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.

Re: lite blue cloud and blue spots

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

Blue hue on left side of screen

if it looks like a cloud, then its probably the optical block. The heart of the LCD. We had ours replaced twice (defective) under warranty.

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...

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.

Sony WEGA 42" LCD TV

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!
