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

1 Answer

Picture screen is darker than normal

I get a picture but it seems much darker than normal. I have a 60" Grand Wega that I got 2 years and one month ago. I had the cable box swapped hoping that was it. Before I could see the screen standing at a 45 degree angle in the kitchen, now I can barely make things out. This seemed to suddenly occur recently and I'm at a lost to what may be the problem. Any ideas would be helpful.

    My model was from 2005 which was after the defect but the next day the picture went out and I found out about the projection bulb lasting only 2 years,which I was 2 years and 1 month. Now I have a picture like brand new again. Still love my Wega. Thank you for your assistance.

with SONY extended warranty and thought I would let you all know of the recall.

For models:
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.



/This is a free repair on the optical block/engine. For specifically a road mapping issue. (Where there is sparactic grouped lines on the screen of the TV)

Otherwise there is a full recall on all 50XBR1's and 60XBR1's for ANY video issue.
But the bullentin I do have on that is Confidential due to the amount of claims SONY could recieve. But here is a sample of the bulletin.

Models: KDSR50XBR1, KDSR60XBR1

Subject: Optical Block: Warranty Policy and Part matrix by serial number.

Resolution: As part of Sony’s commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that it is extending the limited warranty (parts and labor) for optical block replacements on the models listed above until October 31, 2008, regardless of purchase date. Authorized servicers should follow the normal process for warranty claims for this issue.

This seems to be common problem with Sony projection tv. I have the KDF-E50A10 that lasted only 2 years. It's sitting in a corner now until I figure out what to do with it. I am not going to spend another grand to repair it!! Never Sony again.

I believe that the board/chip which controls the LCD is defective. I have never seen this but this is the only thing that I know that would explain your problem. Probably going to need a tech to look at it to verify.
