Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Our Sony Grand Wega suddenly has a green-yellow tint.

My husband moved the tv yesterday to get something behind it and must have somehow dislodged a wire because the picture went off. He pushed in different plugs and the picture came back on. But, now the picture has a green-yellow tint and no red at all. We have tried to adjust the color, brightness and hue, but nothing works. We replaced the lamp about six months ago and it has been fine since then, so I am not sure whether the tv going off yesterday messed up something else or whether it might be the lamp again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

IF IT IS HOOKED UP WITH COMPONENT CABLES (GREEN, RED, AND BLUE) FOR PICTURE AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO, MOST LIKELY THE RED ONE IS NOT SEATED PROPERLY, CHECK BOTH ENDS THE ONE CONNECTED TO THE TV AND THE ONE CONNECTED TO WHATEVER THE SOURCE IS ( SATELLITE BOX, CABLE BOX ETC.

I have a 2006 SXRD 50" TV. The same thing happened to me as the TV warmed I would get this yellowish tint that started to fill my entire screen. This is due to a bad optic block. Sony actually had a recall on this and was able to get a new one and have it installed. Here is a link explaining what it is. You might still be able to get a new optic block if your model number is affected.

Yellow tint


The LCD green or blue inside the optical block is defective now. the optical block is the core of the tv (is the projector inside the unit "expensive"). make sure calling to Sony company and try to see in your particular serial # is covered under an extended warranty for this particular set. or at least ask them where you can get a good autorized workshop close to your area.

Picture on Sony KDF-60WF655 has a yellow tint after 30 mins on


This TV is known for issues with the optical block(light engine) The discoloration is coming from the LCD panels in the light engine that have been damaged by the intense heat produced by the lamp. There is a class action lawsuit settlement between Sony and the New York state attorney general's office. Sony agreed to cover these problems going back 4 model years. if you had to pay for the repairs on this TV, you could expect to pay more than $1000 to replace the light engine. Call Sony customer relations at 1-800-222-SONY
and tell them you want this covered per the agreement I mentioned.

Greenish yellowish tint on the tv


I have been advised that the color/light engine of the TV fails often and will typically create a green tint on this unit. I have one on order to get a replacement installed. BTW, it is not "user serviceable" and (for me) will require moving the TV to the repair shop for the change-out.
