Sony 42'' Grand Wega problem

We have a Sony 42'' KDF-42WE655 that started to get pink, or magenta spots on the screen when it shows a white background. The set is 3 yrs. old, and the extended warranty we puchased ended 3 weeks sooner. We heard that Sony had a problem with the color blue, and that they would repair it free of charge for that problem. But because the color is magenta, they won't. Would you happen to know what the part would be that is causing the problem?

    I have a Sony KDF-42WE655 Rear Projection LCD TV. I also have pink spots on my screen. They seem to be spreading. Is Sony fixing this problem? My set is approximately 3 years old.

The problem has been solved! Although the 3 yr extened service warrany we purchased through Sears ran out 3 weeks before, to our suprise, sears contacted us and said that Sony was going to fix the set free of charge! The serviceman came today april 14th, and put a whole new projector in the set. He said that if we where to have paid for it, it would have cost us$2119.00 Sometimes miracles do happen.

Spot in center of screen, if the color pictureis black the spot is blue, if the picture is white the spot is yellow.


Spots in screen is commonly caused by defective LCD on the optical assembly. LCD replacement is very difficult. I suggest to contact the nearest service center at your area.
