Hello,

First things first. If you took the lamp out of the chamber, make sure the lamp is back in place correctly. You may have to "snuggle" it up a little with your fingers (not too hard, just make sure it is in the chamber properly). Then put the door back on properly, which can be a hard thing to make sure of on this set. If you feel any resistance, it is not on right. It should go in and fit just right. Lock it down with the bar, and try the power.

The red stripe across the top is something I'm seeing more and more of these days. The optical block on this television is showing some of the same symptoms that the older ones have been showing for years. They go bad.

I'd call Sony (you can look up the number on the sony website for customer service). Ask them if there is anything they can do to help you, because the optical block is quite expensive.

I hope this helps you...

Pink bar across top of tv screen


This could be from 2 things. 1 is the optical block is going bad or 2 you got a peice of dust blown in from the cooling fan and its blocking the color filter internally. If you are capable you can take the tv apart and blow compressed air into the color block and remove the dust. Hope this helps

Red Stripe


the cost of the repair is fair. The color wheel is about 175.00 some other areas in the tv with the kind of problem you are relating can cost the board just above 200.00 until 350.00 then only the color wheel can practically cover the cost you are about to do. Plus labor. make sure they give you the 3 months warranty.

Arched pink lines across screen. Now green and pink double stacked wording.


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
