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

1 Answer

Sony Wega projection tv with cirlce emblazened in center of scree

The tv had a slight problem with blue or purple light bleeding up about an inch into the screen at the bottom center. A repairman replaced some major part. Since he returned my tv it has a large circle emblazened in the center of the screen when it is turned on. The circle is approximately 15 inches in diameter. There is a silohette in the center of the circle that looks like the face of a man wearing a crown. The rest of the picture is out of focus. What in the world could he have done to this tv and is it repairable? This was a wonderful tv. Sony Wega 42 in. KDF-E42A10

The clown face you see is the cap that the repair man (clown) did not remove from the new optical block he/she installed. The optical Block will have to be either removed from the TV so that the cap can be removed OR a crafty individual could take the screws out from around the screen frame and mirror cover and pop it out using a broom handle with a wad of duck tape on the end. In any case, this is mistake that can easily happen (I have done it), but the picture should have been verified before it was returned to you. Make them fix it in your home. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

I have a slight yellowing in the center of my screen. We recently replaced the map, and have tried adjusting all picture settings but the yellow patch remains. It's a Sony Grand Wega, by the way.

Its blue LCD mounted in light engine (optical block) and requires replacement.
Before, the solution was complete light engine replacement but now Sony Service Center will replace blue LCD only to fix it to reduce your repair cost.

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!
