Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration

I had had this TV for about 11 months when a yellow spot about 10" in diameter apeared along with a diagonal line to the middle of the bottom of the screen and up to the middle. The yellow lines went away after a few days but the spot remains. The discoloration mostly shows up on white or light colored pictures. Is there anything I can do to fix or help make this problem less noticable. My tv sony wega 50" has a rainbow colors spot about 5" diameter in the top and than i bought a new replacement lamp but still the same as it was...what do you recommended me to do???

It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

I replaced the main lamp 6 months ago. Now I have blue on the right, yellow in the middle and normal color on the left. I also have a ghost image of tree branches on the whole screen.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine.

Large yellow spot in center of tv screen


Sorry, but there is no cheap method of repair for this unless it is in warranty.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty.

Good luck.....

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


I would suggest to try to get this TV fix while still under warranty. Normally the manufacturers give one year.
In regards to the discoloration, there is not much you do but to let the Sony authorized repair center knows about it so they can fix it. Ask them if their work is guarantee as well for how long.
Good Luck.

I would first check and see if any software updates are out on this set, you can call Hitachi, if not that then it could be the engine assemble having problems.
