    This is the same problem that I am having. I'm a Systems Engineer with Siemens and would also like to be made aware of the instructions to resolving this problem. I've owned this TV since July 2003. This is the first time this "Ghosting" problem has been seen. I would appreciate any help.
    Thanks - Ken,

    I haave a blue halo or ghosting problem on my sony 60" tv, I replaced the bulb but didn't help. It's getting worse over the past month, it now covers nearly 1/2 of my screen now. Any suggestions? Please email me

    Do not waste any money on a new optical interface through sony, what you need to do is get into the system menu and make some changes to the vertical and/or horizontal line config. Do a search for this and if you can't find it let me know and i will try and find it on my system and e-mail it to you, AGAIN do not waste any money replacing anything, if you have some AVZ and IT experience then the system meny will not be hard to do, if not then you might have to get someone knowledgeable in these 2 areas to help you out. otherwise a change in the system menu's can cause your tv to stop completely working altogether.

    What do you mean "get into the system" menu? I'm guessing if I don't know it means that I shouldn't be trying it?

    I have the ghosting problem that started a couple of weeks ago and is now getting worse. I see a pattern starting - 5 years and your screwed.

Sony is saying I have to repair my ghosting problem with an optical engine for $1650 plus $395 installation. Guess life expectancy on this TV is only 5 years. I'll think twice about a Sony in the future. Our super bowl party will be great for Sony. When everyone asks "whats wrong with your TV", I'll have to say Sony said 5 years is just about right

My TV shuts off automatically and comes back on after the red light blinks about 28-30 times. It did this every 3-4 minutes in the last hour. It is a Sony XBR - Model # KF50-XBR800? Any idea as to...

First, Clean the fan on the rear of the TV with Dust off and re test, if the problem persists, replace the lamp. It's either overheating and protecting itself or the lamp is bad. Lamp should run you from 60-70 online. Hope this helps
