Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Some wire colors don't match! They can't match! So which mismatch is correct?

I removed the old light engine, put in the new light engine. I believe I did everything correctly. TV attempts to power up, but can't. Did I mismatch some wire colors?

Dear info248,
A blue tint means that the Blue, or possibly Red, LCD is faulty.
You put in a used engine.

SOURCE: Installed a new bulb. Color is not correct.

The installation of a new lamp will not affect the color of your image.Normally what happens is that because a new lamp will add more brightness to your image,the color issue is then more noticeable,so its possible that the color issue was already there .

SOURCE: How do I remove the G board from a KP-46WT510 sony projection tv?

the wires pull out but a better way to do this is with everything else out lift the board up so bottom faces rear of set--be careful when soldering at the chips a quite a number of surface mounted parts near the pins on the STKS.

SOURCE: problem with sony lcd projection tv kf-60we610 picture color changing

5 Years!!!! Wow...you guys must barely watch any TV for a lamp to last that long. Most people average every 2 Years or so. Just go out and buy a brand new lamp...Approx. $200 plus tax or so. Should solve your problem ;^)

But before you do... just in case... go into your TV Menu and reset your video setting to factory... its very easy to do on screen (no manual required). Cheers!

I have a ceiling fan switch (Westinghouse 77075) that was broken, so I do not know where the wires (black, gray, yellow and purple) went. The speeds are black+gray+yellow, black+gray+purple, and...


I can offer resources:

1) Test switch that was removed, and test for hot connection to narrow down options.

What speed was fan stuck in when switch was removed? Let's say medium speed.
Which connection at fan is hot? Use voltage tester to find hot connection at fan, and match that up with wire-color on switch that was removed.
One and only one wire on 3-speed fan switch connects to hot. And the hot wire is the only wire that connects to each other wire as switch cycles through pull-chain sequence. All pull chain switches follow same sequence: off, low, medium, high.
Let's say old switch was stuck in medium, and you know which color wire connects to hot.
Test switch with continuity tester to see which wire(s) have continuity with hot wire: some switches, it will be 2 wires, and other switches it will be 1 wire. Match where wire(s) were connected, and map that to tests on new switch.

2) Open following link for illustrations and some other links.

You question invites guessing.

Switch is not identified.
Screw terminal colors are not identified. Load is not described.
Maybe you have double switch where 1 switch is single pole and 1 switch is 3-way.
This type switch is wired differently depending on location of hot wire supplying power to 3-way switch.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#TM813

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Use multi-meter and continuity tester from home center.
Screw color is very important for wiring electrical devices.
First step is to note where each wire is located on old switch, hopefully doing that before removing wires on old switch.
And note what color screw that wire connected to.
Take a photograph.
Then determine what each wire does by testing and process of elimination.

Compare screw colors on old device to screw colors on new device.
Use continuity tester on old device and on new device to check screw-terminal relationships.

For additional help, add a comment after testing the screw terminals as described above.

OK, first I recommend you purchase a wiring harness specific to the vehicle. The wiring harness is equiped with standardized wire colors to match aftermarket radios. Then the harness plug situates the wires in the correct pattern to match the vehicle. All you do then is plug it in. You will probably need a trim panel too. I recommend you check out www.crutchfield.com, they have the harnesses, dash kits, and instructions. Hope this helps.

It takes 2 testers.
699b7e0.jpg regular tester

c7b2876.jpg
Continuity tester has battery and light bulb.

Use regular tester to find Hot wire that feeds old-switch.
Remove old-switch from fan
Strip back wires
Separate wires so they can be tested.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare copper wire -or- to green wire -or- to metal part of fan
One of the fan wires will light up tester.
This is the Hot wire.
Mark Hot wire.
Mark which color wire on old-switch went to the hot wire.

Use continuity tester on old-switch.
You know which wire is hot-on-old-switch
Pull chain and test hot-on-old-switch to both of the other wires.
When tester lights up, mark this wire.
Pull chain again and test hot-on-old-switch to both of the other wires.
When tester lights up, mark this wire.
At some point when you pull the chain, the tester will light up both the other wires.
This is the high speed.

Use continuity tester on new-switch.
Repeat the test for old-switch.
Identify which wire will be the Hot wire by process of elimination.
Mark this wire.
Identify high-speed wire.
Pull chain again, and tester lights up on medium speed.
Pull chain again, and tester lights up on low speed
Identify these wires and match pattern to the old-switch

After I pulled the old CD player out of my car the wires end plug dosnt match up to my new Pioneer DEH-11E. Is there a way to make it work or should I take it back.


Hello al_will00,

The color coding of the wires from aftermarket equipment will not match up with vehicle color codes. The new player will work OK when you have matched up the wiring by function. There's 2 ways to do it: 1) Find the color coding of your vehicle wiring and splice/tap into the existing harness; 2) Purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plug in directly.

The 2nd option is best. It allows you to make all of the connections (usually color for color) sitting at a table or workbench insted of from behind the poorly lighted dash. It also allow you to reinstall the OEM radio if you ever decide to do so. Splicing or tapping will make it more difficult.

I'd visit one of the online retailer like www.crutchfield.com or www.sonicelectronix.com to purchase a wiring harness. You can determine the correct model number from various sources, including the manufacturer, such as Metra here. Just enter your vehicle make, model and year information to see a list that the vehicle.

Hope this helps.
