    we had a Sony repair tech come to the house, he said it is the light engine, a $650 part, $975 to fix it. We contacted Sony complaining that the TV is only 20 months old, they are paying for the part and 50% of the labor, $125 will be our cost.

    I have had the same problem for several months and am just now looking into it. It has a red band across the bottom 5" or so of the screen and a less noticeable 5" blue band across the top.

I called Sony Customer Service and they put me with Executive committee, you have to be firm, we said the light engine is the major component of the TV comparible to a picture tube, which is warranty'd for 2 years on a regular TV. They were great, we got our TV fixed in less than 2 weeks. Hope this helps
