Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

3LCD Projection TV 2.5 years old displaying blue hue/blobs

Model: Sony KDF E50A102 months ago, blue hue appears at top of screen.Getting more intense over time.Now consistently has a blue irregular shaped spot on upper left corner and a long bluish one down the middle of the screen.  Sometimes has a noticeable "burn in" effect or an after image of one displayed earlier overlaying a current display. ie. words, shapes and all bluish.
help? I have the same problem but the blue cast is the bottom right corner and growing.
Seems ominous - appreciate any advice

    Thanks Abrsvcs,

    It looks like it is the Light Engine - ouch. I might have to trash the TV unless I can find a cheaper way to fix it. Sony in Australia are less than helpful!

I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.

    If you are in Australia, try posting a note to Robotek. He is located there and may be able to provide more info. I don't have access to the service info for models for your location.

Your screen is bad or you have an alignment issue. Do you have a convergence feature in the menu or on the tv? Try it. If not, you need a repair. Contact the manufacturer for and authorized servicer.

Problem with sony 60" rear projection TV


Hi,
I'm afraid, it is problem of optical block unit (light engine) that produce picture by 3 lcds inbuilt, the blue lcd and its related uv filters become defective and causing this kind of blue hue on screen.
Complete optical unit block (light engine) will be replaced by qualified tech to get tv fixed, light engine is costly part so ask an estimate before sending tv in.
Thanks.

Purple band at top of tv screen


Please make sure you have the Lamp seated properly in the set. If you purchased just the lamp without the basket make sure it is Flush against the front of the lamp basket. The light path is being obstructed or not aimed properly. Let me know, hope this helps.
