Re: sony wega rear projection

Many Sony LCD projection TV's have a problem with optic block failures and your description is exactly what happens. Picture starts turning yellow or green and blotches of yellow or green. Many Sony model have an extended manufacture warranty on these optic blocks and if you get me the model and serial # of your unit I can provide more info.

Green line running vertically along the edge of picture

If its a LCD projection TV (such as Sony Wega, Hitachi, Epson, Philips, and some Panasonic, some Mitsubishi), and the green image is in the whole screen or just one part as a blob or a line. Is most probably that one of your LCD Color Filters is damaged (burned out or starting to get busted), I don’t know if you can just replace the color filter, I believe you need to change the whole light engine system or the optical block. There are some places around, I found some on ebay but you should definitely try on discountdashmerchantdotcom their price range $260.00 - $330.00

Picture problems

My computer did this and I think my TVs just gone the same way. Was definitely a loose connection somewhere. In the computer monitor it was because the pins in the plug were slightly bent and if I moved the wire the picture got better. In the end I had to replace the connecting cable
