I have replaced alot of these light engines for this problem. Yesterday I received a letter from Sony saying they are going to give an additional warranty to have the optics replaced. I just checked, your model is one of them and Sony is replacing the optic block under an extended warranty, regardless of the purchase date, until the end of October 2008. Contact Sony for an Authorized Service Center in your area or go to this site to read about it: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=185&mdl=KDSR60XBR1 Have this repair done on your set and it should save you about $1300.00 to $1500.00 on the repair. Hope this helps.

This solves the problem permanently.
First, be sure the television is un-plugged, but know that you can still be seriously injured by an un-plugged tv. Especially if it were to fall out a third story window and land on your head and crush your skull. So be careful even after it is un-plugged.
Next, it is best if you get someone to assist you with this next step, that way you don't have to keep getting up and moving around to the front of the tv to see the screen.... Plug the television back into a 110-120v power source and with your assistant standing facing the front of the tv screen, remove the back panel, and using a 28 to 32 oz Hart knurled framing hammer, very carefully reach inside with the hammer in hand and smash the large mirror that reflects the image.
Then, using a can of flat black spray paint,(dont use gloss paint because it will likely cause an awful glare), spray paint the absolutely single most profane cuss word you are familiar with in reverse on the inside back of the tv screen in giant letters while at the same time scream the "F" word 5 times.
Next, ask your assistant how cool that looked and sounded and get him to help you toss that piece of crap out the front door and into the back of your truck where you can drive to the nearest tv repair shop and dump the remains of that electronic trash right at the front door of that shiesty business. Those people are all thieves. Don't trust a one of them!
Next, either be patient and wait until someone you know offers to give you his old bigscreen or stop being such a freakin' cheapskate and breakdown and buy a new one.
Hope this helps.

Check if it has a scrambled image on all sources ie - DVD- VCR - cable/satellite box. Since the PIP is normal it sounds like the signal source is bad.

Sony Bravia KDF-50E2010 LCD Convergence Problem


Well this is the fix for the usual Ghosting problem....

To bring up the "service" menu, put the TV in standby mode, then press in sequence :

Onscreen Display ( the little screen with the i+ in it )
5 ( channel number 5 )
Volume Up ( upper end of volume button )
Analogue ( middle top button )

The TV should switch on and when it's warmed up, you should see a screen with lots of big green lettering on it.

Press the "menu" button ( middle bottom )

Use the direction dial to move down to "LCD Drivers" and press right on the dial to enter this menu.

Move down to "S H Pos Reg R". It should be "10", change it to "11". ( Left/Right to adjust )
Move down to "S H Pos Reg G". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Move down to "SHPos Reg B". It should be "10", change it to "11".

Press the menu bottom to drop out of the menus, and the standy button to drop to standby. Switch back on, and hopefully your ghosting will be gone hope this works davy mac

Screen goes dull at times


The dulling picture really sounds like a lamp failing. You would need the sony lamp xl-2100u
The ghost image may be easier to fix, sometimes as lcds age you will get a slight shift in a color. deep in the sony menu there is a parameter (menu-setup-imageshift) that will give you 3 levels of correction, this may solve this issue.
