Question about Sony Televison & Video
The optical engine - the set of lenses and prisms that merge the image from the 3 lcd's and project it on the screen no longer works correctly - the lenses are out of focus.
The only thing you can do is to take the engine out and try to realign the lenses. If the lenses are deformed or you can't push them back into place then the engine is dead, and the tv with it - it will cost you more than $800 to replace them.

Problem is likely a defective a defective LCD display. A faulty light engine and a defective video controller board may cause similar problems.
If problem is the light engine or the LCD panel, then the TV is usually considered beyond repair.
This is a repair that will in any case result expensive, requiring long hours testing and parts that are not cheap. The only way you can have this repaired at an affordable cost is by calling Sony and having the TV repaired at manufacturer low price.
