Sony 60" HDTV Plasma WEGA....Picture Problem

I had this TV for about 2 years. There seems to be a problem now with the picture, it looks sort of faint yellowish green, even adjustments couldn't fix the problem, the picture just lost its true color it had before, it looks really dull...

Sounds like your component cables may have come off its contact point. Check to see if your cables have become loose. Pushing them back in place should take care of that but check at the source output and the TV's input. Red Green Blue, when ever one of these 3 come out of contact the TV will produce a color hue relevant to what color remains in contact, looking faint and discolored. If you do find a loose cable connection, inspect the contact ends and squeeze lightly to restore a snug fit but don't do it to hard or you may damage the prongs.

I have the Sony KDS- 60A2020 60 inch TV. Recently, my picture has appeared more yellowish. Everyone on it looks like there dark yellowish or have fairly dark (bronze) sun tans. I changed my lamp yesterday...


I have a older 2006 SXRD rear projection TV. I had the same problem after the TV warmed up this yellow tint started in the corner and crawled its way down the TV. It turned out that Sony had a recall on the optic block of the TV. If you replaced the Lamp and adjusted the color this kinda sounds like the same problem. Here is a link explaining it. In this article it shows up as a green haze and blob, but in my TV it manifested as a yellow tint.

Sony 60" HDTV Plasma WEGA....Picture Problem


My guess is that you're not missing the color it just appears muted... That problem is a common one in both the 50 and 60 inch models. And if you change video mode with nothing hooked up you'll see a faint color where none should be...
That's simply dust in the optical block on one of either the red, blue or green lcd panel. Wipe it down with a non-linting cloth and a "light" amount of windex and you're back in business...
But check it out by switchin through the video modes with nothing hooked up.. The faint color you see if the lcd panel that's having the most problem and the one that's muting your green.

You have one of two problems. Sometimes both.

Problem #1) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Problem #2)

Your TV may have a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem



  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can hire a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a step by step picture instruction guide, original OEM parts, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

White colors schemes seem off white color or brownish color and blue has green tint or baby blue color. .


Check the coolant in all three crt's as chances are it is contaminated (should be crystal clear). If brown (beer color), replace coolant in all three crt's and perform convergence adjust. Picture should be like new!!!

Good Luck!!!

Picture is yellow


Your picture tubes are weak or you need to do whats called a grey scale adjustment. In other words you need to put on a totally B&W movie or test pattern and adjust the red , green, and the blue screens to the best B&W you can get. Then you need to adjust the CRT drives to the best grey scale. If you do not know what this is, I'm afraid you should call out a pro to assist you with this alignment, as if you go messing around, and do not know what you are doing, you can make the set landfill material. Not for a novice to do. Good Luck

A line on the screen


Is the line perfectly strait? Is it seem to be yellowish in color? If it seems yellowish then the light engine is the problem is the blue panel is defective. Sony covers the light engine for two years. The labor you will probably pay for but, not bad concidering the part is 1000.00 or more.
