I have a Toshiba 42HM66 DLP that we have been pretty happy with. This is a 42" rear-projection unit, for those who don't want to click the link. Several weeks ago, it has developed an annoying problem. The center of the screen has become discolored. It is mostly noticeable when watching very light-colored scenes, like watching an ice hockey game. It has gotten so bad that it mostly ruins hockey games for me. Ordinary TV viewing is not typically a problem, but white scenes are.

I originally thought that the lamp was going out. The lamp was having other issues, too. I have replaced the lamp, but the discolored area is still there. Any ideas what could be causing this and how to correct the problem?

I'm interested in seeing the answers you get because my 52-inch projector is tinged yellow or brown on the right side of the screen. It's not real bad but it is definitely there.

I am thinking it might be dust in the system somewhere.

Equipment includes a buncha stuff that I no longer have interest in detailing

Dust and dirt inside of the back side of the screen can cause that but also over time they will develop a hot spot in the center of the screen. I had a JVC LCoS display and had the exact same problem, basically the lamp is more intense towards the center and causes more wear on that portion of the screen vs the corners.
