Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV
I have owned my 42" Wega for almost two years and this past weekend the fan became noisy. I had never heard the fan before a couple days ago and now it is loud enough to be heard over the volume of the tv. How do I get the noise to go away and prevent it from returning in the future? If you recommend some basic maintenance, can you specify whether it could be potentially damaging to the tv if I make a mistake? How do I clean the fan, if necessary? How do I determine the temperature of the tv to see if the fan is working harder to bring the heat temp. down within the tv? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please advise.
The noise is most likely a colour wheel it is next to the lamp have it looked at. it is run by ball and bearings if you shut off the tv and it starts to wind down it is definatly the COLOUR WHEEL

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.
