Blue Lines streaking in from left side of 70 inch Sony HD TV
I have a Sony Grand WEGA KDF-70XBR950 70 in. HD television. It has worked perfectly for three years. Now I am getting the blue lines that are shooting across from the left side of the screen.
It is NOT ghosting or convergence. It is small thin blue lines that shoot across the screen from 1/4 to 1/2 of the screen.
Everywhere a blue line comes into the picture items that are supposed to appear white are yellow.
Has anyone seen this before and do you have any idea of what might be causing it?? Or, how much it will cost to repair?
Any assistance would be appreciated. I have Verizon FiOS TV service. It is not their service, because I get the same problem even when I play a DVD.

You have a shorted blue picure tube G1 to cathode.
The reason for the vertical lines (they, are called vertical retrace), is that the blue tube is shorted . This means that the blue tube running fully open overcoming all other colors. This correct way to troubleshoot this is to have a qualified Master Technician isolate each gun and remove the blue crt board and if the other two guns function normally, the blue gun is definitely shorted. By the way ,this repair is more like $500, but service call should only be around $125. Don't be scammed!!

Hi,If tv is between 6000-8000 hrs 2-4 yrs and havent replaced the lamp it might be time to do it so.Here's your part # XL-2100 you can find it here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sony-XL-2100U-TV-Lamp-p/sony_xl-2100u_replacement_lamp.htm here's instructions to replace it : http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/sony/XL-2100U.php Thank you and have a blessed one!
no, it is not the lamp,the DIC 2 board is bad.in this case it is best to have a sony certified technician come out to give you an estimate. the board is expensive and the lvds cables attached to it are verrrry fragile and expensive also.
You need a new projection lamp.......(XL-2100 replacement DLP
lamp)..... go to this web site to get the lamp you need for your TV
model KDF-70XBR950 70inch----
------ This web site shows you how to install it yourself. ----
http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/sony/XL-2100U.php --------- I strongly
suggest that you get a SONY manufactured replacement lamp NOT a cheaper
lamp from another manufacturer... it costs about $200.
You have a bad light engine or in Sony TV sets, it is called an Optic Unit Block Assembly. This is a very expensive part and should not be attempted to be replaced by a novice. Call an authorized Sony repair place to have this repaired. Good Luck
