Sony Grand Wega KDF-E050A10

I have an approx 16 month old Sony Grand Wega KDF-E50A10.  We are seeing a horizontal ban of blue vertical stripes, approx 6 inches tall, along the bottom third of the screen.  They are evenly spaced, and look like this "IIIIIIIII".  They are there with and without cable and with a dvd in.  I have tried turning the tv off, no change.  Help!

Blue Vertical Lines on the screen

It means the optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support. They will sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warrany has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.

This seems to be common problem with Sony projection tv. I have the KDF-E50A10 that lasted only 2 years. It's sitting in a corner now until I figure out what to do with it. I am not going to spend another grand to repair it!! Never Sony again.

Sony Grand Wega KDF-E050A10

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.

read this if you think it's the same problem

KDF-55XS955 Blue lines

This is an optical engine problem - it needs to be replaced - it will only get worse. Sony has had problems with the optical block and is extending the warranty for this problem. (this is a LCD projection tv - there is no convergence)
