KDF55E2000 - Red band at top of Screen

Hello -

Today when I was watching tv I noticed a light red almost pinkish horizontal band for about the top 2 inches on my tv. It looks pink at the top and then yellowish on the bottom. The rest of the screen looks ok. Any ideas?

You can use this screen to move your picture up a bit and get rid of the line. If it doesnt work the first time, move it a little more. Good Luck!

I don't think you are posting about a LCD flat panel set, since replacing he lamp on these means replacing the panel.. If this is a rear projection set as I suspect it is, there are two likely causes.
1) Pull the lamp back out and clean the dispersion lens/UV filter immediately behind where the lamp goes. Clean it carefully, because it is easy to damage.
2) You have a bad optical block

Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
Can they be seen in the OSD/menu?
If yes to both questions, it is likely that the LCD panel is bad

SOURCE: white has turned pinkish

sounds like the linear adjustment is out of whack.....most projection type tvs, projection, lcd, plasma, have to be correctly aligned so that the color grids overlap each other to properly display the correct hue being created. you'd need the service code to re-adjust it, or have it serviced. also possible that one of the color grids is bad, but if you have all three (red,blue,green) colors showing on the entire screen area i would doubt it

Im pretty sure its not the television. You are getting interference from either through your cable box or your electric in the house. Possible bad dimmer switch.
