Question about Sony KDF-50E2000 50" HDTV
There are red, green and blue bands at the top of the TV. It started about 2 or 3 weeks ago and has progressively gotten worse now covering around 3 inches of the top of the screen. I'm thinking it is the convergence and was wondering if that was something I could replace on my own without getting a tv repair tech involved. I bought the TV about 16 months ago so I'm kinda bummed out this has happened so soon. Please help, thanks!
I have the same TV with the same problems. Sony has issued a recall for these tvs. Contact sony and will fix it for free or give you a discount on another tv.

This is an optical block problem and to fix cost's nearly as much as the tv!!! lucky i had extended warrenty, i had only had the tv for 13 months now i have had it for 18 months and the tv now wont turn on !!! i will never buy sony again!!

I would suspect the optical engine as the likely cause of your problem. it would be safe to say that yes it is most likely the most expensive part to replace in that tv........did you get an extended warranty?
