Well, being as you bought it in 2005, it may be on it's last legs.

The reason of the yellow background color in your sony LCD is AHH lcds and dead pixels.
At this time, AFAIK, Art is right, you are looking at a very large repair cost because Sony does not supply the individual parts to repair the optical block. Your blue panel is bad, perhaps a bad filter or dichoic mirror also.
The dealer cost on the optical block is about $900. They show a list price of $20 more. This is the kind of foolishness that many of the manufacturers are trying. I just checked the price of a horizontal output transistor for a 27" Samsung and the cost was over $27. Typical parts of this type are
under $10. Sony seems to have started to respond to the bitching, as they are surveying the "no fixes" due to excessive parts cost to see if they want to make some changes. Some of their parts have been coming in at more reasonable prices lately.
The cost of the optical block itself is not outrageous. What is silly is not supplying the parts to field repair it. Many of us have worked on LCD projectors for years and replaced lots of blue panels. They are the most likey to fail. If they can supply the whole assembly for $900, the panels should be under about $200. More labor would be required, but the repair cost could be easily a third of replacing the whole optical unit.
Like Art said, get a sony ASC to give you an estimate. Then speak to sony customer relations and see if they will provide some accomodation.
