Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blue dots increasing on Screen.

It started off with just a couple of dots (in the center of the screen). It has increased 10X in the past week. When a scene with a lot of black, it looks like a small galaxay.

Is it worth it to have Sony come out or should I just start pricing new TV? Of course my warranty just expired a few months back.

Defective light engine. I would start looking into a new set. Most DLP mfg's have stopped production because of new technology and high failure rate of the light engines. It's not worth the investment.....Sorry!

your capacitors are are bad open it up check the capacitors with any bulges in them and then go to radioshack and buy the capacitor with the same rating to replace. It is actually very simple. If it is under warranty still take it back

There is a red dot near the center of my Vizio tv screen, what is it?


if just a single tiny dot it is a bad or defective pixel in the front panel-usually there from first time the unit is powered up but from a distance may not be noticed--almost never gets worse or increases in size. Unless set is under warranty do not worry about is as a Panel(entire front screen unit) usually costs more to replace then the entire TV.

The optical block is most likely causing the problem. It will continue to get worse. Sony may help with the repair since they have had a lot of problems over the years with their optical blocks across many models. On the older sets they usually only help with the parts cost. The average repair cost for a optical block replacement is $1200.00 to $1500.00. So if they help with the parts cost it really brings the cost down. Their customer service number is 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,
