    Check out the class action lawsuits for defective Sony TV. Many models over the past 8 years with the same problem. Do some google search about your model and other similar Sony models with the blue spot and blue smudges on the left side of the screen and at the bottom. Sony is giving free TV's and/or greatly reduced prices for a new model. But hurry as many of the classa ction lawsuits have already expired.

Thin vertical blue ink bleed line from bottom of Malaprop screen - Fades over time


Hello,

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

We have a big yellow spot that covers half the screen on our Sony KDF42WE655 TV. We just replaced our lamp on the weekend, thinking that was the problems. Can this be fixed?


Not sure if this is your problem but if your TV was exposed to a magnet it can really mess up the screen. I had one make a green spot on the side of the picture and it has faded a little but for the most part its still there and it happened about 1 year ago.
I have not taken it in to be looked at to see if there was any thing that can be done
Good luck .
I hope this helped with at least part of your problem.

Problem w/blue "bleed" on LCD TV screen


Sony has acknowledged this problem as being a defect in the optical block and has extended the warranty replacement on this part till december 2008. I have the kdf50we655 and had the same problem. It was repaired for free, but would have cost me about $1500.
