Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I recently got home from festival and powered on my TV only to find that the picture was all white(ish). When I say "ish" it's because it was white but with some light blue/grey shades, kinda like a negative picture but with no dark colors. I have checked that the issue is not with the input as I get it from my PC and my PS3 aswell.. When I change input the screen used to go all black, now its light grey, almost white.

Take a look for bad capacitors, but it's much more likely that there's a cold solder joint somewhere.
I'd start with the power supply circuit (be careful, discharge all large caps first) and just retouchup all the solder connections on the larger components and cables (ie, stay away from the tiny surface mount stuff)
Of course I am assuming here that you know how to solder in the first place.
If you don't you will probably have to take the unit in for repair.

When I turn the TV on, the green power light comes on, then it turns red and finally begins to flash. There is no picture at all. I can get into the service codes via holding Volume down and input while clicking main power and get the "K" indication and can get menus with VOl up and Channel down. This should confirm backlight and power supply. Could there be a synch error?

No picture on a DLP when you can see the lamp is working is ALWAYS the DLP chip.

The picture on the screen is flickering white. It happens on all inputs. I called support and they said the light engine was going and the part was L1798-60003. This part is anywhere from $900-2600. I did find a light engine w/Color wheel Part 00.L6101G001 for $330. Would that be enough or is the whole engine assembly needed?
