Its blue LCD mounted in light engine (optical block) and requires replacement.
Before, the solution was complete light engine replacement but now Sony Service Center will replace blue LCD only to fix it to reduce your repair cost.

    I'm confused, what to do now.
    I provided you info, now its Sony Customer Support job to fix this TV because required parts are only available in Sony Parts Store.
    I'm sitting far away, suppose if I provide you required parts, who will fix it? (Total 6 parts)
    You need Sony qualified TV tech.

Your screen is bad or you have an alignment issue. Do you have a convergence feature in the menu or on the tv? Try it. If not, you need a repair. Contact the manufacturer for and authorized servicer.
