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

1 Answer

KDF-60XBR950 Grand WEGA

Recently the picture has developed a 4" dia light purple color in the center of screen during all shows/movies/pictures. Most noticable with gray/light backgrounds. Is the lamp going bad or something else?

    Same issue - mine is blue. Suddenly noticed it. Whenever the image is all blue you can really see how uneven it is, but it appears clearly on a black. tennis ball sized blob top center and darker basketball sized blob dead center. I think it's an LCD panel dying and I'm PISSED OFF.

Models: KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610, KDF-70XBR950, KDF-60XBR950, KDF-42WE655, KDF-50WE655, KDF-55WF655, KDF-60WF655, KDF-55XS955, KDF-60XS955, KF-42WE620, and KF-50WE620.

As technology evolves, Sony continually looks to stand behind the reliability of its televisions. It has come to our attention that a very limited number of televisions manufactured between 2003-2005, after a period of time exhibit a stationary scribble / random line pattern on the screen. Click here to see photos of this symptom.

As part of our commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that for any owner of this model television who paid out-of pocket expenses on or before May 26, 2006 for an estimate or repair service to replace the optical block for this specific issue, Sony will reimburse the customer by mail for his/her parts and labor expenses. To receive reimbursement, please follow completely the directions and terms on the claim form for reimbursement; all claims must be postmarked by May 31, 2007.

In addition, for any customer who later experiences this issue on one of the affected models, Sony will cover the cost of the optical block repair at no charge through September 30, 2007. All other terms of the Sony limited warranty continue to apply.

3 blinks is a lamp cover error, did you make sure that the lamp cover is screwed in tight? Also check the lamp cover for deformity, there is a problem with your model where the set over heats and melts the lamp cover a little causing it not to make connection with the lamp cover switch. Let me know if you find either of these problems? If not we can troubleshoot a little further.

yOU SHOULD HAVE 2 MORE SETTINGS ZOOM AND EXTENDED ZOOM THIS SHOULD FILL OUT YOUR SCREEN, THE REASON FOR THE SMALLER PICTURE WHEN IN REGULAR CABLE IS BECAUSE IT IS SENT IN 4X3 FORMAT INSTEAD OF 16X9.
