Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50XBR800 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Red Ghosting on Sony Grand WEGA KF50XBR800 Rear Projection HDTV.
This problem FIX was been published on this website back on August 11, 2008. I used the procedure successfully 2 or 3 times and haven't touched it since January 2010. My Sony is a 2002 model and had the problem pop up in 2009. Here is the procedure I found here in 2009 - with some clarifying editing.
Best Solution PROBLEM: Red Ghosting on Sony Grand WEGA KF50XBR800 50 in. Rear Projection HDTV. (This may also work on the Sony Grand WEGA KF60XBR800 60 in. Rear Projection HDTV). This procedure was posted on Aug 11, 2008 on this website. I've used it two or three times. After the last reset I've not had to touch the TV. IT REALLY DOES WORK!! Plus, you don't need an expensive Service Call! 1. Power off -- let bulb cool. 2. On TV Remote: Push the Display - 5 - VOL+ - Power buttons (in quick sequence) to display Service Menu. 3. Go into the User Menu and set Auto Revision back to auto. 4. Put an image on the screen that shows the problem. The edges of a 4:3 aspect ratio signal or a vertical line in the picture usually displays the ghosting very well. It is a pinkish "shadow". 5. Use 2 to scroll through the categories to find D GM TG. 6. Use 1 to scroll through items in D GM TG to find V POS D. 7. Write down current value. 9. Use 3 and 6 number buttons on the remote to change the value to minimize the ghosting. You should only need to move it up or down a value or two. 10. Press Mute - Enter to save the changes. 11. Power off and let the bulb cool.

I just got my ghost problem resolved by getting a technician to come by and all he did was to reconverge my TV.
The pictures are much clearer and the ghosting images seems to have been corrected.Give it a try and yours should be good again.

Sounds like a light engine issue to me. Is there anyway you can post a picture of the issue itself?
