Question about Sony KDF-E50A10 50 in. LCD HDTV

4 Answers

Verticle lines following the color spectrum across the screen.

I have the kdf-e50a10 and I have thin vertical lines repeating the color spectrum all the way across the entire 50" screen. You can just barely make out an image through the lines. I'm thinking that replacing the light engine will resolve the issue. Someone also suggested the Q-Box. Does anyone else have any thoughts?

Re: Verticle lines following the color spectrum across...

I have the same problem with the tv, vertical colored lines and all functions do not work. Has anyone found a solution to this? Replacing the b block at our expense is out of the question. Has Sony accepted this defect and extended the warranty on these?

Re: Verticle lines following the color spectrum across...

B Block assy from Sony direct is about $890. It has a core value of $525 for the old part, so once you get credit for the old core, the new B Block Assy really costs you $365. Still too much, but not as bad...

Re: Verticle lines following the color spectrum across...

Had Sony KDF-E50A10 that had the same line problems after 16 months. Was fine at lunch time and when got home from work and turned it on, they were the lines. Want over $800 to fix it. Told me it was the B-Board assembly. Sony was no help. They have exteneded the warrenty on another part that works along with the B-Board but not just the B-Board itself, so probably not any more Sonys. I'm going with LCD now.

Different color vertical lines on screen Sony KDF-E55A20

Go to the last page of troubleshooting in the manual and perform the system reset procedure. Basically hold the Wega "arrow up" as you manually switch the TV off. It will automatically switch back on and reset. I had only vertical colored lines on the screen, with audio but no response to any remote control functions. The rest worked perfectly.

Vertical color lines

I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I turned on the TV and it had colored vertical lines through the whole screen. I called Sony and they had me unplug the TV for about 15 minutes. This solved the problem. They said the boards just needed to be reset. It fixed the problem and I am happy with my Sony once again.

unfortunately the B Box assembly needs to be changed in these and price of the part alone is more than half the cost of a new tv
