Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Image too big for screen

I was at a friends house & on his Sony Wega (I think it is the 50" model) it looks like the HD image is cropped a bit to fit the screen (e.g. can't see the scores of football games). The full image does show in the PIP insert. The Wide Screen mode selection does not have "full" available (greyed out). video source is via HDMI from the HD Cable box.

Any idea what to do to fix it?

I have the same tv.
On your remote push menu, then go to settings, and then screen. Put the auto wide to on. And keep the picture mode on normal, not the zoom or wide zoom. If its in HD it will fit the screen. If its not in HD it will crop the sides. This worked for me, hope it works out.

I have a 50' Sony Grand Wega red bar on top of screen


Well this is an LCD projection TV and it sounds like one of the polarizer filter has gotten out of place so you are seeing at the top of your screen the unfiltered image of the LCD panel.
Will need to go into a shop to get repaired. Call and get an estimate of repair. Actually shouldn't be too bad of a repair cost.

Sony Grand Wega kf50we610


Hello Kpollman,

Since this is an LCD projection television I would check to see if there is an image on the LCD screen. if there is not I would check the circuitry connected to the LCD. Now if there is an image on the LCD screen I would make sure that the white light bulb is working. Now this might seem backwards, but I have seen folks replace a blown bulb only to find out that the LCD screen was gone also, so this little bit of reverse angle troubleshooting will at least help you solve a major problem first and then allow you to move on to the simpler problem of a blown bulb.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
Shuttle83
