Try this, it works. I have the same set and have had the same problem for over a year until it got to where I couldn't see a picture. I call a repairman and was told the tubes are bad or going bad and would cost around $1200 to replace all three. He then did a quick fix (I looked over the shoulder) adjustment and said it could last a day, a week, a month or two years. Cost for service call and the adjustment $140. It lasted 3 months, when a telephone pole was hit by a car and knocked out the power. When the power came back on my problem was back. I did the adjustment and its back up and running. One note: make sure you turn it ever so slightly or you will turn the tv off and could damage your tv. Good Luck with it.

Picture is very blue, especially in dark scenes.


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Look around this sight the answer is explained here. you hace to take off the front speaker cover and a small panal undder it. you will find six knobs on a small panal. use these to adjust the settings fotr the power and they will remove the lines. You will need to have the tv on and I would sugest a normal size phillips head screwdriver not a power tool.
