The blue shadow is a sign of a bad light engine. this is a common problem for this model. Fixing this type of problem is quite expensive. Light engine Costs you several hundred of dollars nearly to the price of new TV set.

When did you replaced lamp in tv last time? If lamp has not been replaced in 2-3 years then replace it to fix tv problem.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual, please buy Sony original lamp from nearest Sony store for good picture in tv.
Thanks.
