This problem is caused by a defect in the optical block. It causes about 1 - 1.5" tint usually green, orange, or yellow at the top of the screen. The part is very expensive, retails around $600-800 usually. You cannot fix it without replacing the optical block. They did have an extended warranties for this particular issue because of a class action lawsuit on certain models. Call Sony to see if your model is one of the ones they extended the warranties.

The Optical Block is causing the problem. It has been a common problem and Sony may still have a recall on it. You can check it a 1800-222-sony. If it is not still covered, I would expect to spend 800.00 to 900.00 for the assembly plus 250.00 labor for a professional to replace it.
I hope this helps,

Blue tint at the bottom of the screen


Your optical block (light engine) is going bad. A very expensive part. Sony has a history of trouble with a lot of these. Sont will also sometimes warranty them for customers. Contact them with your model, serial, and date of purchase. Good luck.
