The light engine (the projector part of tv) is failing. The only way to fix it is to replace it. That will cost several hundred bucks at the least, they are not cheap.

SOURCE: Yellow spot in middle of screen

I had the same problem. The solution is to replace the light engine. I purchased mine from Tri-State Modules and replaced it myself. You can do it yourself if you are handy and careful. Most places that sell the light engines charge around a thousand dollars. Tri-State Modules can repair your own light engine or you can buy a replacement for much less (I paid $379).

Large yellow spot in center of tv screen


Sorry, but there is no cheap method of repair for this unless it is in warranty.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty.

Good luck.....

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.

This is probably the polarizing filter. It will need to be replaced. It should not cost very much to fix.

Yellow Spot dead center on screen


Any color spot is never the lamp with this type of set.
the yellow spot is caused by the optic block (Engine). Very expensive to buy.
Little over $1000 plus labour with a qualified technician.
Sometimes technician may try to clean or repair inside but most likely won't succed.
good luck.

Yellow spot


Good Day, dv28;
No, the lamp will not correct this. The TV has a bad light engine, it's very common for this TV and very expensive. Call the manufacture and try to get a concession for the part. They normally give it about 75% of the time.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


I would suggest to try to get this TV fix while still under warranty. Normally the manufacturers give one year.
In regards to the discoloration, there is not much you do but to let the Sony authorized repair center knows about it so they can fix it. Ask them if their work is guarantee as well for how long.
Good Luck.

Yellow Spot


Sorry that I have to be the one to let you know this but the light engine in your set has a spot that has developed on your lens. It is not possibile to clean this without making your picture worse. The light engine would need to be replaced in your set to fix this and the cost will not be cost effective. Part number is 3141VSN916C and I cant find it at any dealer for less than 1200 dollars.
