2003-2004 Model Year Grand WEGA Televisions:
Models: KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610, KDF-70XBR950, KDF-60XBR950, KDF-42WE655, KDF-50WE655, KDF-55WF655, KDF-60WF655, KDF-55XS955, KDF-60XS955, KF-42WE620, and KF-50WE620.
As technology evolves, Sony continually looks to stand behind the reliability of its televisions. It has come to our attention that a very limited number of televisions manufactured between 2003-2005, after a period of time exhibit a stationary scribble / random line pattern on the screen. Click here to see photos of this symptom.
As part of our commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that for any owner of this model television who paid out-of pocket expenses on or before May 26, 2006 for an estimate or repair service to replace the optical block for this specific issue, Sony will reimburse the customer by mail for his/her parts and labor expenses. To receive reimbursement, please follow completely the directions and terms on the claim form for reimbursement; all claims must be postmarked by May 31, 2007.
In addition, for any customer who later experiences this issue on one of the affected models, Sony will cover the cost of the optical block repair at no charge through September 30, 2007. All other terms of the Sony limited warranty continue to apply.

Hey there I think the problem is coming from your LCD chips not your bulb, the bulb has nothing to do with the color or skwiggly lines it just shoots out white light,your LCD chips are burnt and the problem will not stop by changing your light bulb you need to replace the OPTICAL BLOCK the skwiggly line will just get worst with time

I Advise to fixed that Lamp again ( sometime you fixed but one of any wire miss connectivity ).
Or Remove and fixed again all related Jack's you removed lat time.
If everything's OK , then Change lamp. try other one.

no and yes
the lamp warning is to alert you that a timer has expired that clocks the approximated life of the lamp in "hours of use".
it is never accurate and is dependent on whether or not it was reset the last time a lamp was replaced.
reset the lamp timer in the users "setup" menu.
the lamp has NOTHING to do with color, it only provides light.
check the connections between the TV and cable/satelite box...the red.green.blue component connector...the red one is likely loose.
if this does not correct you color problem, your optical engine has failed.
very expensive repair, not for the DIY type guy.
