    My tv recently developed purple tint/blob toward the bottom of the screen. On some screens its more noticeable than others. Here is a picture of the problem.

    Does this mean I need a new lamp or is this something else.

    Thanks

    Looks likely to be an optical block issue, seems to be a frequent problem with sony rp :(. The TV Engineer did a thread showing you how to diy a kdfa42a12 recently, it cant be that far down the listing you should have a look at that mate. Its pretty daunting inside one of these sets though, I bottled it when I pulled mine apart.

    I was reading the other thread about the color blob and saw that some people mentioned that sony extended their warranty on the color block because it had a design flaw. If this is correct and my problem is being caused by the color block, how can I pursue this so that they fix my tv.

    Thanks.
