Sony KDS-R50xbr1 50" Problems

I have had this Sony sXRD 50" TV mfor just under 3 years. Just under a year old i had the "Green Blob" Got it repaired. About a year and a half later got the Red light indicator that the lamp was blown. I replaced the lamp 2 months later I had the same indicator light (lamp blown Again) This time the repair company said replaced the Q box, Antenae switch and lamp. I tried arguing with the extended service contract company and Sony to replace the TV with no luck. I am very frustrated to be without a TV now 3 times for over 70 days total. I am supposed to get my TV back at the end of this week. Do I have any other recourse.? Fortunately I have not needed to pay for service but just want a working TV.

Here's the best way to get Sony's and/or the extended warranty company's attention and possible help.

Send an old fashioned letter to Sony and your extended warranty provider outlining the problems and your concerns regarding your TV. Make sure to prominently indicate that a copy of the letter is being sent to the complaint division at the attorney general's office in your state. After having to settle claims surrounding their optical block (light engine) issues Sony now understands that failure to address their customer's complaints may result in another judgement against them.

Good luck and give 'em hell!

I have the same problem and I think that maybe the best solution is to join the lawsuit against sony because it is not fair that we spent a lot of money for our tv's and now we have to deal with a lot of problems I called the lawyer and he answered my call this tv comes with a lot of problems

Sony KDS-50A2000 screen is in green tint


My Sony KDS 50 A2000 is 17 months old. Its the 50 Inch SXRD projection model. About two weeks ago the screen developed a green tint with cannot be tuned out, then a few days later the message began to appear on the screen that the bulb was nearing the end of its life and must be replaced.
Fortunately I have the Circuit City extended warranty.
I called and within just a few days a serviceman came out and replaced the projection bulb.
The Result: No change in the picture, the green tint remains on all channels, so I'm awating the next service call. Under the service warranty they have the option to repair or replace this set. If indeed this is the light engine (optical block) which I suspect and its going to cost $1,000 or more I may be looking at a new set.
When it works this is a great TV, but I have had three Sonys now including two other standard CRT models and now this one joins them in the junk heap, the other two also bit the dust after just about two years. Is it time to give up on Sony?
I know they have a class action suit on a similar model for this same problem. Caveat emptor
