    Our Sony Grand Wega KDF-50WE655 is just a little older than the one described and we are experiencing the same problems. However, ours went through a progression of blue blotches (ghosts), blue tinging around the screen perimeter and has finally settled to an oval opening in the middle of the screen where the "normal" picture will come through, but with a faint yellow tinge. Is this a common problem for this model and age TV? What does it require to fix it?

This problem is caused by a bad optical block. Sony has extended the warranty for this problem but the extension is only valid until December 2008 so you must act now. You can find instructions for obtaining service and additional information here:

Contrary to popular belief, any display product can have "Image Retention" and even "Burn-In". This is true for Plasma, LCD, LCOS, DLP, and CRT. I do not see a model number provided, but I would bet that you have an LCD rear projection TV rather than a DLP projection TV. If this is the case, the Blueish and Greenish blotches you are seeing on the screen are the result of UV light damage. UV light will move heavily damage the Blue panel, due it's short wave length. So, bad Blue or Green (absence or Blue) is typically the the first visual indicator of a problem. Replacing the Light Engine will resolve the problem.

Red and blue ghosting,


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.
