The blue LCD panel in the light engine is going bad. The only fix is to replace the light engine. This is an extremely expensive repair. However, Sony has extended the warranty on the light engine only on many of these models. Find a local Sony authorized service center and give them your model and serial number to see if yours qualifies for the warranty.

You need to take a picture of it and definitely save it. Contact a service company to have it verified that the light engine is bad with a statement of such. Then contact Sony. They are in a major law suit with consumers with bad light engines. Known failures.

Little blue dots on screen and large blue haze in upper left corn


Sounds like the light engine is going bad...that's why they stopped making these rear projection sets using LCD's. Costs almost as much as a new set! But get a second opinion before trashing it.

Blue haze and dull yellow patches on screen


The light engine in your set has gone belly up. It is a very expensive repair. Good news is that on a whole bunch of models like yours Sony has extended the waranty on the light engine. Check with a local authorized Sony service center and give them the model & serial number and you might get a free ride. If I were a betting man I'd take odds on 'you're in luck'. LOL

Blue haze consuming my sony grand wega


It is definitely a bad optical block. Sony was offering an optical block replacement under warranty until June of this year, but it has ended now. Ballpark estimate is $700 to $1000 to have the optical block replaced.
