Question about Sony VPL PX30 Multimedia Projector
Hi, I have yellow large spot in the middle of the picture. will my projector be expensive to fix ? james
I would suggest to try to get this TV fix while still under warranty. Normally the manufacturers give one year.
In regards to the discoloration, there is not much you do but to let the Sony authorized repair center knows about it so they can fix it. Ask them if their work is guarantee as well for how long.

Sorry, but there is no cheap method of repair for this unless it is in warranty.
This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.
This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.
Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.
This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty.

SOURCE: yellow spot
Sounds like the optical block (the projector part of TV is failing) The block cannot be repaired it has to be replaced. It can easily cost several hundred dollars to fix. Sony did extend the warranty on some models, you can try going on their website to see if your model is covered or not. good luck!

Your set uses red, blue, and green lcd panels to produce your colors. The lamp provides the illumination. What has happened is the blue lcd panel has been damaged in the area you are seeing the yellow. The fix for this is to have the optical block (also known as the engine) replaced. This is a very expensive part,... you may want to move on to a flat panel tv.
