Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony screen image distortion.

I have a Sony KDF-42WE655 Grand Wega with a blue creeping distortion on the left side of the screen. I replaced the lamp (this is an LCD projection TV) a few months ago. The blue "amoeba" changes and also disappears on a couple of channels but is definitely growing. How do I fix this? Please don't tell me that my neighborhood is in danger.

SCREEN IS BLUE IN HALF AND THE REST IS BLUE FOG


You did the right thing with the bulb. The current problem is something different altogether. My guess is that your TV is 2 plus years old. The Grand Wega has an inherrent latent defect, which Sony is not acknowledging or taking resposablity for, in that the optic block distorts after a certain number hours of use. I am curretly working to get an equittable resolution but Sony is stonewalling - would like to get a class action going for the KDF. To learn more Goggle MSNBC " Problems with Sony Gran Wega "

Blue color flowing from side and bottom into picture


Sony tech support (no charge) said it was definitely not the lamp.
Their suggestion- By unplugging the TV for a minute then turning back on, the blue color was substantially but not toally reduced.
Perhaps there is an electrical charge building up distoring the color by having the TV in the ready mode for too long and by unplugging, the charge dissipates?
No other phone solution recommended other than calling for repairs.
