Sony KDF-55W655 LCD TV with screen problem

I have an area in the bottom rt hand corner of my screen that looks like a RED CRAYON was scribbled on it. When the screen is supposed to be white or near white it is very visible. I was told that the LCD is damaged in that area, which I believe since it appears that the screen is only not working there. It's about 8" wide by 16" high, but is random, not a complete block. I was wondering if there is an easy fix to this problem such as changing some part and not the whole screen.

Thanks

Your optical block ( light engine) is bad. Heat generated by the lamp circuit with its poorly designed ventilation system, cause the LCD panels inside the light engine to fail. They are the size of a postage stamp. There are 3 LCDs, for red, blue, and green. The heat causes them to warp and de-laminate.

Sony has systematically downed played the scope of this issue. It appears however that virtually every LCD projector they make can develop damage in the light engine which is extremely expensive to fix.

I suggest contacting Sony and your state's attorney general's office of consumer complaints asking for action on this.

My sony lcdtv kdf-55wf655 has a blue line across the bottom of the screen and a patch of blue in the lower right hand corner


Your screen has probably been bumped by something.
The line may be possible to be fixed by an engineer reseating the cables internally, but the patchy area is a pressure fault and cannot be fixed without replacing the complete screen.
You can get these patches on things like laptop screens too, where somebody has pressed a finger on them a bit to hard.

Blue section (corner) and blue dots


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.

Patch of purple "scribble" lines on corner of screen


Sounds like the same problem that I just started having. Although my scribble lines are yellow. Personally I'm thinking that one of the three LCD panels has cracked internally and will need to be replaced.

Purple scribbly lines it left hand corner of tv screen


if the lines on your screen looks anything like the image below, you do have a problem with the lcd, problem is you need to replace what is called the light engin. unfortunatly the price of this part is just about as much as a new replacement tv. Get a sceond opinion fron a sony service center near you, as i cannot see your picute. good luck
