    The area affected is the center of the screen and the bottom right corner about 8" long. When ther are faces on the middle of the screen they are white,almost like someone is shinning a light on there face.I cleaned the back and front of the television by blowing any dust that may be distorting the image.That did not work except my tv is now cleaned.Please advise me of any other solution.The tv is just over two years old with limited on time.

    I have repaired televisons before, but this is the first LCD. Could you suggest a place where I can purchase a repair book? I would be able to do this myself if I new what an LCD panel looked like.

Your unit needs the optical engine cleaned(the lcd panels).This should cost about 300 at a local tv shop

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes

Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.

I have a sony kf-42sx3oou, i have just had the lamp replaced, since replacing it a few blue spots appeared in the top right corner but today a yellow line has appeared on bottom left hand corner, could you...

This problem was probably there before, but you only noticed with the new "Brighter" bulb.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty. If out of warranty, I suggest living with it or selling it if out of warranty. Turn down the Brightness and it will not be as noticeable. I am sure you only see this with bright white backgrounds and such

Good luck.....

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects

TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.

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!

Blue Shades

There may be a failure starting on the video or matrix driver boards. This has to be verified at the service center. The fix will be done by swapping in a new board to replace the failing one(s), and re-doing the factory setups to make sure that the default colour temperature and levels are correct.

I suggest that if the set is out of warranty ask for an estimate first.
