Sony Grand Wega KDFE 42 10 = blue streaking

A blue streak appeared in the bottom left corner and goes halfway up the tv to the middle and is about 2-3 inches wide. I disconnected the dvd and reset the tv but it still shows on all stations and movies.
thanks

    I talked to a Sony rep yesterday and he thought it could be an lcd panel. I called a local repair service (suggested by Sony) who quoted me $700 for the optical block plus his fee which would be about $1100 total. He suggesed as you did that I contact Sony customer service to determine if they would help with the repair costs. They refused to do so since it is now out of warranty which was their only reply.

    Thank you very much for your quick response and your information which was very helpful and gave me a starting point.

    I have a blue streak about a quarter of the way into the screen, starting from the bottom and going north. I am so happy to hear Sony is being their usual unhelpful selves. Unbelievable! Thanks for the info on what this is.

    Blue shade is because of bad blue LCD in light-engine (optical block)
    Its costly fix, please contact Sony Service Center or local repair shop for an estimate.

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.

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.

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,

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.
