Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDP-57XBR2 57" Rear Projection Television

Big vertical tinted stripe on screen

A very annoying problem has cropped up with my otherwise wonderful TV: major tinted vertical stripes across my screen. Note that the screen should be black here:


The middle stripe has a greenish hue, and the blue is stronger to the left of the stripe. It is most obvious when displaying darker colors, and seems to wash out with more saturated images. It is present with all input modes but doesn't appear to be "burned in". The problem developed suddenly - I only noticed it today and it's very obvious. Is this salvageable?

    The problem eventually resolved itself. Interestingly enough, the bands shifted slowly to the left until they worked themselves off the screen and didn't come back. I believe it was the blue tube that was going wonky. There was nothing on the lens, and nothing wrong with the projection mirror. I suspect it was something with the video circuit itself (dust maybe?), but for now I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it doesn't come back. Thanks for helping!

Need more information:
Can you isolate which color is causing the banding?
Is there something ON the lense itself?
Is the projection mirror broken or bent?

I have a 52 inch Samsung TV, on the screen have solid, color vertical lines on the right, about 1/8 wide, on the same time the half of screen blink on the right too.


not knowing the model... i will try to help with this common samsung issue, if i can. / unplug the tv, and wait a few minutes to avoid shocks. / remove back panel. you will see several ribbon connectors, (about an 1" to 1 1/2" wide) usually near the bottom. / carefully remove the ribbon (ONE AT A TIME) and clean the contacts GENTLY with a pencil eraser. (DO NOT use chemicals) / reinsert the ribbons and try the tv. // vertical stripes are almost always the result of poor contact between ribbon and socket. / NOTE!. you can do a quick test before opening the set by [carefully!!!!] twisting the screen and watch to see if the vertical stripes change or disappear. / if the stripes change, bet on it being the ribbon contact problem.//// hope this helps, it has worked on a number of TVs.------Jay

52" Mitsubishi projection TV has stripes


Depends on exact model number; if a WD-52525 or something very similar pitch it---they are falling apart and have all kinds of troubles.

Google the full model number with "problems" to see what issues the set has like a hundred bad surface mounted caps etc.

Blue tint across screen and black shadow of sort


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!
