probably not cheap.

    I like the little Denon, seems to do a reasonable job. Would like to hear how the 3805 sounds with it's self calibrating do-da though. :)

    Most likely is blue polariser filter in front of blue LCD which will be
    uv damaged (burned), on a white screen it should show like a yellow
    patch, unlikely that the panel is damaged
