U had this tv for 15 years but u watches or used the tv less than 8 hours everydays?Yes,than this tv set have alot of life left in it like another 5-7 years more.Yes,if the repair cost is around $500 or less.Because u will not get that kind of screen "61 size for $500 dollars.
Depending on the model number even if the set is now out of warranty--you may have some recourse with Sony. It sounds like you have a LCD rear projection---the pattern in the middle of the screen and a blue discoloration suggest a BAD OPTICAL LIGHT ENGINE! It is a very expensive part and labor intensive to replace--Contact Sony with your model number---they were offering free replacement including labor on a lot of these sets well past the warranty period.
I am from your description almost certain it is a bad optical engine.
I know I am not giving you good news but this is common on these sets--the engine has a series of lens and the heat from the lamp causes them to be damaged inside.
I do this here for free so if this has helped you at all take a minute and give me a vote here.
LOOK FOR MAIN FILTER CAPACITOR 270MICROFARAD 300V OR 400V. IT IS THE CAUSE OF THE BURNT OF FUSE. SEE TO IT THAT IS BULGING AT THE TOP OR ANY PART OF IT. CHANGE IT AND PUT THE ORIGINAL FUSE AND THE POWER IS BACK AGAIN.CHECK ALSO FOR HORIZONTAL OUTPUT TRANSISTOR NEAR THE FLYBACK IF IT SHORT.GOD BLESS YOU
