Sony 55 inch

I have a sony 55 inch. It is about 3.5 years old. My problem is ( as your looking at the t.v) the lower right hand corner is turning blue. It is spreading like if you were to drop some die into some water. Any solutions?

    I have the same problem but its 60 Inch KDF-60XS955.The solution is simple and is a great relief from what I read on Sony Website.

    Sony are owning this problem and they will pay for all costs and Labor, if reported before year end of 2008.

    So, get on to a telehone and call Sony.Here is all the info you need.

You have a defective light engine the problem will spread untill it covers the whole screen. The only thing you can do is have the optical engine changed in this tv. This is a major repair.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

WHITE AREA OVER LOWER RIGHT CORNER OF SCREEN.


Sounds like you have burn in. A condition from watching a channel a lot that has a non-moving picture, like ESPNHD usually does. It's kind of the same condition old console style video games would burn the score into the screen.
