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

2 Answers

Recall? Let me get this straight. You contacted Sony and found that there is a recall on these TV's through Dec 2008? You actually had a repair done and Sony covered it? I bought mine through Sears too, Dec 2004

    Have Sony Model KDF-42WE655. Picture just died and red lamp light started flashing. What replacement lamp is needed? Notice there is some discussion of a recall on this model. Why?

    Have not done anything yet

    Have enjoyed the television for almost four years now. How easy to replace lamp?

    We bought our television in Feb. 2005 and the picture is almost completely covered in blue spots. We also have trouble getting the television to turn on and off, it blinks the light and takes forever.

    We purchased our 37 inch Sony Wega from Sears less than 3 years ago... Suddenly when you turned the TV off... you couldn't turn it back on.. we have the same stupid light flashing and can't turn the TV back on... I thought Sony was a good brand that you didn't have to worry about... I know now and I don't think I will ever buy Sony again..... This problem I now can see is common, which most likely means factory defect and I phoned Sony and they won't do anything..... Does anyone want to purchas a 150 lb paper weight?

Cruise control does not work


If you have not had the recall done, you need to contact a ford/lincoln dealer to get it done or looked at-even if you did have it done, I'd get them to look at it because it is a known fire hazard-they will look at it for nothing, and repair it if the recall has not been done or fix it if it has been done and the repair caused the problem. This is a serious issue, it can actually catch fire when parked, and has been the cause of a lot of damage.

The Optical Block is the problem Sony has has a major issues with them. It may still qualify for a recall where Sony will pick up the tab for repair as if it was a warranty repair. From the manufacture, you have a 1 year parts and labor warranty. If you had purchase a extended warranty, you will need to go back to the place of purchase to get it taken care of. It will only get worse.
To check with Sony if it qualifies as recall call 1800-222-SONY. It would be good also to give them both the model number and serial number.
I hope this helps,

My 60 inch Sony flat screen has a green color to everything. I have replaced the lamp.


Hello.
Unfortunately most expensive part in your TV - optics block - is gone bad. Sony issued recall that is already expired for most of the models. I would still recommend you to contact Sony and figure out if you still covered under recall. If not - repair might cost somewhere in $800+ range.
Sorry for bringing bad news.
Maybe it's a time for new TV.
Regards.
Russ.

Sony kdf50e2000


id ask for the money back on the tv since its covered by the ext warranty.if they only want to fix it one time knowing it will do the same thing again they should take the tv back and refund your money instead of trying to make you buy another tv from them.there is also the better buisness bureau you can report them to to get a refund if nothing else helps.i would not settle for either of the deals they are tring to offer, if they had a recall on the set they should have notified you of that so you could return the tv then and not have this problem now. tell them you simply want to return the tv for a refund since it has the recall and buy another tv other than sony
