Question about Sony KDF46E2000 46" Projection HDTV

Purple color band at top of TV screen

On satellite programming service. Purple band has showed up at top of screen, about 2" thick across whole width of top of screen. Not present until I installed an over-the-air antenna for reception of digital local channels. Cable run is probably 100 feet, no pre-amp used and I have both sets of cables (sat and ant) running parallel to each other outside. Would there be any issues with the antenna install or is this a TV component problem? Thanks for your input.

If the problem is visible on all inputs (DVD, sat, etc.) you have a bad optical block. That model has a two year warrnty on the block but you'll have to pay labor to get it replaced

Blurry, purple bar across middle of plasma tv screen


Plasma screens are extremely susceptible to getting broken from any impacts to the face of the screen. What you are describing sound very much like distorted or dead pixels. It may not be a fixable issue, you may have to replace the entire unit or live with the purple bar. The reason you don't notice it as much when the screen is dark is because purple is on the darker end of the spectrum, and will be most visible in contrast to lighter ad brighter colors.

I have a Samsung 42" plasma Model HP-R4252 TV and now I see a group of blue/purple vertical lines on the right side of the screen from top to bottom. Each one is about 1mm in width but all together they...


You may have to change the DMD (Digital Micromirror Device). Also you may have to change the color wheel and lamp; the DMD will cost you around $200-$300. The color wheel and lamp will together cost you another $300.
This type of tv repair may be very expensive especially if you have to pay a technician to perform the repair for you.
It's at that point that you may decide to invest in a new unit.

Purple lines scrolling, green in the middle, blinking on and off


Time for a new TV... Unless your really really really attached to that TV your going to spend more money on it then its worth to try and troubleshoot and repair it. Most of the TV's that come across my bench for repair that have developed lines and color splotches go into the recycling dumpster, they just aren't worth the time to repair as it usually comes down to a bad board or components that just can't be obtained to repair it. What most people don't realize is that once a tv is a couple years old there just isn't service parts for them anymore. The manufacturer keeps parts available until the warranty period is up on a model then its done for.

Purple Screen on my Canon PowerShot A85 (Canada)


If the purple band does not appear in pictures when you download them on computer, then the problem is a faulty LCD screen or a bad ribbon cable.

If the purple band appears in pictures even when you watch them on a computer, then the problem is a faulty CCD sensor.

In both situations the repair requires complete disassembling and must be done by a technician.

If it is CCD , then Canon may cover the out of warranty repair, call them back and ask again stating that is CCD problem.

Purple band at top of tv screen


Please make sure you have the Lamp seated properly in the set. If you purchased just the lamp without the basket make sure it is Flush against the front of the lamp basket. The light path is being obstructed or not aimed properly. Let me know, hope this helps.
