Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV
My tv has a blue cloudy color around the edges of the screen mainly on the right side and somewhat on the top and bottom. thhe size and shape seem to change day to day. is it something that can be fixed at a low cost or is it junk. the tv is about three year old.
You are going to need an optical assy (A-1084-658-A) and it runs about $1257.50
