The blue shadow is a sign of a bad light engine. this is a common problem for this model. Fixing this type of problem is quite expensive. Light engine Costs you several hundred of dollars nearly to the price of new TV set.

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.
