    Same problem started with four and now about fifty! What are they and how do you fix them?

    We have the same problem and contacted Best Buy - fortunately it is still under warranty. Repairman just left and is ordering a "light engine" - not really sure what this does. When we first spoke with Best Buy, they said the screen was shot and we would either get the screen replaced or a new tv. I'll let you know if the light engine works :)

I had this same problem. It is caused by a bad or in need of cleaning "Optical Block" or "Light Engine". These repairs are expensive (on the order of $1,000 dollars or so. Also beware that SONY is repairing these for free but only certain models. I got mine repaired and the Tech that came out did not match up the repair numbers so the company now wants me to pay the grand... This will solve you problem.

One yellow, one pink, and one blue spots appeared on my tv screen.


The set if projection which model here is, has arced and now each of the three picture tubes used has a tiny permanent burn mark on its screen.

That is what you are seeing, the set uses three picture tubes with screens like the old tv sets===the coating has been burnt in each, want to prove it, remove rear cover and cover any one of the three lens and that mark on one tube will go a way.

Not fixable.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!

Blue color is now Green


Are you using a cable box / dish network etc reciever? Does it have 3 component video cables (red, green and blue cables). Often times color problems like that are a result of your cables coming loose out of the set or cable box. Make sure that they are snug and secure and in the correct spots on both the reciever and the television. Don't just assume they are, make sure to check all of the cables. I am a television repairman and even though I tell everyone this, at least once a week I have a call where this is the problem.
