Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV
We have a 50" Sony Grand Wega that is about 5 years old. Recently, the lamp needed to be replaced. After replacing the lamp, the TV now loses all the channels in its memory every time it is turned off for more than a few minutes, and needs to be reprogrammed. For example, if we are watching channel 5, then we turn off the TV and go to bed, the next morning the only channel the TV will get is channel 5, until we run the channel program function again. We are not using a cable box.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
12000 hours you are lucky most last 2000 hours
lamp not the usual suspect for this
confirm black and white on all inputs and it will be more sinister, if only one input, it could be the signal source

This model also has a paper filter for the Optic block that should be changed. No one ever said anything about it. shortens the life of the optic block if not changed.

Well this is an LCD projection TV and it sounds like one of the polarizer filter has gotten out of place so you are seeing at the top of your screen the unfiltered image of the LCD panel.
Will need to go into a shop to get repaired. Call and get an estimate of repair. Actually shouldn't be too bad of a repair cost.
