Sony repair centre

I have a 5-6 year old Sony Bravia Rear Projection LED TV. It has developed a yellow color on the screen with the exception of a small spot in the middle. What may be the cause of this, and any ideas on cost to repair.

IF you have tried replacing the rear projection bulb and you are still having an issue then the TV's panel is most likely burning out.

SOURCE: Can't not get our Nintendo 64 to work on our new Bravia TV

The N64 can be hooked up with either composite cables (RCA cables: red, white and yellow. These came with the N64) or the S-Video cables (purchased separately from system, s-video, white and red)

The N64 won't ruin the Bravia at all. It will just output in 480i, and the TV will have to upconvert it. No big deal.

As for which plug in to use, use the AV input that matches the composite setup (the input that has red, and white audio inputs, and a yellow video input). If you have an S-video cable for it, then match it to the s-video input on the tv. Most Bravias I've seen have 1 RCA (composite) inputs on the backside and 1 on the side input.

The color of the inputs on the TV should match the color of the cables that plug into them.

I Have 50inch Sony Bravia progetor tv and I have a yellowish colour in the middle of the screen

One of the color projectors CRT's is burnt out or is malfunctioning, the cost to repair this is very expensive, in the $500 range. With the new Flat panel LCDs now at rock bottom prices (saw a 42" at Best Buy for $499) I would really suggest you scape the old technology instead of repairing it, it will likely develop another problem within a year or so.

Sony bravia kdl52xbr2 problem

hi,hoping that the cable connections are right(check the cable connections once again)..... Sounds like you may have a problem with the video driver boards? I would call up the store where you bought it and ask for a new set or service on this one.
More than likely this is a bad display (lcd screen) the drivers in the lcd display have some problem...... the tv is just a month old so you are still under the warranty period....... just contact the sony outluet where you purchased or the manufacturer for servicing of tv

I have a Sony Bravia LCD TV. Half the screen has colored lines instead of the picture. What would cause this and can it be repaired? Or should I just purchase a new tv? This one is less than two years old.


The problem is with the lamp of the television, it is having some fault that is why it is giving you a half screen with colored lines, once it becomes completely damaged, there will be no display on the screen.

The lamp is fixable, and you do not need to replace the television.

All you need to do is to have a repairman check and replace the lamp of the television and it will be okay once again. This is quite affordable.

All appliances are bound to develop one fault or the other, and there is no fault that is beyond repair except for some repairs that could cost as much as getting a new television.

It does not matter the years it spent, an appliance can develope fault the moment you get it home from the retailer that sold it to you.

Simply replace the lamp and your television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

The yellowing of Sony’s KDF-60WF655 rear projection is a problem with the SXRD optical engine. This turned out to be a big problem on many of the SXRD TV's. Sony actually had a class action lawsuit that covered the optical engine for 5 years. My unit was replaced in June of last year (2009) about 1 month before the coverage ended. My unit had a bad yellow streak on the right hand side. Sony no longer covers the cost of replacement, as the class action suit has now expired. Sorry for the bad news. Its not clear if a new optical engine will suffer the same fate after a few years. Sony’s rear projection TV's are amazing and the picture rivals many of today’s LCD's and Plasma's. Any authorized Sony Tv repair shop will no exactly your problem and will be able to give you a fixed price to repair.
Hope this helps

Yellow brush marking on Screen

Your problem is with the blue color,maybe some dirt is sitting on the face of the blue crt and is being projected bigger to the screen,you should try cleaning the face of all 3 tubes,if you familiar with tv service this should help,be careful when removing the back and make sure the set is unplug when you do the cleaning.Let us know how it goes.
