    I to have the blue shadow forming at the top of the screen and a bigger light blue circle in the middle of the screen. One person said they replaced the lamp and it did not fix the problem, has anybody figured out what this is and what to do? I was going to buy a lamp but I guess I will wait to see more postings.

SOURCE: Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration

It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

You have a defective optical block. Contact Sony support and have your model and serial numbers handy. Sometimes they will warratny these even after the 1yr warranty has expired.

If this is a KDSR50XBR1 or a KDSR60XBR1,
It is a bad Optical Block and you need to call Sony at 1-800-222-SONY asap to get a exstended warrenty repair. If it is not, and it is out of warrenty I would still call to see what they will do. In either case, it is a Optical Block causing the problem.
Hope this Helps,

If the picture looks like a dim swirling cloud etc it is likely the display panel (front screen unit) which is sealed and has an inert gas inside has ruptured.

It is the end of the set if this as I suspect is the case--Panel for a 1,000 dollar set will cost over 1200 dollars if even available.

Black screen keeps popping up

If a black box appears on the screen, and a small amount of the picture is visible around the border, it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. Go back into the menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
