I'm an amateur audiophile.
Have my ps3 connected to my Sony Wega Rear Proejction / lcd 55" (kdf something-made in 2005) and my harmon kardon CP 35..
I"m having two issues and thanks to this forum, both issues are being addressed. one is an audio one which i will omit here.
Oh the reason for the preceding is i want to acknowledge the resource this forum is and the PEOPLE helping each other out. Kudos to you all.
I too was having the blue blob effect. I first noticed it while watching my blu ray copy of Ben Hur. The blue blob was a line of sorts showing up where the black bottom border met the horizontal bottome line of the movie. All this is on the screen.
I followed a fella's link: http://sites.google.com/site/sonylcd...ockreplacement
that led me to this forum somewhere about cleaning the optical block. I did that (using compressed air in a can) and the blue stuff/blobs went away completely.
Then a few days later, it came back. Note, when I first turn on the tv, there are no blue blobs present anywhere. it seems that only after a while they show up, and again note it seems to be in a different place now.
my GF was watching net flix for a few hours Full screen, so there were black borders on both sides of the broadcast, and the other day i saw the blue blobs on the right side of where the black border met the image being broadcast. they are small and not terrible, but I think this is a sign of something worse to come.
my question: based on my description, should I go back and clean up the optical block? I went as far as pulling the block out of the tv, still wired though, removing the metal plate that covers the ribbon things, and just sprayed air in there. Thikning of doing that again.
