Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Yellow spread The tv is only two years old. A "spill" of yellow (don't know how else to describe it) started at the top about one third over from the left. It has spread all the way to the bottom of the screen and is continuing to get worse. Basic color seems to be greener/yellower and adjusting tint or color is ineffective. HELP please!

If you are the first owner of this tv and you have the orginal receipt contact sony. They will pay for the labor and the parts required to fix your tv. They have agreed to pay for all of this type of problem untill 2009.

Have a hitachi ultravision rear projection lcd tv...has a blue area at top of screen that is slowly spreading downward. What should we do?


The Light Engine is the cause of this. It is not a simple or cheap repair. If the set is over a year old and out of warranty, call Hitachi and see if they would help with repairs.
Hope this helps,

Blue haze spot-yellow tint


I have the same problem with blue haze that just spread out on model 55VS69A ,
tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

Hitach SUCKS.

Picture is distorted


Is your TV near anything magnetic ? This causes picture issues. If the thing is a tube TV then you can fix this fault with a magnet. Call 0845 20 20 118 for help

Blue image growing from corner


Understand I risk getting a bad rating from you, but I thought you should know. You have a bad optical block. Sony was supplying the optical block and covering the labor for replacement until June of this year, but that extension has expired. Your best bet is to contact Sony Customer support at 800-222-SONY. They will probably want an authorized tech to come out and evaluate the set. You may be able to get them to cover the part under warranty, but it may take a letter to the customer service executive committee to get that to happen. I am sorry I could not help more.

Ultrascan hitachi 43" hd tv


Marcus,
What you're describing is convergence and the amps need to be replaced... IK04 and Ik05 are two STK392-110 and Hitachi suggests replacing them with the STK392-150's for greater reliability..
If you're not too capable in electronics this is one to leave for the professionals. But at least you can call around and ask what each shop charges for replacing the convergence amps in this unit...
Hope this helps.

Yellow brush marking on Screen


Your problem is with the blue color,maybe some dirt is sitting on the face of the blue crt and is being projected bigger to the screen,you should try cleaning the face of all 3 tubes,if you familiar with tv service this should help,be careful when removing the back and make sure the set is unplug when you do the cleaning.Let us know how it goes.
