SOURCE: SONY GRAND WEGA KF-50WE610 can't turn on TV screen.

Ths 5 blinks usually indicate an AKB problem. There is a break in the video path. I'll look up your specific model and post the results here. Please update this if you wish to attempt the repair yourself.

Thanks,
Dan

It sounds like to me you have a bad Optical Block. It is a expensive repair and you may want to call Sony at 1800-222-SONY and see if the would assist you in repairs. Due to the age of it, they would probably only cover a partial amount of the repair.
Hope this helps,

most likely, buy you a lamp and install it yourself, the owners manual tells you how to do this.

Color splotches


I had same problem, or should I say I still have it, slowly getting worse, and I had replaced the Y board which would be logical based on description of what board controls, but it didn't help. I found out it is the plasma screen, and not worth replacing, so I put up with it until picture is all full of shadows, then will part it out. Last time I had issues with capacitors a few years ago, I spent $400. on several boards, including Y board trying to isolate problem, that is how I learned it didn't help the shadows creeping in after warming up. Live with it or buy a new TV is what I am doing.

My Insignia NS LCD 37 will power up but the screen is gray and there is an even lighter gray bar going up and down but no picture


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Different color vertical lines on screen Sony KDF-E55A20


Go to the last page of troubleshooting in the manual and perform the system reset procedure. Basically hold the Wega "arrow up" as you manually switch the TV off. It will automatically switch back on and reset. I had only vertical colored lines on the screen, with audio but no response to any remote control functions. The rest worked perfectly.

Color splotch when TV is powered on, then TV powers down automatically


Good Day;
It is very common for this model from what you spoke. If you handy return to me, Big Irish, and I will continue to help you.

99.9 % of the time of what you stated it sounds like a shorted CRT, picture tube. I have seen hundreds.
First, call the manufacture and complain about your concern and ask them for a CONCESSION because your tube has gone out.
2.If that does not work ; call a factory authorized service dealer to confirm problem and get an estimate, then return ti #1.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish. I hope I helped.

No blue colors projected on screen


Only a few causes for this problem. "Splotches" are usually caused by dust in the light engine which can sometimes be blown out using compressed air. Pink picture is caused by either data or burnt lcd card. Procedure for data is: put tv to ch. 3 and turn power off. simultaneously press input and power on set for three seconds to access service menu. Be very careful not to change settings other than what needs changed. These adjustments are changed using directional arrows. Navigate to "memory init" then hold (r) arrow button for 5 seconds. You will know if it worked. Then exit and/or turn set off. Please let me know if this is successful as I have additional info you may need. Good luck, Russmann.
