Hello - I had the same problem. If you call a tech they will say that the picture tube is broken and that it will cost $350 + labor to fix it because Sony does not make the part! Do not believe that cock and bull story.

All you need to do it to remove the front lower panel where the speakers are located. Behind it there is a cardboard / plywood board fixed on to the TV with 4 screws. Remove this board. you will then find a switch that contains 6 bolts/screws that can be adjusted:- 3 (upper) and 3 (lower) sets of adjustment knobs or large screws that are probably marked as G(for green), R(for red) and B(for blue). You will probably have to adjust them very slightly while the TV is on. Be careful so that you dont shock your self! And Voila, the problem will be fixed!!

I am not an electrical engineer, but work as an IT professional. It saved me a bunch of money, not to say a happy family/household!

Picture all blurred when playing bluray

Connect the blu-ray player into the HDMI port that currently has sky on it. Does it work then? if so the port you were using has failed. If not the blu ray player has failed.

Sony kdf-e50a12u rear projection lcd bravia. red shadows

This is due to you having a projection tv, some projection tvs are really bad for game playing and especially if you have a hdtv. even in the p23 manual it says that you shouldnt use with a projection tv cause it can damage your tv's screen permanently. I personally still play mine but, thats likly the problem.

I have sony lcd hd ready 50inch rear projector tv model number KDF-E50A12U tv comes on after couple minuets tv clicks off to stand by then red light in stand by flashs 3 times gos back to green repets

Three blinks of standby light to Sony TVs indicates that the regulated voltage output from power regulator board is above thatn normal. The problem is with its power supply regulator board. Replace all the electrolytic cpacitors on that board with new ones. Replace all of them including small and large ones, at one time. OK.

Hi i have a sony lcd projection kdf-e50a12u and as i turn it on the green light flashes for a few minutes untill it turns to red along with the light next to it and stays red?

Sir check the lamp of your projection if already damage, if damage replace the lamp and reset also the lamp hour meter. Remove the screws to open the panel labeled "lamp" on the back of the Sony TV. Remove the screws that hold the lamp in place inside the TV. Pull the lamp out. Let me know what is your observation to the lamp so I can guide you. Good day and best regards.

Sony bravia KDF-E50A12U rear projecion tv wont turn on

Hi it sounds like it could be an issue with board that powers the lamp ,it's called the ballast.When you put a new lamp in the ballast has to provide more power ,when it starts to go weak it will not light up.Sometimes you can put your old lamp in and will work fine.Try they might have it right there.Hvae a blessed one!

Depending how long you have owned it and if a Lamp was ever replaced, it probably needs to be replaced. You can check with SONY at
1800-222-SONY and see if they could sell and send you one.
Hope this helps,

I recently bought a sony bravia kdf-e50a12u 50" rear projection tv , and i wanted to hook up my pc . for some reason the picture goes blank when it reaches the windows log in page

Please go to user manual page 43 of your tv which stated...

This TV does not support Sync on Green or Composite Sync.
If a signal other than in the above chart is input, it may not be displayed properly or may not be displayed as you set.
Using the Vertical frequency (Hz) of the personal computer at 60 is recommended.

Try to select proper Display Properties > Settings > Advance > Monitor > Screen refresh rate.

Fuzzy picture

You can't make SD look like HD thats why HD came out, the best you can do is adjust the picture controls to get the optium picture
