Re: blue hue on screen

You have the blue dot or star pattern on screen issue

Sony will fix it for free until December 28, 2008. I would contact Sony and they will send a repair person out to confirm and fix it.

Agoraquest has the information in the url below and the procedures to fix it.

However, it looks like you're in luck. Sony will reimburse you.

Problem with sony 60" rear projection TV

I'm afraid, it is problem of optical block unit (light engine) that produce picture by 3 lcds inbuilt, the blue lcd and its related uv filters become defective and causing this kind of blue hue on screen.
Complete optical unit block (light engine) will be replaced by qualified tech to get tv fixed, light engine is costly part so ask an estimate before sending tv in.

This blue dot and hue problem is due to bad lcd in your tv as its Sony dlp tv that has optics block, that is also called light engine, it consists of 3 lcds, filters and lamp to produce an image that projects on front screen.
In this tv, blue lcd became defective and complete light engine will be replaced to get it fixed.
As other expert talking about blue CRT (cathode ray tube) that does not exist in this tv and my fellow expert has no idea about this kind of tv, sorry for that.
Hope this info will help you, let me know if you have additional question.

Blue dots on screen plus ghosting on screen

The optical block is defective. Contact Sony support. Sometimes they will warranty these even after the 1yr warranty has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.
