    My tv has the same problem. It is a sony LCD. It started out as a streak and now is enveloping almost half of the screen. Don't know if it can be fixed without costing a fortune, if at all. It stinks.

Most likely being your television being on something too long and now it's burnt in, you can leave a non-moving object on your T.V. too long, the channel icons are okay because of the commercials. There's really nothing you can do now.

We purchased a sony wega hd lcd projection tv. The set had a great picture until the lamp had to be replaced. The screen got progressively darker until the screen went completely dark. After the lamp...


It sounds to me like you got a fingerprint on the lamp when you installed it. The oils in your skin can cause all kinds of problems on a lamp that gets soo hot. I recommend replacing the lamp again and using a tissue or sterile glove to hadle the new bulb. Also, before replacing the lamp make sure to clean and vacuum out the light engine box and fan.

If the problem persists, then the LCD panels inside the light engine have been heat damaged. There is a class action lawsuit in New York that is trying to extend the light engine warrantee on Wega TVs. You should give Sony a call at 1-800-222-SONY for information and more assistance.

good luck!

Blue dots and streaks


Blue streaks might have been just your video connection and problem with signaling. But, blue dots is faulty light engine, aka "optical block". The engine in this could be a defective LCD array. Very expensive, a optical block is about $850. Hope it's still under warranty. You could get a rebuilt one, possibly. Need service adjustment too. Bad problem that Sony has with these kinds of sets.

Dark shadow-like vertical streaks thru LCD screen (Sharp)


Hi, I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Projection TV that has a blotted gray streak across the front of the screen. I only use a damp cloth to clean the window and that doesn't seem to help. It really shows up on light pictures and is unnoticed when the picture is a little darker. What can I do to fix this problem???

Blue streak and specks


The Optical Block is the problem. Call Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if they could help with the repairs due to the cost of the repair. I estimate it would cost 1,200.00 to 1,500.00 to get the job done.
Hope this helps,

Sony Grand Wega KDFE 42 10 = blue streaking


I called a repair company who said it would cost about $1100. to replace the optical block. Sony offered no help or solution and the comment was "all electronics will have problems in 3 years". We will buy a replacement after researching what we want/need.
Thanks for your input.

Sony grand wega 50in


Go to SonyStyle.com/support. The purple streak sounds like a bad optic block. Sony has warrantied this problem on certain models and will either fix or offer you a deal on a new tv. Check out their site for the models warrantied through Dec 2008. Yours may be one.
