Question about Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Projection HDTV
About 3 weeks ago a yellow rainbow appeared on the screen in the background. Its most noticable when the picture on the TV is light , daylight vs night. It had now spread so the it covers more than half of the screen. It is there on all channels and on CDs. Called Sony but TV one month out of warranty. It seems to me such an expensive TV should not be having this problem.
Um... this sounds like it could be the optical block inside the unit. sony actually has a class action law suit against them for this problem u can view here: http://esupport.sony.com/sxrdsettlement ...
this same thing happend to our TV and we have an extended warranty so the guy came out to repair at no cost to us. depending on the purchase date of your tv, you may be covered in the suit as well, and you can be reimbursed for any expense to repair the issue... you've likely already solved this problem, but for anyone else, i hope this is helpful.

Two possibilitys here: Either the screen drivers are going bad or there is a problem with the decoder board. Testing the decoder board is only replacing it. You can take a towel and gently apply pressure around the edges of the screen and if it dissappears for even a split second, theres something wrong with the screen itself. Let us know :-)
