Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV
The first lamp went out at a little over a year old, second lamp went out at another year old, but on replacing the second lamp the casing that surrounds the lamp and the plasctic cover is melted. The fan behind the TV works, sony says they can't do anything. Has anybody ever heard or seen this?
I am having the same problem with my kdf42we655 model. except I also have the blue/pink blobs all over the screen. Sony came last week to evaluate and were pointing to the amount of dust in the set... What a crock... Dont know what theylle do yet but I am ready to get a lawyer and fight this. They know there is a problem and dont want to back it up... Ill never buy Sony again.. And btw. if your buying a new tv and you a sony fan,. look at samsung.. They are building the new lcd screens for Sony...At least Samsung stand behind there product and costs a lot less than paying for the Sony name..

Our TV metled as well. We had to get a whole new tv because the plastic melted throughout the tv. And just like the show "lost".... there are others. See this forum post and feel free to email me if you have trouble getting help. I have all the phone numbers. We had to deal with Sony for 4 months .
