If your Sony TV screen has a blue tint, it does not generally mean that your TV is damaged.
Sony TVs, like many other smart TVs, have inbuilt features that allow you to adjust your picture preferences to have a blue tint effect, so for most users, this is not always caused by a fault.
If your Sony TV has a blue tint, then it can mean that the setting is enabled in your picture settings, there is an issue with your HDMI cable or other cables connected to your TV, or your hardware is faulty.
Most of the time, the backlight might be the cause of screen tinting issues. I have provided more detailed troubleshooting steps in the next section.
Troubleshooting Sony TV Screen Blue Tint Issues
Change Picture Settings
Modern televisions have built-in features that allow you to customize your image preferences, such as the tint effect. If your Sony TV screen has a blue tint, then it is possible that it has been enabled in the TV settings.
Here’s how to change the picture settings on your Sony TV.
- First, press the HOME button on your Sony TV remote control.
- Next, select Picture & Display from the menu using the navigation buttons.
- Now, select Picture Adjustments and change your preferences.
Here’s a breakdown of the options and their functions.
Picture Mode Options: This option allows you to change the picture modes between Vivid, Standard, Custom, Cinema Pro, Cinema Home, Sports, and Animation. There is a list of other modes, depending on your preferences.
Brightness and Color Settings: This option allows you to make changes to the picture brightness and color saturation level.
Advanced Settings: This option allows you to make more advanced adjustments to your picture settings. You can basically change anything related to color in this section, like brightness, contrast, gamma, black levels, color and hue, color temperature, and so on.
You can always reset your picture settings to default by clicking on the Reset option available in the Advanced Settings section.
Note that the options available on the picture settings might have different names or locations depending on your TV model, but the functions are the same.
Check Cable Connection
If you still have a blue tint on your Sony TV after updating your picture settings, the problem could be due to an incorrect or faulty cable connection.
The best way to identify if your cable connection is causing the blue tint is to navigate through all of your inputs to see if the blue tint issue is affecting other connections as well.
If you’re having the blue tint on only one input, then you should know that there is something definitely wrong with the connection.
For example, if only the HDMI input has the blue tint issue, then you should check your HDMI connection and make sure it is snugly attached to the TV, or better yet purchase a new one.
You should also consider the possibility that the HDMI port on the TV is damaged.
You can change the input source of your Sony TV by pressing the “Input” button on your remote control.
Perform a Power Cycle
The blue tint can be caused by a software glitch, and performing a quick power cycle can fix this problem. Follow the steps below to perform a power cycle on your Sony TV.
- First, power off your Sony TV and unplug it from the power outlet.
- Next, you’ll need to wait for about 60 seconds before plugging it back in.
That’s all. This simple process clears the system cache and any software glitch that has caused the blue tint issue.
If you have tried the troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to fix the blue tint issue, then it might be a hardware problem that requires an expert.
Most of the color problems you’ll face on your TV are caused by a damaged backlight.
Backlights are simply light sources that is found inside a display to provide lighting for the screen. Backlights can degrade over time with long use at a high brightness level.
You’ll need to contact Sony Customer Support for help with fixing your backlight or any other hardware issues. It shouldn’t cost too much if your warranty is still available.
I wouldn’t advise you to tamper with your TV hardware by opening it up. This can invalidate your warranty or cause further damage to your Sony TV if you’re not an expert.
At this point, you now know that the cause of the blue tint is either a faulty cable connection, a damaged port, or the wrong picture settings.
This guide has covered the troubleshooting steps for each of these causes, and you should fix the problem if it isn’t related to backlight.
For issues related to your backlight and repairs on your Sony TV, please contact a technician, or better yet, contact Sony Support.
I’ll like to know how you have solved the blue tint issue on your Sony TV.
