Question about Sony KDS-55A2000

Open Question

Need to replace optical block

My tv has a green blob in the picture. From everything I've looked up, I need to replace one of the optical blocks. I've tried to look up prices, but it seems to be pretty variable. One site says I could get the part for less than $300 while Sony's parts department said it'd cost me closer to $1300. From what I've been able to look up, I need part number A1203195A/B. I've checked partstore.com with no luck. Any chance the part's less expensive than either of those numbers?

SOURCE: We are noticing a green tint on our Sony KDS-R50XBR1

You have what is referred to as the "Green Blob". Sony messed up bad with the Optical Light Engine. They didnt realize until months after releasing the model you and I have they had a huge problem. So they figured not all Engines were bad. So technically, they havent recalled. I went through several months of talking with Sony and my warranty. You will need to call a tech and have them check to make sure. My tech knew what it was by me telling him over the phone. Hes worked on a more than he cared to say. Sony will play games. They will want a considerable deposit put down before sending the new Engine. And if thats not the problem...they keep your money!!!AAAAHHHHH!!!!I feel for you. I pray you have better service than me. Its been a year since. so maybe they are better. God Bless!!

I have a older 2006 SXRD rear projection TV. I had the same problem after the TV warmed up this yellow tint started in the corner and crawled its way down the TV. It turned out that Sony had a recall on the optic block of the TV. If you replaced the Lamp and adjusted the color this kinda sounds like the same problem. Here is a link explaining it. In this article it shows up as a green haze and blob, but in my TV it manifested as a yellow tint.

Hi:
The only way to repair this is to replace the optics engine assembly, Light engines are rather cheap these days, try looking on www.tristatemodule.com for a new or refurbished one.

Green picture?


If it's a Sony LCD projection, you may have a light blob. It's caused by a defect in the LCD chip Sony manufactured for all of these TVs. You'll need to replace the chip by buying a new light engine, or finding someone that can do the repair for you.

Sony had a recall on these, but not everyone got a fix. The lamp's intense heat melts the LCD chip inside, so you'll need to replace that optical block eventually.

I just replaced the bulb in my Sony 55'' Grand Wega. the picture looked fantastic the first day. turned on the TV the next day and everything that should have a ''white color'' looked pink. the blues...


Please adjust TINT control of Video Settings in Menu that will adjust color tone of TV. I do not think this problem is related with Lamp because TV screen does not have any color blobs or spots.
Above solution is for Sony KDF-55WF655 model TV, if your model number is different, let me know.
Thanks.

Green line running vertically along the edge of picture


If its a LCD projection TV (such as Sony Wega, Hitachi, Epson, Philips, and some Panasonic, some Mitsubishi), and the green image is in the whole screen or just one part as a blob or a line. Is most probably that one of your LCD Color Filters is damaged (burned out or starting to get busted), I don’t know if you can just replace the color filter, I believe you need to change the whole light engine system or the optical block. There are some places around, I found some on ebay but you should definitely try on discountdashmerchantdotcom their price range $260.00 - $330.00

Screen is green


You probably have the infamous green blob optical block problem. There was a lawsuit on this for the previous generation. Sony warranties the optical block for 2 yrs from date of purchase, but not labor. Expect $350-$500 in labor...

I have it too...These tv's are horrible quality. I will NEVER buy Sony again.

Green Smear


It sounds like your optical block has failed. If you can see the picture but it has a green smear through the picture, this is likely the problem. Sony has extended the warranty on the optical block and is covering parts and labor for the repair. Contact Sony at 800-222-SONY to schedule a tech to look at the TV and replace the optical block
