    I had Best Buy come out and look at my television, it is the optical block that needs replacement. He said it is like 1-1 1/2 hour job to do.

I just replaced the lamp on my Sony KDF-42E2000 TV. I am still getting a red horizontal line across the top two inches of my tv. What should I do to eliminate the line?

If you have a cable box hooked up try switching it to a different input. That might solve your problem, but if it doesn't then it's possible there may be a problem with the color wheel.
