Sony WEGA 42" LCD TV

There is a blue light at the bottom of the screen. It seems to be getting bigger. What should I do? Shortly after replacing the lamp in my Sony WEGA 42" LCD TV I noticed a small portion of the lower right hand corner of the screen turn bright blue. The blue area gradually became larger as time went on, and now there is a slightly grey portion near the middle of the screen. images look blue/purple at these spots. Is the replacement lamp  broken or could this be a different problem? I'd hate to spend more $$ on a brand new lamp just weeks after replacing the old one.

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!

    Check out the class action lawsuits for defective Sony TV. Many models over the past 8 years with the same problem. Do some google search about your model and other similar Sony models with the blue spot and blue smudges on the left side of the screen and at the bottom. Sony is giving free TV's and/or greatly reduced prices for a new model. But hurry as many of the class action lawsuits have already expired.

Left side of screen on sony grand wega lcd projection tv has increasingly larger blue fog


If this is the model I am thinking of, don't bother fixing it. Call up sony and they will should offer you an new sony bravia lcd tv. You can either get the free one or upgrade from the free one to a bigger one. I guess that there is some recall with the light engine and sony is giving out this offer. This happened to my grandma to her 42" grand wega. The ending result was that she got a 46" 120hz sony bravia tv for, if I remember right, $250. I hope that this helps. Good luck and happy new years!!!

Unfortunately the Optical Engine will need to be replaced to fix the problem. It is a very costly repair. Most of these Optical Blocks run around 800.00 for the part it self and labor will vary between 180.00 and 270.00.
You could try to call Sony at 1800-222-SONY
and see if they could help out with the cost.
I hope this helps,

Yes it is, however Sony has been extending the warranties on the Light Engine which is your problem. Try Sony first and if no luck then deep six it. Sorry for your loss. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance

If these are oth LCD projection have them looked at. The light engine will need to be relaced and has an extended warranty on some models for this case. Call Sony with the serial and model to verify and they can tell you in your area who is a qualified Sony servicer. Circuit City can handle these if they are covered by the light engine warranty.
