Patch of purple "scribble" lines on corner of screen

A patch of what looks like purple crayon scribble lines, pixelated, has suddenly appeared on the bottom right corner of the screen, from my vpl hs10. (No crayons in the house! and it's not on the screen!) I've changed the filter, blown the dust out, cleaned the lens and cover, etc. with no change what-so-ever. It appears to be more internal. Any ideas?

    I also have this problem but the "scribbles" are yellow. This projector has been a great performer and I'd really like to fix it if possible. Any insight would be much appreciated.

I took mine apart because I have a pink blob and scribble lines coming from it. It is definately the LCD inside that is part of what they call the prism block. The bad news is that you can't buy the LCD individually, and the block assembly is $1000. I contacted Sony about this and that is the solution they gave me. Hopefully, some of you have an extended warranty, because I don't see it being worth fixing for that cost. Try looking for a junked one I guess.

Sounds like the same problem that I just started having. Although my scribble lines are yellow. Personally I'm thinking that one of the three LCD panels has cracked internally and will need to be replaced.

No picture, but still displays light

Sounds like a dead screen you'll need to get it repaired. Check if it is still in warranty.

Sony KDF-55W655 LCD TV with screen problem

Your optical block ( light engine) is bad. Heat generated by the lamp circuit with its poorly designed ventilation system, cause the LCD panels inside the light engine to fail. They are the size of a postage stamp. There are 3 LCDs, for red, blue, and green. The heat causes them to warp and de-laminate.

Sony has systematically downed played the scope of this issue. It appears however that virtually every LCD projector they make can develop damage in the light engine which is extremely expensive to fix.

I suggest contacting Sony and your state's attorney general's office of consumer complaints asking for action on this.
