Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV
In the left hand corner a blue light is showing on the screen. It is about 12 inches long and about 5 inches high. I tried to adjust the color setting but the light is still there.
Color distoritions on DLP based rear projection tvs like this are either produced by the video board or light engine itself.. I'd like to qualify that by saying unless there are no other symptoms, however slight. These are clearly a set of symptoms that you need to take to a qualified shop though. They can perform a number of tests on the board and light engine based on the service manual for that unit. It is clearly NOT the kind of repair you want to take the shotgun approach to repairing. The light engine in this unit, for example, is Sony p/n#A-1606-039-A and cost roughly $900.00 plus a $500.00 core plus shipping. Not for the weekend backyard tech. The upside is it's possible that this is something that can be repaired at component level. And please don't kill the messenger. Although the solution may not be what you wanted to hear it is based on more than 20+ years as a certified technician. As a few noteworthy tips: (1) Take the unit into the shop you choose, don't have them charging you for pickup and delivery. (2) Always find out the cost of an estimate before you take it in and when you take it in get the estimate first before authorizing repair. (3) Find a reputable shop. Like going to the AMA to locate a doctor don't hesitate to contact NESDA to find a reputable tech. http://www.nesda.com/locator/state_search.php Good luck. Bill
