Upload files must be fairly small.
Resize to requirements.....something like 600x400 is max.
Read thru the helps for exact values.Upload

I'm no expert:
It looks, however like 1 of 2 things.
Either: the DLP chip itself is defective....not very likely...
or
The circuitry driving the chip has a problem.

I don't think a color wheel or lamp problem could produce such an effect.

DLP is a Pain in the XXX. Since this is an older set without even an HDMI input, I'd simply junk it out and get something newer with such inputs and full 1080 resolution.
It won't 'stay' fixed, either. The color wheel is prone to failure and the part has been thru many revisions to try to help. Lamp wiring is another problem. I'm less than clear on this, but many people replace ballast boards as a result of hi-resistance connections frying the board......
Cooling fans of which there are 3 or 4 may also clog with lint and the set'll cook.
You should be able to replace the set for 700$ in the same size plasma.

Yes, at some point it is good to cut your losses and simply junk out a money sink set.

However, if you do some reading about TVs...the current 'thin' stuff, you'll find numerous threads complaining about ALL of the LCD/LED stuff. Sony even had a few catch on FIRE. They are dodging the issue.
Just my opinion, but the most reliable sets are some of the Plasma sets. My Panasonic is great. Good black levels and mostly bright enough.

Even my lower end Panasonic has 3 HDMI inputs, 2 USB inputs, the ability to connect to my network (option) but has sacrificed some of the 'legacy' connections.
