Hello. My issue is found on the almost left bottom portion of the screen.There is a slight color distortion at an individual spot, about a foot in diameter and primarily is noticeable when showing a green background ( like golf ). It is localized and seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts as to cure or what the problem is? The tv has been excellent so far other than this. Firedog
I have this same problem. This is caused by a defective optical block. Sony currently has extended coverage on optical block replacements, but not for the symptoms our tv's display. After several phone calls, I was told they would cover replacement of my optical block (a $1000 part by the way), but I would have to drive it to another state to one of their certified service centers. Once it was there, they suddenly decided to NOT cover the block as promised to me on the phone, and conveniently told me although my block was defective, that it wasn't the right kind of defective. So I was left with wasted time, miles, gas, and a diagnostic charge for an unfixed TV. visit http://splinke.googlepages.com/sonyrearprojectionlcdtv-opticalblock for more help.
