I had the same problem red blotch or circle on right side of picture.
It was corrected by an eprom upgrade done 5/5/08 for me free of charge under warranty.This tool should be available to do yourself but I do not think it to be the case.

Good luck

Defective light engine. Contact Sony support. They warrantied a lot of these sets even after the warranty had expired because of so many going bad after 3-4 yrs. Have the complete model and serial number ready when you call them.

Dark smudges/spots on my HDTV screen


The model indicated here Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 is a LCD rear projection and rarely if ever requires cleaning.

If black spots or such are gradually appearing the issue on this model is the optical light engine.

Set uses a LCD engine which the lamp shines directly into and heat from that very hot lamp can damage sensitive baffles inside the engine.

I would suggest also you contact Sony as they have on several models extended the warranty for this kind of issue---Engine is very expensive part and several of these Sony sets were involved in a class action lawsuit--hence they are dealing with them.

Do not take no for an answer if you want them to help you---the hinge that is sqeeks gets oiled...........

Over time your blue CRT in the back of your set develops a fungal growth that covers up the glass and prevents light from shining through clean this off with a cloth dampend with waterd down bleach. While you're in the back of the set clean all 3 of the tubes of with this solution. After that wipe the back of the screen off with a dry cloth. Wipe the delfection screen of as well this is the screen that is diagonal to your front screen it actually deflects light to the back of the screen you watch. These can become very dusty over time and block light. This should fix your problem. If it doesn't the fluid in your 3 cathode ray tubes is cloudy and will have to be changed by a tech.

Poor picture no color


OUCH! LARGE DARK SPOT IN CENTER IS NOT GOOD FOR PROJECTION TV. YOU BURNT THE TUBES. THE LOSS OF COLOR IS THE ROOT CAUSE SOUNDS LIKE A DEFLECTION CIRCUIT PROBLEM. THE TIMING FEEDBACK IS USED TO SYNC THE COLOR CIRCUIT. IF THE TUBES LIGHT WITHOUT DEFLECTION THEY BURN THE CENTER PHOSPHOR COATING INSIDE.

Bright spot on my 52hm95


can see it in certain lighting and even when the TV is off! It will appear lighter than the surrounding areas at times and can be annoying. I called Toshiba and had a service man come out and even though he acknowledged that this is common, Toshiba will not replace the screen.
