Purple scribbly lines it left hand corner of tv screen

The lines in my tv look like someone was using a etcha sketch on it. The lines appear on the top left hand corner of my screen. The lines are purple in color and are consistent from day to day. I have already changed the project lamp bulb and the problem still exit. I believe the problem is with the part that the project lamp is directed to. This part is square in size and made up of many rectangles, I believe this is the actual lcd itself being projected. Do you believe this could be my problem? If so, is there a repair manual? and what is the part number? Sony kf-50we610 lcd project TV, grand wega. Thanks

I don't think it's your bulb - sounds/looks like the known "roadmap" problem, they say they will cover it. Check this out: Now if they'd just cover the known "blue blob" problem I'm having...

If the lines on your screen looks anything like the image below, you do have a problem with the lcd, problem is you need to replace what is called the light engin. unfortunatly the price of this part is just about as much as a new replacement tv. Get a sceond opinion fron a sony service center near you, as i cannot see your picute. good luck

Sony wega blue spots lcd tv 55 inch flat screen

I assume those blue spots are appearing in a line? Regardless, unless its under warranty, its time to start looking for a new flat screen. Otherwise call them for service, sounds like it will need a new main board

Black marks on screen

my lamp problems usually start with red shades in bottom corners - red, black - same issue I think.
check your hours of filter (and clean) - clean inside your housing as helps and check lamp hours - you usually get 1500 to 3000 hours (check your user guide for lamp hours)
try and live with problem until you need new bulb as not cheap

good luck

How do I remove front panel for sony KF-60WE610 TV


Have a look at the bottom left and right corners of your set from behind. You will see two plastic flat head screws. You can loosen the screws by hand, they are made for it.

No do not try to take them out completely, they are not supposed to come out all the way.

Pull the silver bottom panel off. Pull it from the front. It will still be stuck, but only due to magnets Sony has mounted to ease the reassembly after fitting the new globe.

Once you have done what you want to, remember to tighten the plastic screws, once again do it by hand.

Good luck!

Vertical colored lines on Sony KF-50WE610

Hi Lucian

This is a common Mainboard failure problem on Projectors.

The unfortunate thing is that this can only be solved by having the part repaired or replaced.

Kf-42610 blue hue and blue dots on screen

Hi Guys

The Blue dots or discolouration you are seeing is due too the Blue LCD screen having cracked from excessive heat. This normally happens when you have a power failure while the Television was on. This obviously because the Blue LCD sits next to the lamp - the main cause of heat. The correct part number on the 60" is A-1086-952-A. It is very, very ,expensive.

Sorry to have been the bearer of bad news. Good luck : )
