Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

Yellow tint on screen, little bright spots on the dark blue.

The screen has a yellow tint in the middle and around the sides, also bright little spots on the dark blue. seems to be getting worse. If watching something with a white background, it's very noticeable. Any thoughts on this. It is a Grand KF-42WE610.

    my tv is the same model number but not a projection itleast I didnt think it was, any idea on how to clean mine

    Oh Yeah! I have "the spots", the dark picture even though I've replaced the lamp once already, and the green haze. Spots appear to be dust on internal optics that are inaccessable.My Solution? Gave the ****** to my mother and bought a Sony 52" Bravia for myself. I'm thinking Sony let us all down when they designed this baby.

Jerry to be frank with you I would not invest another cent in that Tv. The new once are getting cheaper and you would be alot happier. If you do decide to purchase a new TV look for SMART TV'S. Good Luck.

Dell w4201c no picture just bright colored spots


Was this set moved or transported? Is it possible someone struck the screen even if mildly?

If you can take a few good pictures and post them somewhere on the internet and provide the location--seeing what it looks like might tell what is wrong.

A classic description: set comes on but is a black swirling cloud where images can be dimly seen but are not clear--gets a little better after a few minutes but never gets normal.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Green tint to bright spots on screen


Try to observe the problem when there is a white screen or predominantly white screen. If the screen is green or yellow where it should be white, its most likely a problem with one or more of the small LCD panels in the TV's light engine.

Its an expensive problem to fix. The light engine most likely will have to be replaced. Check with Panasonic customer relations for possible assistance.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
