Question about Sony KDF46E2000 46" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Burn-ins? Hello, I have a Sony Wega 46" rear projection TV(KDF-46E2000) for about 2 1/2 yrs now. Just in the last few months I'm getting purpleish/red/blue blotches on the upper right and left hand of the screen. It's more predominent against white backdrops but still noticable with lighter images. Now the blotches are starting to show up in the middle of the screen, though faintly, this is a big concern. Any help would be just great! Thanks.

It sounds like your light engine is on it way out. I would have this verified by a service center. Very costly to replace. They will probably try a new lamp first.

I get a red and yellow bar at the top of the screen


this problem has to do with te optics in the tv...not the lamp. I had the same problem, even after replacing the lamp. I called sony & they are replacing the tv with a 2010 Sony Bravia 40'. Free! For a fee of $325 I could have got a 46" or for $725 a 55". I went with the 40". Try working it out with sony. It worked for me and only took a 5 minute phone call. Good Luck

Blue Vertical Lines on the screen


It means the optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support. They will sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warrany has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.
