Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The TV powers up just fine, looking great, but after a while all images appear with a red tint over them. You can still see red, blue, green, yellow, etc but with a reddish even magenta hue over. Ocassionally instead of a red tint we get a blue tint over the screen, no reds can be seen when this happens. No image distortion or sound problems, just problems with the color. We've had this TV since summer 2004, please help.

I have the same exact problem. We found a temporary solution is to give the TV a "love tap" on the on the back beneath where it says "SONY." My guess is something is loose in the back. Make sure you don't hit the TV too hard and try different spots if one isn't working.
