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

1 Answer

Screen blueing My 42" sony projection tv has bluing bottom right of the screen and less so on the right side middle of the screen. I have read some of the responses to similar problems and I gather that the light engine could be the culprit. And that it is very expensive to repair. Could you enlighten me a little more as I may just replace it with the newer LED model? I do like this tv though and would rather repair it if feasible.

    Same problem as jae4341's screen! same TV, same "blueing"problem! If these were sold with a defective part, shouldn't Sony fix it at no charge??

    blue haze in center and lower right side of screen. Seems to be intensifying with time.

    I have the same problem w/blue bottom. Also have a melted lamp light cover, which has not started to melt the inside area of where the lamp light is placed. Sony was no help. Advised that I needed to have a service tech come out to evaluate the problem, if the problem is then deemed a melted lamp light issue Sony would pay for the repair. Still, I would be out of pocket for evaluation cost.

I have small blue dots and a yellow shadow in the middle of my screen


The model indicated uses what is called a Optical Light Engine, it is a very expensive part and likely is your problem---not much else will cause this trouble.

Let me know if you have questions.

Bluish color right coener


I'm afraid, it is problem of optics unit block (light engine), there are 3 LCDs red-green-blue for color picture formation and blue LCD sounds bad, please call local TV tech for fix.
Thanks.

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!
