Question about Sony KDS-R60XBR2 Television

2 Answers

Green overall tint

I have a KDS-R60XBR2. Its over a year old. I recently replaced the lamp (SONY XL-5300) with one provided by the seller. The screen was getting dark and the warning on the screen said that I should replace the lamp. I did. After a few weeks the screen darkness is back and now I get an overall Green tint (bad on the faces). I tried changing the tint to red, but thats not much help, still has an overall green cast.
I read through the Sony book and it suggests that I replace the lamp, again. Thats a bit high priced as solutions go. I read here that possibly a connection is loose, So where do I get access into the location of the BB connector? I'm willing to open up the back of the set but don't want to compromise the front surface mirrors if I have to get near the optical path. Any suggestions on opening up the set?

There is an extended warranty on the optical block which is causing your problem. Contact Sony directly at 800-222-SONY to arrange to have a technician look at the TV and have the optical block replaced. Sony is covering parts and labor for this repair. For more information visit the Sony website

I also had a strong green cast with this set. The color was most pronounced in shadows. This can be fixed by going to servicemanuals.com and ordering the training manual (not the service manual). The last several pages of of the pdf describe how to use the remote to get the set into service mode. Go to the fourth category and then into the wb (white balance) area. I ended up adjusting the green BIAS (not green GAIN) from the initial setting of 128 to 45 (or so). A few other very minor adjustments by eye and the picture is better than new. Total cost about $15.

Power error 6 times - 11V is low. - No picture/No sound


From my past experience, yes. Not sure about the 11v being low. My kdf 45 acted that way when the main lamp went out. Found a replacement on Amazon for around $45 and now good to go! So far about a year and a half. Have had to replace about 4 for friends and family so far with same symptoms. All worked great! http://www.amazon.com/F93087600-Projection-Replacement-KDS-R50XBR1-KDS-R60XBR1/dp/B005I4OLAS/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1386773721&sr=8-13&keywords=Sony+Sony+Kds-r60xbr2+bulb&tag=donations09-20

It now has a green tint -- will replacing the lamp solve that?


I have the same problem. I'm pretty sure the lamp will not take the green tint away, for the green comes from a problem with the optical block.

Sony wega KSD-R60XBR1 green screen that can not be adjusted no matter what input is used or adjustment through onscreen tv options. how do i knw if it is the color wheel, light engine, or just a bulb


Hi,
It is light engine problem in your Sony KDS-R60XBR2 lcd rear projection tv.
This tv does not have any color wheel because of its light engine technology.
Lamp is just light source that provides bright white light to light engine and its working properly.
Light engine will be replaced to fix green screen problem.

If you tv model is other than above mentioned, let me know to revise this answer.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Picture color is off after circuit breaker tripped. Only blues and greens. Model SONY KDS - R60XBR2. Does the lamp do this when it needs replacing or could something else have blown when the breaker...


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.
