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!

Sometimes when we are wearing tight clothes and put mobile phones in the pocket, the screen gets pressed against coins or keys in the pocket. This damages the screen. I think this is the case with you. Now, the only solution remaining is replacing the LCD.

Hello i have a 50 inch LG plasma tv i have a yellow line going from top to bottom about 3/4 of a inch wide i took it to get looked at and the guy doesnt know whats wrong have any suggestions what to do it...


Frfom what you describe this is caused by a faulty vertical convergence IC

It may come that the whole board will need replacing, rather than just the single part. It will also need complete resetup of the convergence guns so it's not a DIY. I suggest taking it to a REAL TV repairer. Not back to the one who couldn't work out what the problem was.EST cost for parts and labour $200 But get quotes.

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.

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.
Bill
