    A blue haze has covered a 1/3 of the screen.

    Is it worth the new bulb, found on line for $115 @ Bluestar international

    I called Sony. They wanted to send out "their" technician to "diagnose" the problem. It was going to set me back $100.00 plus tax (conveniently billed to my credit card) just to get a tech into my house to tell me my optical block is bad. Probably an $800.00 fix. No a new lamp won't fix the problem. I'm ridin this horse til it dies then I'm getting a new TV. Not a Sony.

The optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support and have your model and serial numbers handy. Sony sometimes warranties these even after the 1yr factory warranty.
