Took the TV to the shop...there I learned that the obtical engine assambly has been a pain on this type of TV. The repairer suggested on calling the company and to compliant about it, since there seems to be a known problem with that assambly. The company will send the part ($900.00 cost) to the shop and all I have to pay is for the remove and instalation of the assambly.

You can purchase the lamp yourself and replace it yourself. The lamp is built to fail after about 3-5 years depending on how often you watch it. There are step by step directions in your user's manual. If you have lost or misplaced it, you can download it for free in PDF format on the LG website. The lamp usually are around $200.
I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.
You have the classic "blue blobs," In most of Sony's rear projection LCD's, the Optical block is bad. Manufacturer's defect. The blue panel inside of the optical block starts de-laminating (due to heat from the lamp). This is a very common problem. I have changed about 70-80 optical blocks myself over the course of about 4 years.
There is no other fix but to replace the optical block. Unfortunately, it will get worse, and will probably develop "stars," or stuck pixels, as well. You can call Sony and try to get some assistance, but the extended warranty on these sets has recently expired.
Hello rivas_gab.Before I answeryour question let me explain a little how your tv works. You TV uses is a 3LCDtv that gets its picture from a lamp, the lamp produces a white light brighterthan the sun, the light goes through a square prism and is split 3 ways, eachgoing through a small LCD chip (blue, red & green). Then it travels troughthe light engine where the final picture is produced.The blue blobthat appears on the screen might be caused by one or two lcd chips that havestarted to get burn by the intense heat emitted from the light of the lamp. If that is theproblem you’ll have to replace the entire light engine, the other option isthat you buy the prism with the lcd chips, how ever that almost impossible becausenobody that I know sells them separately.If you decide tobuy, search buy part number, NOT model number, otherwise you’ll run the risk ofgetting non compatible parts.If you’re lookinga place to purchase look for dedicated tv part distributors (my personal recommendation:Discount-Merchant ). Happyhunting.
Most definitely! The lamp is a consumer replaceable item and your owners manual should have instructions on how to complete this task. If you don't have your owners manual and more post your model number and i will get you some instructions on how to replace it!
