Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV
I was moving stuff in my rom and when i turned my TV on in its new position it was purple but faded to blue at the edges of the screen and white/grey in the middle. its an old TV but it was workinjg fine this morning?
The problem is your color purity is off. The earths magnetic poles cause this to happen on all direct view televisions, when you move a television or turn it from its usual viewing spot. You may have noticed a thump sound when you first cut on the television after its been off for a while, this is the televisions degaussing circuit mixing the color phospers in the picture tube. One way to clear this is to turn off the set for at least 20 mins and turning it back on this usually clears the purity. Have you ever had a older computer monitor and it had a button on it that says degauss an press it and you see a rainbow of colors then the screen goes back to normal. Well your television also has one too but does it when you first cut on the television you can't see the rainbow effect because the screen is still dark at this point.
If this does not work have a technician come out and degauss the set for u manually, using a degaussing coil.
Hope this explains your problem,,
