Bluing at bottom of picture.

I have a Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42 in. Rear Projection HDTV, 4 years old and i noticed a blue shade at the bottom corner a few weeks ago. Now the entire left corner is totally blue and it is slowly creeping across the screen, the entire bottom has a blue tint. Can this be fixed? What is the problem? Is the repair cost worth it should I just buy a new TV??

This TV is an LCD projection system - Magnets have no effect - CRTs use magnets to aim the electron beam that lights up the screen, but LCD projection uses just lenses and mirrors.. My TV just started doing the same thing this week (same TV, same age).

Take away if there was any speaker near the tv Unit. you need to demagnetize the screen using a magnet or demagnetizer.

Blue color flowing from side and bottom into picture

Sony tech support (no charge) said it was definitely not the lamp.
Their suggestion- By unplugging the TV for a minute then turning back on, the blue color was substantially but not toally reduced.
Perhaps there is an electrical charge building up distoring the color by having the TV in the ready mode for too long and by unplugging, the charge dissipates?
No other phone solution recommended other than calling for repairs.
