Hello :

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,,
Please leave a comment for futher assistance.

Sony 51" wide screen rear projection tv


Looks like like you have got some burnt fuses near the D-board. What we are looking for are burnt ceramic fuses. Should cost you around 10$for 8 of them. I advice you replace all 6 and then check if its alright..

What kind of connections are you using?

If component (red, green, blue) double check to make sure they are seated properly. I'm thinking it sounds like the blue one got loose.

Picture and Sound fade in an out


4 years? Sounds like the lamp compartment is overheating. Take the covers off the right side (To Access the lamp) and the whole panel on back. This will give you access to the lamp assembly and fans. Get a can compressed air and blow everything out. Try to blow everything towards the right side and pull the lamp and do it seperatly.

Purple tint on screen


Color splases can show up when the sets are move from one location to another or when they have been dropped while moving it,another reason is when a speaker is placed to close to the tv.The tv has an internal demagnetizer witch gets activated when you turn the tv on,I suggest to unplug the unit for about 15 minutes and then plug the unit and turn it on,If the unit was dropped this problem might not be repairable.I hope the information helps .
