Re: Color problem in corner

Do you have a speaker or fan or any type of electrical device around that area next to the tv? If so move it. Also either way yes or no turn the set off then let it sit 30 mins and turn it back on to degause the screen. If none of the above solve this get a deguassing coil and try manually degausing the screen. If this has no affect then the shadow mask inside the tube is warped and the tube would have to be replaced to correct the problem.

PT-47wx42 color problems


This could be a heater-cathode (H-K) short in the CRT, a failure of a component in the chroma circuits or video output (driver board), or bad connections there or elsewhere. Don't panic - heater-cathode shorts in CRTs can often be worked around.
Note: before proceeding, it is a good idea to make sure that the screen is degaussed - else you could be attempting to track down problems with the wrong color!
Some simple tests can confirm or rule out other possibilities.

  • Compare the voltages for the video drive signals to the CRT on the little board on the neck of the CRT with the CRT both connected and unplugged. A schematic will help greatly in locating these signals.
    • If there is a significant difference especially on the bad color, then the CRT is a likely candidate. Try tapping the neck of the CRT GENTLY (with it plugged in and while viewing a picture) to see if it is an intermittent problem.
    • If there is no significant difference, you may have a bad driver or a problem in the chroma circuits.

  • Look for bad connection/cold solder joints, probably on the little board on the neck of the CRT. Use an insulated stick to gently prod the board and its components in an effort to induce/cure the problem. Look carefully for hairline cracks around the component leads.
  • You can swap components between two colors and/or test with an ohmmeter on that driver board to determine what is bad. The nice thing about color monitors and TVs is that there three copies of each of these components. Swapping and/or comparisons between these is an excellent diagnostic technique.
  • Another simple test: Disconnect the cathode for the full-on color from its drive. If it is still full-on, there is probably an H-K short in the CRT since the only way to get each color on the screen is via the cathode connection to the CRT neck board. If it is removed and there is still that color, the current must be taking another path inside the CRT.
  • Alternatively, interchange the outputs of the bad color with a good one by jumpering on the video driver board (on the CRT neck). If the bad color changes, then the problem is in the circuitry and not the CRT.
So you have to get a tech if the above method doesn't solve your problem and get it fixed..

Color wash at upper right corner of screen and lower left corner, color bleed. Resembles the colors of a florescent yellow or purple highlighter.

Projection TV sets have two common problems. The first is known as a convergence problem. Common symptoms are....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
The other common problem is cloudy CRT fluid in the lens.

Common Symptoms - you TV may have one or more of these...
  • Dull Video
  • Bright video - whiteish
  • Redish video
  • Halos around objects

Sony Grand Wega corners are blue

Hello Wealth744:

The problem is that your LCD optics Engine is failing. There are three small screens much like the size of a nono Ipod screen, inside of the optics engine. Each one a different color Red, Green, Blue. The blue lcd screen is faulty.These can be replaced but labor to do this is intensive and most tech will want to just replace the optics engine. So in short the Optics Engine need to be replaced to correct this problem.

Your optical block is going bad. Contact sony support with your model and serial number. They sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warranty has expired.

Blue color flowing from side and bottom into picture

Sony tech support (no charge) said it was definitely not the lamp.
Their suggestion- By unplugging the TV for a minute then turning back on, the blue color was substantially but not toally reduced.
Perhaps there is an electrical charge building up distoring the color by having the TV in the ready mode for too long and by unplugging, the charge dissipates?
No other phone solution recommended other than calling for repairs.

Re Degaussing

Now Degaussing and convergence are two different things, if you say its degaussing then you should have just a color differential in a certain area, meaning the color should not be arched, everything that passes through should pass throu only with the changing of color. Now if its a convergence the the color may lift upward in an arch, likely separated from the other colors, Red, Blue,or Green. So now which do you think you have? Deguassing usually give you a highish green color or yellow
