Picture on Sony KDF-60WF655 has a yellow tint after 30 mins on

The picture on my Sony Grand Wega KDF-60WF655 has a yellow tint after being on for 30 minutes, if I turn the TV off for an extended period it goes away when I turn in back on but will return after 30 minutes. Has anyone else faced this problem and if so what did you do to resolve it. Please advise.

This TV is known for issues with the optical block(light engine) The discoloration is coming from the LCD panels in the light engine that have been damaged by the intense heat produced by the lamp. There is a class action lawsuit settlement between Sony and the New York state attorney general's office. Sony agreed to cover these problems going back 4 model years. if you had to pay for the repairs on this TV, you could expect to pay more than $1000 to replace the light engine. Call Sony customer relations at 1-800-222-SONY
and tell them you want this covered per the agreement I mentioned.
