There is known issues with optical blocks on these tv's. the extended warranty has already expired. There is even class action lawsuits being filed because of this widespread problem. You can either consider having the optical block replaced or purchasing a replacement tv.
Thank you and good luck,

    Normally Sony is pretty good as far as tv goes this was just a large batch of bad optical blocks. They should have made a better attempt at fixing all the bad ones. If I were you I would still call and complain(if you have the time). Samsung makes all the lcd panels that are used in lcd tv's these days so they must be doing something right.
    Thank you and good luck,

I have a 2004 sony 42 inch dlp the back of the screen is blue what is wrong with it


It may be the optical light engine---usually the whole screen will not be a uniform blue but just areas----the lamp shines into the engine and the first part it hits is the blue---some damage can happen since the lamp can burn that area with its heat---best way to look is go to a unused video input and look there.

My other computer, G4 Macbook Pro, has a screen issue. When it is turned on and in process of coming up, the screen shows large sections of odd colors such as light pink or light green or light blue. Then...


Connect an external display to the computer. If the lines and distortion shows up on the external display its the video card, which is attached to the logic board. So, the whole logic board will need to be replaced.
If the lines and distortion don't show up on the external display the issue is the LCD module, which will need to be replaced.

I just recently changed my lamp in my hitachi 50 VF 820 and the screen has a large blue spot on it. I have done it before once or twice and all went well. Did I possibly put the bulb in incorrectly or is...


No. If the set turns on and you have a picture, the lamp is installed properly. Most of the time the optical block is the issue. The lamp shines directly into it. If the picture was good before the lamp was replaced, it is possible that that replacing the lamp might have dislodged some micro dust build up internal to the optical block and it landed in a concentrated area causing the red and green lcd panels not to pass light through as bright as the blue giving you a blue spot. Unfortunately the optical blocks are not designed to be taken apart to clean. Replacing the optical blocks are expensive. Most costing in the area of $700.00 to $1200.00 for the part. It also is a major tear down to get to the optical block to replace it. Once upon a time Hitachi had a couple of recalls on their optical blocks for various models. I do not know however if this qualified.
I hope this helps,

It will cost you probably in the area of $700.00 to replace the Light Engine. I don't think it would be a good idea to repair it. DLP sets have been out of production a few years now due to high failure rates of the light engines for all makes and models and the consumer cost for the lamp.
