Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blue light on bottom of screen of Grand Wega KDF-60WF655

Faint blue light on bottom 6" of screen which is heavier in the left corner. The color has been going out on the non-HD channels too. When it goes out it looks very purple, rather than just black and white. Anything I can do to fix?

Blue color flowing from side and bottom into picture


Sony tech support (no charge) said it was definitely not the lamp.
Their suggestion- By unplugging the TV for a minute then turning back on, the blue color was substantially but not toally reduced.
Perhaps there is an electrical charge building up distoring the color by having the TV in the ready mode for too long and by unplugging, the charge dissipates?
No other phone solution recommended other than calling for repairs.
