SOURCE: TWO DARK SPOTS IN THE SCREEN

My tv set as the same problem. By doing some research on the internet found out it is the optical block. Very expensive to fix if you do not have extended warranty coverage. Apparently, it is not an isolated case and many many many owners of this set are experiencing discoloration after owning it for a few years. Sony will tell you they don't know anything about it. Visit this web link for detailed information. http://sites.google.com/site/sonylcdrptvproblems/sonyrearprojectionlcdtv-opticalblock

There's a lawsuit pending. Sony apparently knew about these defects and they continued selling them. No more Sony for me. I feel betrayed. Whta is worst, when you call Sony they play dumb and treat you like you are an ignorant person. Normal tear and wear they say. Only 4 yrs with this unit and paid more than $3k. Normal? Unacceptable.

Dark smudges/spots on my HDTV screen


The model indicated here Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 is a LCD rear projection and rarely if ever requires cleaning.

If black spots or such are gradually appearing the issue on this model is the optical light engine.

Set uses a LCD engine which the lamp shines directly into and heat from that very hot lamp can damage sensitive baffles inside the engine.

I would suggest also you contact Sony as they have on several models extended the warranty for this kind of issue---Engine is very expensive part and several of these Sony sets were involved in a class action lawsuit--hence they are dealing with them.

Do not take no for an answer if you want them to help you---the hinge that is sqeeks gets oiled...........

Red Lines through picture when screen is dark, back ground has a red tint. On my 48 "Sony Rear Projection" TV


You can try adjusting the Red color output. (Very touchy adjustment)

If you take off the front cover/speaker cover, there should be a access panel. Behind that, there should be a small square black box with 6 screws on it. This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are located)

It sounds more like you may need less red in the mix. There is a screw for each color. R, G, and B. Do not mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.'

Go to an unused input where the screen should be dark. Barely turn the red down in a dark room so that the red spot is at the same level as the Blue and Green.

Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it.
Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.

Do not turn any of these up too high or damage may occur and the TV may detect a short and shut off.

I have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.

I hope this helps! Just be careful.

Red spot on LCD


Hi,
1) That red spot means that a pixel is stuck, actually it's very common on LCDs.
2 and 3) It usually occurs for a manufacturing issue.
4) The most of the time it doesn't mean that the whole screen is going to fail, but in my case I would take advantage of the warranty if the laptop is brand new and the warranty is still there.
Good Luck!!!

Spots on screen


Youlikely have dust inside the optical block on the LCD panels. Cleaning the panels is a tricky job and just shooting compressed air into the block will only redistribute the dust. A qualified tech can disassemle the block and clean the panels

Dark screen on TV


This sounds like a speaker got too close to the TV.
Degauss is built into many tv's check for it in the menu.
Otherwise, yes a TV shop or yourself will need to degauss the TV.

your best bet if you dont have a warranty on the tv is to get it repaired shouldnt be more then 150.00 you dont want the risk of having to fix something else if you get into the tv.

I GET WHITE SPOTS ON MY LCD SCREEN


this is a touchy subject for sony. basically sony has increased the brightness levels for the backlights to have better color tones in thier lcd's. well the downfall of this is the white spots you are experiencing. this is not a defect, you will never get them to go away, the only thing you can do is to turn the backlight and brightness down to reduce the white spots. if you contact sony, there is a software upgrade that will help reduce this issue...
