I had the same problem with my sony KP-57ws500 rear projection tv and thanks to the thread I fixed it in 10 minutes. At first I thought it was a white curved line but then after a closer look it was a very light green curved line. To solve this problem all you need is a flat and phillips screwdriver. Right below your speakers on the right and left side are tabs. Pull out the tabs and remove the screw on eachside. Once that is done remove the speaker cover. The two screws at the bottom are the only screws and you just have to wiggle the facing off by pulling out and down. You will see a fiber board cover in the middle of the tv, there will most likley be twist ties holding some wires, to make it easier to work remove the ties. Now remove the screws on the fiber board and pull it off.
You should see 6 adjustments screws. on the top for is focus, do not touch those.
Below the focus adjustments are the Red, Green, and Blue. The adjustment is slight so turn the correct color slowly and don't push hard on the screw. I had to turn the green to the left to get the lines to disappear and it was only about a 1/32 of a turn. Very very slight. Good Luck.

This could be from 2 things. 1 is the optical block is going bad or 2 you got a peice of dust blown in from the cooling fan and its blocking the color filter internally. If you are capable you can take the tv apart and blow compressed air into the color block and remove the dust. Hope this helps

I found this solution from SONY's website.
The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
I hope this helps.

This indicates problems with the image engine. (Lamp does not control the colour). If the TV has not been cleaned recently, excessive dust build up internally may have overheated the image engine. If Sony will not cover it, you might want to consider a new TV.

Testimonial: "thanks, tv is only two years old and don't want to buy another one. Hope it is not the image engine."
