Well I am not sure about that model but I had one do that and what I had to do was unplug and replug the LVDS which is the codt connecting the Main board to the screen. I am not sure exactly where it is located on that model but if you take off the back and locate the board that looks to be the "main" board. Then you have to locate the cord that connects to the screen, in mine it is a bunch of wires in a black covering, and unplug and replug it. I had to do this about 10 times to get the picture unfortionantly I already bought a new one but it now works.

My 42" Sony WEGA suddenly lost blue color everything else OK


Lost of color blue is caused by a defective LCD on your optical block assembly. I would recommend you to contact the nearest Sony service center. It is one of the most difficult trouble for this particular model.it needs a LCD replacement.

Sony wega 42 has red dot on screen.


Is the dot in just one location..if so does it ever change color at all. My first guess is something has gotten into the color display, like a small dust spec. . Or there is an issue with the front panel. If the unit is less than five years old they will look at it on site under warranty.

Intermitant color bursts of red, green, purple


Kevin,

for the color problem,most likely you do have problem with loose contact of components from C-board ( small board connected at the back of CRT "picture tube" which drives every color and size of the screen)if you have knowledge with soldering electronic component parts, resolder this board and also check main board for possible loose contact.

cheers,
mark

Color problem with Sony Grand WEGA 42WE655


Hello,

Well, there probably isn't any relation between the two problems occuring exept for the timing. Magnetism won't affect a rear projection LCD.

I would say that your description is a bit odd, though. Usually on this model, there is a blue blob that shows up, eventually turning into a blue haze, and a star pattern of stuck pixels. It almost sounds like you have a bad set of component cables. On the SXRD's, they usually turn green.

Does it do it on all inputs (including the channels)? If it does, then it is the optical block. If it does not, then I would suspect that it is cable-related. If it is the optical block, then there is no way that any input can be different from the others (except for digital/analog differences, but those are usually obvious with patterns vertically on the screen).

If it does not look the same on all inputs or channels, change out whatever cables you are using. A loss of the red or blue cable in a component can give the symptoms you describe.

I hope this helps you...

Tv lost color


Your problem most likely is on the signal board is my guess. If your not a technician it would be in your best interest to have him check L2C60 on the signal board.

Call sony at this number and tell them what your tv is doing? If it is like mine they will replace the optical block. It seems that Sony will cover parts and labor if you do it before the end of the year. If the numbers don't work just go to sony's website and check for warranty or support information
