Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF-42SX300 42" LCD TV

2 Answers

My Sony kdf-e55a20 Grand Wega 55inch TV that I just bought second handed has had a small blue tint along the bottom right of the screen. It does not seem to be getting bigger but it does change. It also gets worse when I watch a wide screen show where there is a black strip along the bottom. Is there any way to get rid of this blue area on my screen with out spending a lot more money???

Unfortunately the Optical Engine will need to be replaced to fix the problem. It is a very costly repair. Most of these Optical Blocks run around 800.00 for the part it self and labor will vary between 180.00 and 270.00.
You could try to call Sony at 1800-222-SONY
and see if they could help out with the cost.
I hope this helps,

I'm affraid not, this blue shade might be caused by a defective focus block.there are several websites that can give you prices on some rebuilt blocks or light engines, you might wat to check the sony .com website to see if they have any factory notices for your particular model.

Your optical block (light engine) is going bad. A very expensive part. Sony has a history of trouble with a lot of these. Sont will also sometimes warranty them for customers. Contact them with your model, serial, and date of purchase. Good luck.

Yellow tint


The LCD green or blue inside the optical block is defective now. the optical block is the core of the tv (is the projector inside the unit "expensive"). make sure calling to Sony company and try to see in your particular serial # is covered under an extended warranty for this particular set. or at least ask them where you can get a good autorized workshop close to your area.
