Question about Projection Televisions

Blue wide streaks in my 42" Sony TV model KDFE42A10.

My TV is 2 yrs. old and has been fine until now. It has a wide blue streak coming from top right corner, and a cloudy streak in the middle. I called a repairman and he said if it is the convergence circuit the cost to fix will be about $300? Does that sound right?

I have the same TV and the same problem and it's also just over 2 years old (bought it June 2006) when the problem started. Every day, I saw the blue streak cover more of the tv, now 6 months later, it has all turned to green and the entire tv has a green tint. It looks like I am watching tv in murky green water.
I am lucky that I purchased the additional warranty on the tv and finally got around to calling them. I hate to tell you this, but they told me that the optical light has gone up and they are replacing the tv.

Blue dots and streaks


Blue streaks might have been just your video connection and problem with signaling. But, blue dots is faulty light engine, aka "optical block". The engine in this could be a defective LCD array. Very expensive, a optical block is about $850. Hope it's still under warranty. You could get a rebuilt one, possibly. Need service adjustment too. Bad problem that Sony has with these kinds of sets.

Sony Grand Wega KDFE 42 10 = blue streaking


I called a repair company who said it would cost about $1100. to replace the optical block. Sony offered no help or solution and the comment was "all electronics will have problems in 3 years". We will buy a replacement after researching what we want/need.
Thanks for your input.
