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

SOURCE: Hello! I have a problem with my kdf-e50a10 sony

This is caused by a failure of the optical block of your TV. The only way to fix the issue is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive ($1000+) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart to replace the part).

The optical block in your model had inherent issues and there is currently a class action lawsuit pending against Sony for this issue. Up to date information reguarding the lawsuit can be found here: http://www.sonya20tvclassaction.com/main/home.sfx

Hello. My LG plasma 50pc3d has had red pixels jumping around whenever there is black on the screen, but has always cleared up. Today a vertical red line appeared, 1pixel thick, running from top to bottom....


Pixels on a plasma TV are from the zustain boards. You might have one or both of them about to go out. Horizontal lines are most likelly one of your buffers or the screen itself might be going bad. You can buy the sustain boards by part number that you can get from the board itself from www.interliquidparts.com

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.

Red bar across top of screen??


I had the same horizontal, solid red bar along the top of the tv screen. I have an older analog Philips Magnavox TP2785C221. It just started all of a sudden. It was on every channel. However, the bar did not appear on the other input channels (e.g., AV1, AV2). So this meant that the red bar was only occurring on the antenna input. I unplugged my cable decoder box and restarted it. The red bar went away and that seemed to solve the problem for now.
