It sounds like you have the typical sony burn lcd issue. You can confirm this if the background of the "stain" is the absence of blue, if so read on.

There are basically 2 manufactures of lcds for projectors and rear sets, sony and epson. Sony will bleed, epsons will shift or ghost images. The problem with sonys is due to heat and it physically burns the liquid in the lcd. If you think about it, it makes sence that it happens on the blue only. Blue is the hottest wavelength of light, and on top of it, the UHP lamps as they get used up, will shift twords the blue specturm, so you allways have to make sure that the vents are clean, fans are working and that the lamp is replaced at normal suggested times.

Unfortunatly there is no fix for this one other than to replace the entire optics block which is more expensive than a brand new set.

When i go to pc mode on my aquos 42 inch the background and screen is blue not the blue screen of death the set is 2 yrs old


That sounds like a resolution problem. If you have a PC attached to the TV, unplug the monitor cable, and plug a computer monitor to the computer. Change the resolution down to 1024x768, then try plugging back into the TV

My sanyo 42 inch plasma has a blue screen, i can hear the sound on the tv but screen remains blue. can u help please


Be sure your channel settings are correct and that you have proper orientation of the hook up cables. See if your remote has a video-mute if so turn it off...a video-mute will produce a blue or black screen. To be sure its not the tuner that's enter the menu screen if you can see the menu then the tuner is ok this means the down-stream video is functioning. Be sure to have all your input devices set to the correct output ports. If all check good and still blue screen then the logic section is not processing video codecs and needs servicing.

Blue screen on my haier 37 inch tv


my tv just went to a blue screen one day. I can turn it on and then it will just remain on the blue screen. Any button (except the volume) I push on the remote comes up on the screen "no signal". What would you suggest? I have been reading about replacing a fuse or board? Most of those are on the 42 inch version---I have teh 37 inch version.

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.
