Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blue glow in center of Screen

I have a 42'' Sony Wega.  I purchased it in October 2004.  Just last night we noticed a light blue glow in the center of the screen.  It's a little ''L-shaped'' , about 6 inches wide.  I tried cleaning the screen, but that didn't help.  You can't see anything on the screen when it's turned off.  Any ideas?

Your screen is bad or you have an alignment issue. Do you have a convergence feature in the menu or on the tv? Try it. If not, you need a repair. Contact the manufacturer for and authorized servicer.

Blue tint at the bottom of the screen


Your optical block (light engine) is going bad. A very expensive part. Sony has a history of trouble with a lot of these. Sont will also sometimes warranty them for customers. Contact them with your model, serial, and date of purchase. Good luck.
