Sony wega kdf e50a10

I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Rear Projection HD-TV. Purchased in ~2006? Past several months, a thin, light blue, lightening bolt looking streak has developed along the bottom of the screen, starting on the botton right edge, stretching across the bottom. I only see it when the overall screen has a light background, like when I'm watching a golf match, however it appears to be stretching further across the bottom of the screen. Over the picture looks great, just this light blue streak across the bottom of the screen. What might be causing this? Could it be the lamp? The lamp has never been replaced?

Authorized sony repair center told me the problem was the Q Box. Ever heard of this? Part runs about 300 bucks. TV is out of warrenty as it is 2 years old. Do you think it is worth it to fight sony and get them to replace the part or just fix the TV?

Part Number is A1167541A, service rep called it a Q Box in the diag, however the web says its the b block assmy.

It most likely is the optical block that needs to be replaced. Sony knows that these tvs are having a problem with this so it is possibly covered by them depending on how new it is and whether they say that this is a known problem for this specific tv. I would first give Sony a call at 800-488-7669 to discuss this issue and see if they will fix it for free otherwise replacing the optical block yourself is the best solution and you can order the part from Sony too through that number.

Let me know if you have any further questions and I would be glad to help.

good luck with this
