Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a Philips plasma 50 inch tv, I had the red dot problem a year ago. Went through the extended warranty and Andulusia TV service in Bensalem, to repair the problem. They had it for amonth and told me that they replaced the motherboard, it wasn't fixed. I called them and they came out again and took my TV for 2 weeks. They called and said it was fixed and they are going to deliver my TV back to me. Put the TV on and 2 hours later, BAM ! red dots again. Called the warranty company (Repair Master) and asked them what do I have to do to get it fixed or get it replaced, obviously something is wrong with it. They told me to send it back to Andulusia TV and it will not be replaced until they say it can't be repaired. Andulusia wants me to give them the TV back again. I said, No, you had it two times already in a year and its not fixed. Basically, they told me to go pound sand. I think the system is that they wait you out until the warranty is over, then it's screw you. I'm Hot. This TV was $3,800.00 and $500.00 for the warranty. I need some good adavice. Can you help me out?

The panel is bas. it has a diffusion problem.most extended warranty companies require you to let the shop try 3 times to repair for the same problem. on the 4th time they talk replacement.
best to read the contract.

Sams club warranty problem


The bulbs aren't normally covered after the first year. Some extended warranty companies used to cover the bulbs after that, but now since the economy is bad... a lot of companies are trying to save money by not covering the lamps anymore. And the ones that did are handing the warranties over to other companies. You probably will just have to buy one yourself or you will just be chasing your tail.

Sony KDS-R50xbr1 50" Problems


Here's the best way to get Sony's and/or the extended warranty company's attention and possible help.

Send an old fashioned letter to Sony and your extended warranty provider outlining the problems and your concerns regarding your TV. Make sure to prominently indicate that a copy of the letter is being sent to the complaint division at the attorney general's office in your state. After having to settle claims surrounding their optical block (light engine) issues Sony now understands that failure to address their customer's complaints may result in another judgement against them.

Good luck and give 'em hell!

Sony KDS-50A2000 screen is in green tint


My Sony KDS 50 A2000 is 17 months old. Its the 50 Inch SXRD projection model. About two weeks ago the screen developed a green tint with cannot be tuned out, then a few days later the message began to appear on the screen that the bulb was nearing the end of its life and must be replaced.
Fortunately I have the Circuit City extended warranty.
I called and within just a few days a serviceman came out and replaced the projection bulb.
The Result: No change in the picture, the green tint remains on all channels, so I'm awating the next service call. Under the service warranty they have the option to repair or replace this set. If indeed this is the light engine (optical block) which I suspect and its going to cost $1,000 or more I may be looking at a new set.
When it works this is a great TV, but I have had three Sonys now including two other standard CRT models and now this one joins them in the junk heap, the other two also bit the dust after just about two years. Is it time to give up on Sony?
I know they have a class action suit on a similar model for this same problem. Caveat emptor
