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

2 Answers

My KDF-42WE655 works great but the screen has a green hue in the middle of the screen and blue dots randomly all over. I also see a blue hue on the left side of the screen from the top to bottom about .5'' to 1'' wide like a blob on the left side. I was told it is the Light Engine. Should I look elsewhere? or just replace this part? I have found this part for sale from 299.00 used to 1900.00 used. Is it worth it? Or just buy a new TV?

Blue hue on left side and tiny blue dots on most of screen. The dots seem to dissapear and reappear if you look closely. I changed bulb about two months ago and it seemed to just get worse since then.


The blue hue on the side and dots are most likely a damaged (burnt light or optical light engine).

This is very common and you may want to contact Sony as there were programs for some models even if OUT OF WARRANTY.


The lamp in the set shines into a a L shaped engine with baffles and lens (red, green, and blue segments) and Blue is closest to the heat from the lamp and usually is the first place to get this type of damage.

I do not enjoy giving bad news but this is what I am sure is your problem.

Blue dots on the screen


thats usually attributed to the light engine or the lens being defective. You may want to check with sony as I think there may be the possibility that they had an issue with certain models being eligible for a free repair on certain models. Check with sony support.

Kf-42610 blue hue and blue dots on screen


Hi Guys

The Blue dots or discolouration you are seeing is due too the Blue LCD screen having cracked from excessive heat. This normally happens when you have a power failure while the Television was on. This obviously because the Blue LCD sits next to the lamp - the main cause of heat. The correct part number on the 60" is A-1086-952-A. It is very, very ,expensive.

Sorry to have been the bearer of bad news. Good luck : )
