Sony Shadow on top of screen

I have a Sony Bravia KDF-50E2010 rear projection TV. There is a 1 inch deep pinkish coloured shadow across the top of the screen. Can anyone advise if this can be fixed by adjusting any of the menu settings.

    I have a 2000 model and it only started showing up after I replaced the lamp/bulb. It is called an Optical Block.. something or other. I called Sony 2 days ago and they are running a special program for the E2000 series. IF you qualify you can upgrade to a new tv for a hugely discounted price, or they can replace your tv for a slightly smaller one free of charge or try to repair the one you have free of charge. It is worth it to call Sony and find out if you might be able to get into the program. It is called the E2000 Special Program. Our TV is a little over 2 yrs old and we qualified. Good luck

Well this is the fix for the usual Ghosting problem....

To bring up the "service" menu, put the TV in standby mode, then press in sequence :

Onscreen Display ( the little screen with the i+ in it )
5 ( channel number 5 )
Volume Up ( upper end of volume button )
Analogue ( middle top button )

The TV should switch on and when it's warmed up, you should see a screen with lots of big green lettering on it.

Press the "menu" button ( middle bottom )

Use the direction dial to move down to "LCD Drivers" and press right on the dial to enter this menu.

Move down to "S H Pos Reg R". It should be "10", change it to "11". ( Left/Right to adjust )
Move down to "S H Pos Reg G". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Move down to "SHPos Reg B". It should be "10", change it to "11".

Press the menu bottom to drop out of the menus, and the standy button to drop to standby. Switch back on, and hopefully your ghosting will be gone

You have a bad polarizer. LCD TVs have no convergence ICs. stop giving bad advice.

The Fix for this TV lies inside, very much inside. when you fully take it apart, there is an aluminum bezel around the screen you have to take that off, and then you will see these goldish tape strips, they are very crapply attached, its hard to solder plastic tape so the connections crack from streches, and some tvs once the tv has warmed up after 10 mins, you can shut it off and turn it on and will be fe fine. You really have to tape them down or insert some rubber tube in between the bezel. Its a delicate operation because it is very very easy to break the lcd. BUT dont forget, there is connection on the bottom as well. make sure bottom right is pressed down, the connection tape that is.

    Note a guy on the top talking about the menu, that probably will work, because i imagine if u tell the tv to shift which pins it uses, the problem will go away.

The blue shadow is a sign of a bad light engine. this is a common problem for this model. Fixing this type of problem is quite expensive. Light engine Costs you several hundred of dollars nearly to the price of new TV set.

Picture shadow on rear projection Sony big screen TV


You have 2 distinct problems that should be addressed separately. Please repost the Samsung problem. I will address the Sony problem here.

If the "shadow" makes the picture seem somewhat of a 3D one, the problem is with the convergence circuit. This could be as simple as bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and would like to attempt the repair, update this and I'll provide more details and instructions.
