Question about Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" Projection HDTV
Can't adjust the colors. lots of green and less red and other colors? what should I do? I bought this TV in March 2006. I got it from Circuit City.
I have the same model and mine did the same thing last year. Initially had the "green blob" problem, but then it seemed like overnight, an overpowering green push that I could not correct with the full range of white balance controls. Turned out to be the dreaded bad optical block. The OB's are a known problem with this set and its 60" sibling, and the basis of a class action lawsuit against Sony. Under the settlement of the lawsuit, Sony has extended the warranty only for the optical block until June 2009. You can find out more than you wanted to know about it on the AV Science Forum at avsforum.com and they have a link to Sony's web page for this problem. BTW, after my optical block replacement (at no cost), my set has a very faint pinkish to greenish color impurity which fades to nearly imperceptibile after warmup. It hasn't gotten worse over the past year and it doesn't bother me enough to risk having it replaced with another OB which could be worse. Bottom line: it sounds like you need and optical block replacement, which Sony is having done in-home at no cost to you.
