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

1 Answer

We are stuck in ZOOM. No one has a head!

This problem may have started when we moved recently, but I don't see why that would be the case. The tv was plugged in as it was before, etc. The tv is 'stuck' in zoom mode. We attempted to fix the problem logically by using the remote and adjusting the settings, but for no reason we can understand, the tab for "normal" can't be chosen--it's grayed out on the panel. We were advised by a local tv repairman to simply turn off the set and leave it off to 'reset' for several hours, which we did with no change. What can we do??? Thanks so much.

Are you using an HD cable or sat. box? If so then the settings on that can certainly lock out the zoom/normal feature on the TV. The way you can tell is go to another input and see of the selections are still greyed out. If not then your cable box or sat. rcvr is incorrectly set. Let me know what happens.

Is not working properly


A good possibility is the zoom head is causing the clicking sound. As we zoom the flash, the inside of the head moves to the back and forward. Gently tap it a few times see if that helps. My guess is it needs servicing.

I had a similar problem with my 430 EXII flash recently and discovered that after using the flash head in a "bounce" orientation, where the zoom automatically sets itself to 50mm, It wouldn't go back to wide angle or telephoto when I folded it back into place. The problem was caused by a small piece of confetti preventing the head from fully resting in the forward position. Check to see if there is any debris caught in there.

Just recently my sharp aquos lc 40 e is stuck in stretch of wide screen and the heads or top of things are being cut off. When i go to view mode it only gives me 4 options wide, stretch dot to dot or zoom...


Not all TV programs are broadcast in 1080. When you use zoom or stretch on a program in 720 or 480 and a 1080 program is viewed you have to go back and take off zoom and stretch to get a correct picture.

When i zoom my cam in and out, it became blurder.


On a webcam, you will generally find that they don't have the optical zoom that you would find on a compact digital, or SLR camer. in most cases, the zoom that you have is digital zoom, this just increases the size of parts the image being fed to the computer, and will often become blurred after a certain point. the best advice would be to move closer to the cam, or to buy a camera with higher resolution...generally 5MP should be more than enough.
the other thing you should try first, is to check that the camera isn't out of focus by looking for a ring around the lens, on some models there will be an adjustable focus, if this is the case,rotate the ring until a desirable image is shown.

Zoom--mm blinking and can't change mode


Your zoom motor is probably stuck. Remove the two screws on the front side of the tiltable head. Pry off the two tilt caps using a small flat head screwdriver (they are glued on). Remove the 4 screws found under each cap. Now you can separate the two sides of the head and take out the two lenses (remember exactly how the lenses were positioned). Try pushing the flash in or out (it should move with a little force). See if the flash now responds before reassembling.
