Sony-50A2000 HDTV color issue

I replaced the lamp on my Sony-50A2000 HDTV in June of this year and now I'm noticing a yellow cast in the picture. Could this be related to the lamp or can you tell me what I might do to adjust the picture color to fix this? I've tried adjusting some of the picture settings but it does not appear to affect the coloring problem I'm seeing.

Your light engine is going bad. I would get an estimate first before trying to net fix.

The problem is the optical block and nothing else but. Contact the dealer from which you purchased the set to see if you qualify for Sony's extended warranty on this very, very expensive part, which may be covered by a class action lawsuit Check here http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=367&mdl=KDS60A2020 The lawsuit covers all the KDS models. It seems that Sony continued making these rear projections even though it knew the optical block failed prematurely. When you get it fixed, go to setup and make sure the cooling fan is on HIGH and power saving is ON. Both of those features will extend your TV's life, including the optical block and the projection lamp. Further, bring a portable compressed air tank to the TV and, with a narrow nozzle, empty it into every opening in the set's back. At least once per month, check for dust settling on the rear of the stand behind the TV -- when it gets thick, get the air tank.

The color is off. Everything looks either green or yellow.


This is a light engine that is failing and a VERY common issue. Contact Sony because the warranty on these light engines was extended until June 30th of this year under bulletin E30020889. It is probably worth it as a consumer to call and see what they will do for you since this was really a design flaw. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

Sony KDS-50A2000 - bulb replaced but picture still yellow


Hi,It sounds like a light engine problem Sony is having.Basically the light of the lamp goes through tunnels that have mirrors that direct the lamp to 3 main LCD chips,These 3 LCD chips are blue,green, and red they blend to create the image and colors.When they start to fail you'll get color discoloration like what you are getting.You will need to replace the optical block because unfortunately they don't sell the LCD chips by themselves.GOD BLESS YOU!
