The LCD that I will eventually purchase will DEFENITELEY NOT BE A SONY!!!!!!!!!!! @#*&$%

    our grand wega has the blue cloud and the blue dots after 4 years and this is totally unacceptable but what the hell can we do about it? Sony has us by the ******....this has been getting worse for about 8 months now.

    Visit this link http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony... it describes the same problem with a fix that works. The only problem is I cant find the little black box they reffered to that controls voltage & convergence adjustment. I took my tv completely apart and I didn't see this box. There was a usb port back there in a hidden slot. Anyone know what the purpose of this is, or where to locate the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment?

Hey there Aleman500-

I had this exact same issue with mine. Started noticing the "blue cloud" on the bottom portion of the screen.

Please follow this link and the instructions listed. I opted for an "upgrade" that was offered (brand new 46" bravia lcd) but sony had also offered to fix my tv for free.

Sounds like the light engine is going bad...that's why they stopped making these rear projection sets using LCD's. Costs almost as much as a new set! But get a second opinion before trashing it.

thats a common symptom for that model which is usually related to the optical block. Very exspensive repair. Check with a sony authorized repair center as Sony has recognized the problem and offer assistance with certain models yours may be one of the ones affected.

Blue section (corner) and blue dots


This set has no internal manual adjustments for color. The Tracking or B&W balance is accessed via the service menu. I don't suggest you attempt to adjust without instrumentation. the trouble with your set is not an adjustment. Most likely the Optics are at fault. This model has had issues with filters in the optics being destroyed over time by the lamp. The blue haze will get worse and continue to grow over the whole picture. The only option is to remove the Optics (light engine) and sent it out to be rebuilt.
