Question about Sony VPL-FX51 Multimedia Projector

Open Question

My sony vpl-fx51 projector shows a blue glow on the side (left and under) of the screen. on the bottom some vet blue lines. the longer the projector is on, it wil get worse. only time its not visible is when the screen is blue or white. the projector tells me to replace the lamp, but i don't think thats the problem. I also discovered that there is something loose in the projector. because when i pick it up i hear something. I sure do not hope its the prism block. its also not the cable because i tried different cables. I can also send a photo.

I also have the same problem -- the fix is to replace the optical block ( Internal lamp engine ) which is a $1,100 part. I just purchased a used projector for half the price of the part.

SOURCE: Sony LCD Projector - burned prisms

I have the same projector, but my problem is with red.

A replacement prism assembly is about $2k.

If you can get your hands on another projector for cheap, that's your only hope. You can swap out the blue lcd panel from your prism with someone else... it's a bit of mucking around, but worth it of you can.

Its your blue polarizer going bad. This happens over time due to the excessive heat generated in the projector. The main problem is that your projector has organic LCD panels that degrade over time and in turn degrades your blue polarizer. The same thing happened to my sanyo Z2. It took 5 years for it to show on my Sanyo because I only use the projector for sports and movies. not daily tv watching. In any case, it isnt worth it to spend the money ti fix it...jut put tat towrds a new projector. The latest crop of LCD projectors almost all use in-organic LCD panels that last much longer. Hope this helps.

My projector shows a blue tint to the right of the screen. I am afraid that it might be the blue LCD panel gone bad. What might the diagnosis be? Sony VPL-HS51


Does the blue tint show up as small rectangular pixel shapes when you get up close to the screen when focused properly. This would indicate a blue LCD panel fault. If it's fuzzy then possibly a blue polarizer overheating

Image is bright but there is a slight issue - on the left hand side a purple line displays vertically. Anybody knows why is this fault appeared and how could it be solved.


There is three LCD in the projector red, green and blue. If green LCD make any fault mean line or dot or dots then screen show these line or dot in purple color:
If line is very straight and sharp edges then green LCD is faulty and need to be replaced.
If line is not straight and faded edges then some thing in LCD block so your projector need service

Blue tinting appearing on the right side of screen on vpl-es1 projector


A warning in the manual was given as to be carefull when using this projector with games as some parts of the screen will not move, just like if you watch Tv on it and there is a channel logo in one corner that doesn't move! It burns the display like it would on a pc monitor if no screen saver set. This is not a problem you can fix, that is perminant damage to the lcd in the projector!! S Platt
