    Yes, the TV is connected to a cable box with a HDMI cable.

The most likely cause of your problem is the cable box HDMI output. If you have some extra cables, try connecting the TV to the cable box using the component connections. I'll bet your problem will go away. Don't let the cable company lie to you; I work on Sony TV's everyday and see plenty of cable box HDMI issues. Some of my customers have exchanged their boxes 4 or 5 times and still have HDMI issues. Your best bet is to use the component outputs or switch to Dish or Direct TV, as they DON"T have HDMI problems. If this solution works, be sure to rate it. Thanks!

I turned my tv on and the picture was green and purple. Had to adjust all of the colours to get a somewhat normal picture but it still isn't what it should be.


Turns out it was a problem with my HD satelite feed. Blueray worked perfectly. Turned tv on this morning everything back to normal.

Sony wega 28 inch colours wrong, circle on screen


It sounds that there is some magnet near by TV that is affecting picture tube. Please remove any extra speaker or any thing that has strong magnet inside, unplug TV for 20-30 minutes, replug back in, turn it ON, hope that will solve your TV problem.
Thanks.

My sony grand wega gives a blue shade on the black background which is the problem


HI, Check the menu set up of the TV. There should be an alignment feature that aligns the blue, red, and green colour projectors. If the blue is out of alignment that is likely why you can see it on the dark backgrounds. The set up normally puts a white cross on the screen and you select each of these colours and then move the cross over the white on with the arrows on your remote. Once all are aligned correctly you shouldn't be able to distinguish between different colours and hopefully this should get rid of your blue shade.

Hi, it sounds like your saying that punching in 08, 09 etc. works but channel up button won`t switch from 08 to 09 correct??? If so you need to go into your tv`s menu and "autoprogram" your channels into memory, video-tek

Blue dots on the screen


thats usually attributed to the light engine or the lens being defective. You may want to check with sony as I think there may be the possibility that they had an issue with certain models being eligible for a free repair on certain models. Check with sony support.
