Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Sony KF-50WE610 I have a 3 1/2 year old Sony 50" projection LCD TV. Last week the screen went completely green, kind of like watching TV through a camcorder set to night vision. I called Sony and they advised me to unplug the set and then plug it back in. This seemed to solve the problem for about 15 minutes before the screen went green again. Resetting would again give me about 15 minutes of normal color before it would go green again. Any one know what is causing this problem thanks

    I had a service tech come out to check the set. The Optical Block is defective and needs to be replaced. Parts $950 plus labor. No warranty coverage because the set is 3 1/2 yrs. old. I called Sony they are not offering any extended warr. on this TV. From what I have read on the internet this is a widespread design problem with all models of this style TV. Sony is not admitting that there is a problem with the design & is not backing thier product. I hope you have a better outcome

    I wrote a letter to the CEO and to thier claims department, they decided to to replace the optical block for just the cost of labor ,$300. So give a letter a try . and check out this link.

My Sony LCD Projection TV (KF-60XBBR800) will play for a minute or so, then go black for about 30 seconds while the STANDY light flashes continously. Someone told it it was probably a bad projection lamp...

Hi ,
Yes the lamp can be the problem, sonys do that, they kind of reboot.
the light goes out and the green light binks and sometimes it start up again eventually it doesn't and the green light blinks forvever.
I've been a TV tech for 30+ years and still work on these weekly
hope this help
