Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50XBR800 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Sony KF50XBR800 Blue Shading

I've had this Sony KF50XBR800 rear projection TV since June 03, and it has performed flawlessly until now. All of a sudden I am getting a blue, and sometimes yellow tint on the entire screen. It looks almost like the picture has been posterized, if that makes any sense. Still able to watch and see what's going on, and then sometimes all of a sudden it will flash a few times and clear up and be fine. Then, the next time it gets turned on it appears again. Kind of like it gets better the longer it is on. Could this be a problem with the dreaded optical block I have been reading so much about? Thanks...RC

More than likely it is the optical assy. there are light filters inside and after using the tv for a period of time the glue on these filters fail causing the filter to fall. which is what you are seeing. sony has extnded the warranty on most of their optical assy to satisfy the consumers.

I use to have a blue patch at the left bottom of the screen of my Sony WEGA TV. KDL 50WE 665. It,s been expanding fllowed by discoloration. Now today, the screen is black though the power is on. Any...

Difficult to address the black screen problem without diagnosis but the blue discoloration is definitely a bad optical engine. Sony extended warranty coverage for this until June of 2010 but no more. Cost of the part is around $900 so I wouldn't pursue any further repair.

Sony lcd projection tv kf50xbr800 shuts down and

Hey there, from what you are telling me I think the problem is coming from your Power Supply board it sounds like it could be two things

one: the board might have gone bad and its not sending the corresponding voltage to your components and that is why it keeps turning off

example: works ok for a while then gets weak truns off and then gathers enough turn back on

two: the power supply could be over heating and it has a sencor when it gets to hot to turn off this is very rear though

please rate this solution !!!

It is definitely a bad optical block. Sony was offering an optical block replacement under warranty until June of this year, but it has ended now. Ballpark estimate is $700 to $1000 to have the optical block replaced.
