Your TV uses a matrix of liquid crystal segments that may have been damaged from impact or connection failure. The only remediation I know of is replacemnt of TV

Yellowish cloud in the middle


Replacing the Optical Block will cure the problem. Due to the cost of the repair i would call Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if they could assist you in the cost of repairs. You would need to get a Authorized Service Facility out to confirm the problem and give you a estimate to in turn give to Sony. The amount they they will pay for is of course up to them but it is better than paying the entire cost yourself.
Hope this helps,

I have a bad and a good news. The bad one is your 1000$ optical engine is defective and the good one Sony will accept to fix it for free of charge. Just call an Sony authorized tech and he's gonna take care of it.
