Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV

Lite blue cloud and blue spots

The LCD WEGA at the ARFF station that I work at started getting a small blue cloud on the left side of the screen. As time went on the cloud got bigger and tiny blue spots appeared all over the screen. I from American Samoa and I don't thank we have a repair man who is capable of repairing LCD and Plasma. If anyone has any suggestion please reply, thanks.

    I also have a 3 year old KDF55XS955 with a light blue cloud approx 12-14 inches in diameter just to the left of center. Also brighter blue spot about 4 inches in diameter in lower left corner. This seems to fade a little after 4-6 hours of use, but returns when tv is turned on again. The blue cloud is faint but makes faces and some objects grayish blue and not visible on white screens.

    My KDF-55XS955 has a purple blob haze starting in the lower left corner of the screen that is causing the picture to be deteriorated. It is getting bigger and I am very unhappy about this.

It might be just dust somewhere in the light path to the LCD panels or on them. The only other thing that comes to mind is the light engine itself and that is no easy task to replace. The part number for it is A-1084-666-A and can run close to 1000.00 for the part. Can you post a picture of the issue so I can look at it?

Sony isn't calling it a recall, but they are offering a no-cost fix

My Sony Grand Wega LCD TV currently has a large blue spot on the left side of the screen when powered on. I have changed the lamp, but this did not solve the problem. Could this be caused by bad component...


Hi,
I'm afraid, it is problem of optics unit block (light engine), there are 3 LCDs red-green-blue for color picture formation and blue LCD sounds bad, please call local TV tech for fix.
Thanks.
