Hi all,

Bought this set in Q4 2004 and have had the bulb replaced once in 07. Recently went w/ LAMP RED LED illuminating. I ordered a replacement lamp w/ housing from Amazon which they had listed as a Sony KDF-55XS995/KDF55XS995 Lamp with Housing XL2200 by Philips. Definitely brighter; but now we have a blue tinge along the bottom of the screen about 1-3" mostly to the left of the bulb assembly area??
Any ideas?
